A QUICK DOZEN with TIM HENWOOD, PALACE OF THE KING
By Shane Pinnegar

Palace Of The King have released their third full length album, Get Right With Your Maker, through Golden Robot Records, as they get set to head to Europe.

Described as their coming of age Get Right With Your Maker was recorded in multiple sessions around touring commitments, with life on the road becoming part of the DNA of the album, lyrically and musically.
The polishing was done with mixing duties shared between Machine (Clutch/Crobot) at The Machine Shop in Texas and Liam Jenkins at Somedays Studios in NYC.

Touring constantly, Palace of the King average 100 shows a year. They’ve headlined three tours of Europe, spending 4 – 8 weeks on the road there every year since 2015. They’ve supported Airbourne in the U.K and France in front of thousands of rabid rock fans, played the USA twice in 2016 and 2017, headlined the Black Woodstock Festival in New Caledonia and circled Australia dozens of times in a tour van. They tour more than any of their peers because even though they’re a fully-fledged new millennium rock band, they also believe in the old school work ethic of the old school rock bands.

Guitarist/vocalist Tim Henwood took time out to throw down A Quick Dozen…

1. Tell us a little about your latest release. Are there any hidden nuggets the band put in the material that only diehard fans might pick up on?

There is actually a 4 minute hidden nugget at the end of the CD version only (if you catch my drift)

2. What got you into music, and can you tell us about the moment you realised you wanted to be a musician?

My Mum claims it was when I was in her belly still. She tells me I would dance around every time she was watching a band or listening to music loudly.

3. Who would be your main five musical influences?

Kiss, AC/DC, Guns n Roses, Rose Tattoo. [Editor – yep, that’s four, but that’s what Tim gave us!]

4. If you could call in any one collaborator to do a song with, who would it be?

Jimmy Page. I love what he did with the Black Cowes!

5. How would you describe your music to someone who’d never listened to you before?

Appetite-era G ‘n’ R with Deep Purple and Aerosmith combined.

6. What’s the best thing about being a musician?

Making music and touring all around the world playing it live.

7. When the band are all hanging out together, who cooks; who gets the drinks in; and who is first to crack out the acoustic guitars for a singalong?

Seany is always the first to start the camp fire jam sessions. No-one cooks so we get take away, ha!

8. If you weren’t a musician, what would be your dream job?

I don’t have any other dreams.

9. Looking back over your career, is there a single moment or situation you feel was a misstep, or you would like to be able to “do over”?

Nah. Everything negative has been a lesson for the future that helps in the long run.

10. If you were made ruler of the world, what would your first orders be?

I’d give musicians a pay rise and then abdicate to Elon Musk.

11. If you could magically go back in time and be a part of the recording sessions for any one record in history, which would you choose – and what does that record mean to you?

Jimi Hendrix Electric Ladyland. It would be beautiful to sit in with our Lord and creator and maybe even jam along on a tune. That record means everything to everything.

12. What, for you, is the meaning of life??

Community and creativity.
