WE ARE
THE KING’S PARADE

VIEW AS RAW TXT FILE

This alt-soul outfit from London are a career artist in the making. Known for illuminating a deep love of classic soul and Motown with melodic pop, The King’s Parade indulge us with a soul-inspired blueprint of their very own, consistently offering a timeless familiarity and emotional authenticity that sees a loyal and expectant fanbase continue to grow by the day.

2020 brings us the release of their debut album, due for release this December; another stunning collection of songs from the group, recorded and Produced by Grammy® Award Winner, Guy Massey (Ed Sheeran, Jack Savoretti, The Libertines) and Marco Pasquariello at Snap Studios (Coldplay, Snow Patrol) in London.

The album boasts four lead singles, with feel-good track Mario giving us the first taste of what’s to come.

Frontman Olly Corpe explains: “Mario is about human connection; the moment when you feel so close to someone that the world around you starts to disappear. You feel like you’ve just uncovered a huge secret but you can’t find the words to describe it to anyone else. In this track we wanted to explore that beauty and joy that comes with those feelings and the way it can transport you to a completely surreal universe. Like most things in life, you go through waves of pure happiness, excitement, fear and sadness, but you just seem to ride those waves oblivious to the chaos you leave behind.”

Prior to this, 2019 saw the release of their most recent EP, Mad, which was well received by both fans and critics alike and led to a sold out headline European tour across Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the UK in the spring. The EP rallied support from the likes of Tom Robinson (“An incredibly accomplished sound worthy of a far wider audience”), Earmilk (“One of the most naturally talented groups out there”) and Clash (“The group are a sought after creative force”).

With an already impressive catalogue of EPs, a few of their standout tracks include ‘Silhouette’, ‘Night Calls’, ‘Mad’ and ‘Vagabond’, with another reviewer drawing welcome comparison of music alchemy “reminiscent of both The Black Keys and Alabama Shakes”. The band received private investment from a number of music industry executives earlier this year, and as the first release under new management, this debut album chalks a key milestone in their emerging career.
