The Kottonmouth Kings, who have sold more than two million albums and were headliners at the May Spring Gathering concert, featuring Redman & Method Man, will headline the second annual SRH Fest on Saturday.
The Placentia group’s latest work, its 11th album, “Long Live the Kings,” was released in April.
Besides the Kings, The Dirty Heads, Unwritten Law, (hed) p.e., Authority Zero, Big B, Kutt Calhoun, Slain, Crazy Town and Glasses Malone are scheduled to appear.
The event will be at the National Orange Show Events Center in San Bernardino.
The Kottonmouth Kings consist of D-Loc, Daddy X, Johnny Richter, Pakelika, DJ Bobby B, Lou Dog and newest member Dirtball.
Their sound uses elements of hip-hop, acoustic and aggressive punk-rock. In a recent interview, Brad Xavier, better known as Daddy X, said he was looking forward to the show because the location works well with the group’s fan base.
“We have such a great following in the I.E.,” Daddy X said.
“We get so much support. Los Angeles seems a little far. Our core audience is in the beach towns, the suburbs and the IE. It just seems to be the right spot for it.”
Daddy X said the group’s longevity can be attributed to a consistent work ethic.
“Everyone has gotten better in their craft in different ways, in a very organic and natural way,” he said.
“We stay within our ability range. What we do is what we do. Maybe we’re not the most seasoned and skilled vocalists but we work with what we got and we do our best.”
