"The Lonely Kings are excited to sign with Epochal Artists Records/Capital Music Group, and spread our brand of punk-rock to the masses," said bassist Emile Janicot. "We worked really hard on this record and believe this is our best musical work to date. We have a tour of the West coast that we are going to announce soon, along with a bunch of album release parties to celebrate the release of this record."

They have played on the Vans Warped Tour, and have toured across the United States and throughout Europe and the UK.

It's weird that LK released an album called End of Forever 5 years after Crowning Glory that never gets mentioned anywhere. They didn't even release it in the U.S. (it was put out on a German label) and they basically play none of the songs live, either (despite it being their best album by far). But their new stuff sounds great, too, and it's awesome to see they're actually going to be putting it out in the U.S. this time.
But yeah, I've seen them play in Sacramento and San Francisco and basically no one shows up to see them play. It's pretty sad. I still love the shit out of them and I'm glad they keep going.
