ABOUT THE BAND
powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene
The Ugly Kings offer a stripped down but powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene; formulating what can only be described as ‘Power Blues’.
Memorable beats, thunderous bass lines and an electrifying barrage of bluesy ‘grit’ riffs tied with raw and emotive vocals.
Fans of The Doors, Jack White, Black Sabbath, Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, Rival Sons etc will love the sound these guys create.
Their debut album Darkness Is My Home has been hailed as one of the releases of the year here in Oz and abroad.
Friday the 13th, November 2020 marks 5 years 'Of Sins' for The Ugly Kings.
Originally released on Friday the 13th, November 2015.
To celebrate the occasion, we are excited to partner with the band to release the Deluxe Edition on beautiful vinyl made right here in Melbourne. The deluxe edition features additional songs from the band's long lost sessions. 13 songs in total on Catalogue number TCR-013, with a digital release date on Friday the 13th, November 2020 and vinyl expected to ship mid Jan 2021. All tracks have been remastered. Pre-order now!
Two Variants; Red Horizon (exclusive), Deadly Sins Splatter and a handful of Test Pressings are available from Tuff Cuff Records. A third variant; Friday the 13th Paranoia Splatter is available exclusively from The Ugly Kings Bandcamp page.
Their ability to take hard blues rock and twist and distort it into darker, more unique territories is akin to that of Queens of the Stone Age’. ‘The Ugly Kings’ brand of power blues is captivating’.
