Three Sides of One is the thirteenth studio album by American rock band King's X, released on September 2, 2022, through Inside Out Music.[1][4] It is their first studio album in fourteen years, since 2008's XV, marking the longest gap between two studio albums in their career.


While work on Three Sides of One began as early as 2010,[5] years of slow progress had ensued due to each member of the band focusing on his respective solo or side projects. The album's progress was also sidelined by health issues involving the members, with drummer Jerry Gaskill suffering a heart attack on two occasions,[6] and bassist and vocalist Doug Pinnick diagnosed with a lymph node infection.[7][8] By 2015, Gaskill and Pinnick had recovered from their respective health issues, and in June of that year, Pinnick told Eddie Trunk that King's X was "committed to a new record" but was unsure of when the band would enter the studio to record it.[9]

In August 2018, Pinnick announced that King's X had "officially decided" to make the follow-up to XV, explaining, "We had a meeting with our manager, and we said, 'Okay. It's a go. Move forward.' So that's the next thing. He's gotta work the contract out, the logistics of where to make the record, who's gonna produce it, where we're gonna stay, how we're gonna do it, how we're gonna rehearse before, how we're gonna go there and write together, how we're gonna bring songs in — how we're gonna do it. So that's the next step. But it's getting done. And that's a good thing. Before, it was just talk for years and years and years. Now we have a commitment. I'll see how long that lasts, but I'm waiting."[10] In October of that year, it was announced that the band had signed to the Australian independent record label, Golden Robot Records, who had planned to release their thirteenth studio album in the U.S., Australia and Europe sometime in 2019;[11] within the next few years, however, the album would face myriad delays, due to COVID-related manufacturing issues as well as the slow pace of the band working on new material.[12][13][14][15]

In April 2022, it was reported that the album had been mastered,[16] and a month later, King's X had signed to Inside Out/Sony Music and announced that the then-still-untitled record would be released on September 2, 2022.[17] The band revealed Three Sides of One as the album's title on June 24, 2022, and its lead single "Let It Rain" was released on the same day.[1] The album's second single, "Give It Up", was released on July 27.[2] The third single, "All God's Children", was released on August 26.[3]


Three Sides of One reached #10 on the USA Current Album Sales Chart, #2 on USA Current Hard Music Albums Chart, #3 on USA Current Rock Albums Chart, #21 on UK Vinyl Chart, #15 on UK Physical Albums Chart, and #21 on German Albums Chart,[18] making it one of the most globally successful albums of the band's career. Classic Rock Magazine gave it a 3.5 out of 5 rating and called it "Classy, intelligent, sonically powerful stuff",[19] BraveWords gave it a 8 out 10 rating and called the band "Masters of their craft, to be sure, just as they were in 1988 at the start of their career",[20] and Sonic Perspectives gave it a 8.9 out of 10 rating and said "The marvel of Three Sides of One is you get the three unique voices and playing that converge into one glorious sound".[21] The album also came in at #88 on the 'Best Rock Albums of 2022' list on the ClassicRockHistory site.[22]

King’s X auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

King’s X ist eine amerikanische Rockband aus dem Bereich Progressive Rock, bestehend aus Ty Tabor (Gitarre, Gesang), Doug Pinnick (Gesang, Bass) und Jerry Gaskill (Schlagzeug, Gesang).


Die drei Musiker fanden bereits 1980 zusammen und versuchten sich in verschiedenen Bands, in denen sie unter anderem Coversongs von den Beatles, U2 oder The Police spielten. 1983 wurde die Band zu einem festen Trio. Unter dem Namen Sneak Preview erschien noch im selben Jahr ein gleichnamiges Studioalbum, von dem aber keiner der Beteiligten besonders begeistert war. Zwei Jahre später traf die Band den Manager und Produzenten Sam Taylor (ZZ Top), der sie davon überzeugte, sich in King’s X umzubenennen.

1988 wurde das Debüt-Album Out of the Silent Planet veröffentlicht. Der Nachfolger Gretchen Goes to Nebraska erschien 1989 und verschaffte der Band Präsenz im Radio und auf MTV. In der Folge trat das Trio unter anderem als Vorgruppe von AC/DC auf der Tour “The Razors Edge” auf. Auch die folgenden Alben erreichten die Top 100 der amerikanischen Charts. Der kommerzielle Durchbruch blieb allerdings aus und interne Probleme zerrütteten die Band Mitte der neunziger Jahre.

Im Jahr 1996 endete ihre Zusammenarbeit mit der bisherigen Plattenfirma Atlantic Records. Die drei Bandmitglieder gingen ihren jeweiligen Soloprojekten nach. Nach zwei Jahren ohne Veröffentlichung (bis auf das Best Of-Album) erschien 1998 das in Eigenregie produzierte Album Tapehead. Auch bei den folgenden CDs verzichtete die Band auf einen externen Produzenten. 2005 entstand Ogre Tones in Zusammenarbeit mit dem deutsch-amerikanischen Hard-Rock- und Metal-Spezialisten Michael Wagener, mit dem 2008 dann auch das bisher letzte Studioalbum XV aufgenommen wurde.

Im Juni 2022 wurde ein neues Studioalbum Three Sides Of One angekündigt – das erste seit 14 Jahren.[1] Die Veröffentlichung ist für den 2. September 2022 geplant.


Der charakteristische Stil von King’s X vereint Merkmale verschiedener Musikrichtungen: Der dreistimmige Gesang, der ein Beatles-artiges Flair erzeugt, wird durch Gitarrenarbeit untermalt, die Elemente des Progressive Rock, des Hard Rock sowie des Grunge und des Soul aufweist.
