Remember when bands released an album a year and toured 'til the wheels fell off the tour van? If so, prepare yourself to meet your new favorite act: Palace of the King, a raucous, hard-rocking six-piece hailing from Melbourne, Australia. Having spent their formative years storming stages in every corner of Australia - alongside acts as varied as MUSEXPO alums Airbourne and Canada's The Tea Party - this is a group that has earned their stripes and wears them with pride. Far from a grave-robbing retro trip, Palace Of The King has just as much in common with Rival Sons, Graveyard and Jack White as they do Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. "Palace Of The King is literally like a huge ground-shaking Palace of RIFFS, SOUL and Rock'n'Roll!" comments Joel O'Keeffe, lead singer and guitarist of Airbourne. In 2016, less than 12 months removed from their debut disc, the sextet unveiled second full-length Valles Marineris, which deepens Palace Of The King's footprint on the international rock music scene by expanding on the "raw, energetic, imaginative and boundary-pushing" (Dedicated Rocker Society) qualities of their debut through an all-new ten-track collection of blues and psych-infused hard rock. This is rock & roll the way it should be.
