Orange County based rock outfit King Shelter have dropped a new track entitled “Preoccupy.”
The song is a reflection of America’s nightlife culture, with singer Taylor Hecocks saying, “What are we trying to gain? Why do we keep doing these things? Why are we intentionally hurting other individuals for a temporary preoccupation? But most importantly, how can we be better? Because we CAN do better, we just have to try.”

King Shelter describe themselves as “Salad Rock” taking influence from surf rock, alternative, grunge, and all the spaces in between. All these ingredients mixed together form King Shelter’s salad. The band also has a message that they want to bring to the world through their lyrics. “If we want things to be better, then we have to do it” said Hecocks, “Change happens by people doing things, by people disregarding classes and associations. I want people to see what is important. People are important, art is important, output is important, YOU ARE IMPORTANT.”
You can still catch King Shelter on their brief west coast "Preoccupy My Brain" tour. The dates are below.
