Melbourne rockers Palace Of The King are saying goodbye to the album cycle surrounding last year’s scorcher of a record, Get Right With You Maker, (released a year ago in April 2018 via Golden Robot Records) with a special LIVE version of the album’s title track recorded at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne.
Frontman Tim Henwood says of the song, “This live version of – Get Right With Your Maker, was recorded in a packed, hot, and sweaty Corner Hotel in Melbourne a few months back.
“Our album (of the same name) actually didn’t include this song other than a hidden acoustic track on the CD.
“We loved the track so much however, and the audience reaction to it in Europe on our last tour, that we felt it was important to record an electric version which was released at the end of 2018.
“As with most songs in the POTK live show, GRWYM grew and developed a life of it’s own at the live shows, so we wanted to share this with you before bringing you new music from our forthcoming album very soon.”
Palace Of The King supported the Get Right With Your Maker album with near constant touring throughout 2018, including a huge eight country European tour before heading back to Australia for sold out, separate tours with Baby Animals, Rose Tattoo and The Screaming Jets.
The guys are showing no signs of stopping with a mountain of tour dates coming up over the winter months.

Get Right With Your Maker sees POTK come of age. Recorded in multiple sessions around touring commitments, with life on the road having become part of the album’s DNA both lyrically and musically.
The polishing was done with mixing duties shared between Machine (Clutch/Crobot) at The Machine Shop in Texas and Liam Jenkins at Somedays Studios in NYC.
Formed in late 2012, Palace of the King, have become known for their bluesy, soul-infused, riff-heavy, psychedelic rock n roll.
Touring constantly, Palace of the King average 100 shows a year.
They’ve headlined three tours of Europe, spending 4 – 8 weeks on the road there every year since 2015.
They’ve supported Airbourne in the UK and France in front of thousands of rabid rock fans, played the USA twice in 2016 and 2017, headlined the Black Woodstock Festival in New Caledonia and circled Australia dozens of times in a tour van.
They tour more than any of their peers because even though they’re a fully-fledged new millennium rock band, they also believe in the old school work ethic of the old school rock bands.
