The Duke & The King: Free instore show to kick off UK tour

| On 14, Oct 2010

Little over a year after releasing their debut album “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, The Duke & The King, the band lead by Simone Felice and Bobbie Bird Burke, have released their second album “Long Live The Duke & The King” on Loose Music/ Silva Oak.
Entirely self-produced, Long Live The Duke & The King was recorded in the bands own studio/shack deep in their home woods of Bearsville, New York, just across the creek from the grave of Bob Dylan’s notorious manager Albert Grossman. Exalting in their ongoing love affair with rock, folk, soul and psychedelia, The Duke & The King have officially knighted two irreplaceable members to the cast, Nowell “The Deacon” Haskins (of Parliament-Funkadelic liniage), and The Sensational Simi Stone, both of whom contribute golden vocals throughout this stunning collection of songs. To crystallise the vision, the band turned to the legendary mastering engineer Bob Ludwig, renowned for his work with iconic artists such as Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, Jimi Hendrix and The Band.
