KING OF THE NORTH

More from this Band



Noted as one of Australia's most exciting up and comers, Melbourne based King Of The North are a two-piece rock powerhouse like no other. The duo delivers a jaw-dropping live show with a sound many regard as a new frontier for the guitar/ drums rock format. What creates the massive sound KOTN are known for? The "3 from 1 guitar technique" is the cause of the Wall Of Riff! The idea was pioneered by KOTN singer/guitarist Andrew Higgs, (it makes one guitar sound like two guitars and a bass) it sets KOTN's sound apart from any other two-piece and has since earned Higgsy a listing in the 100th issue of Australian Guitar magazine's "25 Future Legends Of The Guitar". The hard-hitting Danny Leo, regarded by many as one of the top rock drummers in Oz was a Paiste featured artist at 2013's Ultimate Drummers Weekend. Getting to their audience is what KOTN do, they set out on a mammoth 31 date headline tour from March - June in 2014. "The Sound The Underground Australian Tour" was a great success with sold out shows and rave reviews. Four support shows for USA's Monster Magnet were added in April, taking the run to 35 dates. Monster Magnet's front man Dave Wyndorf said about KOTN "You guys fucking ROCK!" KOTN have played on numerous festivals and bills in Australia with an eclectic range of genres. Their hard-hitting, in your face performance and catchy, melodic songs seem to win over fans across the board and ages. Alternative, Mainstream, Metal, Rock, Blues, Stoner Rock and even Folk Festivals have hosted King Of The North. This hard working duo have won the hearts and minds of many and in the process got to play with some of their heroes.
