“Over the past year I have been mentally unstable. My intentions have not been as focused as they are typically. This wasn’t obvious until I reviewed the fifty songs me and Josh wrote over the recent couple years. Only then did I realize there wasn’t the concept of a whole record here. Instead the songs played as smaller groups of frenzied schizophrenic fits. So it is likely we will come with several EPs over the year because of this. I don’t think of it as any less of a release it just feels like the best way to deliver the songs,” says David Gunn about Follow My Tears.

Gunn adds, “This video is about digital technocracy. The demi gods that are the global hegemonies on the earth today and the religion it has grown into. The big tech hand that turns the dial influencing us to love the virtuous tribes we belong to and to hate the out-group of the “other”. Most of all it about how much we hate ourselves…”
King 810 is an American metal band from Flint, Michigan formed in 2007. Hailing from a place infamous for its crime and poverty statistics, King 810 specialize in effusive slabs of nu-metal-infused modern hard rock with elements of experimental hip-hop and dark jazz. The band’s first release was their independent EP titled Midwest Monsters in 2012, which earned them a signing with Roadrunner Records; they released their second EP titled Proem in 2014, and their Billboard-charting debut studio album Memoirs of a Murderer that same year. The following year the band would be the first metal group to collaborate with DJ Drama on a project entitled Midwest Monsters 2. The EP blended metal and rap in classic nu metal fashion and featured several hip hop artists including Grammy award winning Freddie Gibbs. In 2016 the group released their sophomore LP entitled La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God followed by an acoustic project entitled Queen. In 2018 the group would go independent for the release of their most experimental album Suicide King only to return to form with 2020’s apocalyptic AK Concerto No. 47, 11th Movement in G Major.
