Alvarez Kings tour dates
Alvarez Kings popped up on the British indie rock scene in 2002. Since then, the four-man band from Sheffield in South Yorkshire has toured throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. They've also appeared on reality television and have been awarded a regional best band honour by the Sheffield Scenester Awards and the BBC's Single of the Year award for "No Resolve." Clearly, the future looks bright for Simon Thompson, Paul Thompson, Richard Walker and Sean Parkin.
Alvarez Kings beginnings
From a humble start as a band called Redshed, Alvarez Kings have steadily worked to build their audience both at home and overseas. After the BBC award, they began to garner more notice outside of their home region and pared their line-up down from five members to four.
Gradual breakthrough beyond North Yorkshire
Few people outside of North Yorkshire had heard of Alvarez Kings when they were picked as part of the line-up for the Warped Tour in 2013. That experience gave them exposure to North American audiences as well as the opportunity to work with top bands like The Strawberry Blondes and Mighty Mongo. They were asked to join the tour again in 2015, which eventually led to their first contract with a major record label.
Popular albums by Alvarez Kings
This quartet has been working regularly since the debut release of their single "The Sequel" in 2010, which sold out in just a few weeks. Their popular albums include Boundaries, released in 2005, and Patience is Strength, released in 2011. In 2015, the band signed with Warner Bros./Sire Records and released Fear to Feel, which has a bigger, fuller sound than their earlier acoustic albums. Their EP Cold Conscience was released in June 2016.
Alvarez Kings concerts
Alvarez Kings are famous for energetic live performances that engage the entire audience and get everyone up dancing from the very first song. They played the Isle of Wight tour early in their career before becoming a part of the Warped Tour line-up in both 2013 and 2015. The later Warped Tour was the subject of FUSE TV's reality show, "Warped Roadies," which garnering the group even more fans in the U.K. and in North America. Since then, they have toured on their own and with top performers such as Echosmith and Melanie Martinez. They've also performed at top London clubs like KOKO and the 100 Club and have appeared at popular music festivals like SXSW in Austin, Texas and CMJ in New York City. The group is likely to be on the road again soon to promote their growing discography. Make sure to confirm your concert plans as soon as they announce their tour dates, because Alvarez Kings tickets are becoming increasingly popular as the band widens their audience on both sides of the Atlantic.
