The Duke & The King Release 'Nothing Gold Can Stay' on August 4th (Ramseur Records)The debut disc from The Duke and The King (aka Simone Felice and Robert 'Chicken' Burke) comes out on August 4th on Ramseur Records.

I'm expecting big things from this disc. The band got a fabulous review for their show in May at Union Hall and the London Telegraph recently called Simone Felice "the greatest singer-songwriter you've never heard of".

Here is a live video from the show at Union Hall:
