News Update: Burning Jet Black will release a new EP that will coincide with a performance at El Cid in Los Angeles on August 25th. Burning Jet Black has become a Kings favorite after listening to Magazine Girl. The band is fresh on the scene and consist of members of the Los Angeles based band The Whiskey Saints. For fans of The Black Keys and The Doors.
Singer/songwriter Elle Varner who Kings profiled a year ago will land on next week’s Billboard 200 albums chart. “Her debut album “Perfectly Imperfect” should start in the top 10 of the tally as industry sources are projecting it may sell 25,000 to 30,000. That number is about twice as much as some forecasters had initially thought the 23-year old’s set was going to sell.” (Bilboard)
