As an up and coming hard rock band climbing out of ‘Charm City’ (Baltimore, Maryland), King Belvedere launched their mission of rock, roll, and repeat while defining their own sound. King Belvedere has quickly established themselves as one of Baltimore’s premier rock acts. Gigging in and around the northeast region, King Belvedere rocks the same local scene that launched Baltimore’s rock elite - 'Kix, Child’s Play and Charm City Devils'. Setting out to mirror the successes of these local heroes, King Belvedere released two ‘DIY’ independent projects, ’Ain’t Got No Shame’ in 2007 and the follow up “My Kinda Rock and Roll’ in 2011.
The King Belvedere moniker came about in 2004 while consuming alcohol of the same name. Five amazing musicians came together from different states in the Northeast corridor, all with different and unique style. Playing riff-driven, retro-power rock, King Belvedere has morphed into a dynamic monster on-the-scene today. The new music is speaker shredding, and a fist-pumping rocker’s delight reinvented for today’s music fans, and presented in a balls-to-the-wall style that will remind you of why you love music in the first place. This is a band that comes along once in a great while, a band that shakes the foundations of the music scene, a band that proves once again that no matter where you come from, a great band is just that. Baltimore is a city that has the capacity to meld you into something great – if you survive the process. Initial feedback on the bands live performance says “The band has solid stage presence and displays a lot of energy to get the crowd pumped!” and “This band could go places. It looks like they are doing all the right things; they were spot on and rocked.”
King Belvedere recently signed a recording deal with the independent record label, Jamsync Music, for their next release; coming 2012/2013. Hard, Driving, Fast and Loose is what best describes this band. King Belvedere, as solid a rock band as you can get.
The new release is currently being recorded at ‘Audio Production Factory’ in Baltimore and is far more superior to any of its predecessors. Now running at full stride as a band, King Belvedere has polished their craft and is yielding some of their best song writing to date. The new release will contain 10 tracks of high powered, screaming rock and roll filled with extreme energy that grips your soul and refuses to let go. ’Back Again’ a ballad style track from the new project is being released in advance for a charity organization for Cystic Fibrosis.
King Belvedere is poised to jump to the next level and has enlisted III Entertainment as management to help them get there. Completing their next opus is only the beginning for the band with plans that include touring, videos, press, charitable work, Europe and more. If you’ve never heard of King Belvedere, then put on your seat belt and prepare for the ride…
