The Kickback will return this summer.
Earlier this afternoon, the Chicago rockers took over Consequence of Sound’s Instagram, where they teased the followup to their exceptional 2015 debut, Sorry All Over The Place. It’s called Weddings and Funerals and will hit shelves this summer.
Produced by Grammy-winning producer, engineer, and mixer Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello), the album was recorded at the tail-end of last year and comes fully stocked with hook-heavy tunes that singer-songwriter Billy Yost considers his best to date.
But that’s the future; for now, you can get hyped, pledge your support, and peep both their new album artwork and their tour dates below. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see them share a bill with ’90s grunge heartthrob Gavin Rossdale. No, really.
