Kero Kero Bonito sign with Polyvinyl, share single, tease deets for new album Time ‘n’ Place

This post was originally published on this site

Kero Kero Bonito have signed to Polyvinyl, which means, yes, at long last, ordering a Kero Kero Bonito CD through the mail will now net you one of the signature Airheads candies the label sends out with its merchandise. The signing is truly a match made in some sugary pop heaven.

In addition to announcing this exciting signing (and, indeed, in celebration of it), Kero Kero Bonito have dropped a new single on the world. It’s called “Make Believe,” and you can watch its James Hankins-directed video below. “Make Believe” will appear on the group’s upcoming second album, Time ‘n’ Place, about which a press release states that details “will be revealed soon.”

The single also brings with it a “digital exclusive b-side” in the form of the track “World Tour 2018,” which has previously been released in a tour announcement video, but is now more widely and conveniently available.

AND FINALLY: the Kero Kero crew are also about to launch grueling gonzo world tour. You can gaze in fear at their huge list of dates below.
