Many doomsayers are writing rock’s obituary in 2015. But if you think rock is
dead, just check out Palace Of The King.

Steeped in bluesy swagger and riff-heavy psychedelia, this is rock and roll
that leaves a trail of denim-clad soldiers and converted non-believers in
its wake.

Formed in late 2012, Palace Of The King – nameless at that point – quickly
recorded a 3 track demo and developed the vision of a 6-piece blues-infused
rock and roll band. Far from a grave-robbing retro trip, Palace Of The King
has just as much in common with Rival Sons, Graveyard & Jack White as they
do Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath & Deep Purple. Remember when bands released
an album a year and toured ’til the wheels fell off the tour van?

Having spent their formative years storming stages in every corner of
Australia – alongside bands as varied as Airbourne and The Tea Party –
and priming themselves for an international assault, the time has come
for Palace Of The King to take their brand of rock n’ roll abroad.
Armed with 2 EPs, a full-length vinyl LP and now a debut album proper,
this is a band that has earned their stripes and wear them with pride.

“Palace Of The King is literally like a huge ground shaking Palace of
RIFFS, SOUL and Rock’n’Roll.” comments Joel O’Keeffe, lead singer and
guitarist of Airbourne. “With more hooks and lines than a hard working
Bering Sea fishing fleet they are guaranteed to tangle you up, reel you
in and blow you away with their unique six-stringing, soul singing,
sexy stomping Rock’n’Roll! They are the real fuckin’ deal and I can’t
wait to see them setting fire to Europe soon! Crank up POTK!”

In 2015, it’s time for the White Bird to take flight. From three
minute funk-infused rockers through to seven minute Sabbath-esque
crushers, Palace Of The King has seized the opportunity to explore
every intricate corner of their influences and craft a debut album
that captures a band at a point where ‘scratching the surface’ isn’t
nearly enough. Standby for an album that tears apart the 100-year
history of the blues, adds a distinctly modern edge and smothers a
‘no holds barred’ attitude across 44 minutes worth of riff-a-minute,
hook-laden rock and roll.

The ‘freight train’ metaphor may be overused and stale. But you’d be
hard-pressed to find one that is better-suited to a band that has
played over 200 shows and released a mountain of music at such a
prolific rate, all within two years of striking their first chord
as a band.

Turn it on, turn it up and strap yourself in for the ride. White
Bird/Burn The Sky is about to launch stratospheric.
