To Kill A King take on Europe

Last month, To Kill A King took their live show around Europe.

In support of latest single, ‘Spiritual Dark Age’; a high energy, truth-declaring folk rock rampage of today, the shows provide a place for cathartic release and frenzied freedom from the corporate arms and modern menaces. It, like them, is a song that is quite simply unstoppable. Declaring their prowess in every song that they release, this is band that have relentlessly written sincerely for fans, created music and plugged in their guitars for live shows.

To Kill A King can’t be tamed as they prepare to release their third album due early 2018, with a string of UK tour dates to open the year.

Here’s what they got up to in Europe.
