The King Hats

The King Hats

 Glasgow, Scotland, GBR

We spend our days writing tunes & our nights getting lost in them. We're from the land music forgot & yet it brought us together. We enjoy a right rave up & it comes across in our songs. We love hard, aggressive music with sweeping romantic melodies & love playing it. We hope you'll like listening.


Since forming in late 2007 we have since supported And So I Watch You From Afar, Jamie T, Ida Maria, Sound of Guns, and The Rascals to name a few.

We have played the T Break Stage at T in the Park, goNorth Festival, The NME Award Show Tour, King Tut's Summer Nights and King Tut's New Year Revolution.

We released our debut single "I Was The Riot at The Art School Last Night" on King Tuts Recordings.

We have just released our debut EP "First Light". You can have a listen to the first 5 tracks in the audio section of this EPK.

The advice for this section is to list our influences. I think that would turn in to a novel. We're influenced by just about everything. We love the sounds and epicness of post rock and soundscape. We love the raw, visceral energy of punk. We love the humble and intimate lyrics of folk music. We love to dance and party to anything with a good beat; be it Pop, Hip-hop, or big beat electro music. We love the dirtiness of dubstep. We love metal, classical, jazz, math rock, the list could go on and on. In short we love music; especially when it's good. That's why we love creating it, and playing it; and why it's so touching when someone listens to your music and loves it too.
