I Was A King

Norway’s I Was A King are in town this weekend. They’ll play Saturday, May 30th at Mercury Lounge, with the Rural Alberta Advantage and Elevator Fight, and Sunday, May 31st at Union Hall, with The Wowz. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show, as well as tickets for Union Hall, are still on sale.

Before both of those shows, I Was A King will play a free in-store on Saturday, May 30th (4pm) at Permanent Records in Greenpoint (181 Franklin St).

The band’s self-titled debut LP is out now on Control Group Records. The disc is streaming now on the label’s site; or check out “Norman Bleik” from that record, above.

I Was A King also recently added dates to its May/June US tour, which includes West Coast dates with Crystal Antlers and Constantines (Constantines are playing the Central Park Summerstage on June 30th, too.)
