The Kooks captivated us once again at their NYC sold-out date this June, one of a few played here and L.A. as a special fan preview to their upcoming Junk of the Heart release, coming out via Astralworks/Capitol Records on September 13. They’ll return for their first full U.S. tour in three years this November.

The band, always a generous bunch, will include a free mp3 download of the track “Junk of the Heart (Happy)” with each ticket sold online. Fans buying tickets to fall U.S. dates will also have the chance to pre-order an exclusive version of the new album Junk of the Heart, including a bonus track, an acoustic version of “Rosie”.

After being wowed once again by the Kooks at their June Bowery Ballroom show, we said, “Their store of well-crafted pop songs seems limitless, given the fact that their newest, “Junk Of The Heart(Happy)”, “Is It Me,” and “How’d You Like That” sounded bigger than the surefire hits.”

No wonder the Kooks have sold over 2 million records globally.
