King’s X Signs To Golden Robot Record
King’s X fans have been clamoring for new material by the band for some time, we’ve had releases by the members of the trio in solo projects, as well as collaborations with other artists, such as KXM. But it seems that the wait may be finally over, the band has signed a new record deal, and will be releasing their first album in a decade. The band has signed with Golden Robot Records whose roster features Guns N Roses’ Dizzy Reed, Little Cesar, Puddle Of Mudd, Rose Tattoo featuring Steve Kilbey, and A New Revenge, which features former members of Scorpions, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, and Judas Priest.
Here is a sample of the press that was sent to us:
Australia’s leading international independent record label, Golden Robot Records, continues to grow at an unprecedented pace. The label is absolutely thrilled to announce that globally revered, Billboard-charting rock icons KING’S X are now part of their ever-growing international roster. KING’S X recently signed a global deal with Golden Robot Records which will see their long-awaited forthcoming new album released worldwide in 2019 via Golden Robot Records’ partners in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
“I’m really excited to release the next KING’S X album with Mark, Derek, and the crew at Golden Robot! May the groove be with us all,” says vocalist/bassist dUg Pinnick. Guitarist Ty Tabor adds, “I’m looking forward to working with Golden Robot Records!”
Drummer Jerry Gaskill adds, “It’s been a while since we’ve made a record. During that time, I’ve been thinking, when and if we make a new record, I want it to be the best we can do. I want to believe in it. I want to make it great, whatever it takes. I don’t want to just make another KING’S X record. I think and hope that we are in that place. I think and hope its time and I feel good about the team we’ll be working with at Golden Robot Records. I’m going to do my best. Let’s do this thing.”
“When we started to talk to KING’S X about signing with Golden Robot in the U.S. and we met dUg in LA a few times, I knew 100% that we would end up working with them. I’m loving the fact they are still the original members and I really believe this new album will be their best yet! It’s incredible how many people inside the industry – and I’m talking about very well-known musicians – love these guys and can’t wait for a new album. We are all very excited indeed,” says Mark Alexander-Erber, Group Founder and President.
“I am delighted to finally be able to work with one the most respected, creative rock bands of the past 30+ years. KING’S X is not only a superb rock band with an ardent fan base but is also a ‘musician musicians’ band. Golden Robot Records is determined to finally help KING’S X receive the worldwide recognition it fully deserves,” says Derek Shulman, Executive Chairman of Worldwide Expansion.
