Original Philadelphia Pop-Punk; this week’s featured band is Could’ve Been Kings.
Abiding by Plato’s philosophy that “music and rhythm find their way into secret places of the soul,” Could’ve Been Kings are kings in their own way. With thoughtful lyrics and a bopping rhythm, it is no wonder that this 4-piece band is so highly respected. However, not all of their songs contribute to the party vibe. For example, tracks like “Stranger” require a lighter (or maybe a cell phone). The combination of Could’ve Been Kings’ electric stage presence and second studio album, Through The Darkness, has landed them into the finals of Gorilla Music’s Battle of the Bands. The showdown will take place on February 22, 2015.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend Could’ve Been Kings and Philabundance’s food-drive rock show this past Sunday, do not fret! Could’ve Been Kings has a whole slew of shows planned for the near future. In addition to December 11th’s free show with Chairman Dances at Victory Beer Hall, Could’ve Been Kings will be rockin’ it out December 20th at The Legendary Dobbs Christmas Bash/ Blakeslee CD release party. If you still can’t make those, Could’ve Been Kings will also be playing Connie’s Ric Rac on December 13th with Night Windows, Sonnder, Sweet Eureka, End of an Era, Birmingham Six, and Jo Stones.
Tune in all this week to hear Could’ve Been Kings in heavy rotation. Don’t forget, you can catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET). If you like what you hear, please use the thumbs up/down buttons to share your opinion. Check out the below links for more info
