New Album: Palace of the King’s Get Right With Your Maker – Golden Robot Records -Release date March 23, 2018
Rock At Night is pleased to present the phenomenal new album of the Australian band PALACE OF THE KING, GET RIGHT WITH YOUR MAKER.
It’s last November that the band announced the arrival of their album through the first single – It’s Been A Long Time Coming- a great title announcing the atmosphere of their forthcoming opus. If you like Blackberry Smoke, Crobot, AC / DC, LED Zeppelin …You’ll be quickly addicted!
The band will head Europe in a few days!!! ! I am very excited to see them live for Rock At Night France, April 13th at Woodstock Guitares Live in Ensisheim. Can’t wait…The concert review soon! Meanwhile check the tour dates and the album news here below.
PALACE OF THE KING forth album, Get Right With Your Maker, has just been released a few days ago through Golden Robot Records, as they gear up for their next European tour.
An epic moment on the album, I Am The Storm, is the lead single and second offering from the new LP. It hits the listener straight up and sets the tone for one hell of a rock record, taking you on a huge journey, storm and all. It follows on from their recent single, “It’s Been A Long Time Coming”, which let everyone know that Palace of the King were BACK.
Get Right With Your Maker is the band’s third full length album and fifth release overall, but it’s much more than that – it’s their coming of age. It was recorded in multiple sessions around touring commitments, with life on the road having become part of the DNA of Get Right With Your Maker lyrically and musically. The polishing was done with mixing duties shared between Machine (Clutch/Crobot) at The Machine Shop in Texas and Liam Jenkins at Somedays Studios in NYC.
Touring constantly, Palace of the King average 100 shows a year. They’ve headlined three tours of Europe, spending 4 – 8 weeks on the road there every year since 2015. They’ve supported Airbourne in the U.K and France in front of thousands of rabid rock fans, played the USA twice in 2016 and 2017, headlined the Black Woodstock Festival in New Caledonia and circled Australia dozens of times in a tour van. They tour more than any of their peers because even though they’re a fully-fledged new millennium rock band, they also believe in the old school work ethic of the old school rock bands.
If you’ve never heard a PALACE OF THE KING record before, there’s no better place to get on board than right here and GET RIGHT WITH YOUR MAKER.

From Belgian and Italian parents, I grew up with music, dance and big fun! I love singing since I'm a little girl, I still am, haha. When I was 14, I saw my first concert: T-Rex. Later it was FrankZappa, Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Fela, Canned Heat, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, Earth, Wind and Fire ....
I dreamed to have a chat with each of them 😀 Before interviewing bands, I used to sing (and still do) and met lots of great musicians. I had the chance to be the support band to Joe Cocker in 2007. I love to communicate and meet people (Italian blood).
Working for magazine, a few years ago, l met José Oliveira! We were working at the same festival in Colmar. 2 people from the South with the same passion just recognized each other...and we stayed in contact since then. Here I am! Enjoying concerts, covering interviews and articles with José for Rock at Night!!
