The Kooks Announce Fall North American Headline Tour Dates

The Kooks announce today that they will embark on a fall headline tour across North America. Kicking off October 2 in Toronto, the run brings the band through the U.S. and Canada, including stops at Terminal 5 in New York City on October 5 and The Wiltern in Los Angeles on October 19. Full routing can be found below.

This tour announcement follows the news that The Kooks‘ beloved first two albums, Inside In/Inside Out and Konk,will be reissued on vinyl on August 11. Preorder is available now on Amazon and the band’s official website. With any purchase from the band’s store, fans will receive a code allowing access to a special ticket presale on Tuesday, May 16 at 9 am PT/12 pm ET. Venue ticket presales begin Wednesday May 17, with general on-sale starting Friday May 19.

Friday also brings the release of The Best Of…So Far [preorder here], which boasts classic singles and fan favorites such as “Naïve,” “She Moves In Her Own Way,” and “Bad Habit.” The album also features two brand new songs as a taste of what’s yet to come from The Kooks. Their new single “Be Who You Are” amassed over 1.5 million streams in a matter of weeks and received praise from fans and critics alike – TIME said the track is “one of their most instantly likable tunes… there’s something refreshing about their brand of sunny, uncomplicated rock,” while NYLON called it “the ideal soundtrack to your summer highlight reel.” Watch the music video HERE.

Of the band’s journey so far, lead singer Luke Pritchard says, “It’s been the greatest pleasure to work, travel, fight, hate and love the best and most talented people I’ve met in my life. It’s the greatest job in the world and we don’t intend to stop any time soon.”
