SEPTEMBER 26, 2016: Orange County's "salad rock" band King Shelter made noise with their latest single, "Preoccupy," which was described by Indie Shuffle as "several familiar pieces of different styles of songs that you're heard before mixed into one song that makes sonic love and produces a pleasantly audible baby." Today, the band is thrilled to partner withBuzzbands LA to drop their newest track, titled "Everything Hurts" before the group embarks on a West Coast tour with Australian rockers Sticky Fingers. Here is what Taylor Hecocks of King Shelter had to say about the song:
"'Everything Hurts' is my grandfather's story. Life is hard. The American dream isn't really a dream; it's a vortex of preoccupations. But after all is said and done, the corner store is still gonna be selling those sweet cowboy killers n vodka. For the Krispis giveth and the Krispis taketh away." - Taylor Hecocks, King Shelter
KING SHELTER is a band from Orange County, California that has a sound that can only be described as "Salad Rock," a healthy mixture of rock, consisting of surf, grunge, alternative and anything in between. With the obvious layers of intertwining genres (or ingredients, like a salad) creating a unique sound, they also bring their complex lyrics and ideas to remind listeners to think for themselves and that no one person is better than another-in other words, it's music made for the people, by the people.
"If we want things to be better, then we have to do it. Change happens by people doing things, by people disregarding classes and associations. I want people to see what is important. People are important, art is important, output is important, YOU ARE IMPORTANT." - Taylor Hecocks
