Sean is an amazing bassist and has been instrumental in many of the tracks on the forthcoming debut album. However, Sean has elected to pursue other musical opportunities. “Sean is a true talent. We wish him the very best in every way!” says Terry Chism, lead vocalist/keyboardist.
In replacing Sean, Walking With Kings has tabbed Simon Farmery as the new bassist. Simon has played with bands Pride and Furyon and has had the privilege to tour all over Europe with some of the biggest bands in Rock. He has also recently performed in Fozzy alongside our own Rich Ward and Frank Fontsere at the “Rockstar UPROAR Festival”, which featured other great bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Seether and Bullet For My Valentine… just to name a few.
“We just completed filming the ‘Leap of Faith’ video with Simon. Working with him on the video was an awesome experience. Soon, everyone will see the kind of energy and talent this Englishman brings to the band and to the stage.”, says Terry, “He’s made his place in the King’s family, plus his British accent keeps us entertained. Feels like we’ve been playing together for years.”.

Ok, so people keep asking me... where did you get the name "Walking With Kings"? Honestly, this was one of several names we considered. As Rich and I were planning the project, he called me up one morning and asked me to think about the "WWK" name and how he felt it could be a great band name.
Just so happens that there's a well-known phrase from an old poem by Rudyard Kipling that says, "walk with kings, nor lose the common touch". The entire poem is a list of achievements that, if met, one can inherit the earth (and become a true man). The phrase, "walk with kings, nor lose the common touch", refers to one's ability to reach or relate to people, no matter the class or race.
Considering what we are about, I still say Rich is right... it's a pretty good name for this band. Stay tuned for more!
