Alvarez Kings
Alvarez Kings story starts from their humble roots in South Yorkshire.
Rising to popularity quickly the band would go on to sell out hometown shows, selling out of their first two releases and culminating in their single No Resolve being named Single of The Year by BBC Radio as well as coveting local awards including Best Band and Best EP.

With a foot hold in their native county, ambitions were set further afield in the UK which resulted in festival slots at Isle of Wight and O2 Wireless and sold out shows in many of London's famous venues including KOKO and The 100 Club to name a few.

Naturally, Alvarez Kings spread their music across the shores with successful tours of Europe – one supporting Echosmith - a three week tour of Canada and industry showcases at SXSW and CMJ in Texas and New York. This presented the band the opportunity to play a mammoth 40 date tour in the US - the infamous Vans Warped Tour - taking in 26 States and garnering them rave nationwide press reviews and a firm, dedicated fanbase. In fact Kevin Lyman - the festival owner - was so impressed with the band he invited them to perform Warped UK at the world famous Alexandra Palace in London and again playing the whole US tour again in 2015.

Alvarez Kings became reality TV stars when Fuse TV filmed the band's adventures on Vans Warped Tour for Season 2 of the hit TV show Warped Roadies.

2015 has become the year that all the bands hard work and dedication finally paid off. They signed a major record deal with Warner Bros / Sire Records. Their debut release on the label was the EP Fear To Feel which marked a change in direction from the bands typical indie-rock sound. The sound has become bigger, introducing new timbres such as string, brass synths alongside House-style production while maintaining Pop sensibilities at its core.

With more tours to announce in the near future and singles to be released over the coming months the future looks ever brighter for brothers Simon and Paul Thompson, Richard Walker and Sean Parkin.

From lush synth driven atmospheres to aggressive rock and roll. This band’s versatility and energy demands the attention of even the most passive concertgoer. “The American Indie” is founded upon the struggle to capture people’s hearts in a fast paced society and their mission is to explore self-identity through music. They without a doubt alive and ready to share the sonic thrill that propels them through life.
