A lot of people have been eager to get something new since their last release of Nightmare had been all over the radio and their huge tour that took them all over the world headlining tours and festivals in and out of America including headlining the Rockstar Uproar Tour twice, adding new tunes to their already impressive repertoire of such hits as “Unholy Confessions”, “Beast and the Harlot”, and “Bat Country” just to name a small few. This new album Hail to the King has promised to be something of a different animal, but is certainly a force that I think is only going to push A7X (their common shorthand) even higher than before.

Kings & Thieves, Geoff’s second ever solo album and first in some ten years is finally out.
