Alan Nimmo: King King - live DVD and CD's announced



“KING KING LIVE”

TRIPLE DISC LIVE CONCERT - RELEASED FRIDAY 21st OCTOBER 2016
INCLUDES 2 CDS + BONUS DVD / ALSO AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

NEW “LIVE” ALBUM DOVETAILS KING KING’S NOVEMBER 2016 UK TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTSBROKEN WITT REBELS

Manhaton Records are pleased to announce the release of King King's very first live album "King King Live" – released on Friday 21st October 2016. King King's first-ever live album dovetails the band's upcoming November 2016 UK Tour with special guests Broken Witt Rebels (see below for tour dates).

A Deluxe Edition 3-disc set, available now to pre-order at Amazon.co.uk, includes two CDs that captures the live energy of King King's sold-out hometown concert at O2 ABC in Glasgow on 14th May 2016, plus a bonus DVD film of the band performing to a sold-out crowd at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on 13th April 2016. Says King King's lead singer and guitarist, Alan Nimmo, "We are excited about 'King King Live' because it's the first time we've ever released a live album. It's a great testament to how our audiences drive us on to perform to the best of our abilities. The audience reaction to the live performances is amazing. This release couldn't have been possible without them."

King King recently won five awards at the 2016 British Blues Awards including Best Album ("Reaching For The Light"), Best Vocalist(Alan Nimmo), Best Bass Player (Lindsay Coulson), Best Song ("Rush Hour") and Best Songwriter. Having scored three radio hit singles on Planet Rock with the songs "Crazy" and "Hurricane", and "Rush Hour", in 2015 King King received a nomination for Best New Band at the Classic Rock Awards. King King followed up with a UK arena tour supporting Thunder that was highlighted at a London's Wembley Arena, which won them over a raft of new rock fans.

Classic rock legend Rik Emmett and his band RESolution9 release new album

"RES9" will be released worldwide on November 11

Allied Forces! Rock & Roll Machine! Magic Power! If you're fan of classic rock, you should know these songs by legendary Canadian rock band Triumph by heart.

Former Triumph guitarist Rik Emmett signed with Mascot Label Group a few months ago, and it's time to reveal his new band and his new album. The members of RESolution9 are from Rik’s touring quartet: Dave Dunlop on guitar, Steve Skingley on bass, and Paul DeLong on drums, with Dave and Steve co-producing the project.

RES9 features contributions from Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie, and Rik Emmett’s onetime Triumph bandmates, bassist Mike Levine and drummer Gil Moore.

The first new track "Human Race", featuring a guest appearance by Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, will premiere in in less then two weeks. Keep an eye out on mascotlabelgroup.com, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

RES9 is available to pre-order on CD, black and red vinyl. The red vinyl is limited to only 300 copies worldwide, and available exclusively on the MLG webstore. These will sell out quickly, so act fast!
