Mandrone Records is pleased to announce the signing of King Bong, the instrumental Jam Band from Milan, Italy.

The label and the band will work together for the release of the sixth episode of their “Beekse Bergen” saga, details of which will be revealed in early 2021. We can anticipate that it will be a huge release with huge special guests and of course, it’s an awesome piece of musical art.

To celebrate the beginning of this relationship, Mandrone will run a limited repress of the band’s recently sold out “Sand ≈ Return“.
Originally released in 2017, this album devoid of any improvisation. The progressive and multi-layered tracks tell four stories that unfold in four different deserts around the world. The music is accompanied by the evocative artwork of Solo Macello, which will help listeners to fully immerse themselves in this journey.

Mandrone say about the band: “We have been following King Bong since the dawn of times and have been captured by their evolving sound palette and tireless creative work. This is all about the music. Pure music for greedy ears.
Excited they’ve joined the family“.

King Bong says: “We are happy to partner with the guys from the Mandrone. We’ve been doing DIY since the year of the VIII and we know these guys will help the King to have a louder voice. Plus they’re musicians, so we speak the same language.

FFO: psych / stoner / jam / avant garde
