aKING are back with a new single. The Runaround is the first track to be released off the upcoming aKING album, Red Blooded Years (which is scheduled for release on the 1st of March 2011). aKING are definately one of the hottest South African rock acts around (in my opinion).
I’ve seen them live at least 7 times over the least 2-3 years. I saw them live a few weeks ago at the Pre Jool Party at Trademarx (near Loftus Versfeld) in Pretoria. aKING seem to be getting better and better at playing live gigs each time I see them perform.
If you do not own their albums, you should definitely make a point of buying them. They are one of the must-listen-to South African bands. I’m really looking forward to their new album.
This the music video for The Runaround (which is directed by Louis Minnaar of Bittereinder fame):
