The King is dead, long live the King

Lovely people
Dear fans

Like so many other bands and artists, the pandemic was gut-wrenching for us. We released our last record Earthquaker in November 2019 and merely played a handful of live shows since then. Being forced to stop doing what you love most, takes its toll. Certainly for us, as we adore the stage and the interaction with our fans.

During this pandemic, we co-organized Hellgium, recorded and released two studio sessions and played a livestream show. But there’s one thing we didn’t do, and that’s write new music. We simply didn’t have the energy, hunger or motivation to do so.

It forced us to do some soul searching. Each of us are working on new projects and we quickly realized that we were putting King Hiss on the back burner. And that’s not the place for the band we love with all our hearts.

As we are celebrating our 10th year anniversary, we decided to put King Hiss on an indefinite hiatus as of October 2023. Trust us if we say that this was not an easy decision, but it’s one that we made in good conscience and in a friendly atmosphere.

There’s a couple of very cool shows in the making and we are beyond psyched to get the ball rolling one last time. One last hurrah! We’re aching to see, feel and smell you all next year.

To celebrate our anniversary, we thought it would be a great time to re-master our breakthrough EP ‘Snakeskin’ and release it on vinyl with the help of FX7 Records. You can buy your copy right here.

Please be sure to check our tourschedule and come say hi at one of our last shows!

Jan, Joost, Dominiek and Jason
