The Kooks Australian Tour 2012

The Kooks will return to Australia in January for their first tour in three years, performing in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

The Kooks' third album 'Junk Of The Heart' released in September, was written by The Kooks', produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Air, Belle and Sebastian), and recorded in The Sound Factory (Los Angeles) and Sarm Studios (London). The band's third album sees them consolidating their position as a bona fide album band with trademark breeziness and catchy hooks.

In a press release, frontman Luke Pritchard said, " It's upbeat; an album to play in the sun. What we really wanted to do was build a proper, full album. Something you can listen to from front to back. We're an album band and this is a journey you come on with us.

'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. The 2006 record spawned the top ten singles 'Naive' and 'She Moves in Her Own Way,' as well as establishing the band as one of the brightest new acts in British guitar music.

Having sold out two previous Australian tours, including a sell-out night at the Hordern Pavilion Sydney, The Kooks are eager to play to Australian audiences once more.

Fans will no doubt be hoping to hear classic songs from the back catalogue, as well as new material, when The Kooks arrive in Australia.
