Earlier this week, King 810’s video for their 2014 track Killem All was taken down by YouTube for violating their community guidelines.

The streaming giant reported they took the decision due to it containing “hate speech” – something the band’s frontman David Gunn strongly denied, calling the video and music “artistic expression” and “social commentary.”

Now, YouTube have reversed their decision and reinstated the video – and Gunn has responded.

He says: “The authoritarians at YouTube have put our Killem All video back up with an age restriction.

“We all know the science doesn’t support this as an effective solution and you have to wonder if this would’ve went another way had we not the influence or means we do. Either way, this is all we can ask for. Thanks y’all.”

In December, King 810 released an EP titled Queen and will tour across the UK throughout February. Find details below.
