Fur King is a three piece heavy rock band from Austin TX. The group bonded and the crowned creature was born in November of 2010. They started playing shows in January 2011 and have been traveling as a pride since.
This line-up is the hairy brainchild of "Superxxxxxgoatass" singer/guitarist Russell Abbott, former bassist of "Black Lamb" Andy Pfeiffer (producer) and "Young Cub" Augie Arreola beating on his drums like he's playing for Santana at Woodstock. The band insists that all songs that they perform are about "hot relations" but there is no evidence to support the ridiculous myth. (it's true)
The 70's Rock influence is strong within these confines. If your looking for a good dose of Texas Booty Rock then you have arrived at the proverbial X on the ground. ZZ topp, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Free and Aerosmith (just to name a few) are oozing out of the pores of these eclectic compositions that mock yet glorify the best music in the world.
Fur King is now devoted to spreading some more of that tongue in cheek stadium rock across the East/West Coast and the U.K. in the near future. The trio also produces self engineered recordings and actually records essentially every rehearsal they play. One thing is for certain is that these uncaged animals are out for some good times (and feedings) and it looks like Fur King could be around Fur Ever!
