Here it is! The new PULL OUT KINGS website! NNNOICE!
2012 is already off to a fucking awesome start, and it just seems to keep getting better!
If you didn't already know, we released our debut JUST THE TIP last month - GO GET IT! iTunes + Bandcamp
And we're balls deep in tracks for upcoming singles/remix EPs/albums etc. We aren't positive exactly how it's gonna play out yet, but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we get it figured.
Aaaannnd we've already completed one sick remix this year and more are in the works. So keep your eyes/ears/genitals wide open for frequent updates and new music. STOKED.
Shows and DJ events also coming just as soon as we can get it worked out. We'll be bringing the insanity to a filthy clubnight somewhere near you in the near future.
Lastly, we'll have a merch store up in the next month or so, with t-shirts, stickers, CDs, pins, patches…and whatever other crazy shit we can slap our dirty mitts on.
Anyway, we're EXCITED about 2012 and can't wait to get ALL UP IN IT. Hope you'll stick with us to see what kind of awesome/insane shit unfolds.
PULL OUT KINGS started in 2007 as a series of late-nite jam sessions featuring Z.Marr of COMBICHRIST, and Zach Solem and Ben Thomas of SLOWEARTH.
In search of a "ridiculous diversion" from their "extra serious" music, these sessions found Z., Zach, Ben, and whoever happened to be at their studio that night getting chemically enhanced and tweaking knobs until the sun came up. The resulting bass and beat driven tracks showed potential, but were put aside for future use, and in typical producer-workaholic fashion, forgotten about.
Two years later, Z. and Z. revisited the sessions following a long night in the studio, and discovered the foundation for a whole new project. A moment of female inspiration yielded an instantly memorable name (thanks Tara!), and soon after things started moving a lot more quickly.
Having composed the initial group of demos, Z. and Z. felt they needed a little extra flavor to level-up the tracks and recruited local lunatic MC Penivek Arcade (CRASH LAB ENTERTAINMENT) for his spit and swagger.
The group released their debut EP JUST THE TIP on January 24th 2012 on their own GZK imprint and are in the process of preparing tracks for a series of upcoming singles to be released through out the remainder of 2012.
POK has remixed tracks by diverse artists including IAMX ("Great Shipwreck of Life"), SKOLD ("Tonight"), COMBICHRIST ("Scarred"), AESTHETIC PERFECTION ("Devil's in the Details"), IMPERATIVE REACTION ("Surface"), and many others. Z. and Z. are constantly looking for new ways of weaving their particular brand of electro into their peers' music, regardless of preconceived genre bias.
The future is a BRIGHT, SHINING, LOUD and FUN thing, and POK aims to make the beautiful music and FUCK THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
