Online PR News – 15-August-2012 – Austin, Texas – King Kohn proudly announces his third album release and sixth studio production since diving headlong into the music scene with the release of his debut Album, Peace Love Death, on July 13, 2011. King Kohn has gained national airplay and recognition on famous radio shows like Dr. Demento (Die! Santa Die! EP released December 1, 2011) and CBS Bostonâ€™s The Toucher and Rich Show (featuring a fourteen minute roast of Peace Love Death). His offbeat, eclectic style combines acoustic, folk, 60s and 70s rock, theatrical, classical and metal music in a unique tapestry.
"...hymnal folk storytellin' but with a Metal twist, backed by beautiful melodies, sung with a genuine fragility. King Kohn unravels a tumbling vocal style which along with the pluralism of instruments creates a strangely touching expression of unbridled joy."
