Indiana’s Stoner Doom and Roll practitioners VOID KING found their full iteration when Chris Carroll joined drummer Derek Felix, guitar player Tommy Miller and vocalist Jason Kindred in late 2015. VOID KING released their debut album “THERE IS NOTHING”, recorded with legendary Indianapolis Musician and producer, Carl Byers, in the summer of 2016. The record showcased the bands penchant for fuzzed
out, riff laden epics and a love of showing something different from song to song.
The band was approached by the Dutch label, OFF THE RECORD later that year, and quickly released a vinyl, cassette tape and CD of the band’s efforts. Reviews of THERE IS NOTHING were full of praise for the band’s ability to keep their sound, while adding different elements of song writing throughout the entire record. The band followed this signing up with several DIY tours and bookings all over the United States for the remainder of 2016 and most of 2017.
In 2017, VOID KING toured Europe with their label mates BOUDAIN. The band received much adulation as they spread their brand of stoner rock to Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and more.
In 2018, VOID KING was asked to headline one of the stages at the SXSW festival “Stoner Jam” in Austin, Texas, played the Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, invited to headline a stage at the second annual “New England Stoner and Doom Festival”, as well as countless other festivals, shows and events.
Calling on the ghosts of Jim Jones, Marshall Applewhite and Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, VOID KING prides themselves on bringing a show to the crowd full of fog, bright lights, and copious amounts of volume.
Because of this, VOID KING has been fortunate to share the stage and tours with the likes of CROWBAR, MOTHERSHIP, BLACK COBRA, KARMA TO BURN, JUCIFER, CASTLE, and more.
VOID KING is currently booking its first west coast tour, and putting the finishing touches on the songs for their sophomore album.
