KING'S X Begins Recording First Studio Album In Over A Decade

KING'S X has entered Blacksound Studio in Pasadena, California to begin recording its new album — the band's first in over a decade — due later this year via Australia's independent record label Golden Robot Records. Helming the disc is renowned producer Michael Parnin, recognized for his work with a varied range of artists, from RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and Missy Elliott, to Andrew Lloyd Webber and Barbara Streisand.

Commenting on how it feels to be returning to the studio after 10 years, frontman Doug Pinnick says: "Good question! I haven't thought about it much. Been super busy. But got a ton of tunes to submit. I never know what to expect. I'm always surprised when it's done and can see it as a whole picture. And we're making a record after how long?! I've been waiting for this to happen for a very long time, and I'm totally looking forward to it."

Drummer Jerry Gaskill adds: "It's been a while since we've made a record together. I go back and forth between excitement and fear. But when it gets right down to it, I think excitement wins. I look forward to sharing all of our ideas together and seeing what comes of it all. If nothing else, it will be the next KING'S X record."

Guitarist Ty Tabor says: "I'm excited to see where we are at these days. We're all bringing ideas in."

Michael Parnin says about recording the new album with KING'S X: "A great story in the making... As a huge fan of the band from the beginning, I am unbelievably excited to work on the next long-awaited chapter. Some of my favorite and most artistically rewarding projects have been working with Doug over the past 10 years, namely 'Strum Sum Up' and the fun Hendrix tribute album we did together... Likewise, I'm honored and looking forward to working with Jerry and Ty who are each masters of their craft."

Derek Shulman, executive chairman of worldwide expansion for Golden Robot Records, adds: "I am delighted to finally be able to work with one of the most respected, creative rock bands of the past 30-plus years. KING'S X is not only a superb rock band with an ardent fan base, but are also a 'musician musicians' band. Golden Robot Records is determined to finally help KING'S X receive the worldwide recognition it fully deserves."
