Two years after releasing his most-streamed single to date, “Someone Else,” the guitar-thrashing, metal-meets-bass authority Sullivan King returned to Monstercat.
Collaborating with chart-topping producer Ray Volpe, the duo combine earth-shattering screams and destructive riffs on “The Dead March,” giving fans a taste of Sullivan King’s lethal new music to come.
Rife with his complex percussive rhythms that pave the way for searing vocals and death-defying drops, the record appeals to heavy rock aficionados and dubstep enthusiasts alike.
Sullivan King shares, “‘The Dead March’ really felt like the right track to truly set the tone for this next era of my music. With all the sh*t that’s going on in the world, in music and in life, it feels like people are just waiting for one another to fall, and this track, while vocally short-lived but to the f*cking point, is a way of saying, ‘I’m taking you with me if you want me dead’. So let’s march together.”
Ray Volpe adds, “This was so fun to work on together! Extremely easy to balance our styles and I think they both really shine through on this.”
Having worked with metal’s best from Aaron Gillespie of Underoath to Jason Aalon of FEVER 333, as well as the biggest producers in the electronic scene from Excision to Subtronics, Sullivan King has established himself as an in-demand multi-genre force. After welcoming his first son earlier this spring, he’s enjoyed fatherhood from the road, taking to a run of live dates across the US this summer. Including stops at Nocturnal Wonderland, Lost Lands, and LA’s Academy, he’ll bring fans anticipated collabs, plenty of shredding, and more shows to be announced soon.
