Angels or Kings are a melodic rock band that are the epitome of perseverance. Formed during the 1980’s by ex band members of of Sam Thunder, Circus and Strutz, to name a few, they were able see their dream becoming a reality. Almost 30 years later they released their album: “Kings of Nowhere”, which received wide acclaim. They took some time out to have a chat with us.
Having started as a showcase for the now defunct Now & Then record label through ‘Gods of AOR / The Gods’ concerts, FireFest’s inaugural show was in Bradford before moving only six months later to its adopted home at Rock City in Nottingham.
Head back 30 years and we find a British AOR band, A.O.K (as they were back then) on the cusp of something big. Prestige gigs with Danger Danger and Dare, record company showcases, open air festivals and all the best rock clubs, the bread and butter of touring for a young band fed their hunger for playing live. With songs like ‘Loving The Danger’, ‘Two Souls’, ‘Why Can’t Love Survive’ and more, it seemed certain that A.O.K would become one of the premium melodic rock acts in the UK.
