The new album from Gathering Of Kings called “First Mission” is set for release in late January 2019!
The Album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Thomas Plec Johansson at The Panic Room in Skövde, Sweden.
All songs written by hugely talented Victor Olsson except “The Runaway”, which was written by Maurice Gibb & Robin Gibb from Bee Gees. The song is a cover of Carolas hit single from 1986. So that’s our tribute to the best swedish female singer of all time!
The amazing cover artwork was created by the German artist Markus Vesper Art.
An official video for the upcoming fourth single “Love Will Stay Alive” is available
