King King released their fourth studio album “Exile & Grace” in October 2017 via Manhaton Records. The album features the band’s singles “(She Don’t) Gimme No Lovin’” and “Long Time Running”, which have been big hits on Planet Rock radio in the UK.

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.
