The Flower Kings have joined forces with Kayak for a European tour.

The two prog giants will play 12 dates together in December 2019. The tour starts on December 1 in Hamburg and reaches the UK on December 8, when the bands play the Scala in London.

“We will present The Flower Kings music from the early days plus some brand new musicthat is along the lines of the early music of the band - symphonic rock,” says The Flower Kings mainman Roine Stolt. “We're happy to bring our friends in Kayak along for this proggy double bill - it will be a monumental meltdown of melodic prog.”

 The Flower Kings are currently putting the finishing touches to their new album, which is expected to be released ahead of the tour.

Dave Everley has been writing about and occasionally humming along to music since the early 90s. During that time, he has been Deputy Editor on Kerrang! and Classic Rock, Associate Editor on Q magazine and staff writer/tea boy on Raw, not necessarily in that order. He has written for Metal Hammer, Louder, Prog, the Observer, Select, Mojo, the Evening Standard and the totally legendary Ultrakill. He is still waiting for Billy Gibbons to send him a bottle of hot sauce he was promised several years ago.
