King Dude
King Dude
In a time when American folk music has lost touch with its bloody roots, King Dude seeks to illuminate
the darkness with sex, death, love, insanity, and Lucifer’s light. Since 2006, his devotional rock ‘n’ roll has
been both the medium and the message; his throaty baritone and devilishly visceral songwriting the tools
he wields to ignite the fiery spirit of revelation in all who encounter him.
Thanks to past releases on Dais, Avant!, Bathetic, Clan Destine, and Ván records, a number of
high-profile festival appearances, and a relentless tour schedule—often alongside the likes of Ghost and
Earth—the silver-tongued singer/songwriter has found an ever-expanding global audience with whom to
share his prophetic vision of hope and salvation: a willing congregation whose raised voices and
stomping feet reliably turn his shows into Luciferian tent revivals.
King Dude is a blue-eyed Mephistopheles with an acoustic guitar; he dresses like Johnny Cash and sings
like he cut in line in front of Robert Johnson at the crossroads. His voice can shift from haunting and
vulnerable to thunderous near-Biblical fury in the space of a breath, marrying the sacred to the profane
with pomp, circumstance, and a curled lip. He sings about death the way he sings about fucking. With
inspiration torn from country, blues, Americana, and British folk (and a background in heavy metal), King
Dude’s raw, hypnotic hymns channel the past while staring straight ahead into a revelatory future.
