WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE LA PETITE MORT OR A CONVERSATION WITH GOD LIVE EVENTS
Flint, Michigan’s, KING 810 has announced details of a series of limited engagement live events for their new album, La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God, which will see the band offering a boundary-pushing live experience in intimate settings. Watch the arresting trailer here.
Presented in 360˚sound, the immersive events are slated for December 15 at the Agora Theatre in Cleveland, OH, and December 17 at Saint Andrew’s Hall in Detroit, MI, with more dates to be announced in the coming weeks. Fans are in store for a decidedly unique performance each night, with KING 810 engaging audiences in their intensely personal and often contentious world. The evenings are set to feature accompaniments from various performance artists, string players, and more, with each location undergoing formative transformations to stimulate the senses and evoke the dark and potent themes of La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God.
In contrast to the aforementioned live events, the show slated for December 16at Big Shots in Valparaiso, IN, promises to be a night of outright chaos, with KING 810 bringing to town their trademark performance for an up close and personal all-out war.
Produced by Josh Schroeder, Justyn Pilbrow and KING 810 and recorded in Bay City, Michigan, La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God finds KING 810 taking listeners deep into the dark heart of Flint, Michigan. La Petite Mort – translating to “The Little Death” —is an inspired, holistic body of work that marks a profound evolutionary leap for the restless and driven souls of KING 810. The title itself is a reference to the dual themes of the records: the real life violence and despair of Flint that builds the basis of frontman David Gunn’s narrative and secondly, the steady desensitization and terminal closing down of the human spirit experienced when confronted with those real life conditions. Entwined around that conceptual core is an omnipresent haze of dark sexuality and desperation that provides La Petite Mort with some of its most unnerving moments.
