#481: Catching Up With...Queen Kwong

Having been discovered by Trent Reznor, LA’s Queen Kwong, otherwise known as CarrĂ© Callaway, is fast making a name for herself as one of the most visceral performers around. The band, whose members include Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland on guitar as well as former members of Marylin Manson and AWOL Nation, performed a sold out four show residency in London earlier in the year, which, when coupled with regular airplay on Radio 1, has allowed the band to build a solid reputation even before they’ve released an album. All that looks set to change change however, as Queen Kwong are scheduled to release their debut album Get A Witness on the 28th August…’ as well as appearances at this year’s Reading and Leeds festival in support of the release.
