Kero Kero Bonito announce "Swimming" 7-inch with new B-side "The Open Road"
Posted 02/25/2019
We surprise-released Kero Kero Bonito’s critically-acclaimed sophomore album Time 'n' Place last year and today the band is back with new music! To celebrate their forthcoming tour, which includes a performance at Coachella, KKB announce a new 7".

Featuring Time ‘n’ Place highlight "Swimming" as the A-Side, the 7-inch includes a brand new B-side entitled "The Open Road," which the band says “is a song about our North America tour last year, including anecdotes about the time a lorry nearly jackknifed into us in a blizzard (the first verse) and getting robbed in San Francisco (the second verse).” Unhappy moments lead to pretty cool songs though, eh?

Pre-order Swimming/The Open Road vinyl now from the Polyvinyl Store. Grab a pair of KKB goggles and a beach towel while you're at it. Tickets for the band's world tour are onsale now.
