At War with Kingswood

Well, here is some exciting news. Following a chat with the triple j crew, Melbourne rockers Kingswood will be hitting the road next month for an extensive run of shows in support of their debut album, Microscopic Wars. The album was recorded in Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with Vance Powell, known for his fine work at Jack Black’s Third Man Studios. In their chat with the j gang, Fergus Linacre and Alex Laska from the band told The Doctor the album features the debut lead vocal appearance of Alex: “There are two interesting things on this track. We have a Moog Synthesiser – the Little Fatty – all over the record, and people will be like ‘WHAT?’ but, like, deal with it. And, here’s the biggest one: I’m not singing on it. It’s Alex – he’s always sung for Kingswood, but usually he does harmonies. He has a deep brooding voice. I can’t get down that low. We’re trying to bring sexy back to rock and roll.” The track in question is ‘I Can Feel That You Don’t Love Me’, so check it out if you haven’t already. The Karova, Ballarat – October 17; Torquay Hotel, Torquay – October 18; and The Loft, Warrnambool – October 23. Microscopic Wars is due for release August 22.
