Kottonmouth Kings Debut At #26 On Billboard
April 30, 2010
Without the aid of mainstream press, radio, or MTV, the Kottonmouth Kings have infiltrated the music industry on their own terms and made themselves a force to be reckoned with. The group's new album, 'Long Live The Kings', debuted at #26 on the Billboard Top 200 this week to give the band their highest charting record in the group's career. The chart position confirms how powerful the band's underground movement has become, and silences critics who refuse to acknowledge the group's lasting staying power.

"Our new album, 'Long Live The Kings', charting so high on the Billboard Top 200 is a testament to perseverance, hard work and self belief. If we would have paid attention to the critics and naysayers we would have been done 15 years ago," commented Daddy X of Kottonmouth Kings. "Against all odds, we are a true independent underground success story, and we are 100 percent self made, self produced, self manufactured, and self sold!"

"I am happy to see our fans embracing this record, as well as a rejuvenation of the Kingdom and its followers," added Dirtball. "Both the group and the label put a gang of work into this record release, and I am super stoked to see our hard work pay off. Long Live the Kings!"

'Long Live The Kings' is a brand new chapter in the Kottonmouth Kings storied career. After more than a decade and millions of albums sold, the group has reinvented themselves with the addition of motor-mouth rapper the Dirtball, who joins the group as a full-time member. With a new member and new creative firepower, the Kottonmouth Kings have taken their sound into uncharted territories. 'Long Live The Kings' features two explosive guest appearances by underground legends Tech N9ne and the Insane Clown Posse.

Kottonmouth Kings Streaming Entire New Album Online
April 13, 2010
Kottonmouth Kings are currently streaming their entire new album online at www.MySpace.com/KottonmouthKings. The group's new album, "Long Live The Kings", lands in stores on April 20th, 2010 through Suburban Noize Records.

"When it came time to record our new album, 'Long Live The Kings', we decided to switch things up by adding our labelmate the Dirtball to the group," says Daddy X. "It would have been easy to go through the motions and put it in cruise control, but we opted to switch things up and move in a new direction. So with a new creative energy, we rented a cabin for six months in Sequoia National Forest and started writing and recording. In a lot of ways this felt like the same energy we had when we were making our first record. We weren't afraid to try new things and take a bold step in a new direction with this album. I think the music speaks for itself and this is one of the best records the Kottonmouth Kings have ever done."

Kottonmouth Kings Post New Video Online
April 1, 2010
The Kottonmouth Kings newest member, the Dirtball, is currently tripping on psychedelics in the group's new video for the track "Mushrooms", which can be seen online at this location. The song is part of the group's new album, 'Long Live The Kings', which hits stores on April 20th, 2010 through Suburban Noize.

"Making music videos is one of the dopest parts of being in the rap business," commented Dirtball. "I have always wanted to do a green screen, psychedelic video to one of my songs, particularly a more technically patterned one like "Mushrooms". Obviously the name warrants the special attention, and I am stoked on the end result which is pure visual mania! Expand your mind on this chunk of entertainment!"

Kottonmouth Kings are riding a creative high after announcing they have added Oregon based rapper the Dirtball to the group as a full-time member. Dirtball's motor mouth can be heard all over the group's new album, including tracks like "Stomp," "Rampage" and "Party Monsters" featuring Tech N9ne. Kottonmouth Kings' 'Long Live The Kings' is currently available for pre-order with a bonus CD and exclusive DVD online at www.SubNoizeStore.com.

Biography
HOME TOWN: Kalifornia

California based hip-hop/punk rock hybrid are sitting high on their own musical cloud of stoney vibrations. After breaking the Billboard Top 40 with no support from radio or MTV with their last studio album, Koast To Koast, the Kings showed the world why they are one of the biggest success stories in independent music today. The group�s headlining tours through the US and Japan were completely sold out, they finally landed on the cover of High Times Magazine, headlined the 2006 installment of the Cannabis Cup and capped things off by becoming the High Times �Band of the Year.

On August 28th, 2007, The Kottonmouth Kings are looking to get a little higher with the release of Cloud 9. The group�s ninth studio album features 22 songs of musical mayhem that continues to push the group into uncharted territories.

"We really stepped it up on Cloud 9. We felt we needed to make a statement and take it to the next level," says frontman Brad X. "As we continue to evolve we don�t need to reinvent ourselves, we just magnify ourselves and continue to expand who we are and what we do. Cloud Nine is a more intense record but the climate of our world is more intense."

Cloud 9 also features some high-profile guest appearances from Cypress Hill's B-Real on "Ridin' High" and Sen Dog on "Darkside,� and "Think 4 Yourself" featuring Insane Clown Posse. The album also includes an appearance by Tech N9ne on �City 2 City,� which has already become one of the most requested songs on Sirius Satellite Radio FACTION channel, while the video for the track has been viewed over 150,000 times within a month of its release.

"I think it's the sickest adventure yet for Kottonmouth Kings," Daddy X says of the group's ninth studio album. "Musically, there's some sinister hip-hop stuff on there," Daddy X said of the album. "There are definitely some real mellow, stoney songs on there. And then there are some rip-hop songs, where we fuse punk rock and hip-hop. We brought that back on this record for some songs. It's just a classic Kottonmouth Kings record with a lot of diverse styles on it."

In the climate of today's struggling music industry, the Kottonmouth Kings continue to thrive. The group runs the immensely successful independent record label Suburban Noize Records, which markets and distributes the Kings as well as over 20 other acts including (hed)pe, Mondo Generator, hip-hop legends X-Clan, Jada Pinkett Smith's Wicked Wisdom and Big B from A & E's hit television series Inked. In addition, the band is also involved in the vastly successful lifestyle clothing company SRH, which registers millions in sales each year.

The Kottonmouth Kings also assembled one of the biggest concert grossing tours of summer with the Strange Noize Tour, which also included Tech N9ne, (hed)p.e., and some of the hottest groups in the world of underground hip-hop. The tour brought together two of America's biggest independent labels - Suburban Noize and Strange Music - for one traveling summer music festival that was completely sold out.
After over a decade of cultivating a massive worldwide movement, the Kings are continue to elevate their musical vision to new heights year after year.

"I think the reason 12 years later the Kottonmouth Kings are still touring, putting out records, selling out places is because it's a living and breathing, tangible thing that these our fans can enjoy,� closes Brad X. "They haven't seen a single or a video on MTV; it's a real thing that they're part of. It's an underground subculture.�
