Middle Kids Share New Song “On My Knees”

Today, Middle Kids share a new song and video, “On My Knees.” This is the second track from the Australian trio’s eagerly awaited debut album, packed with as much melodic power and lyrical charm as its predecessor “Mistake“.

Middle Kids offered some insight into the new song, stating “‘On My Knees’ is about rejecting the value system of the individual as the prime unit of society. It’s also about how suffering and disappointment can help change our perspective in a healthy way. When we stop focus on ‘winning’ and can submit to something bigger, or to each other, we are better people.”

The band will kick off an extensive U.S. tour this June, including festival plays at Governors Ball in New York City and Firefly Music Festival in Dover. The full run is detailed below and tickets are on sale now.

Middle Kids made a powerful debut last year with the release of their internationally acclaimed self-titled EP, featuring hit singles “Edge of Town” and “Your Love.” The band dazzled at several SXSW showcases, sold-out Baby’s All Right in New York City, performed sessions for KCRWKEXP and Sirius XMU and made their television debut on Conan. In addition to their headlining successes, Middle Kids supported legendary acts like Ryan Adams and The War On Drugs.

Lost Friends is available to pre-order now on limited pressing purple vinyl housed in gatefold jacket, gatefold CD w/ 6-page booklet, and digital download, via iTunes and Domino Mart.
