CAROUSEL KINGS have anchored their name as one of the most ambitious and creative rock machines in recent years. The Lancaster, PA music scene has definitely had an influence on CAROUSEL KINGS - the same town that bred the metal bands August Burns Red, Texas In July, and This Or The Apocalypse. It gave them the idea that it was possible to be a national act, to go for it.
Having grown up there, influenced by heavy bands, but wanting to do something different, CAROUSEL KINGS did just that. The band wanted to be as poppy as possible but stay true to their roots, keeping the edginess, and the ethic, in place.
It's been a non-stop road trip for CAROUSEL KINGS ever since as the band toured extensively, performing with Panic! At The Disco, Less Than Jake, Rise Against, City Lights, and the 2015 Vans Warped Tour.
When CAROUSEL KINGS were thinking of a title for album number three, they wanted to find a name that was tranquil, yet matches their glossy pop melodies and arena-sized hooks.
Charm City is about that dream place, a trippy world shared by all, yet unique to the individual.
"This is the place where I go in my dreams," says singer David Alexander.
"I want to connect the listener to my 'Charm City', and realize that they too can envision and live in their own 'Charm City' whenever they want to."
Having recorded nearly every previous piece of CAROUSEL KINGS material, producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak were called back to Atrium Audio (Candlebox, August Burns Red) in early 2016 to record Charm City. August Burns Red bassist/vocalist Dustin Davidson lends his voice on the track 'Something Isn’t Right.'
'We hope this record can connect both on an entertaining, fun level, and also get people thinking outside the box with regards to what it is they can accomplish,' admits Alexander. 'Anything is possible. Create your own ‘Charm City,’ and go for it!'
