I’m super excited about this new album!!! I’ve co-written and recorded these songs with VERY talented people and once again, Jacob Hansen will put his ‘Sonic Mark’ on them in Denmark with his gift of mix, co-production and mastering.

I take pride in the music I create and because you ‘the fans’ have allowed me to explore this process over and over again, I wanted to give you the opportunity to be part of my process this time.

Pre-Order ANY of these Exclusive packages on PledgeMusic (while the campaign is active) and get a Digital Download of my new album. PLUS ‘VIP ACCESS’ to Early Song Reveals, Album Inspiration details, Behind the Scenes video updates, video co-writer introductions, Listening Sessions and much more….

I don’t have an official release date set as of yet, but the album and all exclusive goodies will be in your hands by early fall of 2018.

Please feel free to SHARE the campaign, let’s blow this thing UP!
TOGETHER we will make this happen in a BIG way!


Is there anything better than infusing positive messages with rock & metal and creating powerful music for the Mind & Soul?

The New LANCE KING album is a full scale INTERNATIONAL effort by 9 individuals to bring this new ‘CELESTIAL METAL’ album to the world.

Support this independent release…. the sooner the goal is reached, the sooner it can be released.


ABOUT THE NEW LANCE KING ALBUM: “REPROGRAM”
Lance challenges the very fabric of who we are as humans with ‘ReProgram’!

Remember when you were a child and there was magic in the world? You believed with vivid imagination and a knowing that anything was possible…. Wouldn’t it be amazing to get that back?

From GENERATION to generation… we’ve lived by RULES… rules passed down by our ancestors, Rules…. that fed us definitions for every aspect of our existence on who to be, what to do, how to live. Rules on Culture, Religion, Sexuality, Education, Gender, Family, Career…. on Identity! Some of these beliefs have progressed over time…. but many do us more harm than good…. holding us back from our true potential, our true self. Indoctrinated onto us…. programmed into us by our Parents, Leaders, Educational Systems, Society, the Media, and Politicians. Some have ‘good intentions’…. others ‘ulterior motives’. But what if you gave yourself permission to question everything you’ve ever believed? Eliminating the rules that have held you back…. programming new ones that build you up, and redefining your own ideas of Happiness, Career, Success, Love, and Fulfillment!

It’s never too late to CHANGE the RULES that have held you back and Live the Life that is truly yours…. an extraordinary life! It’s time to question EVERYTHING and begin to ReProgram!


A personal note from Lance about his new album:

“With the addition of two new co-writing partners, there are some new musical elements in this one that I think you’ll really enjoy. My general feeling is the songs flow better though they are more progressive…. they feel like songs rather than compositions, which is always my goal, I loved the band QUEEN because they were so good at that.

Originally I set out to write a happy metal album thinking ‘…the world needs more happy music…. especially ’heavy’ happy music!’ BUT that isn’t what we came up with…. The lyrics are moody and deal with the common struggle of being stuck in an unhappy life by our own conditioning.

The WHO – I’ve co-written and recorded this album with a few beautiful souls that are also exceptionally talented people:

Kim Olesen – (Anubis Gate) *Guitar & Keys – Location : Denmark
-Kim always knows just what’s right for the song, he never overplays…. it’s all about flow and the vibe and he loves layers. I sent him a finished vocal melody and he wrote around it on the title track…. first time I’ve done it that way, I love the result.

Rich Hinks – (Annihilator / Aeon Zen) *Bass, Guitar and Keys – Location: UK
– Rich is an extreme talent, multi-instrumentalist, and a great producer in his own right, I was excited to write with him, after you hear what we came up with, I think you’ll know why!

Markus Sigfridsson – (Darkwater/Harmony) *Guitar & Keys – Location: Sweden
– Markus is an excellent guitarist & song writer, I’ve been a fan of his bands for sometime and wanted to write with him again on this album because I love the songs we wrote together on the last one.

Matt Hodsdon – (Chaos Frame) *Guitar & Keys – Location: USA
– Matt blew me away when I first heard his band ‘Chaos Frame’, I was curious what we would come up with together…. I’m VERY happy with the result….

Morten Gade Sørensen (Pyramaze/Anubis Gate) *Drums – Location: Denmark
– Morten is without a doubt the best drummer I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing with, my absolutely first choice…. bringing both technicality and a really nice groove to the tracks!

Fred Colombo (Spheric Universe Experience) *Keys – Location: France
– I love Fred’s ability to create a mood with anything he plays, he was an obvious
choice to have back again.

Mattias IA Eklundh ( Freak Kitchen) *Guitar solo – Location: Sweden
– What can I say here…. Mattias just makes me go WOW…. that was cool, I’m so glad he agreed to rip a solo on one of my tracks.


WHY AM I CROWDFUNDING?!

Life has been very busy, lot’s of personal family drama’s over the last 7 years that have held me back from getting this new album out. Still I found the time and the passion to make it happen, but if truth be told, the last album didn’t make me much money to put toward this one. I can attribute that to a few things;

1) I was giving a portion of it to a charity I’m passionate about….
2) I made it available at close to half price of most new releases….
3) Over the last 7 years many more people are streaming music rather than
downloading or buying CD’s.
4) I’m completely INDIE again…because of the changing trends in consuming
music many (mostly streaming these days) Many records labels have either
gone out of business, or are only releasing a few releases a year.
This time around is the first time since 1997 that I have not been signed to
other labels around the world in different territories that pay advances.

All in all, I think the last album went really well, it was a fantastic experience, but I learned if I want to make a new album every couple of years (or maybe even every year…) I’m going to have to get more support (BEFORE) I release it to the world.

Just the studio recording, mixing and mastering fee’s are over my campaign goal and that doesn’t include, CD’s, t-shirts, or any of the many other cool items that I’ve made available in this crowdfunding. It also doesn’t cover any of the video costs that I very much want to do this time around. In fact, this crowdfunding is primarily about the video expenses. I want to do ONE SUPER COOL VIDEO.

I also want to put out a lyric video for every track on the album! This is what this crowdfunding is about. I will need to promote the main video which will be very expensive also. If I was going to raise funds for all the expenses of releasing this new album, my goal would be $50,000 +

I’m only asking for $20K – THANK YOU for being a part of this movement to get my new music out to the world! YOU MY FRIENDS ROCK!
