THE KINGS OF FROG ISLAND were formed in 2003 by Mark Buteux, Roger "Dodge" Watson (scum pups) and Mathew Bethancourt (Cherry Choke, Josiah & The Beginning). Drawing on a collective passion for cult movie soundtracks and mammoth riffs the trio headed up three albums stashed full of heavy psych rock and fragile laments to love, life and the eternal sleep. The Kings Of Frog Island 'I' 'II' and 'III' are truly rocket rides across the mountains of madness and beyond the big black.
