After an eight-year hiatus, Brooklyn-based, North Carolina-born singer and songwriter Chris Lee returns with his fourth LP. Produced by Steve Shelley and released on his new label Vampire Blues, Bury the Kings features Lee on guitar and vocals, Shelley on drums, David Nagler (Nova Social, John Wesley Harding and Jon Langford collaborator) on keyboards, and Texan brothers Aaron McClellan on bass and Joey McClellan on guitars.
The album was recorded and mixed by Ted Young at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon West studio in Hoboken, NJ.

“... when he lifts into that liquid falsetto, he’s the most beautiful human in the room.” —Chicago Reader
