KYNG’s new studio album Burn The Serum is now streaming exclusively on Blabbermouth. Burn The Serum will be released next week on April 15th via Razor & Tie. The album was produced Andrew Alekel (Foo Fighters, No Doubt, Queens of The Stone Age, Clutch) and James A. Rota (Sound City, Fireball Ministry) and was recorded at Grandmaster Recorders LTD and Sword & Shield in Hollywood, CA as well as at Studio 606 in Northridge, CA.

Burn The Serum is available for pre-order now at iTunes HERE and the various merch pre-orders are available from MerchNow.


On their second full-length album and first for Razor & Tie, the band harks back to the essence of heavy rock ‘n’ roll, forging thunderous percussion to lightning hot riffs driven by a divine vocal howl. At the same time, they keep their eyes wide open towards the future. KYNG find grandiosity in simplicity. The Los Angeles outfit may only boast three members—Eddie Veliz [vocals/guitar], Pepe Clarke [drums], and Tony Castaneda [bass/backup vocals]—but their collective roar could easily tip the Southern California Richter Scale.

Formed in 2008, KYNG broke out of the City of Angels in 2011 with the group’s independent debut Trampled Sun. The album landed shining critical acclaim for its “California Heavy” sound merging the metallic meanderings of Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age with the timeless scope of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. They hit the road with everybody from The Sword and Clutch to Trivium and Megadeth—even being picked to play at Metallica’s first-ever Orion Music + More festival. Loudwire raved, “a hard hitting fusion of rocking goodness,” and Ultimate-Guitar added, “if they keep churning out records as good as Trampled Sun, they will be mentioned right up there with Mastodon and the like.”

The Southern California rock trio is currently on the road with Lacuna Coil and supporting acts Eve to Adam and Nothing More (tour dates below). After that tour, KYNG will once again hit the road and will be joined by co-headliner Kill Devil Hill and supporting act Crobot.
