King King have announced that they’ll release their first-ever live album next month.

King King Live was recorded at Glasgow’s O2 ABC on May 14 this year and comes on 2CD, while a DVD recorded at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on April 13, will also be bundled with the package.

Lead singer Alan Nimmo says: “We are excited about King King Live because it’s the first time we’ve ever released a live album. It’s a great testament to how our audiences drive us on to perform to the best of our abilities.

“The audience reaction to the live performances is amazing. This release couldn’t have been possible without them.”

King King Live will be released on October 21 via Manhaton Records and is now available for pre-order from Amazon.

In addition, King King have issued a video of their Waking Up, which features on the bonus DVD. Watch it below.

King King will head out on a 12-date UK tour with Broken Witt Rebels in November in support of 2015 album Reaching For The Light.
