KING’S X GUITARIST TY TABOR RELEASES NEW SINGLE "INSANE"

On the heels of his blistering first single from the upcoming album Shades, acclaimed King’s X guitarist, songwriter, and co-vocalist Ty Tabor has released the album’s latest single “Insane.” The hard-hitting track features a devastating solo from Ty amongst thick layers of guitars and a tight rhythm section. “Insane” builds upon the brooding and intense atmosphere of first single “Sister Genocide,” laying the bedrock of Ty’s forthcoming solo offering out on March 4. The static video for “Insane” can be seen here:

Ty says, “‘Insane’ is a song about everything around you as things seem to go completely insane. It’s easy to feel that way these days. It’s also one of the most straight-ahead rockers on the album.”

Ty is set to release his 11th solo album, Shades, on March 4 via Rat Pak Records. The upcoming album is Ty’s first solo album of new material since 2018’s Alien BeansShades is available for preorder in various configurations including CD, vinyl, and digital download at the link here: https://smarturl.it/TyTabor.


From the opening chords of “Come Home,” it is clear that Ty Tabor’s trademark guitar tone lays the bedrock for his latest solo release Shades. Ty tackles a wide array of emotions and topics with layered harmonies, hooky pop sensibilities, and the total riffage that remains a crucial ingredient to the King’s X sound. Songs like “What You’re Thinking,” “One Drop of Water,” and “Doesn’t Linger” show Ty’s penchant for crafting tunes with tremendous melodies, while songs like “Shallow,” and “Your Fantasy,” trend heavy and exemplify why Ty is one of the most influential guitarists of the last three decades. The album’s first single is the dynamic rocker “Sister Genocide,” which can be found here: https://youtu.be/loT8LKPsbTI. Check out Ty’s latest single “Insane” here: https://youtu.be/btZhxkA_ato.
