Bassist Criss Wieckowski explains the meaning behind ‘Out Of Control’:
“‘Out Of Control’ is about standing up against the system and defending your true self. When you’ve realised all your dreams and all your values have been taken away by the system, you can either give up and live within the barriers created for you or stand up, fight for your dreams and follow what lies deep in your heart. It’s all about what you’ve got and what they cannot take.”
Guitarist/vocalist Alan Zuber adds:
“It’s crazy! Attila is a band that we’ve listened to and looked up to for years, so to work with Fronz was amazing! He’s a faultless example of living by your own code, so considering the message that we want to deliver, he was the perfect fit for this song. The work itself went smoothly. Fronz doesn’t shy away from expressing his opinions as well as providing his insight during the song creation. All in all, we couldn’t be happier with how it came out. Hopefully, one day we could hit the stage together!”
Formed in the summer of 2014, Alan Zuber and Criss Wieckowski went on to create what would become DOWN WITH THE KINGS. 2017 saw the release of the band’s debut single ‘Selfish Game’, which was recorded with the help of Simon Yildirim (To The Rats And Wolves) and was met with high praise.
After surviving numerous line-up changes, the quintet have honed in on what has now become their signature sound. For fans of Blessthefall, Coldrain, Asking Alexandria, Crown The Empire and Atilla, DOWN WITH THE KINGS drew on these inspirations, as well as some tough and emotional personal experiences, to produce their hardest hitting track to date.
