September 2013 – we are back in the studio this autumn recording our 2nd album, so will be fairly quiet on the gigs front – but will come bursting back onto the scene in early 2014!
July 2013 – after a couple of awesome months gigging (we’ve played loads of diverse venues, from rooftops and packed clubs to radio acoustic sets) we’re pleased to welcome new guitarist extraordinaire Harry to the fold. We’re also playing loads of London shows and festivals over the next couple of months and have just released our charity single ‘The Limits We Set’ for Teenage Cancer Trust through the fantastic organisation Specialized. Please do download it here and spread the word as every single penny goes to this really worthy and hardworking charity. And we have just had another awesome review here too!
April 2013 – Great news as National Hero has reached No 1 in both the Emerging Icons and Strummerville charts and our track ‘The Limits We Set’ recorded for Specialized 2 has been used as the official theme for the UK Comedy Festival Udderbelly! We are having a single release party at the Barfly on May 3rd for our new single ‘Forever Young’ and have been confirmed already for a few summer festivals, so keep watching this space for more news as it happens! And we had a great review from Music Junkie Press in the States so check it here!
March 2013 – so we have just finished recording a cover in our own inimitable style of an awesome track written by the Beat called ‘The Limits We Set’ for an amazing organisation – the Specialized 2 album supporting Teenage Cancer Trust. This album should be out in April so please do support the cause and follow Specialized through Facebook.
February 2013 – This month kicks off with the release of the first single from our brand new EP – NATIONAL HERO. Big things in the pipeline, including recent celeb endorsements, so keep up to date with all the news as it happens on our Twitter feed!
January 2013– Happy New Year one and all – we hope that it brings you all and more! We’re extremely pleased to welcome the incredibly talented drum maniac Jase into the Kicks, and have just shot two new vids for singles from the EP, so will be announcing release and tour dates shortly – keep yer eyes peeled.
November 2012 – After a few unfortunate, yet necessary, line up changes over the summer we have just finished recording a new EP and will be putting 2 singles out and touring again very shortly
May 2012– Thanks so much to all our new friends from across the pond – what an awesome tour! We’ll hopefully be out with you again in 2013!
March 2012 – YES, IT’S OFFICIAL – we are coming to the United States of America and Canada!!! After an awesome radio campaign by our friends Planetary we have a great booking agent on board and are going to be out from March 3rd – 27th, starting in NYC, moving down to Austin and then to Canada for Canadian Music Week! We have also been doing pretty damn well in some UK indie charts with our new friends at Strummerville and Young Rebel AND on top of all this we have already demoed 8 new tracks for our 2nd album. Tally Ho!
