King Mob Release Debut Album “Force 9″ plus Live Concert!
Album “Force 9” Release date: 31st October 2011
UK Date – London, 17th November 2011
KING MOB is a brand new English beat combo comprising guitar legend Chris Spedding (Roxy Music, Elton John, John Cale, Paul McCartney), Glen Matlock – bass (Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, Faces), Martin Chambers – drums (Pretenders), Stephen W Parsons aka Snips – vocals (film composer and vocalist of cult 70’s band Sharks) and introducing hot new guitar talent Sixteen.
The Mob are heavily influenced by two great band leader composers, Duke Ellington and Jimmy Page.
Their debut album FORCE 9 produced by SWP will be released on 31 October 2011 on 11 track CD and 7 track 180g Vinyl LP with gatefold sleeve, plus bonus 3 track CD included.
The album shows a band at the height of their powers. From the sharp riffing of the first single “Selene Selene” to the truly infectious “VA VAH VOOM”, from the gentle groove of “Chapel Of Love” to the blast of album opener “Lover Of High Renown”, this is an album that draws on the collective experience of all members to create something completely unique. The band draw on the Spirit of ’69 – but not in a retrospective way – they are bringing the raw power and spirit of that golden age of music into a contemporary setting – from the songwriting, to the playing, to the sound of the records, to the live show, to the spirit of the act. The album was recorded in four days…
The group has signed an exclusive recording deal with SPV/Steamhammer for the World excluding North America and has shot two videos. The first “Selene Selene” will be released as a download audio and visual single mid September and the second “VA VAH VOOM” is scheduled for audio and visual download release November/December.
Live dates are currently being set up to promote the album in European territories late 2011 and early 2012 with shows in Japan, Australia and South America following. Confirmed so far is the following UK date
