To Kill A King live at Hop Yard

Hop Yard Brewing Co presents To Kill A King
To Kill A King’s last UK headline tour in March 2015 culminated in a show at Shepherds Bush Empire, and later that year they were picked by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens to headline The Lake stage at Latitude.
After releasing two acclaimed albums, 2013’s ‘Cannibals With Cutlery’ and 2015’s self-titled follow-up ‘To Kill A King’, and touring incessantly since 2010, To Kill a King took a year off the road to concentrate on writing their third album. When not occupied with this, they’ve been working with other acts, singer Ralph Pelleymounter writing with the likes of Rag’n’ Bone Man and Zibra, keyboardist Ben producing acts like Childcare and Little White Things.
To Kill A King: Ralph Pelleymounter (vocals, guitar), James Ball (bass), Ben Jackson (keyboards), Grant McNeill (guitar), and Josh Taffel (drums)
