Bio

Before the King are four shagged-haired minstrels from Sydney’s inner west, with the summery sounds of early 2000's indie rock flowing through their musical veins.

Formed in 2015, the band have had plenty of time to hone in on, and fine-tune their craft. For all this hard work, Before the King are now at the point where they can comfortably pump out indie rock bangers with their eyes closed.

From ambitious social media campaigns attracting the likes of industry-guru Damien Keyes, to having their very own burrito named after them by Newtown’s Beach Burrito, Before the King are always moving. Always trying something new and exciting.

2020 saw the band release their first two singles, Low Expectations and Argentina respectively. Both singles were met with a warm reception, accruing a collective 60k streams, and ‘Argentina’ charting within the top 10 on the Unearthed charts for multiple weeks after its release

Before the King’s are now back with supersonic third single ‘You Might Think You’re Right (But That’s Where You’re Wrong)’. A compulsively re-playable, scorching, indie rock, self-love anthem, guaranteed to put the drive in your day.

‘You Might Think You’re Right (But That’s Where You’re Wrong)’ will be available from 25.2.2021

Let's be honest, it sounds like this was a bit of a disastrous trip. The trifecta of losing, misplacing and selling your heart, soul and head seems a little bit hectic, so props for pulling it all together to get a fun and pretty song out of it.
