King’s X hits the road as ‘Gretchen…’ turns 30

In case you’ve been living under a rock, King’s X has been working hard on its first album since ‘XV’ (2008). The band recorded at Blacksound Studio in Pasadena, Calif., with ‘Strum Sum Up’ producer Michael Parnin. Details have been kept very close to the vest, but to a person the band seems very pleased with both the process and the results.

One thing did emerge, thanks to the keen eyes of an Aussie King’s X fan, an in-studio whiteboard list of potential working song titles:

New Joys for The World
Basically Saints
She Called Me Home
Flood Pt. 1
Sister Geno
The Whole World Is Crying
Unfiltered Luv
Take the Time
All Gods Children
Give It Up
Jesus He Don’t
Keep on Goin’
Let It Rain
Nothing But The [illegible]

Roy Turner was in town, gathering footage for the King’s X documentary he’s making. Along the way he captured these in-studio progress reports. Yes, they’re from Week 1, but Turner promises he’ll release another installment once this one reaches 1,000 views

And now the road beckons. The first leg, detailed below, hits the northeast US. Who knows, maybe they’ll perform some of the new material. And you’ll definitely hear songs from ‘Gretchen Goes To Nebraska,’ which turns 30 today! Europe follows in the fall.
