TO KILL A KING JOIN XMR/XFM KNEES UP!
Rising stars To Kill A King join Chris T-T and The Hoodrats for the Xtra Mile Recordings and XFM Xposure Xmas gig taking place on 15th December 2013 at the London Barfly venue.
Curated by XFM Xposure’s very own John Kennedy - who has tirelessly supported the label’s output for all ten years it’s been around - has cherry picked his favourite acts currently on the label whose music he’s championed all year. The night promises to be a true celebration of independent British music and one that showcases the depth of talent within the Xtra Mile stable.
Doors are at 7pm
To Kill A King have just released their album ‘Cannibals With Cutlery’ featuring 4 bonus tracks which entered the Top 20 in the Record Store Charts. Following a huge headline tour of their own as well as a support slot on the recent Bastille tour – their fervent fanbase is growing daily. Their single ‘Rays’ has been championed by XFM as well as Geoff Lloyd at Absolute and you can see the rather gory video here:
Chris T-T has just released his phenomenal ninth album ‘The Bear’ receiving unanimous praise across the board. His single by the same name is currently enjoying plays on XFM’s Evening playlist as well as 6Music by Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe, & Marc Riley; Radio 1 by Huw Stephens and Phil & Alice and Amazing Radio playlist.

Both tracks were released on the first split 7” as part of the Xtra Mile Single Sessions the Tenth Anniversary Edition. It was the first of 4 vinyl released every Monday in October as part of our tenth anniversary celebrations. Throughout the year we’ve been up to all sorts; a take-over at 2000trees Festival, a SXSW showcase, promotions with Amazon and iTunes to offer discounts on our back catalogue and of course we re-issued our first ever releases by Million Dead and Reuben – to mark how it all began a decade ago. We also just celebrated in style with a raucous 10th birthday party with incredible sets from Chris T-T, Ben Marwood and Algiers, a presentation of gold and silver discs for Frank Turner’s England Keep My Bones and Love Ire & Song respectively and an enormous cake!
Tune into John Kennedy’s XFM Xposure Monday – Thursday from 10pm. 104.9FM
