Call Me King is a post-hardcore act based in Austin, TX. Since their founding in July of 2015, Call Me King has gathered over 11,000 followers across various outlets. Call Me King has been featured alongside national acts such as Asking Alexandria, Bless The Fall, Emery, and more. In January of 2016, after only six months of playing together as a group, Call Me King flew to Ohio to record their debut album …and the snow will turn to ash with founding father of progressive hardcore Craig Owens (Chiodos, D.R.U.G.S., Isles & Glaciers) as producer and Jordan DiSorbo of Before Their Eyes operating as sound engineer. atswtta was released October 7th, 2016 alongside Call Me King’s first tour through the Midwest to promote the album.
Call Me King didn’t take time to rest after that tour, instead of doubling down on regional shows to build on their already-established fan base. They began writing for their second LP, which is currently untitled, in January of 2017. They spent the month of August at Glass Arrow Audio in Toledo recording their second album with Jordan DiSorbo. Call Me King’s video for their single “Sycamore Lane” was released in September 2017 as an Alternative Press exclusive.
Immediately after returning from the studio, Call Me King was able to join one of their major influences, Emery, as they put on their Fan Appreciation Tour. This was a valuable experience for the band, who received incredibly positive feedback and are currently planning their next such tour.
Call Me King has recently partnered with the Inner Light Agency as management and is working toward the release of their second album, slotted for early Summer of 2018.
