Having recently played three consecutive London headline dates (at The Borderline, Oslo, and Omeara), To Kill A King are to return to their DIY roots with ‘Living Room Tour’, which will take in the UK and Europe throughout September and October 2017.
“There’s always been this other side to the band,” says TKAK’s frontman Ralph Pellymounter. “Though we’ve moved into a loud electric sound in this upcoming album, we started playing acoustic in people’s houses, so it’s nice to strip the songs back and see how they sound. If fans are generous enough to open up their homes to people, then we will fill them with our music.”
To apply for To Kill A King to come and play in their home, fans should email firstname.lastname@example.org with contact details, location and what type of event they have planned, and what the performance space would be like. The band also needs to know whether you’d be up for opening it up to other local fans, along with some dates that you’d be free in September or October.
