Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Rockers aKING will release The Red Blooded Years Special
Edition album in August this year. The
time has come for a re-print and this album will be released by aKING’s new
distributor, Electromode. The Special
Edition boasts two new tracks, a re-mix of All in the Wind by Johnny de Ridder,
all the music videos from The Red Blooded Years and new album artwork. The two
new tracks are called Wild Child and Jezebel.
“Wild Child is a song about the premature demise of a renegade youth due
to his/her invincible approach to living.
It documents how he/she carelessly gambles with life and loved
ones. Jezebel is a breakup song about
love turning sour after both parties invested so much,” says front man Laudo
Liebenberg. The new songs were produced by aKING and recorded by Jurgen von
Wechmar at Sunset Studios, outside Stellenbosch. Fans can expect the raw Rock
‘n Roll edge heard on Dutch Courage combined with the three-part vocal treatment
that created the sound of The Red Blooded Years. The band says that they are
“eager to get back to their energetic rock roots but at the same time
experiment with different production techniques.” These songs are a taste of
what's to come from aKING when they release their fourth album next year.
