After a ten-year hiatus, the Danish rock ensemble TYRANTS & KINGS emerges from the shadows and into the dark on their new album 'Sketches For A Requiem', set for a May 31st release through Engine Room Records. It's an album with a new minimalist approach to production and songwriting, cutting to the core in its personal tales of life and death. This past April saw the release of TYRANTS & KINGS’s first new music in 10 years in the shape of the simultaneously bleak and beautiful opener ‘End of An Endless Day’. 

TYRANTS & KINGS have been on a significant artistic journey since 2008, where they rose from the ashes of the rock band The Royal Highness with singer and songwriter Dennis Kasten as the band's creative driving force. Since then, TYRANTS & KINGS have released three albums 'Tyrants & Kings' (2009), 'Phosphor Anthems' (2011), and most recently 'RunMarchBurn' (2014), while establishing themselves as a present and rawly swinging live orchestra.

Following the three initial albums, where the hard, guitar-based rock sound dominated, there arose a need within the band to trim all unnecessary musical fat and let the vocals and songs take center stage. After some time of experimenting, the skeleton of a new type of songs emerged; Naked, smoldering and gritty, with melodies that feel both familiar and new, and with a structure and dynamic that constantly moves and lives its own special life.
