 THE KOOKS RETURN TO THE U.S. FOR MARCH HEADLINING TOUR DATES

SPECIAL GUEST OF FOSTER THE PEOPLE TOUR IN MAY/JUNE


January 18th, 2012 — New York, NY —  After a sold-out US tour late last year, The Kooks are thrilled to announce their return to the U.S. in 2012 for a February/March headlining  tour.  Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 20th.  This will be succeeded by dates as special guests of Foster The People, of which both Central Park NYC shows have sold out five months in advance.

Their latest Astralwerks release, Junk of the Heart was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Belle & Sebastian), and recorded in The Sound Factory (Los Angeles) and Sarm Studios (London).  The band’s third album sees The Kooks solidifying their position as a bona fide album band with trademark killer hooks from their undeniable first single “Junk Of The Heart (Happy)” to the electro dub of “Runaway” and the infectious new radio single “How'd You Like That.” “Junk Of The Heart (Happy)” kicks off the new album with a dramatic breakbeat, and builds across acoustic guitar and warm washes of synth before collapsing into a chorus that won’t soon leave you.

The band recently made three TV appearances including performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,  The Late Show With David Letterman as well as Jimmy Kimmel Live!   The band also appeared on MTV’s 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield and performed on KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic as well as Soundcheck on WNYC. Lead singer Luke Pritchard also has his own column on The Huffington Post.

Junk of the Heart
follows The Kooks’ multi-platinum debut, Inside In/Inside Out (2006) which peaked at number two in the UK Album Charts and its platinum selling UK number one follow-up, Konk (2008).  The Kooks have sold over 2 million records globally.

“You will be exhausted in the best possible way by the time they leave the stage” – Buzzine.com

“ emotionally tactful, pop-rock gold – the sort of tunes that will sustain The Kooks as makers of their own mark… as their career inevitably reaches new heights.” – OC Register
