French Kicks Ready New Album, Tour

The French Kicks are returning on April 1 digitally with a new album, Swimming, which has a real in-store release date of May 20. The release was produced and mixed entirely by the band. On Swimming, guitarist/vocalist Josh Wise commented, "On this record, we hoped to capture the joy of friends playing together in a relaxed way. We used a lot of first and second takes and tried to preserve a sense of immediacy and discovery that comes from putting things down before you really have a chance to think too hard. It's bolder, and at the same time more intimate, than anything we've done."

Excited? Yeah we are too. Peep the live dates and get ready to rock!
