Check out the very cool ONE SHOT video for the track Killing Time
The Ugly Kings, featuring Devil Electric guitarist, Christos Athanasias, are four powerhouse blues rockers drawing influence from an eclectic and dynamic musical background.
They offer a powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene, formulating what can only be described as power blues.
Their catchy riffs and foot-stomping rhythm lay the foundations for the deep reaching and soulful emotive vocals.
The Ugly Kings have supported Airbourne on their successful sold-out east coast Australia tour in January 2017 with great reviews and Airbourne’s main man Joel O’Keefe saying of the band;
“Great show! The Ugly Kings have really got their own thing going on and it rocks! I love all the dynamics, pushing and pulling and then always smashing it out. Great intensity and power.”.
They also supported Rival Sons in 2016 on their first Australia headline side-show in Melbourne during the Black Sabbath ‘The End’ World Tour & were asked directly by Papa Roach to open for them on both their Melbourne shows in January this year.
The Ugly Kings are Russel Clark (Vocals), Christos Athanasias (Guitar), Nicolas Dumont (Bass) and Andy Alkemade (Drums)
