The King Lot
WinterStorm are delighted to be able to confirm that The King Lot will be returning to the Troon stage on Saturday 25th of November. Having booked the band last year on the recommendation of FM's Jim Kirkpatrick it actually took til about three weeks after their performance on the Troon stage before I actually saw them!! Hopefully if we are a bit more relaxed we might actaully see some bands on the stage this year!
Having now seen them live three times it is a pleasure to have them back again for 2017 and we all look forward to seeing the new line up and hearing album number two as well.
The King Lot is a rock trio from the heart of Scotland formed in 2013 by longtime friends Jason Sweeney, Chris Gillon and Michael Fairbairn. Melodic, with a hard rock edge, the band straddle a few rock genres and are fast becoming known for being masters of earwormery. You would also never guess they’re a trio based on the depth of sound they create!
Their self titled debut album was released via Crown Jewel Records, the band’s own record label, to critical acclaim and received rave reviews from the likes of Planet Rock, Fireworks Magazine and PowerPlay.
The band have grown year on year playing shows with like minded rock acts such as Tyketto, The Answer, Inglorious, Big Country and Dan Reed to name a few. They have picked up a loyal fan base along the way, developing a reputation as a solid live band.
2017 saw the departure of Michael Fairbairn and the arrival of young guitarist Jay Moir who has brought a fresh, new dimension to the band.
The King Lot are presently recording the follow up to their debut album and a release is expected in late 2017.
The King Lot are
- Jason Sweeney (Vocals, Bass)
- Chris Gillon (Drums, Vocals)
- Jay Moir (Guitar, Vocals)
