The highly anticipated October tour dovetails the release of King King’s new single which is taken from their new studio album, “Exile & Grace” - their first album of new material since 2015’s multi-award winning “Reaching for the Light”.

The new single follow’s 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.

The new album “Exile & Grace” promises to deliver even more of a punch, with killer songs performed with true passion by a fist tight line-up. The album was recorded at Superfly Studios. The first single from the album was mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy).

Says King King’s frontman and guitarist, Alan Nimmo: “"Exile & Grace" definitely has a rockier feel and sound to it. We are following our influences from the Classic Rock genre, Bad Company, Whitesnake and Thunder. We really set out to challenge ourselves with this album. We’ve stepped up the quality of songwriting and pushed ourselves physically in both performance and delivery!”...

King King are no run-of-the-mill band. This four piece is a tight ship, technically brilliant wonderfully entertaining - a band that really engages with their audience and cares about their fans.

Drummer Wayne Proctor and bassist Lindsay Coulson provide a strong rhythm section which is enhanced by the dazzling fingers of Bob Fridzema on Hammond organ and keyboards. Heading the fist-tight line up, is virtuoso frontman Alan Nimmo whose vocals and full - blooded guitar playing mark King King as one of the most exciting rock/blues bands ever - both live and on record.
