Story by Jack Foley
AFTER the premiere of The Kooks’ new single Down as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record last week, and a sensational turn at SXSW playing three packed shows, the band have now announced four UK shows this May.
Kicking off in Glasgow on May 6 and taking in Manchester, Birmingham and London’s Electric Ballroom on May 8, this run of shows will give fans their first taste of The Kooks new album, new sound and new direction.
The Kooks tour dates are (all May 2014):
6 – Glasgow, ABC
7 – Manchester, Ritz
8 – London, Electric Ballroom
9 – Birmingham, Institute
Tickets priced at £17.50 (London is £20) and can be purchased on Thursday, March 20 at 9am.
Produced by Inflo and co-produced by Luke, explosive new single Down is released on April 20, 2014 and is like nothing The Kooks have ever done before, with its looped hooks and crazy percussion. It is the first glimpse of a new album released this summer.
The Kooks are: Luke Pritchard – vocals and guitar, guitarist Hugh Harris, bassist Pete Denton and drummer Alexis Nunez.
