King Khan & BBQ Show Return

King Khan & BBQ Show Announce New Album, First In Three Years
Invisible Girl Out In November

King Khan & BBQ Show
It's hard to tell if the King Khan & BBQ Show is more famous than they are infamous. Since the 2004 release of their first self-titled debut, the King Khan & BBQ Show has earned itself a place in rock 'n' roll history by inspiring both insanity (fervor for the band's live show has occasionally manifested itself as live sex acts) and critical reverence.

The King Khan & BBQ show's long-awaited third full-length album, Invisible Girl, will disappoint neither the band's critical admirers nor their devoted cult following. Invisible Girl marks a return to the trade-mark doo-wop-laced, anthemic garage rock that earned the band both their fame and infamy. The album exhibits the band's effortless fluency in rock 'n' roll traditions, and also, includes "a song so vile that it cannot even be mentioned," notes Mark Sultan (otherwise known as BBQ).

KK & BBQ decided to remain true to their roots and chose L.A.'s In The Red Records to release their new record the U.S. King Khan & BBQ Show may be rock 'n' roll's fiercest antiheroes, but they are also some of its hardest-working ambassadors, touring from Europe to Brazil to Israel and embarking on a 31-date North American tour this fall.
