Following a SOLD OUT headlining US tour that just concluded last night, The Kooks are thrilled to announce their return to North America in 2012 as special guests of Foster The People. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, December 16th.
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.”
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 and WNYC Soundcheck. Lead singer Luke Pritchard also has his own column in 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.
