KING'S X has announced the cancelation of its previously announced European tour due to a family emergency.
The band says in a statement: "We are truly heartbroken that we will not be able to see all of our European fans, as we have been clamouring for these dates since we announced them. We would like the fans and all those concerned to know the band is okay. Please respect the band's privacy and please give them some time. We are doing everything in our power to reschedule the tour for 2020. (More news to come). Tickets will remain valid for the new dates or refunds can be obtained from the point of sale."
KING'S X recently completed recording its new album — the band's first in over a decade — at Blacksound Studio in Pasadena, California. The disc is due later this year via Australia's independent record label Golden Robot Records. Helming the disc is renowned producer Michael Parnin, recognized for his work with a varied range of artists, from RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and Missy Elliott, to Andrew Lloyd Webber and Barbara Streisand.
Guitarist Ty Tabor told Heavy New York about how making the new LP compared to other KING'S X recording sessions: "I think every album is a little different. It just depends on where everybody's at, and how much music is brought in [versus] how much we're going to need to create on the spot. We've done things so many different ways that there really is no one way, but this latest record, we did it more like the old albums where we all brought in a whole lot of music to be gone through, and we just gravitated to the stuff that we liked the most and got all excited about. Before we knew it, we were recording 17 new songs that we loved. It's been a lot of fun... We're going to try to put as much of this on the record as we can [and] have at least a double vinyl [release]. We're already there on the double vinyl, most likely. A lot of new music."
