Music

Press


One minute into track one, three things immediately came to mind. One, this is a very vocal driven band, which is rare lately with bands putting out CD?s with the vocals just being part of the music, or sometimes hiding behind the music. But these guys can sing, and they put it right out front to be heard, and understood.

ACES OVER KINGS, Seattle-This band wins a thumbs up from the get-go with a gambling reference in their name and one of the better recordings of the lot. Catchy Cali pop punk. - -Dan Halligan | Tablet Magazine | Issue 98


This is a hooky, impassioned song that's really well-recorded. The band is tight, the guitars hum loudly, the structure isn't formulaic, and if someone hasn't picked this up for a record deal yet there is something seriously wrong with the universe, more so than normal, I mean. - audiostreet.net

Bio

Aces Over Kings is a four piece pop-punk band from Seattle, Washington. Its members (Josh, James, Aaron, and Brian) have been together for approximately three years, releasing their first independent CD in early 2004 titled fight or flight, and a second CD in the fall of 2005 titled What Doesn’t Kill You… Their music is melodic, varying from fast punk rock to slower pop-punk, and is positive and upbeat with no profanity.

Aces Over Kings began playing shows around the Seattle area in May 2004 and had the opportunity to open for Amber Pacific in October of that year. In August of 2006 the band was honored to play alongside national acts Anberlin and MXPX at Freedom Fest 2006. In March of 2007 Aces Over Kings completed a 21 day national tour of the USA. Show highlights included playing at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, the Zephyr in Reno, Lenny’s in Atlanta, Club Midway in New York, the Irving Theater in Indianapolis, Silvie’s in Chicago and The Cricket on the Hill in Denver. As of April 2007 they have performed a total of 82 times.

In March 2005, the song Caffeine from Fight or Flight received national airplay on the Alan Kabal Show (www.radioalan.com) during its “Moment of Greatness” segment, a regular piece that features unsigned bands. Caffeine is also featured on an off-roading DVD titled Wheeling the Northwest 2, produced by Donkey Worx Productions (www.donkeyworx.net). The band was also selected to perform live on a television show in Ellensburg, Washington called Ellensburg Extreme. In April 2005 the band received some praise in issue #98 of local Seattle music publication Tablet Magazine (www.tabletmag.com). Starting in January 2006 the band launched a national specialty radio promotion with Notorious Radio. In the first week they charted on Friday Morning Quarterback (www.fmqb.com) at number 13 with their single “Homeward Bound.”

Aces Over Kings’ web presence is growing by the month. The band has over 30,000 friends and 75,000 plays (and counting) on myspace.com, and has a presence on nearly every major punk and music internet website. Fan mail has arrived from all over the world, including England, Canada, Australia, Philippines, Germany, France, Denmark, Japan, and the US.

The band has worked hard to market itself in ways that are both effective and economical. A sizable amount of merchandise is available at every show, including CDs, T-shirts for both men and women, buttons and stickers. They have always given away buttons and stickers at shows to demonstrate their appreciation for the fans.

Aces Over Kings is highly motivated to make a lasting musical impression on both a national and international level. They are willing to work as hard as necessary to make something out of the music and melody they hear in their hearts, and so they will be playing shows, promoting, touring, making friends, and writing music until the entire world has a chance to hear them. Aces Over Kings is here for the long haul, so keep an eye out wherever you are - there’s a good chance you will be hearing about them!
