After much anticipation, acclaimed King’s X guitarist, songwriter, and co-vocalist Ty Tabor has released his 11th solo album Shades, available today via Rat Pak Records. Earlier this year, Ty set the tone with the album’s first two singles “Sister Genocide” and “Insane”, two songs that showcase Ty’s devastating guitar tones and songwriting abilities. Shades contains 10 brand new songs with three bonus tracks, and follows Ty’s successful 2018 solo offering Alien Beans. Shades is available now in various configurations at the link here:

From the opening chords of “Come Home,” it is clear that Ty Tabor’s trademark guitar tone lays the bedrock for his latest solo release Shades. Ty tackles a wide array of emotions and topics with layered harmonies, hooky pop sensibilities, and the total riffage that remains a crucial ingredient to the King’s X sound. Songs like “What You’re Thinking,” “One Drop of Water,” and “Doesn’t Linger” show Ty’s penchant for crafting tunes with tremendous melodies, while songs like “Shallow,” and “Your Fantasy,” trend heavy and exemplify why Ty is one of the most influential guitarists of the last three decades. The album’s first single is the dynamic rocker “Sister Genocide,” and latest single is “Insane”.
