Some bands talk their way into opportunities or use algorithms to feign blog hype. Others drag themselves up by the teeth.
In 2012, electrified soul-n-roll gang King Cannons arrive at their debut album, The Brightest Light, because tangled crowds of people shout their blistering choruses back to them in ramshackle band rooms. Because the bandís six members have fought poverty and hardship to stay together. Because thereís something to their songs that both reminds of rag street poets from days gone by and speaks the truth of everyday lives, heartache and boozy nights of the present.
The Brightest Light debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 2 July 2012. It has been in the Top 40 Albums for eight weeks with a highest position of #12. There is one album by King Cannons in the Top 40 Albums.
