The Press Release:
It is with deepest apologies, that KING’S X must announce that the band will be cancelling their upcoming European Tour, including their appearance at the Veruno Prog Rock Festival in Italy, due to a family emergency.
Says KING’S X, “We are truly heartbroken that we will not be able to see all of our European fans, as we have been clamoring for these dates since we announced them. We would like to let the fans and all those concerned that the band is okay. Please respect the band’s privacy and please give us some time. We are doing everything in our power to reschedule the tour for 2020.”
More news to come on rescheduled dates. Tickets will remain valid for the new dates or refunds can be obtained from the point of sale.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been a fan of the band for many years and I know that a lot of our readers are as well so let’s keep the good energy flowing in their direction to help them during this obviously critical time. I will add more on this as we learn more but at the time of this news update we don’t have any idea as to what is going on and we shall be respectful of the bands private lives. Good luck just the same.

As we recover from the crowd-crushing madness that is the NY Comic Con, I’m making my way through press releases and wanted to share this update about the legendary rockers in Kings X. Check it out.
The Press Release:
Australia’s leading international independent record label, Golden Robot Records, continues to grow at an unprecedented pace. The label is absolutely thrilled to announce that globally revered, Billboard-charting rock icons KING’S X are now part of their ever-growing international roster. KING’S X recently signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records which will see their long-awaited forthcoming new album released worldwide in 2019 via Golden Robot Records’ partners in the U.S., Europe and Japan.
“I’m really excited to release the next KING’S X album with Mark, Derek and the crew at Golden Robot! May the groove be with us all,” says vocalist/bassist dUg Pinnick. Guitarist Ty Tabor adds, “I’m looking forward to working with Golden Robot Records!”
Drummer Jerry Gaskill adds, “It’s been a while since we’ve made a record. During that time, I’ve been thinking, when and if we make a new record, I want it to be the best we can do. I want to believe in it. I want to make it great, whatever it takes. I don’t want to just make another KING’S X record. I think and hope that we are in that place. I think and hope its time and I feel good about the team we’ll be working with at Golden Robot Records. I’m going do my best. Let’s do this thing.” Continue reading Golden Robot Records Signs Kings X→
