The Skinny: Today, Brooklyn stoner rock/doom collective, Kings Destroy, are pleased to unveil, “W2,” the first single from their forthcoming new, self-titled full-length.
Elaborates guitarist Chris Skowronski: “‘W2’ is a song about how the institutions and interests that control our country — the government, corporations, the media — have used fear, misdirection, and outright lies to keep us in a perpetual state of fear. In turn, this fear allows them to exploit us and keep us from doing anything to change the status quo. In the song, a man approaches an oracle and asks to be told about a time when man was more honest, noble, and stood for something real. The oracle doesn’t answer the searcher’s question, but rather ‘turns his gaze and stares into the void,’ suggesting that there is no hope to change the current trajectory.”
Kings Destroy will be released next month via War Crime Recordings. The follow-up to last year’s critically-adored A Time Of Hunting full-length was produced and mixed by Sanford Parker (Twilight, Voivod, Eyehategod, Yob etc.) at Studio G in Brooklyn, New York, mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room in Chicago, Illinois and delivers seven, lead-footed doom rock hymns.
