“Over the past year I have been mentally unstable,” frontman David Gunn said. “My intentions have not been as focused as they are typically. This wasn’t obvious until I reviewed the fifty songs me and Josh wrote over the recent couple years. Only then did I realize there wasn’t the concept of a whole record here. Instead the songs played as smaller groups of frenzied schizophrenic fits. So it is likely we will come with several EPs over the year because of this. I don’t think of it as any less of a release it just feels like the best way to deliver the songs.”
“This video is about digital technocracy,” Gunn said. “The demi gods that are the global hegemonies on the earth today and the religion it has grown into. The big tech hand that turns the dial influencing us to love the virtuous tribes we belong to and to hate the out-group of the ‘other.’ Most of all it about how much we hate ourselves …”
KING 810, from Flint, Michigan, formed in 2007. The band’s first release was the independent EP “Midwest Monsters” in 2012, which earned a signing with Roadrunner Records. KING 810 released its second EP, “Proem,” its Billboard-charting debut studio album “Memoirs of a Murderer” in 2014. The following year, the band becamse the first metal group to collaborate with DJ Drama on a project titled “Midwest Monsters 2.” The EP blended metal and rap in classic nu metal fashion and featured several hip hop artists, including Grammy Award-winning Freddie Gibbs.
