King810 have unleashed a brand new track, “Hellhounds”.

Frontman and King visionary, David Gunn tells us: ““Hellhounds” tells people what’s happening in my head, which is a confusing thing even for myself. Around the time of the conception and making of (current album) Suicide King, I had been diagnosed with an identity disorder (DID) and “Hellhounds” happened to be a place I ended up at one day. As with every thought in my head, it is death obsessed. The title borrows from the old Robert Johnson song, “Hellhound on my Trail.” Overall, it reminds the listener – who may have forgotten – that I’m in so much pain, there is absolutely no reason to revere me in any way for anything.”

The Flint-based band’s current album, Suicide King, is still available in various format as the first instalment of frontman, David Gunn’s eye-opening memoir, Summertime In Murdertown: How I Survived Where The Best Die. In the book, Gunn, a natural storyteller, pulls back the curtain on his hometown of Flint, painting a vivid picture like only those born and raised there can. He offers keen insight into a world that does not allow you to stop working through the struggle, urging the reader to forget back-up plans. Instead, cross the bridge and burn it behind you. Give yourself no choice. Define the things you want and run towards them.

King810 are set to spend Spring on the road in the US with industrial squad, Combichrist with UK dates in the pipeline for late 2020.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
