Earlier this year, Glasgow rockers King King released their fourth studio album 'Exile & Grace' and with the band primed for a major UK tour in early 2018, frontman and guitarist, Alan Nimmo chats to Gi's Jonathan Graham, plus breaks down the band's latest album track by track in this issue's Songwriters Spotlight.
'Exile & Grace' is King King's first album of new material since 2015's critically acclaimed release 'Reaching For The Light,' which saw the band pick up multiple British Blues Awards including; Best Male Vocal, Best Bass Player, Best Song (Rush Hour), Best Album and Best Songwriter. The fantastic new album, recorded at Superfly Studios and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy?), features the singles "(She Don't) Gimme No Lovin'" and "Long Time Running" which have already been significant hits on Planet Rock radio in the UK.
Right now, King King is a band breaking into a swagger, and anyone who has caught the group live in recent years would easily vouch for their ability to conquer just about any crowd.We're not stopping to smell the roses, we want to take this band as far as we can.
