The Bullet Kings, were formed
by chance in August 2006, after we did an impromptu gig as a 3 piece at the
end of the Spit & Sawdust Tour.
...The reaction we received from this performance spurred us on to write a whole new set as The Bullet Kings and gig as much as we could.
The line up is:-
Wilf - Bass and main vocals
Andy - Drums
Carl - Guitar - backing vocals
After recording 2 demos that got great reviews we have just finished writting & recording our debut album entittled "Rebels Without Reason" which was released on Casket Records, we got publishing via Sherlock Holmes Music Ltd, and world wide distribution via PHD (Plastic Head Distribution)
Followed by 3 vinyl singles (coloured of course) on Voltage Records and our 2nd album "long Time Dead" again on Casket Records
The albums the shops and I Tunes
If you are a punk label that wants tracks on comp CD's or a promoter that wants to book us, or a band that wants to arrange gigs with us please do contact us at, ( we will gig almost anywhere...)
