This duo mixes a punk attitude with a slab of your favorite smoky sauce to create fun, carefree garage rock. Though the band burst onto the scene with their wild self-titled debut in 2004, they'd been relatively quiet as of late. Last month, they released "Bad News Boys," their first record since 2009's "Invisible Girl."

The King Khan & BBQ Show Share New Track "Illuminations"
"Bad News Boys" Out February 24th
On In The Red Records
US Tour Starts This March
The pioneering rock 'n roll legend that is The King Khan & BBQ Show share a brand new track "Illuminations" from their forthcoming release, Bad News Boys out February 24th on In The Red Records. This release marks their first full-length album in more than five years.
Bad News Boys is riddled with 13 hits that will take you on a journey through the steamy annals of rock 'n roll history and have you gasping for air by the end. "Let the fumes consume you," says the little turbaned man that you will hallucinate is sitting on your shoulder as his eyes spin in circles unlocking your every mystery.
The King Khan & BBQ Show's formula of mixing timeless classic rock 'n roll melodies and harmonies with pure butt shaking savagery has hit the nail right on its head once again. Get lost in the romantic ballads about love and loss. Get pummelled in the gut with their return to classic floor punching hardcore. Get all loosely goosey with their true R&B Gospel salvation/salavation and feel the Holy Spirit deflower your holiness. Get crushed by the crunchiness in their celebration of crunch. Just get! Got it? Good!
"I have had several dreams involving a young Chuck Berry showing us a frozen t-bone steak and telling us how we could thaw it with our own urine! If that isn't a sign that he has handed Mark and I the keys to the kingdom than what is?!" - King Khan
"When I wake up, I always remember the same dream. It's a dream of me waking up and saying 'when i wake up, i always remember the same dream'. God, I want some chocolate." - Mark Sultan (BBQ)
2014 saw Sultan write a 'love note' to Khan in his own bile and blood. Khan crafted a portrait of Sultan during that same time, using pints of unused semen and various fingernail clippings. Sadly both art pieces were destroyed by the recent flooding in Serbia, where they were being exhibited and housed along with other works from the past 10 or so years, like the rare 16mm master print of their fabled 2009 art-house masterpiece, 'Shaved Anus'.
Fans who couldn't make the trip to the Balkans to see their oft-lauded heroes lick tears from the faces of dwarves dressed-up like hot dogs (their performance piece 'Raus! Raus! Reetz!'), were finally rewarded for their patience when the band stepped out of its musical hiatus to record this bone chilling masterpiece of modern rock n roll.
Rumors of the band being sued by a doner restaurant were true. The jury was locked in debate for weeks and finally voted in favor of our dynamic duo of doo-wop. Rumors of King Khan & BBQ just fucking with people for fun are unsubstantiated.
"I knew we would win, it's good to know that justice can still stand for handsomeness and perversion. Fuck the police!" - Steve Shakespeare, Lawyer of King Khan & BBQ

with Milk Lines:
Milk lines' jangly lo-fi pop and country laced tunes are the result of another project started by Jeff Clarke (Also the originator of Demon's Claws, and Hellshovel) Most of the time Milk Lines keep an organic unaffected sound and in turn sound charmingly sloppy and childlike but they've created a primitive yet dreamlike bridge from somewhere in between Dead Moon and Syd Barrett. They will release their debut album "Ceramic" in 2015 on LA based record label "In The Red".
