KINGS NEVER DIE from New York & NJ arrived on the Hardcore Punk-Rock scene with their debut EP "?Raise a Glass" just moments before the COVID Pandemic shutdown the entire music industry. Although a large chunk of touring and immediate future plans we?re derailed, that did not slow down their debut release from putting a mark on the hardcore, punk and metal scene. "Raise A Glass" was immediately felt and spent seven weeks on the prestigious Coretex Records Top 20, was named "Record of the Week" and topped out at Number 4! An energizing accomplishment for a new band?s debut release and virtually with zero touring support of the record.
Despite the challenges imposed upon the music industry by COVID and upon their personal lives, Kings Never Die remained very active and has a full plate on tap for 2021, starting with a follow-up EP, "It?s What We Live For", consisting of three new tracks and two remixed/remastered tracks from their "Raise A Glass" EP. Joining forces with the legendary mixing engineer/producer Jerry Farley (Sick Of It All, Madball) and Laz Pina (Ill Nino), Kings Never Die?s "It?s What We Live For" EP is sonic barrage of classic infused punk and hardcore with tasty, memorable melodies, neatly packaged in a powder keg of high intensity of explosives.
Nobody knows the effects of COVID better than guitarist/song-writer Dan Nastasi who lost his father to COVID in September 2020. "It?s What We Live For" first single, "Pure Gold" is a memorable tribute to Nastasi?s father. Nastasi reflects, "We thought it was important to release a few tracks that we recorded during 2020 that, most importantly, we love, and wanted to share with everybody while we are gearing up to record our upcoming full-length. There?s really nothing anyone can do about the lost time this past year brought, or the pandemic, other than keep working and doing what we love to do. It?s the character that my father instilled in me".
Other new tracks on their upcoming "It?s What We Live For" EP are "Minor Threats" and "We Got Tonight to Fight", which features a vocal guest appearance by longtime friend and historical hardcore figure, Ratbones. The EP is rounded out with remixed versions of "Never Know What You Might Find" and "Raise a Glass", featuring and co-written by Agnostic Front?s Vinnie Stigma & Mike Gallo. "It?s What We Live For" features drummers Steve Gallo & John Milnes, both exceptional drummers with rich musical resumes. Kings Never Die expresses the utmost gratitude to both John and Steve for providing the backbone for the band and helping to get KND off the ground on their first two EP releases.
"It's What We Live For" hits the streets on March 26th through Upstate Records and digitally through Blood Blast Distribution.
