So, I guess Flint, Michigan, is basically like Bartertown, only without all the order.
It’s a rough place to have to grow up, it seems, and there’s nothing funny about that.
Roadrunner Records has signed a band from Flint called King 810, and you can hear what they sound like at the end of this post.
In short, if something slightly resembling metal had rap-like lyrics, it would be King 810.
The band’s EP proem will be available online starting tomorrow, and a full-length is due out this summer.
From the Roadrunner press release: “With no mayor to preside over the bereft community and a minuscule police force, Flint, MI teaches its young to fend for themselves. proem is an embodiment of King 810′s life within this pressure cooker, a glimpse into the personal account of this disappearing metropolis where tree branches live longer than the children do.”
Something tells me this band’s going to very popular with the douche rock set.
Mark my words, folks. These dudes are going to be big and I’m not going to like it.
