Known for solid dedication, honesty lyrics and profundity, To Kill A King are lining up to release their new album, ‘The Spiritual Dark Age’, on January 12th. Produced by Gethin Pearson and the band’s keyboard player Ben Jackson, ‘The Spiritual Dark Age’ is the London five-piece’s third album; highlights include  singles ‘The Good Old Days‘, title track ‘The Spiritual Dark Age‘, plus the recently revealed ‘My God Your God‘.

Guitarist Grant McNeill said, “After roughly two years in a room with a single window and a bare lightbulb making this record, we can’t wait to get out on the road. If for nothing else but to get some sunlight. That’s why we chose to tour in January”.

“‘The Spiritual Dark Age’ is the last three years of my life. Painstakingly distilled into 40 minutes of music,” said frontman Ralph Pelleymounter. “It has ballads for my single friends watching everyone else gradually pair off. There are deities and fables getting drunk in bars. It has moments of anger and disgust at characters like Peter Popoff and their parasitic feeding of the most vulnerable people. It also has folk songs about two gods who’d rather burn down the world than admit they still love each other. But hopefully, in amongst the chaos and darker tales, it has an underlying message that compassion being such a beautiful and complex thing may just save the day”.
