For over three decades, dUg, Ty, and Jerry, better known as King’s X, have been producing their very own particular blend of rock music which, much to their credit, has constantly remained difficult to pigeonhole, combining as it does progressive metal, funk and soul with Beatlesque vocal harmonies. It was 1979 when the trio got together in Missouri but it wasn’t until 1988, after previously playing under the names of The Edge and Sneak Preview, that the band finally released its debut album, Out Of The Silent Planet. The band’s commercial breakthrough came two years and two albums later when the single, It’s Love, off their third album Faith, Hope and Love received major airplay on MTV. Since then they have continued to build up a loyal following of fans, have recorded a total of twelve studio albums and are currently finalizing their thirteenth.
The US rock trio, whose latest album is currently being finalized at the Bernie Grundman Mastering facility in California, is eager to get back on the road after their 2019 touring plans had to be canceled and the covid-19 pandemic plunged the entire live music scene into a forced hiatus throughout 2020 and the best part of 2021. With their thirteenth studio album promising to be a powerful blend of sounds ranging from “’Penny Lane’ to the heaviest MESHUGGAH’”, according to frontman, Doug Pinnick, RoSFest organizers felt they couldn’t let their patrons miss out on what promises to be a spectacular show.
