Kings X is back in the headlines for the first time in a while.
The band announced Thursday, it has signed a new record deal with InsideOut Music. The deal will see the band release its new album this fall. The as yet untitled album will be the band’s 13th record.
The band shared its thoughts on the new developments, beginning with bassist/vocalist dUg Pinnick.
“I feel like it’s been forever since we put out a new album, and I’m ready for the world to hear our latest offering, hopefully there’s a little bit of everything that you love about Kings X, three sides of one is the best way to describe it,” Pinnick said. “The groove is with us!”
Drummer Jerry Gaskill was enthusiastic not only about the new album, but the band’s new record deal, too.
“It’s really gonna happen!,” Gaskill said. “The new record is coming out soon. I’m happy to be working with the team at InsideOut/Sony Music. I’m happy with the record. I’m happy everybody gets to hear it. It’s a happy day. Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. Hope you enjoy it!!!”
Gutiarist Ty Tabor, who released his latest solo album, Shades in March through Rat Pak Records, also commented on the band’s new record deal.
“I have a long standing relationship with InsideOut and am so pleased that InsideOut/Sony is releasing the new King’s X album,” said Tabor.
InsideOut Music head Thomas Waber echoed Tabor’s statement.
“We have known the guys since forever and have been fans even before then,” he said. “We are really looking forward to adding another album to their impressive legacy. Working on a King’s X album is always a highlight and an honour!”
