London school friends turned raucous indie-punk band King Nun are making waves off the back of their second album, Lamb, from Marshall Records. Since the record's release late last year, the band have had singles such as 'Selfish' and 'Golden Age' played by Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 and John Kennedy on Radio X, while NME described their music as 'brutal and brilliant', and DIY cited theirs as 'a sound to be reckoned with'.

The five-piece have a well-established reputation as a ferocious live band, with Rolling Stone naming them 'Best Rock Newcomers' at Bonnaroo. King Nun have also toured extensively across the UK, Europe and the US, both as headliners and supporting a wide array of artists including Foo Fighters, Black Flag and Nothing But Thieves.

With their trademark blend of energetic punk, bittersweet indie and sharp pop melody, King Nun are forging a unique and infectious sound and a rapidly growing cult following.

The band are Theo Polyzoides (vocals and guitar), James Upton (guitar), Ethan SY (guitar), Nathan Gane (bass) and Caius SY (drums).
