Burnside Album Details
Doomtree, No Kings
No Kings is the second all-crew release from the Doomtree collective, the prolific pack of Minnesota musicians known for their explosive live shows, their ferociously DIY ethic, and their blatant disregard for the conventions of their genre. All seven members of Doomtree have built solo careers as rappers, producers, or DJs. (Roster cheat sheet: P.O.S, Dessa, Sims, Cecil Otter, Mike Mictlan, Lazerbeak, Paper Tiger). Doomtree has earned a reputation for aggressive, innovative production that spans genre and era-borrowing from punk, classical, obscure rock, experimental, and foreign styles. Ultimately the title, No Kings, is a call for both rebellion and respect-obey no kings, seek no thrones. True to their grassroots history to date, Doomtree will tour hard in support of the album. There are no kings in Minneapolis and Doomtree continues their ascent the same way they began: one city, one club, one show at a time.
