We the Kings

Jeffrey Parker

Who? We the Kings is a foursome of young men fromBradenton, Florida. Comprised of Travis Clark on lead vocals andguitar, Hunter Thomsen on guitar and vocals, Drew Thomsen on bass, andDanny Duncan on drums, the band's self-titled debut LP is out now onthe S-Curve label. They will spend the New Year touring the U.S. withCobra Starship.

What's the Deal? This is the soundof a million suburban teenagers hating their parents in unison -- whichisn't necessarily a bad thing, considering that the four Kings allhover pretty close in age to their prospective fanbase. "Check YesJuliet" transplants the Shakespearean lovers from the streets of Veronato the halls of high school with sugary hooks. "The Quiet" is anythingbut with its pop punk whinny and shout-along chorus, and "This Is OurTown" is the last song played at prom in the fictional universe of The OC that's continued after the show was cancelled.

Fun Fact: The band met while attending Martha B. King Middle School, hence their clever namesake, We the Kings.
