Information

The roots of King's X date back to 1979 when bass player Doug Pinnick and drummer Jerry Gaskill started making music together. Later on they met with guitarist Ty Tabor and King's X was a fact: an American rock band that effortlessly combines prog metal, funk and soul with sophisticated vocal arrangements. They are an impressive act as a live band, they were support act for arena concerts of Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Scorpions, Pearl Jam and Mötley Crüe. They also performed at the Woodstock '94 festival and this year they find themselves on the bill of Graspop.

King’s X has been releasing albums on a regular base since 1987, but after “XV” (2008) there was a radio silence for quite a while. That doesn’t means these stage animals were idle: they kept touring and performing. A new album is scheduled to be released this year. Drummer Jerry Gaskill says: ‘It has been a while since we made an album. I don’t just want to make a new King’s X album; it must be the best, whatever it takes. I want to believe in it. And I believe this is the right time. Let’s do this thing.’

Support acts

Trope

Trope is an alternative rock band with progressive elements from LA. Their sound falls into the Alt-Prog Rock genre and can be compared to A Perfect Circle and Tool, but with female vocals. Trope is guitarist/producer Dave Thompson, Diana Studenberg on vocals, Fernando Jaramillo on drums and Todd Demma on bass. Since their foundation in 2017, they recorded various demos, which will ultimately result in debut album “Eleutheromania”, expected to be released in the autumn of 2019. The album was created in collaboration with sound engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica), mixer David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel) and Ted Jensen (Eagles, Dave Mathews Band, Pantera, AIC) who mastered the album.
