A gig from To Kill a King, playing beat folk. To Kill A King formed in 2010 and released their debut single ‘Fictional State’ on Ben Lovett’s Communion Label in early 2011. Since then, they have had a residency at Ronnie Scott’s, promoted a successful club night ‘To Kill A King presents…’, embarked on a UK support tour and sold out Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, the Garage and XOYO (as part of Q Magazine’s ‘Now: The Sessions’ series). Last autumn they released the E.P. ‘My Crooked Saint’, which was accompanied by a four-part music video. The lead track ‘Bloody Shirt’ was iTunes single of the week (50,000+ downloads), received Radio 1 airplay from Zane Lowe and Huw Stevens, Radio 2 airplay from Nemone and was playlisted on XFM and Absolute Radio.
