SPEAKING THE KING’S | New track ‘Motion Sickness’ streaming online

September 7, 2015



Orange County, California quartet Speaking the King’s will release their debut full-length ‘Carousel’ via Nuclear Blast Records on October 16th. The album is frontloaded with moshy breakdowns which are tempered by soaring melodic choruses that will camp out in your brain for weeks at a time. Today the band are offering fans a first taster of the album in the form of a lyric video. Listen to new track ‘Motion Sickness’ over on YouTube:

The band explain: “‘Motion Sickness’ is one of our favourite songs on the record because it’s about the familiar feelings of being away from your significant other. Whether you’re a musician or a business person, everyone knows these hardships you go through when you are gone from the one place in life that is solid. Not only is it a great introduction to the band’s music but the video also captures that energy and fun that we bring with every live show. Our goal by the end of this video is for you to walk away humming the chorus along with an insatiable urge to catch us the next time we come to your city!”

Carousel was recorded with the mighty Steve Evetts at the helm who lists Suicide Silence, Architects and Every Time I Die among his producing credits.

Speaking The King’s’ humble origins can be traced back to 2011, when it began as a project between former bandmates Justin Bock, fellow guitarist Mike Entin and drummer Will Peacock. Their demos captured the attention of A Day to Remember producer, songwriter and former guitarist Tom Denney (Pierce the Veil & Secrets), who ushered the band into his Florida-based studio to record their first arsenal of music. The band booked studio time but was missing a critical element – a singer! The fevered search for a frontman ended with Bobby Burap, who was the total package, thanks to his stage presence and his ability to sing in both clean and aggressive registers. Plus, the singer’s welding talents were a bonus since touring bands never know when they’ll suffer from a broken axle in the middle of nowhere and in 100-degree heat.

Since their inception, Speaking the King’s have shared stages with bands such as We Came As Romans, Of Mice & Men, Winds of Plague, Bleeding Through and BlessthefallSpeaking the King’s are carving out their status as a band to watch in 2015 and beyond.
