“Though they’re driven by punk’s unifying spirit, they refuse to settle for doing what everyone else is, throwing heaps of their rough-and-ready charisma into every blistering track, each of which is primed to inspire a great time”

“A bright, cheerful beacon of hope in an otherwise bleak landscape”
– Upset

“Diverse, humorous and very much rooted in a DIY spirit… the record is one which the band can be proud of. 8/10” 
– Gigwise 

Following the success of their debut album, Hastings’ finest Kid Kapichi reveal their blistering new video for Violence. “It’s a song that challenges the actions of people in power and the hired goons used to silence the angry disenfranchised masses”, explains co-vocalist and guitarist Jack Wilson, “It asks the question, If violence is never the answer, then why do the people spouting the above rhetoric, only deal with issues with exactly that. When is enough enough? And when do we fight fire with fire? The song is more relevant than ever in the current climate with peaceful protests being eliminated and police brutality at an all time high, or at least much more public than ever

Kid Kapichi released their colossal debut album This Time Next Year in February, which landed at #6 in the UK Independent album chart. The album was a full DIY effort, created in lockdown with Ben Beetham (co-vocals & guitars) taking on engineering & mixing duties, garnering support from BBC Radio 1, Radio X, Kerang! Radio, NME, Upset, Rock Sound, Kerrang! andGigwise. The record packs a real punch, brimming with the four-piece’s identity whilst capturing the anger and frustration of the past year. “It’s a collection of songs that encapsulate the general feelings we have had of the monotony of modern life and of the unfairness in the world right now”, explains Jack, “We tried not to shy away from it and instead face it head on. In classic Kapichi style, it goes from tongue in cheek at times to a sobering look in the mirror at others. Either way there is something for everyone no matter what walk of life or take on the world

Renowned for their ferocious and euphoric live shows, on stage is where Kid Kapichi really come alive. Fronted by Jack Wilson and Ben Beetham, 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 RattlesnakesFidlar and Slaves, and performed at Reading & Leeds. The four-piece will be taking to the road for some album release shows in May, all of which are sold out, with summer pitstops at 2000 Trees, Leopallooza, Standon Calling and Torquay Burn it Down festivals, before a full UK headline tour in November.
