Ben Bridges and Dean Ashton of British punk/ska band The King Blues have become official Faith artists.

Bridges will be playing the brand's Jupiter Electro Cutaway, with Ashton using a Saturn Eclipse Electro Cutaway for all their acoustic performing duties. 

Originating as a solo project of lead singer Jonny “Itch” Fox in 2004, The King Blues later expanded into a full band outfit and released their debut album Under The Fog in 2006 to critical acclaim with their single Mr Music Man voted Best Punk Song of 2006 by BBC Radio 1.

The band went on to release three more albums – Save the World. Get the Girl (2008), Punk and Poetry (2011) and Long Live The Struggle (2012) and a host of EP’s before disbanding in 2012 as members focused on solo projects.

The band announced their reformation in late 2015 via Facebook, closely followed by the release of the EP Off With Their Heads in February 2016 and a support slot on Enter Shikari’s Mindsweep Tour.  The video for the title track, directed by Scoobius Pip, racked up over a quarter of a million views on the day it was released. 

The King Blues released their latest album The Gospel Truth on 14th April and are currently on tour throughout the UK and Europe.
