King’s X have signed a deal with Golden Robot Records for their new studio album.
The trio of vocalist and bassist Dug Pinnick, drummer Jerry Gaskill and guitarist Ty Tabor haven’t released a studio album since 2008’s XV. But with a new deal in the bag, they’re moving forward and plan on releasing their 13th record in 2019.
Gaskill says: “It's been a while since we've made a record. During that time, I've been thinking, 'When and if we make a new record, I want it to be the best we can do.'
“I want to believe in it. I want to make it great… whatever it takes. I don't want to just make another King’s X record. I think and hope that we are in that place. I think and hope it’s time and I feel good about the team we'll be working with at Golden Robot Records. I'm going do my best. Let's do this thing!”
Pinnick adds: “I’m really excited to release the next King’s X album with Mark, Derek and the crew at Golden Robot! May the groove be with us all.”
Golden Robot Records’ founder and president Mark Alexander-Erber says he’s delighted to be working with the trio and that everyone involved is excited about what the future holds.
He says: “When we started to talk to King’s X about signing with Golden Robot and we met Dug in Los Angeles a few times, I knew 100% that we would end up working with them.
“I’m loving the fact they are still the original members and I really believe this new album will be there best yet! It's incredible how many people inside the industry love these guys and can't wait for a new album. We are all very excited indeed.”
Further album details will be revealed in due course. Watch this space.
