King Creature Excel With Brilliant New Single
2020 continues along a dark path, but small rays of hope are on the horizon; not content with a tentative glimmer, King Creature hit us with a 1000 megawatt beam of blazing glory in the shape of their latest single.
Wisdom Told is the first release from their upcoming 2nd album Set The World On Fire and further proof that these Cornish rockers can cut it with the very best. Over the years giants of rock music have mixed up loud and proud to expose their more gentle side – think Zep’s Stairway or GnR’s November Rain, exceptional ballads driven by powerful melodies. King Creature have shared great melodies with us previously, but Wisdom Told is their piece de resistance.
Dedicated to all Dads everywhere, those we’ve lost and those still with us, the emotion in bassist Dave Kellaway’s vocals is almost too overwhelming; as if we are secretly eavesdropping on a private, one sided conversation between father and son. Guitarists Matt Karl Vincent and Dave Evans excel themselves on Wisdom Told, their precision craftsmanship sends shivers down the spine with every single note. Drummer Jack Sutton Bassett keeps things brilliantly tight and passionate without crashing the mood of this stunning ballad.
Creature fans responded to a shout out from the band for photos of their dads, all the photos are included in a beautifully created video newly released on Planet Rock. Be warned - Wisdom Told’s visual homage will break even the most hard hearted rocker:
King Creature worked on the new album during lockdown tucked away in a converted garage, liaising online with legendary engineers/producers John Cornfield and Mike Exeter. The band celebrate the new single and the launch of Set The World On Fire with a sold out socially distanced Cornish gig next week which will be made available online at a later date. The boys play Monsterfest in November before heading out on a winter tour with Orange Goblin.
