The Kooks cement their return to the top with a 13 date tour across the UK in November playing songs off their stunning new album 'Listen' which is out September 1st.
The critics are already raving about the groups re-invention with Q saying in their 4* review that they are 'back on track', the Independent that they sound 'fresh and thrilling' and the Sunday Times Culture that the 'radical, crash-and-bang R&B change of direction for Luke Pritchard and co. suits them'.
After the success of their mini tour in May, complete with a sold out show at The Electric Ballroom, the band have already thrilled with a surprise slot at Glastonbury, an electric set at Ibiza/Mallorca Rocks and an all-conquering appearance at Reading/Leeds.
