KING NUN have announced a huge UK headline tour for February 2020. The dates come in the wake of the band’s acclaimed debut album MASS, which was released through the iconic Dirty Hit earlier in October, and sees the Wandsworth quartet embrace darker sonic inspirations and cultish imagery for their first full length release.
The run of dates will see the band play their biggest headline shows to date around the UK. Pre-sale tickets are available on THURSDAY 24 OCTOBER with general sale on FRIDAY 25 OCTOBER, available through the band’s official website: http://www.kingnun.com/

From the title of the album itself – a multi-faceted reference to that coming-of-age as an almost cultish ceremony – to the warped melodies that drive tracks like LOW FLYING DANDELION and the heavenly sounding closer (and ode to long-forgotten German folk singer Sibylle Baier) A GIANT CAME DOWN, MASS refuses to remain in one sonic space. The result is a record which eschews conventional rock structures and sounds in favour of something more ambitious and boundary-pushing, whilst never losing sight of King Nun’s brilliance as a live guitar band.
A record centred around both personal exorcisms and more universal lived experiences, King Nun’s debut is a lofty accomplishment from a group no longer content to simply kick up the dirt at their feet.
