In the last six months, the buzz around self-released, Birmingham blues rock band Broken Witt Rebels has reached a deafening roar. So much so that the band have rushed out their latest single, ‘Guns’, to capitalize on fan-driven interest. The official video for ‘Guns’ has generated almost 500,000 YouTube hits.
“We’re determined to take King King to new heights,” says the band’s lead singer and guitarist Alan Nimmo. “We enjoy winning over new fans who’ve discovered us for the very first time. We’re also excited to have Broken Witt Rebels supporting us on our November tour, as they are a fine example of how a young rock group can connect to their rock and blues influences and still make it sound fresh and exciting.”
To coincide with the November tour, King King are pleased to announce the release of a new live album that will be released on CD and digital download in October. The album will include the full audio from a storming live concert in Glasgow, plus exclusive DVD filmed at the Holmfirth Picturedrome.
