CAROUSEL KINGS GET CUDDLY IN MUSIC VIDEO “LOCK MEOWT”

CAROUSEL KINGS GET CUDDLY IN MUSIC VIDEO “LOCK MEOWT”

New Album, PLUS ULTRA, Coming May 31

Never afraid to show their loveable demeanor, CAROUSEL KINGS are delivering a second peek into their upcoming album through the new video “Lock Meowt,” ahead of the release of Plus Ultra on May 31, 2019. The video showcases the Pennsylvania quartet’s lighter side without straying from their bounce-off-the-wall rhythms and wildly energetic sing-alongs.

A stunning blend of progressive guitars and thumping beats, “This is the most energetic song from the album,” promises founder and vocalist David Alexander. “It is my favorite track from Plus Ultra and has some of CAROUSEL KINGS’ best guitar work ever.” As one of eleven guests on the album, the band brought in their colleague Charles Caswell to round out the smooth groove of the track. Guitarist Will Barovick reflects, “The uniqueness of ‘Lock Meowt’ forced us to explore new territories and having a second shredder is nothing new, but on this particular track we needed to show where pop punk is heading in 2019, while highlighting our early 2000’s influences such as the ever-changing genius of Blink 182 and Brit punks Busted.”

Another partner for “Lock Meowt” was The Catcade, a non-profit cat rescue based in Chicago. The band spent an afternoon filming at their headquarters between performance shots and as Barovick admits, “Cat videos and memes are so fun and we wanted to incorporate that as part of our journey with pets.”

“Life is tough,” adds bassist Cody Williams. “We’ve all been locked out of something in life – from homes and cars to friendships and partnerships – but for me being a country boy from Pennsylvania, I can always rely on a fuzzy animal intervention. They’ll never let you feel abandoned.”

Check out CAROUSEL KINGS first video from the album, “Code Breaker (Smile)” and pre-orders for Plus Ultra are available now in multiple colored vinyl versions, CD, flag, t-shirts, long-sleeves and more, and instant downloads of “CAROUSEL KINGS” and “Code Breaker (Smile).”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
