    King King

    Right now, King King are a band breaking into a swagger.
    There’s no denying the momentum of the Glasgow rockers saluted
    as “the best blues-rock band in the world” (Blues Rock
    Review). But for Alan Nimmo (vocals/guitar), Lindsay Coulson
    (bass), Wayne Proctor (drums) and Jonny Dyke (organ/piano),
    it’s far from mission accomplished. “We’re not stopping to
    smell the roses,” says Alan. “We want to take this band as far
    as we can.”

    If the year ahead weren’t so busy, King King might allow
    themselves a moment to reflect on the triumphs of 2017. In
    another year of quantum leaps, perhaps the main event was
    Exile & Grace. Mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder,
    Therapy?), this fourth album was released October 13th,
    unveiling a tracklisting that bristled with sharply observed
    lyrics and blues-rock firepower. “There’s an underlying theme
    on the new album,” explains Alan. “Some of the main songs are
    about the state of the world, y’know, this beautiful blue
    planet that’s turning into a battlefield. There’s an edgier,
    rockier feel this time around, but you’ve got the soulful
    ballads as well. It’s still King King. It’s just what we’re
    doing now.”

    For a band with press plaudits to burn, it was no surprise to
    see Exile & Grace saluted by the rock media and crowned as
    Classic Rock’s Blues Album of the Year. Likewise, it was
    business as usual as the album stormed to the top of the
    iTunes and Amazon Blues charts. But this time around, there
    was no mistaking the sense of a band making its commercial
    breakthrough, as Exile & Grace hijacked the official UK album
    charts (at #31), putting King King amongst the A-list and
    firmly onto the mainstream radar.
