King Cujo - Lost Inside The Landfill
Release Date: 10th February 2023
North London Three-Piece King Cujo are back with a new album Lost Inside The Landfill on the 10th February 2023. They’ve released two singles from the upcoming album ‘Down Here’ and ‘In My Vein’ in late 2022, which have now been played on over 200 radio stations across the UK, including the ‘Track of the Week’ playlist on Planet Rock. Their third and final single release before the album launch will be ‘Making No Sound’ released on 27th January. When the band last released music back in 2006, they did so against a markedly different musical backdrop, and what was at that point to be the final chapter of 6 interesting years, which took in the tragic death of band member James Norton, sharing the stage with bands such as Jet, Razorlight and The Subways, regular airplay on XFM, BBC Radio 6 and MTV, Winners of the ITV News London Unsigned Competition, Winners of the Virgin Radio Unsigned Competition, Winners of the Lee Jeans Unsigned Competition, the face of Channel 4 Music’s launch, the sound of Pepe Jeans MTV advertising, and the ‘Band with the most fans’ on Bandwagon. After calling it quits in 2007, the band (then called Cujo) would reunite just 3 times in 13 years to commemorate James until a lockdown video they made for social media stoked the fires and put them back in the studio. Lost Inside The Landfill also sees a maturity in the band’s sound. Moving forward, sometimes drastically, from the band’s early power-chord, garage-rock roots, the new album sees the band explore new sonic terrain, from the thunderously dynamic first single ‘Down Here’ to the sprawling soundscape of the anthemic Roses. Dawson, bassist Ben Keep and drummer Jamie Hook have lost none of their edge, vitality and impact since returning from the wilderness, and instead have pushed their sound to greater, more layered depths.
