The Lonely Kings return for their annual Thanksgiving show

The Lonely Kings will return to Nevada City for their annual Thanksgiving show at 9 p.m. Friday at Coopers Ale House.

The band has taken some time off from its touring schedule to record its fifth studio album with Grammy Award-winning producer Michael Rosen (Papa Roach, Rancid, Eddie Money). The sessions have been a great success and have been recorded at The Red House in Sacramento, where Papa Roach writes and records, according to the Lonely Kings.

The Kings have also enlisted the engineering skills of Andres Torres (311, Sepultura, Papa Roach) to help them craft their tones in the studio. The Lonely Kings started a West Coast tour in November and will be in the studio writing, producing and recording what they think is their best work yet. The new album is slated for release in early 2013, and the band will support the album with a tour.

The Lonely Kings have always been huge supporters of the local music scene in Nevada County, and have taken many bands from this area with them on tour around the world. The Kings always love coming back and playing for their hometown crowd. Many of the friends and fans of the band still have families in the area, and every show turns out to be a reunion of old friends and musicians. Supporting the show will be local heavy rockers 47 Miles and Downshift, which both have roots in Nevada County.

There is a $10 cover charge for Friday’s show. Guests must be 21 or older. Coopers is at 233 Commercial St, Nevada City. For information about the Lonely Kings, go to or
