Kinesis follow their Mark and Lard and Lamacq Live fave, “And They Obey”, with a new single and a headline tour in June. “Forever Reeling”, already a live favourite, is released on June 16th through Independiente with two new and previously unheard B-sides.
The band, currently on tour with kindred spirits Hell is for Heroes, follow this with their own headlining tour throughout June in support of the release.
Kinesis have been putting the finishing touches to their debut LP since the release of “And They Obey” and the sold out tour that accompanied it. The LP is now finished and is scheduled for release in the autumn.
In a hectic start to the year, Kinesis also played an incendiary show at Austin’s South by South West that raised eyebrows and chequebooks in the US A & R community. The climax to the show saw broken guitars and a mini-riot courtesy of friends and Austin residents And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead.
A recent performance at the Kerrang Weekender continued to prove the band’s fearsome live reputation, with The Times describing them as one of the “highlights” of the weekend.
“Forever Reeling” shows a gentler side to Kinesis, previously known for tackling such subjects as globalisation, the rise of fascism and the co-option of self image on their singles to date.
With a very personal lyric and a sweeping chorus, this release aptly demonstrates the other side to the band’s music and worldview in addition to giving fans a pointer as to the scope of their debut LP.
Kinesis tour the UK throughout June with support from the hotly tipped Winnebago Deal and band faves Smother. Dates are:
Monday 2nd - Middlesbrough Arena
The single, “Forever Reeling” is out on Monday June 16th.
He also slapped a jet-lagged Taylor Hawkins.
