Northern Territory and Queensland rock outfit King Stingray are storming out the gates this Tuesday morning, releasing a highway groove ‘Let’s Go’ while announcing their debut album of the same name.
The new track sees the Stingers craft a catchy guitar-driven soundscape with attitude-filled vocals perched on top. The hook harkens back to golden-age rock ‘n’ roll as the as frontman Yirrŋa Yunupiŋu sings about the open road and the freedom it entails.
The music video for the single echoes the sentiment of the sonics, the band shown to be performing the new tune while we simultaneously we get a first-person look into their life on the road, and more specifically, the Central Arnhem Highway, with guitarist Roy Kellaway explaining, “Whether it’s packing up the troopy with dusty, half broken band equipment and driving 12 hrs to Darwin for a gig, or just going bush to enjoy the great outdoors with our loved ones and friends.”
Along with the new single, the band have also today announced their debut album of the same name, which is set to land on August 5th. Comprised of ten tracks included already-established favourites ‘Get Me Out’, ‘Camp Dog’ and more, the record is set to be the group’s first proper foray into the album world, and no doubt plenty more are well on the way.
