Local prog rockers King Bathmat are back with the release of their 6th album ‘Truth Button’. The album was released worldwide on 21st January on Sterohead Records.
For the uninitiated King Bathmat are the brainchild of singer/guitarist and songwriter John Bassett. Although John has been releasing albums under the King Bathmat name since 2003, it is only over the past couple of years that the project has expanded and now includes 3 other band members.
King Bathmat’s music has been described as “The sound of Pink Floyd wrestling with Kasabian” and “Black Sabbath cuddled by extravagant ELO harmonies”.

I was going to write a review of ‘Truth Button’ myself. But if you look at their website, where you can read some reviews, you can see that the album has been getting a lot of attention worldwide on websites, magazines and radio stations as well. All of which is very good news for the band, especially as the reviews have been very positive.
King Bathmat even had a track from the album featured on the cover CD of the latest issue of ‘Prog Magazine’. The album is reviewed in the magazine as well.
Just to prove that King Bathmat are not standing still, John Bassett has 60% of the bands next album already written. You can’t keep a good man down.
