King King release their first new song in three years on Friday 28th February, when the brand new single ‘I Will Not Fall’ is released.
Already A-listed on Planet Rock, ‘I Will Not Fall’ will be first release on King King’s own independent label, Channel 9 Music. It wil be available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Deezer and Apple Music.
In another first, ‘I Will Not Fall’ finds all four members of the new band line-up – Alan Nimmo (Guitar, lead vocals), Greenshields (bass), Jonny Dyke (Keyboards) and Andrew Scott (Drums) – as co-writers of the song. Plus, replacing former drummer Wayne Proctor in the production seats are Nimmo, Dyke and Liam McCluskey, having undertaken recording at Morsecode Studios in Glasgow,
‘I Will Not Fall’ is said to be about being surrounded by people who want to keep you down and take from you to gain for themselves said the band. It’s about having strength, courage and power to take the hits and keep going, no matter what is thrown at you. More importantly, it’s also about having a belief in yourself and the confidence to say, “I won’t be broken!”
Alan Nimmo spoke out about the many decisions that have taken place and their effects on both him personal and the band at large:
“I reached a stage where I felt that I wanted to regain control of my life, career and future,” he revealed. “I made a number of changes within the band and people surrounding the band. That was a lot of changes at one time. It was a daunting feeling, but they were important decisions that had to be made.
“Making these kind of decisions leaves you feeling slightly worried about whether or not you’re doing what’s right and what’s best for, not only myself personally, but also what is in the best interest for King King. I decided to try and be more proactive.
“One of the first things I did was start up my own record label and surround myself with the right people who can take King King to the next level. It’s refreshing to have people at our side who have a genuine belief in the band and what we’re capable of achieving.”

“When these changes were all put into motion, I immediately felt energised and I had a sense of freedom that I hadn’t felt for a long time,” Nimmo continued.
“When we got to work on the new album and decided what song we wanted to release as the first single, we wanted to give our fans a great representation of how the new material was sounding and to let them hear that no matter what.
“When you listen to ‘I Will Not Fall’, you know it’s King King. When we heard that our first single was to be A listed by Planet Rock I felt vindicated. I felt that all the decisions that were made seemed to be the right ones. Words can’t describe how much I appreciate our fans for having faith in me and for staying so loyal to us with their endless patience! We’re happy and we can’t wait to get out there and do what we love.”
The single dovetails King King’s April 2020 UK tour with special guest Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin’ Stones – You can find more about that at RAMzine by clicking here.
