King No-One release powerful video for ‘Antichrist’

Standing strong against social prejudice, York four-piece King No-One have released the video for their defiant new single ‘Antichrist’. WATCH HERE

With a strong band ethos that ‘no-one is king’ and we are all equal regardless of gender, race and sexual orientation, frontman Zach Lount explains the inspiration behind the video, “There’s always been a battle between tyranny and liberty, and this video depicts that. No two people are the same, and we should celebrate our quirks and differences, not isolate them. To at least one person, we’re all an Antichrist”. 

With knowing references to the totalitarian imagery utilised by the likes of Kraftwerk and early period Simple Minds, the video addresses the issues of dictatorship and abuse of power which have been used throughout history to scapegoat those who are different. With its bold animations and seamless choreography, the video is both eye-catching and powerful and further evidence of the band’s quirky and extravagant style.

‘Antichrist’ is the follow-up to their previous pop-infused indie anthem ‘Alcatraz’ and sees King No-One deliver a contemporary alternative-indie edge with hints of late 90’s hip-hop stylings. The track has had a huge response online and has charted in Spotify’s UK Top 50 viral chart and been added to ‘The Indie List’ playlist.

Having secured slots last year at the likes of Reading and Leeds, the Great Escape, Live At Leeds, Dot-to-Dot and Club NME at KOKO in Camden and completed two UK headline tours in 2016, playing to sold-out crowds across the country, King No-One have rapidly become one of the biggest ticket-selling new bands in the UK.

Their flamboyant style has also won the hearts of radio stations and seen them supported by the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing and Radio X. They have also performed a stunning set to adoring fans at the BBC Introducing Showcase on March 2nd at The Lexington, London.

Now, due to continued fan demand, they will be heading back out on the road this month for their biggest run of UK shows to date.

Inspiring fans to stay unique and cherish individuality, King No-One are rapidly on the rise as one of the most exciting emerging bands of 2017.
