“The Spiritual Dark Age is the last three years of my life painstakingly distilled into 40 minutes of music,” says frontman Ralph Pelleymounter of the album. “It has ballads for my single friends watching everyone else gradually pair off, and deities and fables getting drunk in bars. It has moments of anger and disgust at characters like Peter Popoff and their parasitic feeding of the most vulnerable people, and it has folk songs about two gods who’d rather burn down the world than admit they still love each other. But hopefully, in amongst the chaos and darker tales, it has an underlying message that compassion being such a beautiful and complex thing may just save the day."

Earlier this year To Kill A King played three consecutive London headline dates (at The Borderline, Oslo, and Omeara) and in support of the album they will head out on a full UK tour, starting at Sheffield Plug on January 11th and culminating at Islington Assembly Hall on January 27th. Says guitarist Grant McNeill, “After roughly 2 years in a room with a single window and a bare lightbulb making this record, we can't wait to get out on the road, if for nothing else but to get some sunlight. That's why we chose to tour in January.”
