King's X the American rock band that combines progressive metal, funk and soul with vocal arrangements influenced by gospel, blues, and British Invasion rock groups. King's X has something for everyone! The band was ranked #83 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists Of Hard Rock and have released over a dozen albums with radio hits like "Its Love," "Black Flag" and "Dog Man." Lifelong friends communicate in a language of their own peppered with shared memories, inside jokes, and dreams fulfilled. King’s X partake in a similar musical conversation informed by over four decades together as a band. The trio— Dug Pinnick [bass, vocals], Jerry Gaskill [drums, vocals], and Ty Tabor [guitar, vocals]—lock into an unspoken groove where each element shapes a signature sound singular to these three individual souls alone. No other band in history has pushed hard rock, alternative, metal, progressive, and soul into a galaxy quite like the one King’s X occupy. Along the way, they architected a catalog of seminal releases. KERRANG! famously scored their 1988 full-length debut, ‘Out of the Silent Planet,’ with a rare “5-out-of-5-stars.” On its heels, the landmark ‘Gretchen Goes To Nebraska’ continues to inspire think pieces with Ultimate Classic Rock going as far to proclaim, “no one else has crafted anything remotely like it.” They notably appeared on the soundtrack to ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey,’ and Guitar World christened the self-titled ‘King’s X’ one of “The 30 Greatest Rock Guitar Albums of 1992” (a year notably highlighted by Pantera’s ‘Vulgar Display of Power,’ Alice In Chains’ ‘Dirt,’ Megadeth’s ‘Countdown To Extinction,’ Dream Theater’s ‘Images and Words,’ and many more). Following Dogman, the group graced the stage of Woodstock 1994 and toured with everyone from Pearl Jam and AC/DC to Mötley Crüe and Iron Maiden. They also attracted one of the most diehard fanbases in music with ‘Ear Candy’ [1996], ‘Tape Head’ [1998], ‘Please Come Home... Mr. Bulbous’ [2000], ‘Manic Moonlight’ [2001], ‘Black Like Sunday’ [2003], ‘Ogre Tones’ [2005], and ‘XV’ [2008]. In 2019, author Greg Prato’s book “King’s X: The Oral History” featured testimonials from the likes of Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins, Andy Summers of The Police, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, Rex Brown of Pantera, and more. Meanwhile, Rolling Stone crowned them “Internationally renowned cult heroes,” Devin Townsend included Gretchen Goes To Nebraska on “The 5 Albums That Made Me,” and VH1 touted them among “The 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.”
