Some Mentions From Around The Internet...

Greetings!  Here's a brief recap of some press All These Things has been garnering around thee ole Internets.

Most notably, our first review of All These Things was published on the Here Comes The Flood blog.  Here's an excerpt of what Hans Werksman had to say...

The band doesn't use many words, but make sure that each one of them counts. With shifting time signatures and vocals on the brink of straying off pitch All These Things is a required taste, but like any good music it puts up both a challenge and invitation to dig deeper into the subject matter.

The song And The Rain Came Down was featured on the Ju Ju June episode of the Is This Thing On? Podcast.  Nick Tann, the host, had some VERY nice things to say about the song and the band in general.  Thanks mate!

If that wasn't enough, Mr. Tann was heard to say "...absolutely bloody gorgeous..." in reference to Breaking Through (featured on the Summer Special episode).

The excellent Down The Line blog published a positive review of All These Things, only bemoaning the brevity of the EP.  Believe me, I wish there was more too!

I can hear everything from early U2 to emo in each song, all blended cleverly into a coherent whole. The only problem with this is the length: only three songs leaves you wanting more.

And finally, big thanks to Pretty in Noise FM and Abode and Teardrops for sharing a King Never track with their listeners.

Uncertainty, Podcasters and Pumpkins

If you would have asked me in January where I would be living in May, I would have replied, "Much closer to my bandmates." Well, things haven't quite worked out and I'm still two and a half hours away. My big plans for King Never in 2011 have been delayed, but I'm still hopeful!

I've been using this period of uncertainty to refine my guitar rig and work on new material. So far, I've finished one new song and am close to finishing a second - I just need to finish those pesky lyrics. I'm pleased with the direction of the new material and look forward to fleshing out the arrangements with the band.

In other news, did you know you can download any (or all) of King Never's albums for "name your price"? It's true. Pay nothing or pay something. Go on over to music.kingnever.com to start downloading.

Oh. I would be remiss not to thank the wonderful Nick Tann for playing King Never on episode 80 of his excellent Is This Thing On? Podcast. Give it a listen. Nick plays some great indie music and is a very entertaining host.

Interestingly, Nick compares our song Sorrow to the Smashing Pumpkins. He is the second podcaster to make this reference, so there must be something to it! Ironically, I've never been a fan of the Pumpkins and have been known to use Billy Corgan as an example of a singer with poor vocal quality. You know what they say about kharma!

Thanks for your continued support and interest in King Never!
