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 discussing how they crafted the sound for the new release under the guidance of the mighty Steve Evetts (Hatebreed, Suicide Silence, Architects, Every Time I Die). Watch the trailer below.
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 Blessthefall. Speaking the King’s are carving out their status as a band to watch in 2015 and beyond.
