Marcus King sounds like he’s guzzling gasoline and spitting out fire on the live version of his new single “Lie Lie Lie,” as premiered in his latest video. The fiery track is an early arrival from his forthcoming solo album, Young Blood, due out August 26 via American Records/Republic.

King made his name as the leader of The Marcus King Band, bursting into view in the 2010s to bring the spirit of old-school Southern-fried blues rock back to the fore in modern music. But in 2020 he released his solo debut, the Grammy-nominated El Dorado, overseen by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

If “Lie Lie Lie” is any indicator, his second solo outing will be a scorcher and his upcoming run of shows sill be even hotter. The studio version of the song is a burner in its own right, but the live take King and company cooked up at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound Studio out to be preceded by a fire marshal’s warning.

Stripping down to a lean and mean power trio format, King and his rhythm section maximize the impact of the raw, rocking riff at the heart of “Lie Lie Lie.” His guitar sounds like a barely contained feral beast, and when the solo arrives, King rips into it with an almost frightening ferocity. His bandmates don’t just back him up either—they prod him forward at every step, so the intensity never lets up for a moment.
