King and Auerbach set out to capture the classic power trio sound, which was pioneered in the late 60s and 70s, with a distinct sonic triad of bass, drums, and guitar. The album was recorded at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville summer 2021, with acclaimed musicians including Chris St. Hilaire on drums and Nick Movshon on bass. Songs were written by King and Auerbach in collaboration with legends such as Desmond Child and Angelo Petraglia.

You can hear influences ranging as far as ZZ Top, Steve Miller Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd on ‘Hard Working Man’, which is a great taster of what is still to come on ‘Young Blood’. There are also UK tour dates too:

JUN 23 THU – Fairview Park – Dublin, Ireland*

JUN 26 SUN – The Globe – Cardiff, United Kingdom
