Frontman and KING visionary, David Gunn tells us: “‘Hellhounds’ tells people what’s happening in my head, which is a confusing thing even for myself. Around the time of the conception and making of (current album) ‘Suicide King’, I had been diagnosed with an identity disorder (DID) and ‘Hellhounds’ happened to be a place I ended up at one day. As with every thought in my head, it is death-obsessed.
The title borrows from the old Robert Johnson song, ‘Hellhound on my Trail.’ Overall, it reminds the listener – who may have forgotten – that I’m in so much pain, there is absolutely no reason to revere me in any way for anything.”
The Flint-based band’s current album, ‘Suicide King‘ (the follow-up to 2016’s ‘La Petite Mort‘) was produced by KING frontman David Gunn, together with Josh Schroeder.
The album is now available on vinyl over at this link where you can also grab merch bundles and other special product.
Also available is the first instalment of frontman, David Gunn’s eye-opening memoir, ‘Summertime In Murdertown: How I Survived Where The Best Die‘.
In the book, Gunn, a natural storyteller, pulls back the curtain on his hometown of Flint, painting a vivid picture like only those born and raised there can. He offers keen insight into a world that does not allow you to stop working through the struggle, urging the reader to forget back-up plans. Instead, cross the bridge and burn it behind you.
Give yourself no choice. Define the things you want and run towards them.
