City of Kings was formed in Marion, Ohio by the instrumentalists in the band while they were in high school. In May of 2011 City of Kings moved to Dayton, Ohio where they added the missing piece to their band: Jake Rose on vocals. City of Kings lived in a small 2 bedroom apartment getting their feet on the ground in Dayton. The band then moved into a house with a basement and the music began. They hit the studio a few months later and recorded The Foundation. City of Kings is looking forward to reviving music and look forward to seeing you at their next show.
