'Compare Scars' is the new single from To Kill A King, out 1 June on Xtra Mile Recordings. You can stream it right now below. Brand new video will be available soon.
Described as “instantly, insanely catchy” by the Guardian, 'Compare Scars' is the follow up to recent single Love Is Not Control, a Huw Stephens Single Of The Week at Radio 1 and a Track Of The Day at XFM. Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Alice Levine, Greg James and Fearne Cotton also played the single on Radio 1, and Huw Stephens had the band in for a session, which you can hear here.
To Kill A King’s April 2015 headline UK tour culminated with their biggest headline date so far at Shepherds Bush Empire. This summer, they've been hand-picked by Huw Stephens to headline the Lake Stage at the beautiful Latitude Festival on 16 - 19 July 2015. Further festivals in the UK and across Europe to be announced soon.
'Compare Scars' and 'Love Is Not Control' are taken from the critically acclaimed new album To Kill A King, which is out now. The self-titled follow up to their 2013 debut Cannibals With Cutlery was produced by Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag n Bone Man) and Ben Jackson of the band, and is the sound of a band hitting the peak of their powers. It’s the sort of record that could only be made now, an album where stadium-sized choruses, artful dynamism and sonic experimentalism slide seamlessly together.
