KING 810 will embark on a series of limited engagement live events next month for their latest album, LA PETITE MORT OR A CONVERSATION WITH GOD, which will include a unique performance each night that will captivate its audiences in their intensely personal and often contentious world.
The band recently launched Part 1 of ‘THIS IS KING,’ an episodic documentary piece which gives fans an unfiltered look into their lives and performances. For future episodes of ‘THIS IS KING,’ fans can subscribe to the band’s YouTube.
Also, PHub, the premier online destination for adult entertainment, debuted the NSFW music video for “La Petite Mort.” The clip is the first to incorporate on-screen sex in an 8-minute long music video. The video, which was shot in Los Angeles and directed by the band’s own David Gunn, is a provocative piece of erotica featuring adult film stars Jenna Foxx, Jasmine Summers, Amber Ivy, Lily Jordan, Alex Legend and Jake Jace. “La Petite Mort,” which refers to “The Little Death” (the sensation of orgasm as likened to death), is matched with explicit visuals in the official video conjuring the darkness and desperation of sexuality.
“A lot of the ideas for our videos came together in the song writing process. This one was no exception,” said Gunn. “The record touches on sex in a lot of ways. It used to be that sex and rock and roll went hand in hand, but that archetype has been reconstructed over the years to make way for a safe/tame/boring/politically correct culture, which we have never belonged to. It’s sad that something so inherent and necessary has become taboo, but we have done what we always do and that is to follow the art wherever it must go regardless of how uncharted the territory may be.”
The always provocative band will appear at Rex Theater in Pittsburgh, PA on 6/10.
