Having played over 20 festivals this summer, last week the band finished the UK leg of their special guest slot on Europe’s Tour The Earth European 2018 tour and are currently touring the mainland leg of the tour.

On 19th May 2018, King King won three prestigious awards at the UK Blues Awards including Blues Band of the Year, Blues Songwriter of the Year (Alan Nimmo) and Blues Album of the Year (Exile & Grace).

King King took their pedigree to a next level with the release of their fourth studio album “Exile & Grace”. Released in October 2017 via Manhaton Records, 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?).

“Exile & Grace” is King King’s first album of new material since 2015’s multi-award winning “Reaching For The Light.” The new album follows King King’s across-the-board win of five awards at 2016’s British Blues Awards including Best Male Vocal (Alan Nimmo), Best Bass Player (Lindsay Coulson), Best Song (Rush Hour), Best Album (Reaching for the Light) and Best Songwriter.

October 2016 saw the release of King King’s first live album “King King - Live” which shot to the No.1 spot in Amazon’s Best Sellers Blues Chart, backed by a string of sold out concerts.
