KING 810 release their hotly anticipated debut album, ‘Memoirs of A Murderer’ on 18th August through Roadrunner Records. The official video for ‘Fat Around The Heart’, directed by John ‘Quig’ Quigley (Eminem, Kid Rock) of Chrome Bumper Films also debuts online today at http://smarturl.it/KING810FATH
‘Memoirs of A Murderer’ is a striking, eye-opening and important body of work from the newest members of the Roadrunner Records family. Told in three movements, the album is a reflection on frontman David Gunn’s life within the pressure cooker of ‘Murdertown’, Flint, MI, fired by Gunn’s brutally honest narratives and starkly poetic lyricism. ‘Memoirs…’ sees Gunn confronting the violence that plagues the streets of his dying city, perfectly capturing the despair that litters the lives of those who reside in the belly of the beast. ‘Memoirs…’ is a journey through a post-millennial American wasteland; terrifying, tragic but ultimately transcendent.
‘Memoirs…’ is available for pre-order now from the iTunes Store – http://smarturl.it/memoirs – and purchasers get 3 tracks instantly; ‘Killem All’, ‘Fat Around The Heart’ and ‘desperate lovers’, with additional tracks being revealed in the coming weeks. Exclusive bundles are also on offer at the band’s own store.king810.com.
