King also dropped a heist movie themed official music video for new album Young Blood’s first single “Hard Working Man”. The Tarantino inspired clip, which was premiered today with RELIX, stars King as a hard working man just trying to make an honest buck, who gets embroiled in a web of violence, motivated by money and a mysterious love interest. The video soundtracks King’s red hot guitar playing and soulful singing.

All hail to Marcus King. The 26-year-old Grammy nominated innovative songwriter and phenomenal performer. Young Blood is A timeless concoction of swaggering rock and supersonic soul, drawing on his most stadium sized rock influences.

Young Blood is an album about looking at tough times in your rear view mirror, his tales of excess, salvation, break up and addiction, draw on some difficult and personal moments. Despite challenging personal circumstances, King has made his most accomplished work to date. One of his biggest fans, Dan Auerbach exclaimed. “Music runs so deep in Marcus’s blood he might not even realize how born to do this he is. He’s the real deal.”

King has been an outlier from the very beginning. A fourth generation musician from Greenville, SC, who learned guitar at age 3 from his blues rock musician father Marvin King. He navigated troublesome school years to quickly become known as one of the most promising young artists of our time. He followed his breakout success with The Marcus King Band, with his Auerbach produced 2020 solo album debut, El Dorado. It garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Americana Album” and critical praise from The New York Times to NPR’s Weekend Edition With unparalleled performance prowess and a dynamic live show, King has sold out historic venues from The Beacon to The Filmore . He has opened for Chris Stapleton, Greta Van Fleet, and Nathaniel Rateliff and graced the bills of Stagecoach, Fuji Rock, Rock Werchter and more. He also recently launched his own custom Gibson guitar and signature Orange guitar amplifier, the MK Ultra, which sold out before it even hit the stores.

King will continue to tear up the rulebook with the release Young Bloodredefining the route to modern rock stardom with a timeless sound and a singular voice, equal parts grease and grit, set to soon establish him as one of the most soulful vocalists of his generation.
