A few status updates from Darren with clues from earlier in May that he can't talk about too much!!

"Tomorrow The High Kings take a road trip to hang out with someone very cool, jam some tunes and possibly record together. This could be the start of a very exciting chapter in the group. Thats all I can say for now, but as always things will be revealed if and when they are happening.: )"

"About to set off with the Dunphymeister for a roadtrip to meet the lads and play some music with.........: )."

"Today was one of the special days. Something that was mapped out for us, but took a ramp off to another road entirely and made us seriously excited, giddy and so happy to do what we do. Tomorrow? Well........if all goes to plan the future is blindingly bright for HK."

"Day 2 of our exciting little trip kicks off at 11am! : )"
