No Kings; a four-piece surf-ska band out of San Diego/CA has been laying down their boundary blending music since 2011. On any song, you’ll find traces of first and second wave ska rhythms mixed with psychedelic surf rock and punk punch. Surviving on a steady diet of live show chaos and fun, No Kings has shared the stage with the likes of Fortunate Youth, Long Beach Dub All Stars, Perro Bravo, Mike Love, The Ziggens, Mike Pinto, Bumpin Uglies and more. After two independent EP releases, No Kings signed to Long Beach Records for the 2015 release “Lowlifes & High Rollers”. In february of 2019 the EP “Steady Yourself” was released followed by a West Coast Tour and the song “On The Floor” featuring on Top 5 of the radio 91.X San Diego. The new EP “Lost Weekend” wraps up 2019 with a outstanding production filled up with their usual energy and intensity along four tracks with the best of No Kings.
“...the guitar sounds of psychedelic and surf-rock, interspersed with the frenetic energy of punk.” (Mike Patti, The Pier)
“...it's as if the first most revered Southern California surfer rock legends, The Beach Boys, got together to smoke a bongload with their evolved stoner rock successors, Sublime.” (Kristy Rose, TopShelfReggae)
