Kingswood Share Details of New Album

Melbourne rockers Kingswood have today revealed the details of their second album, After Hours, Close To Dawn, the follow-up to their 2014 debut Microscopic Wars.

Recorded at the iconic Sound Emporium studio in Nashville, After Hours, Close To Dawn is set to be released on March 3rd and will the band's first recorded material since amicably parting ways with bassist Jeremy 'Mango' Hunter in May.

While lead single, "Creepin'" offers a suggestion the band have headed towards darker terrain, frontman Fergus Linacre explains that the new record further expands their genre-blending rock sound. "There's no direction we can’t take now," Linacre says, with guitarist Alex Laska adding that "Any perspective on what we should sound like has been thrown out the window."

Following the release, Kingswood will head out on an extensive national tour. Full run of dates and album artwork below.
