KERRY KING UNVEILS LOGO FOR NEW BAND
After years of talking about, Kerry King's new band is finally coming to fruition! King's new band – seemingly titled Kerry King – has just announced their first-ever show at Welcome To Rockville 2024, though that's not all. King's new band has unveiled their logo, which was shared by King drummer (and former Slayer drummer) Paul Bostaph.
King had previously spoken about Bostaph being in his solo band, but now we know it's actually happening for real. King and Bostaph worked together in Slayer for most of the years between 1992 and 2001, and then again between 2013 and the end of Slayer in 2019. King's band is also rumored to have Slayer (and Exodus) guitarist Gary Holt in the fold, as well as Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo, though neither one has ever been confirmed.
In a 2022 interview, King said about the project "You know me, so you know what it's going to sound like. I played this new song for a buddy, and I said to him, 'If there's anything I've written in the last few years that sounds like Slayer, it's this.' And he said, 'That sounds like you could have pulled it off of any Slayer record.' I actually made that riff up backstage at a Slayer show. We were walking to the stage and I got my phone out and recorded it so I wouldn't forget it."
