Courtesy of Majestic Mountain Records:

Majestic people! We’re pleased to announce that The Kings Pistol’s third EP and last instalment of the »Wild Night« trilogy is upon us.

»I Am The King« is coming for you this Saturday! Pre-order opens August 20th at 18:00 CET/12pm EDT/9am PDT/5pm BST as part of a super sick double dip coming at you.

»I Am The King« is an electrically eclectic and raucously rowdy slice of filthy rock and roll, dripping with equal parts soul and sleaze. This is a balls to the wall, no nonsense rock and roll gem, brilliantly brash with lashings of psychedelic wonder and grimy, punky disco fever.

The King’s Pistol have taken their already salaciously clever songwriting and unflappably tight musicianship to the next level and beyond with their third offering, boasting a boisterously addictive collection of tracks fit to soundtrack the most debauched of celebrations, unhinged of nights out or just your garden variety, table flipping fist to cuffs down at the local pub.

Expect more of Pistol’s satiny, lyrical pomposity, chunky riffing and stomping Hendrixain interludes, the epically blasting beats from James Farmer on the drums and of course, the man, the myth, the bearded legend, Andy Shardlow’s bombastic bass stylings tying this rousingly volatile little hand grenade into something akin to a giant, ticking time bomb of intoxicatingly thrilling, rollicking rock and roll revelry.

Ships in beginning of November.
