THE UGLY KINGS ARE BACK WITH THEIR SOPHOMORE EFFORT
The Australian band The Ugly Kings is back with Strange, Strange Times. This is their second full-length studio album. Given the actual times, the title is pretty fitting.
One of the reasons why I make a big effort to post new videos on Patreon is because it helps turn my Patrons on to new music. But, it also helps me come across bands that I previously did not know. The Ugly Kings fit the new to me category perfectly.
The band checks off a lot of boxes, you could say that they pull from influences like Queens Of The Stone Age, Johnny Cash, and Danzig among others. They offer a mix between blues, desert sessions fuzzed-out stoner rock, 90s alternative, and straight-up hard rock.
The album is very solid from beginning to end. With charismatic vocals, driving rhythms, and the right balance between clean and distortion where needed.
If you’re part of that “no good music has come out after ’89” crowd. Or you’re looking for something different to listen to Strange, Strange Times by The Ugly Kings might be the album for you.
Several of their songs have already made the Patron curated playlist.
Here are The Ugly Kings with the title track off of their latest album Strange, Strange Times.
