THE FLOWER KINGS - The Story

The Flower Kings is a rockgroup from Sweden that play melodic art & progressive- rock. The band started in 1994 as a result of the interest in Stolt's solo album "The Flower King", Flowerkings (TFK) quickly became somewhat of a phenomenon in the progressive rock community for everyone that once loved bands like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Zappa, UK, Utopia, Yes, ELP, King Crimson,Gentle Giant or Focus.
Building on the success of albums like "Retropolis" and the already classic double CD's "Stardust We Are" -97 and "Flower Power" -99 they toured Europe, Japan & South America and started to build a worldwide following.
Successful tours resulted in the recording of the live album, "Alive On Planet Earth", which was compiled from shows in both the USA and Japan -98 & -99. It shows the trademark sound of The Flower Kings have as much in common with Mozart, Debussy, Andrew Lloyd Webber or Miles Davis as with Pink Floyd,The Beatles, Bowie or Yes.

Same year Flower Kings signed to German label Inside Out Music in 1999. At that time Roine Stolt is keeping himself busy with numerous sideprojects around the world like TransAtlantic (alongside Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse & Pete Trewavas), plus the reunion of Swedish progrockers KAIPA, his 70's band.
Another one is Andy Tillisons band "Tangent" CD featuring "Van Der Graaf Generator" saxman David Jackson and the obscure "Flying Food Circus" project led by avant garde percussionist Hasse Bruniusson.
