King Never is an alternative rock band influenced by 80′s new wave and progressive rock, based in Sacramento, California, USA. The music features intelligent, thought provoking lyrics, and slightly left of center musical arrangements to keep it all interesting.
The band is comprised of members Matt McCabe (vocals, guitar), Karl Lane (bass), and Scott Gontjes (drums, backing vocals).
Founded in 1995, King Never begin its conceptual life as an outlet for guitarist Matt’s explorations in real-time looping techniques. Fast forward to 2012 and King Never is now a potent power trio with the addition of Karl and Scott.
