Southern California rock trio KYNG will release its new studio album, "Burn The Serum", on April 15 via Razor & Tie. The CD was produced by Andrew Alekel (FOO FIGHTERS, NO DOUBT, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, CLUTCH) and James A. Rota and was recorded at Grandmaster Recorders Ltd. and Sword & Shield in Hollywood, California as well as at Studio 606 in Northridge, California.

On its second full-length album and first for Razor & Tie, KYNG harks back to the essence of heavy rock 'n' roll, forging thunderous percussion to lightning hot riffs driven by a divine vocal howl. At the same time, they keep their eyes wide open towards the future. KYNG find grandiosity in simplicity. The Los Angeles outfit may only boast three members — Eddie Veliz (vocals/guitar), Pepe Clarke (drums) and Tony Castaneda (bass/backup vocals) — but their collective roar could easily tip the Southern California Richter scale.
Formed in 2008, KYNG broke out of the City of Angels in 2011 with the group's independent debut, "Trampled Sun". The album landed shining critical acclaim for its "California heavy" sound, merging the metallic meanderings of SOUNDGARDEN and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE with the timeless scope of BLACK SABBATH and LED ZEPPELIN. They hit the road with everybody from THE SWORD and CLUTCH to TRIVIUM and MEGADETH — even being picked to play at METALLICA's first-ever Orion Music + More festival.
KYNG wrapped up 2013 with the Hellpop tour with IN THIS MOMENT, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE and ALL HAIL THE YETI and will hit the road in 2014 to support of "Burn The Serum".
