“The buildups sound like they’re ready to take on the world in Joshua Tree-era U2 fashion, just in time for when a glistening guitar line comes in and drives the song skyward.”- Billboard

About Alvarez Kings:

Alvarez Kings story starts from their humble roots in South Yorkshire. Rising to popularity quickly the band would go on to sell out hometown shows, selling out of their first two releases and culminating in their latest offering No Resolve being named Single of The Year by BBC Radio Sheffield as well as coveting local awards including Best Band and Best EP.

With a foot hold in their native county, ambitions were set further afield in the UK which resulted in festival slots at Isle of Wight and O2 Wireless and sold out shows in many of London’s famous venues including KOKO and The 100 Club to name a few.

Naturally, Alvarez Kings spread their music across the shores with three successful tours of Europe, a three week tour of Canada and industry showcases at SXSW and CMJ which presented the band the opportunity to play a mammoth 40 date tour in the US – the infamous Vans Warped Tour – taking in 26 States and garnering them rave nationwide press reviews and a firm, dedicated fanbase.

Alvarez Kings became reality TV stars when Fuse TV filmed the band’s adventures on Vans Warped Tour for Season 2 of the hit TV show Warped Roadies.

Presently Alvarez Kings, having become fed up with the same generic indie guitar music of their peers and went into the studio to record what will become their next release entitled Fear To Feel; a blend of soaring melody, thought provoking lyrics, coupled with epic dynamic ranges and intricate musicality The new EP takes on forever altering soundscapes ranging from electronica and deep house production through indie hooks and melody, flirting with complex time signatures and a symphonic cacophony of instrumentation and harmony, whilst maintaining its popular vigour at its core.
