Canadian rock trio KING BULL recently signed to Riot Records (part of the Golden Robot Global Entertainment Group) and today they release their first single for the label ‘Pay Attention’.

‘Pay Attention’ is powered by a punk tinged, rock ignited fuel. Fired up by intricate licks, buzz cutter guitar tones and uniquely edgy vocals it encompasses what is great about Rock Music (like Iggy Pop jamming with Kiss and The Sex Pistols).

Hailing from Red Deer, Alberta which is not the most artistic of all Canadian communities, KING BULL has been plying the trade for the last 13 years.

A closer look and you might find a striking resemblance between “Red Deer Alberta 2020” and the 1977 film “Slap Shot”, only now the Hanson brothers have given up on hockey and started playing rock and roll.

Thirteen years down the road, some minor tweaks to the name and lineup and KING BULL is operating smoother than ever with its oldest member still less than a quarter of a century old. Their 2019 debut release, ‘Mouthbreathers’ and ‘Sha-na-na’, a two-song commentary on modern identity alongside the never-ending western Canadian tour in support, recently landed them on Australian based and globally operated record label Riot Records.

This is a band for fans of The Who, Iggy Pop, Against Me, AC/DC, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie, The Drones, Neil Young etc… (anything with an electric guitar that snarls a bit, really).

“King Bull reaches for the primal energy of their garage-rock forebears without sacrificing musicianship or theatrics. Their sets come complete with tarps-off Who covers, leaving floating drum kits and splintered instruments not far from the imagination. These fellas can rock, plain and simple.” — Red Deer Scene Magazine
