KING HOBO is a rock band from Sweden, formed in 2005. Jean-Paul Gaster from CLUTCH met OPETH keyboardist Per Wiberg at the Sounds of the Underground Tour. They jammed together, and allowed other musicians to join them, with the motto of "get funky or get out". Later, they gathered at a home Wiberg rented in Sweden, and invited KAMCHATKA guitarist Thomas Andersson and Ulf Rockis Ivarsson, among others, to record an album in one week, witch resulted of the release of the self-titled album "King Hobo" (2008). After busy times with their regular bands KING HOBO was left on the bookshelf for some time until it was time to shake off the dust and record the second album "Mauga" (2019). The band is called "a triumph of musicianship drawing on all the talent at the group's disposal.
"Mauga" was release on May 31st via the CLUTCHs record label, Weathermaker Music.
Today's tune "King Blues" is taken from the latest release "Mauga", the clip is filmed live when KING HOBO playing at Sticky Fingers, Gothenburg. (February 9, 2013). Enjoy!
