Hastings punks Kid Kapichi have signed with Spinefarm/UMG for the release of their second album, Here’s What You Could Have Won.
The sequel to 2021’s debut album This Time Next Year, the LP will arrive on September 23 and reflects “the feeling of missed opportunity”, according to frontman Jack Wilson. “Being dragged right at a crossroads when you know you should go left or yelling at the TV while someone chooses the wrong answer on a game show. It looks internally at the UK and the decisions that have been taken and how they affected us all.”
“It’s not a concept album but it does have a recurring theme,” adds guitarist Ben Beetham. “We like to write songs about current events and where the world seems to be headed. As a result, we write as close to the deadline as possible to keep it relevant.”
To coincide with the news, the band have shared new single Rob The Supermarket, which, according to Jack, “is a song about a forced tear in a difficult situation that takes matters into your own hands regardless of the consequences. It’s a question about what is morally correct at times like these, with the cost of living skyrocketing and food bank use at an all-time high.”
