Let’s Go Sunshine, the band’s long-awaited fifth studio album, was released August 31, 2018 viaLonely Cat/AWAL Recordings. The 15-track album is brash and bold with songs that mix melancholy and euphoria, including new single “Pamela” and first single “All The Time,” whose video has over 3.2 million views on YouTube. CLICK HERE to watch. The music displays their timeless sound in its purest form, while pushing it forward into a more expansive and mature space. Fans will find songs like the anthemic “No Pressure” and “Fractured and Dazed” just the kind of guitar-led sunshine alt-rock they fell in love with when the band broke into the mainstream. See full tracklisting below and CLICK HERE to listen to Let’s Go Sunshine, which has been streamed over 36 million times to date.

The Kooks started their career with a bang in 2006 with their unstoppable and now certified quadruple-platinum debut, Inside In/Inside Out. With four more studio albums plus a “Best of,” the four-piece band (Luke Pritchard [vocals/guitar], Peter Denton [bass], Hugh Harris [guitar] and Alexis Nunez [drums]) has acquired over 1 billion streams worldwide. Over the last decade, they’ve embarked on a number of massive world tours — including a handful of dates supportingThe Rolling Stones recently on the legendary group’s 2018 stadium tour — racking up awards and critical acclaim while maintaining a steady ascent to the top.

Of last summer’s U.S. tour dates, Beyond The Stage Magazine noted of their sold-out Brooklyn Steel show, “Sounding better than ever, The Kooks made sure there was never a dull moment during their set, keeping the audience engaged from beginning to end. The band’s spot-on production perfectly illuminated their fun, upbeat tunes” (5/15/18). Elsewhere, SF Sonic added about their San Francisco show, “The Kooks put on the exact kind of show we want to see where you forget all your problems, dance and sing for a couple hours” (6/18/18).
