Newcastle Kings - A wall of distorted guitars,

and a rhythm section like a kick in the chest. A

poignant and guttural lyrical exploration of

mental health, and lack thereof... Come sing

along to pissed off victory anthems for the

broken hearted.

Recording and touring since 2011, Newcastle

Kings has solidified themselves as a

formidable headliner. They will leave you

shaken and humming new melodies in your

poor, hungover, Sunday head.

Honing their sound in the isolation of the

frozen Canadian north with no music scene

melting pot to speak of, Newcastle Kings were

left to draw inward.

They have created their own aggressive

expression of alternative rock. A sound that

pays homage to the explosivity of the 90's and

2000's, while pushing the genre forward,

exploring the uncomfortable corners of the


Songwriter Skylar Dayton has drawn from

personal tribulations as well as both literary

and film inspiration. Canvassing topics like

depression, addiction, anger and heartache, in

an earnest attempt to move the global and

cultural conversation on mental health and

wellness forward.

Newcastle Kings have taken their new brand

of rock to stage after stage, both headlining

independent tours and finding themselves on

stages opening for hit acts like Big Sugar,

Nashville Pussy, Sloan and One Bad Son.

Following sophomore release “Misery Music”

Newcastle Kings traveled to Chalet Recording

Studio in Toronto, to work with

producer/mixer Brian Moncarz.

Brian has worked under Bob Ezrin (Alice

Cooper, Kiss) and David Bottrill. He is

currently mixing the new Tea Party album and

has actively worked with Our Lady Peace, The

Trews and many great Canadian Rock Bands.

Two new singles, “Dreams (about cocaine)”,

and “Problem Solver” are to be delivered to

radio in the first quarter of 2020
