Whilst ‘hes wrapping up his final US tour dates with GHOST, Europe is readying itself in preparation for the arrival of KING DUDE.
KING DUDE is the brainchild of TJ Cowgill, and when writing latest album Fear, TJ set out to write “the most horrifying music I could“. KING DUDE will be translating the terror into a live setting throughout Europe this summer, where TJ will be joined on stage by Joey D’Auria, and David Nelson.
Pulling together the biblical sound and isolation of the bygone days of revelation with an atmosphere filled with hope and salvation, KING DUDE has woven his own unique brand of purely American music. Drawing inspiration from British folk, Americana, Country, Blues and the ever-bewitching heavy metal – all these influences can be heard in the thirteen tracks that make up Fear.
Fear will be released by Ván Records this summer.
