KAMIKAZE KINGS: Let’s get ready to rumble!!!
Those, who have seen a live show of the band before, know that KAMIKAZE KINGS are more than a hard working rock band. The songs, the performance and devotion with which the musicians go about at their stage performances, transports a sense of life, an attitude towards the most beautiful matter of the world: Rock ’n’ Roll.
In May, KAMIKAZE KINGS will rock at various occasions as support act of The New Black, V8Wankers and Crazy Lixx. Of course, they will also play at the album release shows of MERCURY TIDE on 17th May in Osnabrück and on 19th May in Oberhausen. For all events check out the tour dates!!!
