Chicago's "Kings of Awesome" are back with their sophomore LP bearing that exact title, and we have a special treat for you today, with a track premiere for their risque and downright "RANDY" track "I'm Going Down." If you've been hovering around the good times in Chicago for the past 10 years you'll no doubt have some bruises on your heart from The Yolks amazing live shows, where they seamlessly interplay brooding early 60s doo-wop style melodies with party-soaked mid 60s frat rock to no end.
As any fan of theirs knows, they went dormant for a short period when Nathan joined the Sleepovers and Spencer formed Spike & the Sweet Spots, but rest assured, they've gathered their guts and thrust forward another crucial party platter that your summer will be a real bummer without. And on top of all the news of the new LP, the Yolks are also headed out on tour, so don't miss them in your neck of the woods and grab a copy of KIngs of Awesome right HERE from Randy Rex, and DON'T MISS them next month at the VoT Chicago Record Label Showcase + RECORD FAIR at Volcano Room on August 22nd!
