King Kong Company has had an incredible year. A couple of weeks after stealing the show at Electric Picnic (according to Dan Hegarty from 2FM) the band were handed the “Best Live Act 2016” award from Pure M Magazine. A week later they signed a European record deal that sees their debut album distributed in Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg by Caroline International, a subsidiary of Universal Music. The same week as signing the deal, they sold out The Academy in Dublin when more than 800 heads showed up for what turned into something of a celebratory session.

Never a shower to rest on their laurels, KKC has taken a couple of months off from their gigging routine to work on new material and a shiny new stage show for 2017. The first opportunity to get a fresh slice what KKC have to offer will be when the King Kong Crew return to The Academy in Dublin on Saturday April 8th for what is guaranteed to be another massive night. The band will be premiering some raucous and raw tunes, bringing the stage antics up a notch or two and will bring a couple of guests along to swing through the rafters with them. This will be a gig not to be missed.
