“The fact that Kingswood has made such an experimental move will surprise a lot of music lovers but after a couple of listens to After Hours, Close To Dawn you’ll be very thankful that they were brave enough to go in this direction.” – Heavy Mag
“If you’re looking for the most complete work of 2017 to date: welcome.” – STACK
“As a listener, you’re really travelling through, ingesting every sound from beginning to end, which really makes the very first listen, in particular, something truly special.” – Music Feeds
Kingswood will round out 2017 in spectacular style, with a mammoth national tour that sees them landing all over this wide and wonderful land and will be the first time new tracks from their latest LP, After Hours, Close To Dawn will have been played live in some of these areas.
After Hours, Close To Dawn, was a creative evolution in sound for the gents from Kingswood. Their second release to debut in the ARIA top 10, cultivating a bunch of new radio favourites, like ‘Golden’, ‘Creepin’and ‘Atmosphere’.
It follows on from their debut album Microscopic Wars, and saw them power down a new sonic path, resulting in a change of sound that delighted and astonished fans.
After Hours, Close To Dawn was named in Rolling Stone Australia’s 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2017, as well as The Herald Sun’s Biggest New Albums in 2017, mixing an eclectic collection of retro R’n’B grooves with soaring rock & roll, fuzzy soul and space age experimentation. It’s all connected by the defining element that is the trio’s creative DNA. No matter what shape they take, these songs are still instantly recognisable as pure Kingswood.
Kingswood will join heavyweights Queens of The Stone Age, LCD Soundsystem and HAIM at Byron’s Splendour In The Grass Festival before setting off on this headline tour.
Joining the gents for all tour dates will be rambunctious rock ‘n’ rollers The Vanns, and Sydney’s rockers Dear Seattle will be along for all shows excepting north Queensland dates.
After Hours, Close To Dawn is in store now via Dew Process.
