KING LEG’S DEBUT ALBUM MEET KING LEG TO BE RELEASED ON OCTOBER 6 VIA SIRE RECORDS
Three New Videos Available Now Through All Digital Retailers
Additional Live Dates Confirmed
July 24, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – Sire Records is pleased to present the debut album from Los Angeles-based Rock ‘n’ Roll force of nature King Leg. Meet King Leg is set for release on October 6. Sire Records recently released his debut single and video “Great Outdoors,” which you can listen to here and watch the official video for here. Three more video clips are now available and will offer an audio/visual taste of things to come from Meet King Leg: “Your Picture,”“Cloud City”,” and “Comfy Chair/(“A Dream That Never Ends.”) King Leg invites you to view and share. These songs are now available through all Digital music Retailers.
Upon signing King Leg, Chairman of Sire Records, Seymour Stein, had the following to say: “King Leg makes American Music. It is Rock ‘n’ Roll, with a nod to R&B and Country – which as we know, helped to usher in Rock ‘n’ Roll back in the 1950s. The lightning rod for Rock ‘n’ Roll was when Elvis Presley signed to RCA in 1956 and put out “Heartbreak Hotel.” When I heard King Leg’s music, I was totally blown away – not just by the immediacy of the songs, but also the extraordinary voice – reminiscent of the great Roy Orbison. King Leg may be young, but musically he is fully mature.”
And now, a message from the desk of King Leg:
Dear Sir or Madam,
It all started with some songs. Within a moment of time, my legs found themselves carrying those songs down the halls of Capitol Studios. The sound of those songs bouncing off the walls of Studio B was sweet as syrup and smooth as molasses. Each song can stand on its own. Some skip along the rocks, while others roll with western tide. The songs all began somehow and somewhere, but they were all captured uniquely in that moment with a band of LA legmen who strutted their stuff so steadily. MEET KING LEG, was recorded in Hollywood at Capitol Studios and produced by Dwight Yoakam and Chris Lord-Alge.
Dwight happened upon me playing the song “Wanted” at a party not long ago. That unexpected instance provided the impetus for the coalescing and crafting of this eventual record. Chris Lord-Alge left his thumbprint throughout with a distinctive rockin’ immediacy. Together, these two gentlemen gently coaxed the performances and sculpted the supple sounds heard on this record.
These recordings all come together in the full-length album MEET KING LEG, which I’m proud to release on Sire Records. You’ll just have to hear it and decide for yourself.
I hope this finds you well, safe, sound, and secure knowing that I am thinking of you.
