Fresh off the announcement of their upcoming album, supergroup KXM – Dug Pinnick of King’s X on vocals/bass, George Lynch of Lynch Mob/Dokken on guitars and Ray Luzier, of Korn on drums – released the first music video from their new record. The energizing video for “War Of Words” depicts the band artfully contemplating the consequences of our words in today’s climate in the midst of a ferocious musical performance. The video was shot by Sebastien Paquet, and edited & directed by Jamie Brown for Smoking Gun Productions Inc.
Building upon the success of their 2014 self-titled debut and 2017’s Scatterbrain, KXM’s Circle Of Dolls is scheduled for release on September 13th via Rat Pak Records and will also be available via Frontiers Music SRL in Europe. Circle Of Dolls is currently available for pre-order via the Rat Pak Records website in various bundle configurations including turquoise & black splatter vinyl, cassette and hand autographed CD packages at: https://smarturl.it/KXMbundles. Circle Of Dolls features 13 brand new tracks and was recorded at the Steakhouse studio in North Hollywood California where the band once again tapped Chris “The Wizard” Collier to engineer and co-produce the new effort.
From the infectious riff of the album opener “War of Words” to the album finale of “The Border,”KXM have yet again created something truly special and musically diverse. Songs like “Lightning,” “Big As The Sun,” and “Cold Sweats” are sonically different from each other taking the listener on a musical journey. Circle of Dolls is a darker record thematically than their first two albums and builds upon the established KXM rock sound with thought provoking lyrics, catchy guitar riffs and rock-solid grooves.

KXM formed in early 2013 when Dug, George and Ray spoke about trying to jam together. At the time it wasn’t clear what would come from those jams. The only thing that was clear was that these 3 musicians, at the top of their game, wanted to play together. The self-titled debut, KXM, was released on March 11, 2014 and debuted at #31 on the Billboard 200. The followupScatterbrain was released March 17, 2017 to critical and fan acclaim. The band takes its name from the combination of the member’s other projects: K from Korn, X from King’s X and M from Lynch Mob. In a world that constantly searches for new and unique music, KXM delivers all the power and punch that one would expect from these high-level players.
