P.O.S, Dessa, Sims, Cecil Otter, Mike Mictlan, Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger are back! Branching off to release their respective solo projects, the Wings & Teeth crew are finally reassembling for their new album, No Kings, which will be dropping on November 22nd. Pre-orders are available now.
The title of the record is both a call for rebellion and respect: Obey no kings, seek no thrones. Indeed No Kings displays a gang of friends who are fearless in each other’s company and beholden to none. At times musical and lush (“Beacon”) and at times dark and clanging (“Bolt Cutter”), the beats project the radical power of P.O.S., the inventive classicism of Cecil Otter, the moving moodiness of Paper Tiger and the face-melting heat of Lazerbeak. Meanwhile, Mike Mictlan and Sims trade lithe lines with much swagger over smashing drums on “Punch-Out,” Otter and Dessa get bluesy on top of the mournful guitar of “Little Mercy,” and P.O.S. leads the amped-up charge for “Bangarang,” which celebrates “ten years in our lane.”
Both fun and fierce, blade-flashing and uplifting, unpredictable and unapologetic, No Kings is the sound of seven people who look different, talk different and listen to different music coming together and simply going full-tilt on an album from start to finish. Wings and teeth—it’s the Doomtree way.
