Energetic, dynamic and refreshingly unique, King Porter Stomp showcase an infectious blend of afro funk horn lines, dub reggae rhythms, harmonious hooks and conscious rhymes. Their all-encompassing live show connects with every audience and their diverse musical style is unlike any you will have heard before; ‘hard to pigeonhole, easy to recommend’ (iTunes review).
Their 8 year journey has taken them from their home town of Brighton to perform at many major venues and festivals across Europe. With 2 critically acclaimed albums, a nomination for ‘Best Group’ in the Songlines World Music Awards, a writing and performance commission from Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and a host of collaborative works, King Porter Stomp are at the absolute top of their game as they release the much anticipated new album Way Back.
Continuing their successful union with the legendary producer Prince Fatty, Way Back is an album that hits hard and displays the confidence of a band that truly feel comfortable in their own skin. With four years in the making, Way Back has a satisfying mix of road-tested tracks from recent live shows and fresh new offerings direct from the studio. Every tune draws upon the array of roots genres that have come to embody the bands sound. King Porter Stomp have reached a veritable event horizon with Way Back and it is a shining addition to the band’s discography.
So with great universal appeal, a brand new album and an array of accomplished new tracks, King Porter Stomp are taking their vibrant and energetic live show on the road this Spring with a UK venue tour. These inspiring and passionate players have an all encompassing performance that leaves audiences entertained, enlivened and enlightened!
Energising, a blast!
