Razor & Tie has added rock trio Kyng to its roster.

(New York, NY) – Razor & Tie announces the addition of the Southern California, rock trio KYNG to its worldwide label and publishing rosters. The band is currently well into the writing and recording of their forthcoming new studio album with a single expected later this year. KYNG will be hitting the road in late August with Sevendust, 10 Years, Monster Truck and American Fangs and will join the Hellpop Tour with In This Moment, Motionless In White and All Hail The Yeti beginning October 24th (tour dates below).

KYNG joins Razor & Tie at an exciting time in the label’s history as R&T continues to nurture and expand its rock roster that currently includes both established rock radio acts like All That Remains and P.O.D., alongside such lifestyle acts as Attila, For Today, Chiodos, Hatebreed, The Sword, Norma Jean, Chelsea Grin, Sworn In, HIM, Such Gold, Deaf Havana and many more.

KYNG comments, “We are very excited to announce that we have signed a record deal with the illustrious Razor & Tie. We are over the moon about being on such a great label and being a part of an incredible roster of bands, including our brothers THE SWORD! We will have new music out for you soon. The world will know…”

Formed in 2008 in Southern California, KYNG’s sound features a unique and universally appealing combination of heavy and captivating concepts, channeling influences from Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin to the Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age. KYNG’s versatile approach of a sweet devastation bleeds from an artistic drive toward a momentum described as “California Heavy.”

The band’s well received first album, Trampled Sun, was released independently in 2011 with Loudwire calling it, “a hard hitting fusion of rocking goodness,” and Ultimate-Guitar stating, “if they keep churning out records as good as Trampled Sun, they will be mentioned right up there with Mastodon and the like.”

The band has toured with The Sword, Black Stone Cherry, In Flames, Trivium, Clutch, Megadeth as well as performing at Metallica’s 2012 Orion Fest.

KYNG is singer/songwriter Eddie Veliz bassist, Tony Castaneda and drummer Pepe Clarke Magana.

KYNG are managed by Bill McGathy and John Bambino at IndieGoot and booked by Anthony Paolercio at The Agency Group.
