ARTIST BIO

British rock band The Kooks are a self-described “pop” band that draw inspiration from various sources to create their unique rock sound, borrowing equally from the ’60s British invasion bands and the post-punk revival of the new millennium to craft uncompromisingly catchy songs. The band have achieved massive success globally since their breakthrough into the mainstream with debut album “Inside In/Inside Out” (2006), which achieved quadruple platinum status in the UK within a year and earned the band awards for Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006 and a nomination at The Brit Awards for the single “She Moves in Her Own Way.” Sophomore album “Konk” debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, selling 65,000 copies in its first week alone. Their third studio album, entitled “Junk of the Heart,” was released on September 2011. Following sold-out shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and at SXSW earlier this year, The Kooks are excited to get back on the road again, share material from their upcoming fourth album (the first music from the band in over two years), and play for their fans long into the nights.
