The King in Yellow started as a result of a couple failed projects in early January of 2011. After the lifetime of guitarist Nathan DeMatteis’ and drummer Brandon Hellebuyck’s high school math-rock band came to an end, Nathan started writing music with guitarist Andrew Carmichael in a short-lived indie band with Nathan on bass guitar. The band quickly deteriorated from lack of interest from most members, seeing as the music was almost completely composed of riffs that Andrew had recycled from songs that he had written prior.

With two bands full of great musicians in shambles, Nathan and Andrew got together with an idea to start a new project, combining Andrew’s post-rock and jazz influences, Nathan’s math-rock and post-hardcore influences, and Brandon’s pop and punk influences. And so, the three started writing music casually until finding their first bassist, Travis Spencer and becoming The King in Yellow.

Later on, as their style was still only starting to become more defined, bassist Travis Spencer moved on to a praise and worship position, moving to Pennsylvania. While they were all very happy for Travis, is still left a vacancy, in which Parker Estopinal, the bassist from the aforementioned math-rock band, filled. Now The King in Yellow is steady playing shows and writing new music, and they look forward to exploring their talents, refining, and seeing just how far this will take them.
