Kings of Dust feat. ex-Badlands bassist Greg Chaisson change band name to Atomic Kings
Kings of Dust have been busy in the last two months or so. Back in early March, the group announced that it had parted ways with original lead vocalist Michael Beck. During the beginning of April, the band revealed its new singer Ken Ronk. Now mid-way through the month of May and Kings of Dust, consisting of Ronk, bassist Greg Chaisson (Badlands, Red Dragon Cartel), guitarist Ryan McKay and drummer Jim Taft will now be going by the name of Atomic Kings.
The following message was posted on Chaisson‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“Howdy everyone, so here’s what’s up… We have been thinking about changing the name for the last month or so.
We came up with something that we really like￼, so from now on Ken, Jimi, Ryan and yours truly will be known as “ATOMIC KINGS.”
We will still be playing some of the songs from kod live, but we will be focusing on a bunch of great new Atomic Kings songs as well!￼
We are moving upward and onward and leaving all the drama in the dust!￼￼…
You can find our new Facebook page Atomic Kings.
We will be the one with the fiery crown￼￼”
