Hastings heavyweights KID KAPICHI announce their anticipated debut album THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, set for release on 5th February 2021

The album title has two meanings”, explains co-vocalist and guitarist Jack Wilson, “You hear that phrase a lot, ‘This time next year’ you’ll be doing this and playing here. Sometimes you find it hard to see what you have achieved and how far you’ve come because you’re always looking ahead to that next thing. It can be a toxic way to view life, and one that is quite often the norm. On the other hand, it’s also relevant to what’s going on right now. Everyone’s lives are on pause. We’re all waiting and hoping for this time next year

Produced in lockdown, the album is a full DIY effort with co-vocalist and guitarist Ben Beetham taking on engineering & mixing duties. It’s a record that packs a real punch, brimming with the four-piece’s identity whilst capturing the anger and frustration of modern life. Fans can expect a glimpse of the new record this Friday 16th October, when the band release new track Self-Saboteur.

We had discussed producing something ourselves one day, but I don’t think any of us thought it’d necessarily be a whole album, and our debut at that. Obviously we had 2 choices with the pandemic – wait it out, or find a way to do it ourselves. It was all mastered here in Hastings at 360 mastering”, says Ben.

 Renowned for their ferocious and euphoric live shows, on stage is where Kid Kapichi really come alive. Fronted by Jack Wilson and Ben Beetham (joint lead guitar/vocals), with the other half of their ear-shattering sound emanating from George Macdonald (drums) & Eddie Lewis (bass), they’ve shared the stage with the likes of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Fidlar and Slaves, and performed at Reading & Leeds. Seven out of ten dates on their early 2020 UK headline tour sold out almost instantly. Kid Kapichi’s name is hot on the lips of the UK live circuit and, circumstances permitting, they’ll be hitting the road in February and March next year for The Big Sexy headline tour. Full dates can be found at the bottom of the press release. 

Kid Kapichi have also seen a plethora of successes to date, with highlights including extensive support from BBC Radio 1, alongside Clash, MTV and Music Week, alongside a nomination for Best Rock Video Newcomer at the UK Music Video Awards.

Armed with a colossal debut, Kid Kapichi are set to make one hell of a mark. Watch this space for further news.
