Byron Bay, NSW
NEW RELEASE - 17.01.19 - ‘MILES AWAY’
Miles Away is the first title single to be released from the new King Coaster EP, which was recorded, mixed and mastered at Inky Studios in Byron with local producer Jordan Power.
The King Coaster boys had a great year in 2018, establishing themselves as one of Byrons most exciting new bands, with a swiftly growing fan base forming from Byron across Brisbane and The Sunshine Coast.
2019 looks set to be a big one for the band with a tour forming and some exciting sponsorship opportunities in the making.
Originally hailing from the Sunshine Coast, the King Coaster boys took to the Southern Highway in late 2017 on a quest for sovereignty and the promise of musical riches. Landing in Byron Bay, NSW, this royal trio are made up of brothers Lucas Dewar (Lead vocals/ Bass) and Jarryd Dewar (Drums) and joined by long term friend Robbie McAdam (Lead Guitar).
Their live sound is a interwoven play on the sounds of The Black Keys, Band of Skulls and Royal Blood, while their debut single ‘Don’t shut me down’ has brought out their penchant for smooth, warm, riff-driven melodies, with notable references to the guitar sounds of Mark Knopfler/ Dire Straits. It’s a refined and delectable taste to the musical palette.
The beginning of 2018 saw the three boys take to the studio for the recording of their debut single at Hothouse Studios in Melbourne’s St Kilda with producer/engineer Julian Schweitzer and then mixed/ mastered by Byron Bay’s Jordan Power at Inky Studios.
The band are currently set to release their follow up material to ‘Don’t shut me down’ with a Debut EP and new single ‘Miles Away’ due for release on 26.01.19, with a release show at Byron Bay’s The Northern.
Their live performances in Byron Bay, at venues including the infamous ‘Great Northern’ backroom and Byron Brewery, have been received enthusiastically by a sizeable local crowd, indicating the immediate appreciation felt for the bands music. Gigs to their hometown venues including Maroochydores ‘Solbar’ have been evidence of the bands ability to pack out and pull a notable performance punch. With the smooth, grunge rock style vocals from lead singer Lucas combined with the resonating, indie-infused guitar solos from Robbie and Jarryd’s solid rock ‘n’ roll drum beat, these boys have the makings of a classic indie/rock band that a Triple J audience would happily feast upon from a silver platter.
The carriage is rolling and the King Coaster boys are adorned and ready for the coming summer season of gigs and new releases, with a rousing selection of material and a tour of Australia forming for 2019.
Robes at the ready Ladies and Gentlemen, Lords and Ladies, Kings and Queens. The royal celebration will shortly commence.
