Brisbane post-alternative rock outfit Between Kings will release their new full-length album The Escape, this Friday, May 6 via Regime Music Group. The band will also be opening for US modern rock icons Escape The Fate across the country in late May and early June, with a show right here in Newcastle Saturday, June 2nd at the Cambridge Hotel.
Between The Kings play with an immediacy that has been missing from most recent rock music. Their songs pour out of the speakers with emotional intensity and vitality.
When they pick up their instruments they aren’t just playing songs, they are letting the audience experience their most intimate thoughts and feelings.
Their songs speak to their generation with inspiration and a sense of relating to their experiences. Whether that be vocalist Nic Machuca reflecting on his early life experiences growing up in South Africa, surrounded by violence and crime, guitarist Jordan Coyne’s emotional passion from insecurities experienced as a teenager, bass player Jayden Marsh’s born showmanship from a life growing up watching his dad play gigs or drummer Nick “Tricky” Fanning’s desire to play until there was a noise complaint.
Playing with a heartfelt resonance one minute, then mixing it with arena-rock choruses the next, Between Kings triumphantly mix melodic elements and heavy tones equally, making it irresistible for you to throw up you hands, bang your head or even hit the dance floor. That is Between Kings!
