King's X Enjoys Best Album Chart Debut Since 1996

Billboard.com reports that after a 12-year absence, King's X returned to The Billboard 200 last week with "XV" (InsideOut/SPV), debuting at No. 145.

Guitarist Ty Tabor commented: "I like a larger percentage of this record than I have in a very long time. There are a few that I think are undeniably some of the best stuff Doug [Pinnick] has come up with," he says.

This summer, King's X is teaming with the recently reunited Extreme for a series of dates on the Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp Tour, beginning July 29 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Taking its name from an ongoing annual camp in which fans get to play with renowned rockers, the tour will feature an opening performance by campers joined by Gilby Clarke, Elliot Easton and Glenn Hughes, among others.

"They're filming it for a reality show," Tabor says, adding that he's particularly excited to see Hughes perform each night. "But I'm looking forward to it, because I don't know what to expect."
