King Khan: Free MP3, Spring Tour


Venture with us, won’t
you, into the land of the freak….


By Fred Mills


By now, King Khan probably thinks I’m stalking him. Not only
did I attend (and review) the King Khan & the Shrines show when they came
to Asheville last month, I kept running into Khan all over Austin at SXSW – not
only at a couple of his own showcases (the Shrines’ show, plus King Khan &
BBQ) but at other artists’, including his buddy Mark Sultan as well as the
mighty Sonics. Don’t worry Khan, it’s just puppy love.


I’m definitely smitten by the upcoming release of What Is?!, due April 21 from Vice, which
not only has all the material from the original vinyl release but, if you’re
iTunes-centric, includes a 20-minute video exclusive. (What Is?! Comes on the heels of last year’s release of The Supreme Genius Of, reviewed HERE.)
And you can bet I’ll catch the band at one of their spring shows too, full tour
itinerary below.


Meanwhile, the band wants to share with you a free MP3 of “Land Of The Freak,” which is nothing short of a
kickass tune. You know you want it.
