To Kill a King are a British band who play a style of pop rock with great lyrics. Cannibals With Cutlery is their debut album. At times the songs are epic and bombastic, like on “Cold Skin” and the single “Rays”, while other songs are soft and folky such as the title track and “Children Who Start Fires”. To Kill a King is currently on tour with Bastille and while fans of that band will also like this band, To Kill a King’s music is much less pop, and takes a lyrical approach more similar to Frightened Rabbit or The National.
