King Khan has put out a lot of records over the years, with The Shrines, with BBQ, with Almighty Defenders and other iterations. He's never put out a record just under his own name until now. Murderburgers is King Khan's solo debut and will be out October 13 via his own label Khannibalism in partnership with Ernest Jenning Record Co. Greg Ashley produced the album and his old band The Gris Gris were pulled out of retirement to be Khan's backing band here. Says Khan:

We made this album in about one week, I got the Gris Gris to back me up and do a few shows in all the murder capitals of America. In Chicago we even had Andre Williams come and join us on stage for a song… it was quite a trip, and then we holed up at the Creamery and put it all on to analog tape with Greg Ashley twiddlin his knob like there was no tomorrow. It was a bitch slappin’ good time and a tribute to how much love i have for Oakland and especially to all the good times we had at the Ghost town gallery and eating Big Poppa’s burgers. Oakland may never be the same, but it will always be in my heart!

We've got the premiere of the album's first single, "It's A Lie," which is classic King Khan garage soul. Listen to that below.

There are no tour dates announced at the moment but stay tuned.
