      For as loud as their riffs and roars are, Acid Kings legacy is as unassuming as it is enduring, casting a quiet shadow over the underground for over two decades.Bathed in distortion and baptized in a plume of smoke, the Bay Area trioLori S. [vocals, guitars], Joey Osborne [drums], and Mark Lamb [bass]re-emerged with their first offering in a decade, Middle of Nowhere Center of Everywhere. Receiving widespread critical acclaim, tastemakers such as Noisey, Blabbermouth, Invisible Oranges, Ultimate Guitar, and New Noise lauded the album. They embarked on tours of the States and Australia, appearing on festivals including Psycho Las Vegas, Erosion Fest, Desert Generator, and more as well as sharing the stage with everyone from Sleep and Down to Blue yster Cult, Red Fang, and YOB. The record extended a celebrated discography that encompasses three EPs and three full-lengths, namely Zoroaster [1995], Busse Woods [1999], and Acid King III [2005], carving out a foundation back in 1993. Its no surprise strains of their style infect modern luminaries such as The Sword and Kylesa, and theyve earned a place in tomes like The Encyclopedia of Heavy Metal and the A to Z of Doom, Gothic & Stoner Metal.Forever etched in the Acid King Necronomicon, Joey and Mark announced they would each begin their own respective new chapters in late 2016.When we started this band, it was always just about playing music that we love, exclaims Lori. Joey and Mark reached a point where they wanted to focus on other aspects of their lives. I wish them the best. It was simply the start of another era.As the proverbial train kept rolling, Lori invited an old friend to join her on the road for a string of shows in 2017. Black Cobras Rafa Martinez entered the fold again after assuming bass duties once in 2007. Meanwhile, she tapped the talents of local drummer Bil Bowman behind the kit.The new lineup sounds killer, she goes on. Were carrying on the Acid Kings story.As she aims to commence writing, the future remains bright for the frontwoman. In the end, Lori keeps forging ahead as Acid Kings spirit rages on louder than ever before.Even though were doing the same thing we were at the beginning, I feel like it keeps getting better, she leaves off. Its exciting to see the impact it has on fans. A lot of people will write me and say they had a shitty day, put on our music, and it took them to another place. Many songs are written while Im riding my motorcycle. I want to transfer that feeling. Its cool to see the reaction.
