The Kooks U.S. tour dates selling out! + performances on David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel

The Kooks

The Kooks return to the U.S. for the North American leg of their world tour starting on November 15th at the Trocadero in Philadelphia and making stops across the nation.

On the road in support of their September 13th Astralwerks Records release Junk of the Heart, the Kooks have already sold out eight shows including stops in New York, Boston, DC, Chicago, and San Francisco.

The Kooks release Junk Of The Heart

In conjunction with their U.S. tour, the band will include a free mp3 download of the track "Junk Of The Heart (Happy)" with each ticket sold online and access to an exclusive version of the digital album with an acoustic bonus track of "Rosie".

Junk of the Heart was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Belle & Sebastian), and recorded in The Sound Factory (Los Angeles) and Sarm Studios (London), the band's third album sees The Kooks solidifying their position as a bona fide album band with trademark killer hooks from their undeniable first single "Junk Of The Heart" to the Bowie-esque "Mr. Nice Guy" and the electro dub of "Runaway."

"Junk Of The Heart (Happy)" kicks off the new album with a dramatic breakbeat, and builds across acoustic guitar and warm washes of synth before collapsing into a chorus that won't soon leave you.

The Kooks will be making upcoming appearances playing the album's lead single "Junk Of The Heart (Happy)" on The Late Show with David Letterman on November 14th and Jimmy Kimmel Live! on December 12th.

The band made a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on September 21st. Watch the performance.

Junk of the Heart follows The Kooks' multi-platinum debut, Inside In/Inside Out (2006) which peaked at number two in the UK Album Charts and its platinum selling UK number one follow-up, Konk (2008).

The Kooks have sold over 2 million records globally.
