Flint, Michigan's KING 810 Signs With ROADRUNNER RECORDS

Flint, Michigan's KING 810 has inked a deal with Roadrunner Records. The band's "Proem" EP is currently streaming in its entirety on RoadrunnerRecords.com and you can stream and download the track "Fat Around The Heart" now at KING810.com.

"Proem" will be made available on iTunes on May 13. This collection preludes the band's full-length debut slated for later this summer.

Flint, the forgotten city, is where KING 810 calls home and it's the dystopian dwelling that sets the backdrop for the "Proem". With no mayor to preside over the bereft community and a minuscule police force, Flint teaches its young to fend for themselves.

"Proem" is an embodiment of KING 810's life within this pressure cooker, a glimpse into the personal account of this disappearing metropolis where tree branches live longer than the children do. The EP traces the band's Midwest survival, stirred by frontman David Gunn's examination of his own existence and the dying kingdom around him.
