The King Lot are a rock trio from the heart of Scotland formed in 2013 by longtime friends Jason Sweeney, Chris Gillon and Michael Fairbairn. Melodic, with a hard rock edge, the band straddle a few rock genres and are fast becoming known for being masters of earwormery. You would also never guess they’re a trio based on the depth of sound they create.
Their self titled debut album was released via Crown Jewel Records, the band’s own record label, to critical acclaim and received rave reviews from the likes of Planet Rock, Fireworks Magazine and PowerPlay.
The band have grown year on year playing shows with like minded rock acts such as Tyketto, The Answer, Inglorious, Big Country and Dan Reed to name a few. They have picked up a loyal fan base along the way, developing a reputation as a solid live band.
2017 saw the departure of Michael Fairbairn and the arrival of young guitarist Jay Moir who has brought a fresh, new dimension to the band. The King Lot are presently recording A World Without Evil, the follow up to their debut album, and a release is expected in early 2018.
