'Love Is Not Control’ is the first track to be released from To Kill A King’s forthcoming, self-titled album due out on March 2nd 2015 through Xtra Mile Recordings. The follow up to their 2013 debut Cannibals With Cutlery, To Kill A King was produced by long-term collaborator Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag n Bone Man) and the band’s Ben Jackson at both the Distillery in the West Country and a studio at the top of the hill in Wiltshire, as well as stints at Crew’s basement studio in Battersea and late night sessions at Pelleymounter’s flat.
To Kill A King is the sound of a band hitting the peak of their powers. It’s the sort of record that could only be made now, an album where stadium-sized choruses, artful dynamism and sonic experimentalism slide seamlessly together. The five-piece are on the cusp of a big breakthrough and they have made a record fit to kick the door down. It will place the quintet firmly in the lineage of British guitar bands, such as Foals, The Maccabees, and Bombay Bicycle Club, who make imaginative, exciting indie-rock. Like those groups, To Kill A King make music with no straitjacket on, a heady blend of youthful exuberance and spirited independence leading the way.
