Managing to cross-breed the speed and aggression of classic NYHC, the raw melodicism and anthemic hooks of Street-Punk and occasional moments of Metallic muscle within their riffage, KINGS NEVER DIE are showcasing their skills on the newest in your face EP, out today on Fast Break! Records!
Featuring Danny Schuler (Biohazard), Dan Nastasi (Dog Eat Dog, Mucky Pup, Leeway NY) and Larry “The Hunter” (Murphys Law, Sheer Terror), KINGS NEVER DIE are scene veterans with lengthy resumes.
The new EP marks the band’s sophomore offering, with 2020’s debut EP, Raise A Glass being released just before the pandemic hit, scrapping any plans to promote the release with live shows or appearances.
The EP oepener “Rally” embodied the “PMA” ethos that has sustained the band. In a statement about the single they relayed “We all have choices on how we deal with adversity and the shitty hands we are sometimes dealt. That adversity also breeds the opportunity to rally ourselves, to rally as a community and overcome.”
Musically the band manages to cross-breed the speed and aggression of classic NYHC, the raw melodicism and anthemic hooks of Street-Punk and occasional moments of Metallic muscle within their riffage.
Kings Never Die is composed of vocalist Dylan Gadino (vocalist), Dan Nastasi (guitars/vocals), Danny Schuler (drums), Larry “The Hunter” Nieroda (guitar) and Jason Kalfin (bass).
Scene veterans with lengthy resumes, many people will recognize Nastasi for his previous work in early All Boro Kings LP’ era Dog Eat Dog and original Mucky Pup, Schuler obviously from his work drumming in Biohazard and Nieroda for his tenure in Murphy’s Law.
