King 810 Release New Track From Flint Water Crisis Compilation
I’ve taken shots at King 810 in the past, and I’ll stand by them because I’m not a huge fan of their music or public persona.
Now, that said, I commend the band for what they’ve done to try and help their hometown of Flint, MI, in the face of the tragic water crisis there. The band put out a track and shirt last month to benefit the Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s “Flint Child Health & Development Fund.”
Now, the band has released a new track from the upcoming compilation Not Safe To Drink: Music For Flint Water Crisis Relief, a charity compilation featuring over fifty punk, metal, and alternative artists. Once again, all proceeds go to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s “Flint Child Health & Development Fund.”
What’s also interesting is that the new track, “Crow’s Feet”, switches up King 810’s style a bit. The lyrics, rhythm, and general atmosphere are more interesting here, and recall some of nu-metal’s more dynamic moments. Obviously, there is no silver lining to something as horrible as what’s happening in Flint, but at least this has inspired to band to look in different directions.
