‘Another Thing Coming’ is the debut music video and second single to be lifted from the Aussie rockers forthcoming album release – the video is a kaleidoscopic journey of rock through to funk n’ roll. So, go forth and be hypnotized for 170 seconds at maximum volume. With their debut album White Bird/Burn The Sky set for imminent release; let this be a taste of much more fuzz, funk and rock n’ roll to come.
‘Another Thing Coming’ (new music video) – https://classicrock.teamrock.com/news/2015-06-10/welcome-to-the-palace-of-the-king
Steeped in bluesy swagger and riff-heavy psychedelia, this is rock and roll that leaves a trail of denim-clad soldiers and converted non-believers in its wake.
In 2015, it’s time for the White Bird to take flight. From three minute funk-infused rockers through to seven minute Sabbath-esque crushers, Palace Of The King has seized the opportunity to explore every intricate corner of their influences and craft a debut album that captures a band at a point where ‘scratching the surface’ isn’t nearly enough. Standby for an album that tears apart the 100-year history of the blues, adds a distinctly modern edge and smothers a ‘no holds barred’ attitude across 44 minutes worth of riff-a-minute, hook-laden rock and roll.
The ‘freight train’ metaphor may be overused and stale. But you’d be hard-pressed to find one that is better-suited to a band that has played over 200 shows and released a mountain of music at such a prolific rate, all within two years of striking their first chord as a band.
Turn it on, turn it up and strap yourself in for the ride. White Bird/Burn The Sky is about to launch stratospheric.
The all-new 10 track album ‘White Bird/Burn The Sky’ is set for release on 12th June 2015 in the UK via Listenable Records (A.D.A/Warner).
Clocking in at 44 minutes long, WHITE BIRD/BURN THE SKY was largely recorded at ColourSound Recording Studio with mixing duties handled by both Mike Tholen at Rax Trax Recording in Chicago as well as Rick Will at Oxygen Studios in Sydney.
Cover art was once again handled by Kristian Kimonides – Tattoo Artist.
Formed in late 2012, Palace Of The King – nameless at that point – quickly recorded a three-track demo and developed the vision of a six-piece blues-infused rock and roll band. Far from a grave-robbing retro trip, Palace Of The King has just as much in common with Rival Sons, Graveyard and Jack White as they do Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.
The band are to announce dates for a European tour in October 2015.
“Palace Of The King is literally like a huge ground shaking Palace of RIFFS, SOUL and Rock’n’Roll. With more hooks and lines than a hard working Bering Sea fishing fleet they are guaranteed to tangle you up, reel you in and blow you away with their unique six-stringing, soul singing, sexy stomping Rock’n’Roll! They are the real f**kin’ deal” – Joel O’ Keffee (Airbourne)
