The British band ‘The Kill a King’ who are near and dear to my heart has an exciting new gig you need to hear about. And yes it is of the charitable kind.
The band which features members, Ralph Pellymounter, James Ball, Josh Taffel, Grant McNeil, & Ben Jackson are headlining their first fundraising gig in support of a addiction and mental health charity named “Music Support”. The concert (on May 28th) will be held at Omera in London, UK & hosted by Pearse Grady at Baker Boy Music and Amy Gordon of Diamond Jacks Management.
“This our first ever fundraising show and we are incredibly proud and excited that a band with the calibre of To Kill A King are joining us. It goes to show that we are really receiving support from all areas of the industry across the board, and events like this enable us to continue providing the crucial services to the industry that we saw such a need for.”
– Matt Thomas, Music Support founding trustee
The band ‘To Kill A King’ released their latest album, “The Spiritual Dark Age” this past January to a set of devoted fans and led by a string of single releases which include the title track. The record is a mix of soft acoustic guitar tracks to more upbeat jazzy rock numbers. The band followed up this album release with a opening tour slot with the band ‘Bastille’ on the “Reorchestrated” tour.
Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the ‘Music Support’ charity to help achieve it’s mission of insuring that no one in the UK music industry who suffers with addiction and mental health issues alone.
“Music Support do incredibly important work in an industry that can be exploitative of its artists and when we were asked to get involved, we jumped at the chance. Omeara is one of our favourite small venues and we’re planning on making it a really special night,”
– ‘To Kill a King’ guitarist, Grant McNeill.
To Kill a King’ has invited Singer-Songwriter Charlie Barnes, who has also toured with Bastille as both an opening act and most notably as a touring member, to perform with them. Charlie’s beautiful and atmospheric second album “Oceanography” was released back in March with the second single “Bruising” released on May 4th. The band have also invited Monty Taft to open the show. The 18 year old Singer-Songwriter from Jersey whose unique sound is genre blending allowing him to gain critical acclaim and music industry interest since releasing his first single “These Walls” in 2015. At 18 he has already performed at over 400 live shows. Monty Taft’s latest single, “Delay” is out now.
“It’s such an honour to have been asked to be part of this night for Music Support. Being involved in music can be a pretty weird job; of course it has its dizzying highs, but those can’t exist without some, in my experience, fairly daunting lows. It can be so easy to feel like you’re the only person in the world experiencing tough times in this industry, but organisations like Music Support are doing wonderful work to help us all feel a little bit less like we’re on our own. I’m also, like, totally pumped to get to see my new best buds To Kill A King again, and make a new friend in the Marvellous Monty Taft”
– Charlie Barnes
