Building upon the success of their 2014 self-titled debut album and 2017 sophomore release ‘Scatterbrain‘, KXM returns with their third studio album, ‘Circle Of Dolls‘, which is scheduled for release on September 13, 2019.
KXM is comprised of Dug Pinnick of King’s X on vocals/bass, George Lynch of Lynch Mob/Dokken on guitars and Ray Luzier of Korn, on drums. ‘Circle Of Dolls‘ features 13 new tracks and was recorded at the Steakhouse Studio in North Hollywood California, where the band once again tapped Chris “The Wizard” Collier to engineer and co-produce the new effort.
Ray Luzier comments, “There’s a certain energy that happens in the studio very quickly when George, Dug and I get together and jam. This is our 3rd record and it was recorded with the same formula as the first two albums, no pre-written ideas, we just come up with totally fresh grooves & riffs and not over think anything. We definitely didn’t repeat ourselves, but you know for sure who it is when you hear it, all 3 records have their own unique character“. George Lynch adds, “It’s better than the first two albums. It’s insane, the magic is there, the chemistry’s there and we’re just sitting here patting ourselves on the back, telling each other what geniuses we are.” Says dUg Pinnick, “I hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it!”
From the infectious riff of the album opener ‘War of Words‘, to the album finale of ‘The Border‘, KXM have again created something truly special and musically diverse. Songs like ‘Lightning‘, ‘Big As The Sun‘, and ‘Cold Sweats‘ are sonically different from each other taking the listener on a musical journey. ‘Circle Of Dolls‘ is a darker record thematically than their first two albums and builds upon the established KXM rock sound with thought provoking lyrics, catchy guitar riffs and rock-solid grooves.
