gettin' kind of kooky

If ever you've hatched the idea that a lot of contemporary English acts come utterly obsessed with their country’s rock and roll lineage, Brighton’s The Kooks certainly won't offer any kind of evidence to dissuade such a line of thinking. The Beatles, Kinks, and Stones – The Kooks have turned plenty on with their time honored influences. Of course, these boys also bring an irresistible knack for dressing such iconic bits of 60's rock in more modern threads...something that gained them plenty of notoriety when they released Inside In/Inside Out back in '06.

This Spring The Kooks will attempt to do much of the same, gearing up to coincide a North American tour with the release of their sophomore effort, Konk (Astralwerks). Presale for all dates listed below will begin on February 29th. Konk will be released April 15th. - David Pitz
