KING'S X Frontman's Solo Album Delayed

Magna Carta Records has pushed back the release date of KING'S X frontman Doug Pinnick's third solo album, "Emotional Animal", to August 2 from the previously announced July 19.

Doug played most of the instruments and vocals on the CD, with a little help from KING'S X drummer Jerry's son Joy Gaskill (drums) and Kelly Watson (mouth trumpet and vocals on "Freak The Funk Out"). The album was recorded and mixed at Poundhound Studio by Dug, and mastered by Ty Tabor. "Emotional Animal" will have an interview and bonus demo versions of two of the songs on the CD-Rom portion of the disc.

While Pinnick's previous solo outings were credited to POUNDHOUND, this will be the first to feature solely Pinnick's name (or a slight variation thereof: DUG PINNICK). He described the album to as mostly rock-based but with a few surprises, including the gospel-tinged "Equal Rights", as well as a dance track, "When You Gonna Come".

As previously reported, KING'S X have set "Landscape" as the title of their new album, due on September 27 via InsideOut Music America.

The first new KING'S X album from guitarist/vocalist Ty Tabor, bass guitarist/vocalist Doug Pinnick and drummer/vocalist Jerry Gaskill under the new deal will include up to 14 songs; the track listing is being finalized.

The new KING'S X album was produced by Michael Wagener, who has produced, engineered or mixed work by the likes of METALLICA, ALICE COOPER, QUEEN, OZZY OSBOURNE, DOKKEN, MEGADETH, MÖTLEY CRÜE, SKID ROW, EXTREME and many others.

KING'S X also plan to shoot videos for two singles from the album, their first promotional clips since 1998's "Tapehead". They will be directed by Dr. Teeth, who has helmed videos that are all over MTV for artists such as new hip-hop sensation MIKE JONES.
