To Kill A King have been crafting melodic folk that’s packed full of love, loss and heartbreak since their debut Cannibals With Cutlery, but it was 2015’s self-titled LP that really struck a chord with fans and critics alike.

Receiving support from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and publications like Shortlist and The Guardian, it was an album that led to comparisons with bands like The Maccabees and The National, and took them to a huge headline date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

The band’s new single ‘Spiritual Dark Age’ also comes with announcement of a headline tour for January 2018, which will called at Mama Roux’s Birmingham on Sat 20th. Described by singer Ralph Pelleymounter as “a bit of comfort for the long dark night of the soul,” ‘Spiritual Dark Age’ is To Kill A King at their irrepressible best. Marrying memorable, thought-provoking lyrics with dynamic production and outrageously catchy hooks, ‘Spiritual Dark Age’ grabs from the off and never lets up. ‘Spiritual Dark Age’ and recent single ‘‘The Good Old Days’ will feature on the To Kill A King’s third album due early 2018.

Plus special guests CHILDCARE

Childcare finished 2016 playing their biggest shows to date – in front of thousands as part of Bastille’s nationwide arena tour. This came hot on the heels of the band releasing killer single ‘Film Club’ to comprehensive acclaim. ‘Film Club’ was the first taster of a new EP (to be released on Lost in the Manor Records) that also features the stellar ‘Kiss?’ and represents an emphatic statement sure to cement the adoration of all those newly turned on to the London quartet courtesy of that tour.

Having honed their vivid and visceral live show on stages including Reading & Leeds Festivals and now some of the land’s major concert venues, the band released three singles – ‘Omega Grey’, ‘Film Club’ and ‘Kiss?’ – earning extensive national radio play and enthusiastic coverage from key online tastemakers.
