Black Kids Hit London

US Band Storm Capital

Hotly tipped US group Black Kids have been in the country for only a week – yet have generated a hurricane of hype already.

The Jacksonville, Florida group are playing a series of UK dates, with their London date on Friday attracting 9000 requests for only 500 tickets. The group recently announced a two night stint at London’s ICA venue which sold out in under two hours, a remarkable feat for a relatively unknown group.

Black Kids are set to accompany Kate Nash on her UK, before heading back out on the rock with Scots death-country merchants Sons and Daughters.

The group have announced another London show to cope with demand – Black Kids will play the ULU venue on March 10th, and tickets will no doubt be in scarce supply.

Black Kids debut single – “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance” – will be released through Almost Gold on April 7th.
