KING 810, have released an official music video for “Carve My Name” taken from their debut LP MEMOIRS OF A MURDERER. The video, which is streaming now on KING 810’s official YouTube Channel, is a collection of artwork and photographs from the band’s dedicated fan base known as The Family. The clip serves as a photobook to look back on as both the band and the community that surrounds them grow over the years. MEMOIRS OF A MURDERER is available at KING 810’s webstore and at all DSPs.
Earlier this year KING 810 entered the studio to begin work on their follow-up LP to MEMOIRS OF A MURDERER and took action as a pillar of the Flint, MI community with the release of new music taking aim at the water crisis devastating their hometown. This past year the band released two new tracks: “We Gotta Help Ourselves,” a poignant track supported by a partnership with local Flint outlet Savage Village who created a unique T-shirt design available HERE and “crow’s feet,” which was featured on Not Safe To Drink: Music For Flint Water Crisis Relief, a charity compilation which is available HERE. All proceeds from both the T-shirt design and compilation will be donated to The Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s ‘Flint Child Health & Development Fund.’ For more information on the Community Foundation of Greater Flint and the ‘Flint Child Health & Development Fund’ go to www.flintkids.org.
KING 810’s debut LP, MEMOIRS OF A MURDERER, garnered critical acclaim upon its release with ArtistDirect exclaiming, “It’s a concept album of destruction, sex, and rebirth in blood that’s as potent as anything on the big screen…This is an animal of its own. It’s uncaged now and ready to start a revolution.” Revolver stated, “It’s hostile music for dire times…’Memoirs of a Murderer’ is harsh and aggressive,” while The Detroit News added, “What KING 810 is saying and doing is holding up a mirror to the violent reality of life in Flint… the foursome is doing for Flint what N.W.A. did for Compton, Calif., holding a light up to their city’s harsh realities for all to see.” Kerrang! raved, “This is an album as haunting as it is vicious and disturbing,” and Metal Hammer declared KING 810 “…the most exciting and controversial metal band to emerge from America in a decade.”
