Says Alan Nimmo: “I am really looking forward to embarking on our 2020 Uk tour as it feels like ages since we have had the pleasure and opportunity to play on home turf for our amazing and loyal fans! I’m especially exited to get out there and properly showcase the new line-up too! There’s a great atmosphere and camaraderie among us in the band and we’re at our happiest when we’re together on the road so I know that energy will transcend outwards to the audience when we take to the stage. We’ve been working hard in Morse code studios in Glasgow putting together our new album which will be released later in the year, but we can’t wait to let our fans hear some new music live in October and February! I’m very pleased with how the new songs and album is shaping up and how the song writing quality and standard has gone up again. No matter what we do... the King King sound is always there! Can’t wait to see all those familiar King King family faces in the crowd!

King King, who have been going from strength to strength in recent years, took their pedigree to the next level with the release of their fourth studio album “Exile & Grace”. Released in October 2017, the album featured the singles (She Don’t) Gimme No Lovin’, Long Time Running and Broken which became popular on Planet Rock and other rock radio stations. The album scored a Top 40 hit in the Official UK Album Charts.

The album was recorded at Superfly Studios and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy?).
