KINGS AND LIARS – featuring brothers Charlie and Nick Bellmore (THE DEE SNIDER BAND, JASTA) and Christopher Taylor Beaudette (JASTA, ENTIERRO) have released the video for “Hang on for Dear Life.” The new song from the Connecticut-based hard rock juggernaut marks the second single from their upcoming album, Transition Animals.
Guitarist/vocalist Charlie Bellmore comments on the track, “This song feels like a mission statement for the entire band – RIFFS, big choruses with harmonies, trading vocals, solos that lean way into the blues and the signature Bellmore Brothers songwriting you’ve been hearing in a lot of different places the last 15 years. Crank it and sing along!”
Salt of the Earth Records will release Transition Animals on January 28, 2022.
“THIS is the talent pool from where my inspiration comes! The Bellmore Brothers are individually and collectively brilliant! Nicky’s amazing drumming, producing, engineering, mixing, and mastering are unparalleled. Charlie’s incredible guitar playing, songwriting, and singing are the backbone of my musical career today. So, listen and be amazed at musicians and a band who you should have heard long ago! Kings and Liars is here!!” – Dee Snider
“This is straight-up heavy and catchy rock! The music sucks you in, the killer voices keep you there. I dig it!” – Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage)
“All I can say is WOW…I Love the new Kings and Liars!!! I’ve had the pleasure of sharing the stage many times with Charlie, Nick, and Chris!!! All 3 are top-notch musicians and great guys!!! Charlie is an awesome songwriter…do yourselves a favor and check this out!!!” – Kirk Windstein (Crowbar)
Compared to previous releases, Transition Animals sees a more streamlined band returning to the spotlight as a three-piece, hell-bent on delivering some heavy as all hell, well-crafted, catchy songs.
The members of KINGS AND LIARS share international notoriety as members of some severely ass-kicking bands… Kingdom Of Sorrow, The Dee Snider Band, Jasta, Entierro, and Toxic Holocaust to name a few. Charlie and Nick Bellmore have also written and recorded material for the upcoming solo album by George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (Cannibal Corpse).
Dummer Nick Bellmore is an uber-producer who has been at the helm of many many kick-ass releases. When great artists want to up the heavy, they call these guys.
