Emerging from the NY Underground scene with their sights set on the 'big picture', THE STEP KINGS are the best of all worlds. This unique 3-piece from New York City bust out on their debut ROADRUNNER release, LET'S GET IT ON, with an infectious assortment of memorable heavy melodic songs with strong backbeat and raging guitar riffs.

Formed by Bob McLynn (bass/vocals) in February of 1997, THE STEP KINGS took shape when McLynn and bandmates Fern (guitar/vocals) and Mike Watt (drums) laid down tracks for their first-ever recording, the EP SEVEN EASY STEPS. The EP received glowing reviews, earned respect at College radio and saw THE STEP KINGS play shows with bands of various genres - Everlast, Kid Rock and The Dickies to name just a few.

The band went into the studio with producer, Machine (Pitchshifter, White Zombie, Coal Chamber) to pull together their first full length recording for ROADRUNNER Records in mid 1999. The result - the band's debut effort, LET'S GET IT ON, features the anthemic stomp "Vibe", the hard-rocking "Imbalance", the jump-out-of-your-seat jam "Get It" and the infectious, funky-grooved "Right Is Wrong" among its twelve powerful tracks.

ROADRUNNER is due to release LET'S GET IT ON in February of 2000. A high-energy blend of various styles with an aggressive kick, the album straddles genre boundaries and will draw its audiences from all points in the rock world. STEP to this, and find your CD player's perfect fit!
