Hastings heavyweights KID KAPICHI announce their anticipated debut album THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, set for release on 5th February 2021.
“The album title has two meanings”, explains co-vocalist and guitarist Jack Wilson, “You hear that phrase a lot, ‘This time next year’ you’ll be doing this and playing here. Sometimes you find it hard to see what you have achieved and how far you’ve come because you’re always looking ahead to that next thing. It can be a toxic way to view life, and one that is quite often the norm. On the other hand, it’s also relevant to what’s going on right now. Everyone’s lives are on pause. We’re all waiting and hoping for this time next year”
Produced in lockdown, the album is a full DIY effort with co-vocalist and guitarist Ben Beetham taking on engineering & mixing duties. It’s a record that packs a real punch, brimming with the four-piece’s identity whilst capturing the anger and frustration of modern life. Fans can expect a glimpse of the new record this Friday 16th October, when the band release new track Self-Saboteur.
“We had discussed producing something ourselves one day, but I don’t think any of us thought it’d necessarily be a whole album, and our debut at that. Obviously we had 2 choices with the pandemic – wait it out, or find a way to do it ourselves. It was all mastered here in Hastings at 360 mastering”, says Ben.
