In addition to the release of the album, To Kill A King will also be making a number of appearances throughout North America next month supporting Bastille. Taking in 14 evenings, the tour will visit markets in Canada, the U.S. and culminate in a performance at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, GA, on Tuesday, April 29. Prior to the support tour, the band will be performing as part of this year’s SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX, in mid March. The band will also be supporting Frank Turner on three dates in Arizona from April 16-18. Tickets for the upcoming tour are on sale now and more information can be found on the band’s Facebook page here.

One of the hardest working live bands in the UK, To Kill A KingRalph Pelleymounter (vocals/acoustic guitar), Josh Platman (bass), Josh Taffel (drums), Grant McNeill (electric guitar), and Ben Jackson (synth and keys) – have performed as part of The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, Hyde Park British Summertime, Rolling Stone Weekender Festival and Reeperbahn in Germany, Reading & Leeds, Bestival and Leefest (amongst others)

To Kill A King were main support to Bastille on their March & October 2013 UK tour as well as November’s European Tour. They have also supported The Flaming Lips and Bastille at the Brighton Dome & Dog Is Dead on their April 2013 tour. They have also performed their own headline dates in the UK, selling out London’s Scala and KOKO as well as shows in Munich, Brussels, Hamburg, Cologne and more. The band also contributed to Bad Blood, Bastille’s breakthrough album, most notably on the track being the band’s song “Pompeii.”

With the North American release of the deluxe version of Cannibals With Cutlery and a set of upcoming tour dates supporting Bastille, To Kill A King are clearly one of the most exciting bands to emerge from today’s UK music scene and are poised to draw even more attention throughout the course of 2014.
