‘The Good Old Days’ is the brilliant new single from To Kill A King, available to stream now LINK and impacting on 23rd June. ‘The Good Old Days’ is the London five-piece’s second taster of their third album following recent single ‘The Problem Of Evil’ – watch the the video starring ‘Poldark’ and ‘Larkrise to Candleford’ actress Ruby Bentall on Vevo. The album, the follow-up to To Kill A King’s 2015’s acclaimed self-titled second album, will be released in the autumn.
To Kill A King released a special 7” single for last weekend’s Record Store Day. Comprising a live acoustic version of ‘The Problem Of Evil’, plus a haunting cover of The National’s ‘I Need My Girl’, the single was limited to 300 copies and sold-out on Saturday.
To Kill A King are to play three consecutive London gigs at different venues across the capital on May 11th, 12th & 13th. Renowned for their intense live performances, To Kill A King will play a different set each evening. The band’s last UK headline tour in March 2015 culminated in a headline show at Shepherds Bush Empire, and later that year they were picked by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens to headline The Lake stage at Latitude.
“For the last year we’ve been locked in small windowless rooms with nothing but each other for company,” says To Kill A King’s Ben Jackson. “So as you can imagine we are super excited about these May shows. It’s been too long since we played in London, the venues are all nice intimate rooms with great sound and playing three dates means that we can do three different setlists. We’ll be unleashing our new tunes as well as playing the old favourites and we can’t fucking wait.”

After releasing two acclaimed albums, 2013’s ‘Cannibals With Cutlery’ and 2015’s self-titled follow-up ‘To Kill A King’, and touring incessantly since 2010, To Kill a King took a year off the road to concentrate on writing their third album. When not occupied with this, they’ve been working with other acts, singer Ralph Pelleymounter writing with the likes of Rag’n’ Bone Man and Zibra, keyboardist Ben producing acts like Childcare and Little White Things.
