The Flower Kings have been around since 1994 – also the year when they played their first gig (20 August).
The band name was taken from Carl Von Linneus, a local botanist, who traveled worldwide,
finding and giving latin names to all flowers.
Today, almost 30 years and 15 albums later, the band has established themselves as the iconic alpha father of modern melodic prog and a great live act – always delivering the goods.
The new album named Look At You Now is a testament of persistence and tireless work
of the highest level of composition, playing, singing and production.
No other modern melodic prog band has even touched the level of all aspects like rock, jazz, cinematic, metal, electronic – of the 70’s prog rock like The Flower Kings do.
They were also one of the first bands signed to the now dominating prog label Inside Out/SONY.
A music consistent in quality and on their new album they prove their case: A collection of songs that rings with the nordic melancholy and the joyous inventions of both classical, artrock, fusion & pop.
It has been said more than twice – The Flower Kings music grows on you – over time, just like a fine wine, or a classic book.
