THEM DAMN KINGS is the one man hard rock wrecking machine created by New Jersey USA native, guitarist / multi-instrumentalist / vocalist Jef Rhodes. Jef is a long time professional Front Of House engineer, and backline tech who has over two decades of international touring experience with such bands as Lacuna Coil, Opeth, Cradle of Filth, Highly Suspect, Watain, Mayhem, and others.
By enlisting former Lacuna Coil drummer Ryan Blake Folden, the pair have recorded “Rise Up”, a monster of a debut album that sounds both new and exciting – while simultaneously reminding listeners of that golden age of the early ‘90s when hard rock, metal, and grunge ruled the late night rock clubs of the world. Expect the new album "Rise Up" September 2022
THEM DAMN KINGS touring equipment as well as most of their Merch stock was destroyed Wednesday August 30th when hurricane Idalia flooded their rehearsal / storage room. "On Wednesday our rehearsal room was flooded by hurricane Idalia taking out quite a bit of our band equipment and merch as well some of our audio and lighting equipment. We would never ask for a hand out or pity and we know some people got it a lot worse than us, however if you like us, care about us or want to help support us to continue to bring kick ass music and shows, all we ask is you head over to our merch shop and grab what merch has survived. We have some patches, logo shirts and hand made hand written framed lyrics signed by Jef Rhodes, in addition to merch you can donate also. ALL orders and donations will get a signed hardcopy CD of our upcoming release once we are done recording it in the next few month. Thank you for your continued support -Jef"
