King Size - Around and Around (Re-Issue 2014)


In  2014  the  Austrian  rock  band  King  Size  celebrated  its  25 years  jubilee.  Main songwriter  and  guitarist  Tom  Proll  (a.k.a. "Major  Tom")  and  his  bandmates played  over  800  concerts worldwide  and  released  a  lot  of  music  up  to  now.  A few songs  made  it  into  the  charts  and  a  few  of  these  even  to  the top!  The  ballad "Don't  Say  Goodbye"  (#1)  and  the  rock  songs "Show  Me  The  Way"  (#2), "Machinery"  (#1)  and  "Change Your  Mind"  (#1)  were  the  most  successful releases  of  King Size.  Further  the  live  opener  "Face  To  Face"  and  of  course
"Second  Skin"  (Song  Expo  Award  2001  Winner,  Category "Rock  song  of  the year")  are  regarded  as  classics  today!   

 King Size  went  on  tour  with  bands  like Saga,  Sweet,  Uriah  Heep or Thin  Lizzy  and  shared  stages  around  the  globe  with
bands  likes  Oasis,  Toto,  Whitesnake,  Wasp,  Quiet,  Riot,  Steve Lukather  Band, Blind  Petition,  Mannfred  Mann's  Earthband, Bluespumpm,  Slade,  Gotthard, Supertramp's  Carl  Verheyen, Manowar,  Overkill,  Great  White  and  many  more on  festivals. Naturally  they  had  many  headliner  gigs  in  Europe,  Asia  and in  the US.  



In  early  2014  they  released  the  best  of  album "Dangerous  Girls  &  Beauty Queens"  which  consists  of  two CDs  with  35  songs  from  25  years  of  band history!  2014 brings  changes  too  as  Major  Tom  decided  to  collaborate  with the German  label  "NRT-­‐Records":  Fans  will  get  a  big  load  of re-­‐releases  celebrating the  25  year  jubilee  with  unreleased bonus  tracks  and  remixes!  Tom  Proll  is  working  on
two  new  solo  albums  which  will  be  released  with  NRT-­‐Records  and  a  new special  King  Size  best  of  album  with remixes,  rare  songs  and  surprises  will  be released  under  the name  "Greatests  Tits"  soon.And  who  knows maybe  there  will be  brand  new  King  Size  album  or  even  a  live  reunion  in  the
near  future?  Time  will  tell... 

The  year  2000  started  with  three samplers  before  the  release of  the  album  "Around  And  Around" was  released  in August. The  album  contained  the  chart  busters  "Machinery",  "Change Your Mind",  "Could  This  Be  Love"  and  of  course  "Second Skin".
