The King by Kill Your Boyfriend











Kill Your Boyfriend, from Treviso, Italy, will release their fourth album, Voodoo, on October 14th, 2022 via Sister 9 Recordings (Europe), Little Cloud Records (North America) and Shyrec (Italy). The new record opens with the amazing new song and visual The King, on which the band thrives as they maximize the tangible qualities they have gotten from their influences. It's an incredibly exciting song that shows the band growing while holding fast to their dark traditions.

On The King the band have to say: "The video for The King takes cue from the words of Michael Ventura that inspired Voodoo's A site: '...let themselves be possessed not by any god they could name but by the spirit they felt in the music...'. We decided to stage some kind of final act of a show, where the actors are left alone at the centre of a crumbling stage and are possessed by a spirit guiding them frantically towards an inescapable ending. The frantic dance is a clear reference to The King or Rock & Roll and the Voodoo symbols represent the connection between the earthly and the spiritual world."
