Tickets & Tour Information For Sullivan King
Meet the mad dubstep metal scientist that is Sullivan King
Sullivan King is a musician who could only have existed in the new millennium. His roots are in hard rock and metal, and his primary passion is shredding – which he now mixes with rapid-fire dubstep to create a brand of music unlike anything you've ever heard. It's like being in a crazy club where the soundtrack is a combination of frenetic garage breakbeats and skull crushing machine gun distortion guitar riffing. He's mad and brilliant, and a chance to buy or sell Sullivan King tickets on StubHub shouldn't be ignored.
An early love of all things classic metal and post hardcore
Sullivan King is actually Keaton Prescott, originally a teen who like so many others was captivated by the guitar magic of Eddie van Halen and set about learning his licks in his bedroom. Unlike kids of yesteryear, he was also exposed to post hardcore, screamo and metalcore bands like Bullet For My Valentine, Atreyu and Avenged Sevenfold, setting him on a course that encompassed the entire gamut of modern heavy metal, of course ending up a huge fan of thrash pioneering bands like Metallica and Pantera. Having immersed himself completely and pretty much mastering his chosen genre, he became an almost pro-level gamer, a realm in which he was exposed to the next big musical love of his life, EDM. The creators of the soundtracks of his favourite games became his new role models, and the many-headed musical beast that you will find with Sullivan King tickets was born.
A diabolical blend for bassheads and metalheads
At the time when Sullivan King was spending his days gaming online, the wallpaper music of the community was EDM. He became seduced by the sounds of artists like Wolfgang Gartner and Skrillex, and his next musical crush emerged in the form of dubstep. Not one to merely sit around and listen, he learned to write and perform in this genre, too, and collaborated very successfully with hybrid dubstep/drum 'n' bass outfit Dirtyphonics on the single "Vantablack", where he lent his new-found metal dubstep riffs to their more traditional sound, which was lapped up by fans and critics alike as the perfect combination of music for bassheads and metalheads. He's a relentless performer, blazing away on the guitar while manipulating insane dubstep beats to create a diabolical sonic experience that you'll have to hear to fully grasp. Luckily, Sullivan King tickets are easily available on StubHub for exactly that purpose.
