KINGS OF THE SUN - Clifford Hoad. Australian and International band that have toured with KISS, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Joe Satriani and Sammy Hagar.

"Clifford’s music has been praised worldwide and he is acknowledged as one of Australia’s best drummers and showmen in the industry. He is the founding member of Kings Of The Sun and has played with the best in the business, touring internationally with KISS, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Joe Satriani and Sammy Hagar, also sharing stages with INXS, Jimmy Barnes, Rose Tattoo and The Angels (Angel City).

Clifford Hoad Drummer and Vocals and Laurie Marlow Bassist from Heaven and Black Label have now joined forces in KINGS OF THE SUN making this the strongest rhythm section around.

Laurie Marlow a founding member of Australian heavy rock band HEAVEN. Playing on the same bill as Iron Maiden, Mötley Crüe, KISS, Judas Priest, Y&T, Black Sabbath, Ian Gillan Band, Rose Tattoo.

With New guitarist Rowie Riot on lead guitar and Shar Roxxon on guitar, keys and backing vocals, adding to this a strong lineup.

Aerosmith's, Steven Tyler told Cliff that he plays the track DROP THE GUN to get himself ready to go out on stage & it has the funkiest drum fill he has ever heard.

New Album“RAZED on ROCK” released 2016 follows the success of “ Rock Til Ya Die” released 2013.

KOTS 8th Album ROCK TIL YA DIE released 2013 was groundbreaking. Clifford took on double duty as lead vocalist and drummer, producing a rock album that was claimed by many to be KOTS best yet. Launching KOTS into Sweden Rock Festival 2014, one of the largest festivals in the world, same day Black Sabbath were headlining.

Hot Metal Review 2016. “Razed on Rock” as an album is a somewhat of a greatest hits of rock. Musically, the album is drawn using a canvas containing the Bon Scott fronted AC/DC at their gnarly best (supported by John Bonham behind the drum kit) then heavily contoured, painted and textured with rock music’s “best of the best” from 1968 to 1995. As far as I could tell Clifford wrote all the music and lyrics, as well as contributed vocals and drums. One talented fella!

“Kings Of The Sun blend the classic crunch of fellow Aussies ACDC with a stripped down Aerosmith feel. Propelled by a drummer who can both thunder and punctuate where needed. Simple yet sublime”
