KID KAPICHI have released their new single ‘Sardines’, available to stream and download in all the usual places (HERE)

“Sardines is a song about the growing unrest and frustration we are facing as a society.
People are losing their jobs and homes, whilst we continue to sail blindly in the wrong direction. As this continues, we’re reminded to work hard and tow the line, because crime doesn’t pay, but unfortunately, neither do they.”

The band recently released their hugely anticipated debut EP, ‘Sugar Tax’, which you can buy/stream, here –

Following on from their recent Radio 1 Maida Vale session, Radio 1 Jack Saunders ‘Single Of The Week’, John Kennedys Single Of The Week on Radio X and a Kerrang! Radio A-list, KID KAPICHI also had a John Kennedy Radio X session AND a Radio 1 Playlist with ‘Death Dips’.

It was in fact AT the Maida Vale session where they debuted their take on a Billie Eilish and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes mash up. This led to a personal invite from Frank himself, asking KID KAPICHI to play his birthday event at a secret location on 26th April. This was followed up with an invitation to support Frank and his band across Europe in November, which KID KAPICHI are now confirmed and announced on.

Live wise, KID KAPICHI have already played this years Reading and Leeds Festival in August, as well as other festivals including Neighbourhood in Manchester and Live at Leeds. They have also toured the UK and sold out headline shows AND supported Fidlar at Brixton Academy.
