To Kill a King / May 2017 London Shows

 
By on Saturday, 18th February 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Five-piece rock band To Kill a King have just announced a series of three live shows in London this May, just ahead of festival season. They also recently unveiled a dramatic new track titled ‘The Problem Of Evil’, which is set to appear on their upcoming third LP, due out later this year. You can check out the promo video for ‘The Problem of Evil’, starring Ruby Bentall, at the bottom of this page. Keyboard player Ben Jackson spoke of the newly announced shows in the context of recording the band’s forthcoming album:

For the last year we’ve been locked in small windowless rooms with nothing but each other for company. So as you can imagine we are super excited to announce these May shows. It’s been too long since we played in London, the venues are all nice intimate rooms with great sound and playing three dates means that we can do three different setlists. We’ll be unleashing our new tunes as well as playing the old favourites and we can’t fucking wait.

The first show of To Kill a King’s “London tour” will take place at Soho’s Borderline, which is currently closed for refurbishment but scheduled to reopen next month. Hackney’s Oslo will host the second show of the sequence, and the final show will be held at Omeara, a new central London venue opened late last year by Mumford and Sons‘ Ben Lovett.

Tickets for the following gigs are available now. TGTF’s past coverage of To Kill a King, including a review of their 2015 self-titled album, is right back this way.

Thursday 11th May 2017 – London Borderline
Friday 12th May 2017 – London Oslo
Saturday 13th May 2017 – London Omeara
