Suicide King is the third studio album by American heavy metal band King 810. Released on 25 January 2019, the work was published independently by the ensemble and produced by Josh Schroeder and David Gunn in Michigan.[1]

Background[edit]

In 2017-2018, drummer Andrew Workman, guitarist Andrew Beal and the band parted ways.[2] In October 2018, the group released a music video for "Heartbeats", the first single off of the album.[1]

Touring[edit]

In November 2018, the ensemble performed at the Buick City Events Center. Following this performance, the quartet spent November and December in the United Kingdom with PUPPY.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Neil Criddle of Deadpress stated that "Heartbeats" "sets things off perfectly, with a frenetically aggressive chorus with Gunn‘s lyrical pace intensifying, culminating in a real sense of urgency and vitality".[3]

Stephen Hill of Louder Sound stated that "album closer Sing Me To Sleep has a dreamy, robotic nightmare vibe, Wade In The Water addresses the Flint, Michigan water crisis using old blues and Tom Waits-esque dark crooning and album highlight Black Rifle is a piano-led ballad with a funeral stomp that recalls the gravel-voiced acoustic hip hop of Everlast".[4]
