Wie bereits angedroht: KING 810 geben via Roadrunner Records den Veröffentlichungstermin ihres Debütalbums bekannt.

"Memoirs Of A Murderer" wird am 15.08.2014 erscheinen.

Zum Einstimmen ein Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung:

"Memoirs of a Murderer is a memoir of the life of frontman David Gunn set to the backdrop of Flint, MI.  Cut to a crackling old tape recorder, Gunn's narrative eclipses three distinct movements, traveling from a very real place down a rabbit hole into the abstract. The three movements align with Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality, in which the three elements of personality - known as the id, the ego and the superego - work together to create complex human behaviors.

Whether shootings at nine-years-old or knife fights as a pre-teen, the first act of Memoirs of a Murderer captures the violence that plagues the streets of Flint. Songs like the introductory tracks "Killem All" and "Fat Around The Heart" are blood-spattered evidence of that. This is a lament born out of the necessity for survival as Gunn and his bandmates - Andrew Beal (guitar), Eugene Gill (bass) and Andrew Workman (drums) - have formed a bond forged by the pressures of the streets. They are a family who look after each other, there is love in the belly of this beast.

The first of two spoken words found on Memoirs of a Murder transitions the record into its second movement where Gunn explores themes of love. Unlike the brotherhood discoursed in part one of the record, tracks like “Eyes” and “Devil Don’t Cry” immerse the album in echoes of lost love. 

Transcending the tangible, a second spoken word acts as the vehicle to the final segment of Memoirs of a Murderer which includes a message from Gunn’s mother urging him to let go of the violence back in the battlefields of Flint. During an extremely candid song, "Write About Us", Gunn rattles off loved ones in his life by name—and their own trials. During the final musical memoir, "State of Nature", Gunn pleads not for redemption but remembrance as what may or may not be left of him floats off into the ether, further than ever from where he first began this journey of self-examination.

 These are David Gunn’s Memoirs, chilling and starkly poetic, introspective and brutally honest.  Keep this in mind as you listen to these tapes."

Seit heute ist auch der Clip zu 'Fat Around The Heart" im Netz zu sehen. Visuell kann dieser wirklich überzeugen. Es lohnt sich also, mal einen Blick drauf zu werfen (auch wenn man der Musik von KING 810 nicht sehr viel abgewinnen kann...).
