To Kill A King’s new album ‘Spiritual Dark Age’ is due in January

They've also a UK tour coming up.
To Kill A King have announced details of their new album.

‘Spiritual Dark Age’ will be released on 12th January via These Are My Bones, preceded by the title-track.

The record also features recent tracks ‘The Good Old Days’ and ‘The Unspeakable Crimes Of Peter Popoff’.

“’The Spiritual Dark Age’ is the last three years of my life painstakingly distilled into 40 minutes of music,” says frontman Ralph Pelleymounter of the album.

“It has ballads for my single friends watching everyone else gradually pair off, and deities and fables getting drunk in bars. It has moments of anger and disgust at characters like Peter Popoff and their parasitic feeding of the most vulnerable people, and it has folk songs about two gods who’d rather burn down the world than admit they still love each other.

“But hopefully, in amongst the chaos and darker tales, it has an underlying message that compassion being such a beautiful and complex thing may just save the day.”
