Irish live electro outfit King Kong Company whose “live shows are events, built from sweat soaked late-night electronic buzz and rumble” (Last Mixed Tape) and who were recently crowned the Best Irish Live Act (2016 Pure M Awards), will release their Choice Music Awards nominated album King Kong Company in Benelux on Gentlemen Recordings together with Mass Market Recordings on Friday February 24th, 2017. Preceding the album release, the single Scarity Dan will be out this Friday, January 13th 2017, coinciding with the band’s showcase performance at Altersonic (De Drie Gezusters, Grote Markt, Groningen at 00:40).
In 2016 they’ve sold out an Irish tour with a headline date at The Academy in Dublin and a headlining spot on big Irish festivals (Indiependent, Electric Picnic). While their highly acclaimed self-titled debut album, produced by Neil McLellan (of The Prodigy fame), landed in the Irish charts. 2017 brings new co-management (MCD/Live Nation), a European release for the album and some of the biggest headline shows to date, as King Kong Company are shortlisted for Festival Republic festivals.
