Preview: To Kill a King at The Joiners (13/03/15)


2 years on from their last headline tour, alternative rock quintet To Kill a King are coming to The Joiners on Friday 13th March as part of their UK and European tour, for the launch of their self-titled sophomore album, To Kill a King.

In the interim, however, they have been far from absent from the music scene. They have supported the likes of Dog is Dead, the Flaming Lips and Bastille – who they joined on tour around both Europe in 2013 and America last year, which marked their State-side debut.

Having released their EP, Exit, Pursued by a Bear at the end of 2014, in addition to the new album earlier this month, their abundance of new material has highlighted their musical development throughout this period. The characteristically mellow and simultaneously powerful tones of frontman, Ralph Pelleymounter, are still to be expected, whilst the additional build-up of climactic guitar bases and synthetic effects, ensure it will be a performance to impress.

They will be supported by up-and-coming bands Waylayers and Bel Esprit. Tickets are still available for their Joiners date (here), the penultimate night of their UK tour, before their biggest show to-date at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush.
