Kid Kapichi, the talented band from Hastings, has recently revealed exciting details about their highly anticipated upcoming album There Goes The Neighbourhood. Serving as a follow-up to their successful 2022 release Here’s What You Could Have Won, this new album is set to hit the shelves on 15th March 2024 through Spinefarm, much to the delight of their dedicated fanbase.
Jack Wilson said “I know it’s a cliche, but this really is our best work ever. We put everything into this record, but actively decided not to stray too far from the path of ‘Here’s What You Could Have Won’, as we felt there was still more ground to be covered and honed on that vibe. Lyrically and musically, it’s more concise, meaningful and deliberate, which ties everything together really well; it feels like a collection of songs from the same family.”
To give fans a taste of what’s to come, Kid Kapichi has also released their latest single “Tamagotchi”, a track that pays homage to the ’90s. The song captures the essence of the era, with its nostalgic sound and catchy melodies. Accompanying the single is a captivating music video that further enhances the ’90s vibes.
The band’s most recent song was described by frontman Jack Wilson, he said, “Tamagotchi’ is a song about turning 30 and feeling for the first time like your life is running away from you. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself being more nostalgic about the past and the ‘good times’. This song is a homage to those times and fond memories whilst stubbornly clawing onto them.”
Jack added, “Tamagotchi’ is probably one of the most fun videos we’ve ever shot, videos like these write themselves, when the imagery of the lyrics is so strong, so we didn’t mess about. We tried our best to replicate those feelings and memories we had when growing up.”
In addition to the album announcement and single release, Kid Kapichi has also confirmed an upcoming headline tour, much to the excitement of their fans. This tour will give audiences the opportunity to experience the band’s electrifying live performances and witness the new album’s songs come to life on stage. The band took to social media and said, “UK! Pre-sale for our tour starts tomorrow. Pre-order any format of ‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’ from our store to get access from 10am tomorrow morning!!”
The band added, “Speaking about that, the band added: “We are and always have been a live band. It’s exciting to release new singles, new albums and new videos, but for us, it’s always a way to just get out there and play bigger and better shows. That’s why we started playing music and it’s why we continue to do so. To be announcing our biggest headline tour of our careers to date is amazing. Playing venues like Kentish Town Forum has always been an ambition, and the fact we have the incredible fanbase that we do to make all this possible is a dream come true.”
With their unique sound and captivating energy, Kid Kapichi continues to solidify their place in the music industry. Their upcoming album promises to be a thrilling and dynamic collection of songs that showcase the band’s growth and evolution.
