Six years since the release of King King & The Shrines last album, ‘What Is!?’ (Vice Records), ‘Idle No More’ will be released September 3rd on Merge Records. It is an album full of sweat-drenched, ass shaking, groovy, psyched-out numbers, complete with rip roaring horn lines, southern fried guitar riffs and lysergic melodies.

Imagine Roky Erickson backed by the Sun Ra Arkestra or Wilson Pickett and The Velvet Underground, or picture the love child of Anubis and Kali. King Khan & The Shrines is more than a psychedelic soul band with a spectacle of a stage show. They are a cult musical phenomenon and simply one of the most entertaining groups the world has seen and heard since the days of Ike + Tina.


King Khan & The Shrines have sold out clubs all across North America, Europe and Australia, gracing the stages of some of the finest festivals out there and leaving behind a colorful spell of amazement and wonder.
