KERRY KING announces London headline show for June

KERRY KING has announced his first UK headline show for London’s Electric Ballroom for Tuesday 18th June. Tickets are on sale at 10am today (17th April) at the Live Nation ticket store.

The show will come in the wake of his first ever UK solo band appearance at Download Festival at Donington Park on Sunday 16th June.

KING’s solo debut album, From Hell I Rise is set for a 17th May release via Reigning Phoenix Music. Last week he unveiled another taste of that album via the video of ‘Residue,’ which you can watch below. Co-directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera, who’ve made videos for Jerry Cantrell, Sebastian Bach and Killer Be Killed, the video was shot at their Phoenix studio earlier this month and features KING’s new band – Mark Osegueda (vocals), Phil Demmel (guitar), Kyle Sanders (bass), and Paul Bostaph (drums).

FROM HELL I RISE Tracklisting:

Where I Reign
Idle Hands
Trophies Of The Tyrant
Everything I Hate About You
Two Fists
From Hell I Rise


SLAYER’s co-founding guitarist, KERRY KING, is one of the most instantly recognizable and well-respected musicians in thrash/punk/metal, and over the past nearly-40-years, has pioneered some of the most brutal and revolutionary music ever created. KING wrote or co-wrote some of SLAYER’s most beloved songs, including ‘Mandatory Suicide,’ ‘Repentless,’ ‘Hell Awaits,’ ‘Disciple’ and ‘Raining Blood.’ Known for his allegiance to the Raiders, his love of snakes and his taste for Jagermeister, KING is outspoken, opinionated and authentic to the core. Metal flows in KING’s veins; he knows how to write what he writes and has no interest in changing that. In perpetuity, KERRY KING is a self-proclaimed “metal kid.”
