“The Dropout Kings’ sound amalgamates heavy metal with elements of hip-hop and alt rock… at this moment in time they pump out kick-ass music full of sonic flamboyance hard to resist.” – Tattoo.com

“It combines a harder-than-most rap-rock vibe unlike other artists in this division of rock…The album’s strength grows the tracks progress, taking on more of a metal tone to balance with the hard-hitting rap lyrics and harsh vocals that characterize the hard rock genre.”- Shockwave Magazine

The DROPOUT KINGS about the tour:

“Everyone in Dropout Kings is super excited for the fire and fury tour. This is absolutely the biggest tour any of us have ever done, and we’re absolutely honored to hit the road with OTEP. We’re just loving every moment right now and we’re just cherishing these times. Can’t say enough how appreciative we are of our team at Napalm Records, our management, and everyone on the team behind the scenes as well. Without those people, and the beautiful people that listen to us and give us the time of day, NONE of this would be possible without you. I’ve always hoped this moment would come. Never thought it actually would. I want this to be a testament to you can make anything happen if you have the timing, planning, perseverance, dedication, and most importantly a belief in yourself. Take that leap of faith. It’s scary but I promise the most beautiful things will happen for you in your life. Anyway, we’re all stoked about this, you’re all cool as fuck, let’s hang out when we get to your city!”
