Formed in 2006, King Farook quickly earned a reputation on the Sydney scene as a must-see live act. They released their debut album “Land of the Horny” in 2007 and went on to perform at various festivals and industry awards ceremonies, and were also nominated for Urban and Artist of the Year categories at MusicOz. Proclaimed on magazine covers as the "Next Big Things", they were honoured when joined onstage by legendary drummer John Blackwell (Prince, Justin Timberlake) at the launch of their single "Zabbadouai". In 2008 they toured extensively with 76 shows in 24 weeks and won the Alternative category at MusicOz. After appearing at the 2009 MTV Awards, a short-lived breakup was announced but have triumphantly returned to the Sydney scene.
