It’s okay if you haven’t heard the name Speaking The King’s before—because after their debut album, Carousel, drops, it’s all you’re going to be talking about. The Orange County, California-based quartet, formed in 2011, was discovered by former A Day To Remember guitarist Tom Denney before they even had a singer—singer Bobby Burap was quickly recruited and the band hasn’t looked back since. Carousel, produced by Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence), is loaded with slab after of slab of popcore that is just as comfortable with delivering soaring choruses as it is heavy-hitting breakdowns. Today, we’re debuting the music video for the new track “Motion Sickness.” Speaking The King’s explains:
“‘Motion Sickness’ is one of our favorite songs on the record because it’s about the familiar feelings of being away from your significant other. Whether you’re a musician or a businessperson, everyone knows these hardships you go through when you are gone from the one place in life that is solid. Not only is it a great introduction to the band’s music, but the video also captures that energy and fun that we bring with every live show. Our goal by the end of this video is for you to walk away humming the chorus along with an insatiable urge to catch us the next time we come to your city!”
Speaking The King’s’ Carousel comes out October 16 via Nuclear Blast.
