KINGDOM Parts Ways With Bassist, Seeks Replacement

Vocalist Davin of the South Philadelphia vegan straight-edge natives KINGDOM was interviewed on August 2, 2009 in Tallinn, Estonia by a an Estonian hardcore web site. The chat can be viewed below.

In other news, bassist Pierce has left KINGDOM. Davin writes in an online posting, "We're still all great friends. Message boards will be sorry to hear that there was no epic battle or dramatic reason for him to leave, just the usual: needing money, wanting time with his family, etc.

"Pierce has been with KINGDOM in one way or another since our very first show in 2006 (he was one the first to buy our demo!), then he did merch for us on a two-month long U.S. tour in 2007, then he joined the band in 2008, we wrote and recorded a record together, and traveled around the world. He's one of my best friends, my little big brother, a multi-talented dude who can rap, breakdance, rollerblade, and shred the bass, and he will never not be moshing to MADBALL.

"KINGDOM will still go on without him, even though he's going to be awwfully hard to replace. Ben (our original drummer) has still not been replaced (we've been touring with fill-ins since he left), so we're still looking for a drummer, and now we're also looking for a bassist.

"If you're interested, vegan, straight edge, and able to get to Philly for practice, and able to tour a lot starting next year — get in touch!"

KINGDOM's latest album, "The Rage That Guides", was released in March through Eulogy Recordings. The CD was recorded by Drew Faulk in December 2008.
