Almost Kings — “285”
This rap/rock band from Atlanta, Georgia, is one of my favorites, both musically and personally. They have been recording recently, for which I am very excited, but at the moment I’m listening to “Bang Loud” from the Club Rock EP (2011).
These are some of my favorite guys and they are celebrating nine years together. So check out “Hey Yo” by Almost Kings!
1. Almost Kings: “Closer” (Chainsmokers cover)
I love this! Although I could be biased… 😉
2. Type O Negative: “Hit Me Baby (One More Time)” [Britney Spears cover]
3. AFI: “Just Like Heaven” (The Cure cover)
Well…things are not great for me and haven’t been for a while. My two favorite local bands, Lynam and Almost Kings, are going through some changes.
In Lynam’s case, vocalist/guitarist Jacob Bunton has moved to LA and is working with Adler, as well as other artists. Drummer David Lynam and bassist Mark Dzier have formed a cover band called Danger City. I’m not sure what this means for Lynam, though I have my guesses.
Almost Kings, on the other hand, lost bassist Danny Helms months ago. The band announced a search for a new bass player. I know they had a guy filling in, but I don’t know if he was the permanent replacement. A couple of weeks ago, drummer Kevin Compton said he was leaving too. Sooo… 😦 They will continue; I just wonder what’s next. It will definitely be different.
I love Almost Kings so much! The first copy of Filthy Nice I ever got was given to me by drummer Kevin Compton. ❤
