Milwaukee-based soul band, co-founded by proprietor of the fabled Lotus Land record shop Andy Noble and longtime Milwaukee area R&B performer Black Wolf, Kings Go Forth drops its debut album, The Outsiders Are Back. Following a string of seven-inches lauded by soul music blogs and spun by the likes of DJ Shadow, the new album features artwork by Mingering Mike – the first time the celebrated artist has ever created art for a recording that actually exists – and a mix by Tom Moulton, the legendary producer and originator of the remix and 12-inch single format.
Written by Noble and Wolf, the full-length of nine original songs includes the Moulton mix of “Don’t Take My Shadow.” The album’s lone cover is an impossibly obscure soul lament written and recorded in a prison. In addition to Noble and Wolf, Kings Go Forth features Andy Noble on bass, Dave Wake on keyboards, guitarist Dan Flynn, percussionist Cecilio Negron, Jr., the explosive drummer Jeremy Kuzniar, trombonist Dave Cusma, trumpeter Jed Groser, vocalist Dan Fernandez, and rhythm guitarist and vocalist Matt Norberg.
