Come See Kongos Now

The band of brothers known simply as Kongos has shared stages in the States with Kings of Leon, Young The Giant and Alice In Chains. Come January, the alternative rockers will get the chance to embark on what’s being called their first countrywide U.S. headline tour.

Dylan (bass/lap slide guitar/vocals), Daniel (guitar/vocals) Jesse (drums/percussion/vocals) and Johnny (accordion/keyboard/vocals) are continuing to support their debut studio album, Lunatic, which was re-released on Epic in February. Following the success of the hit “Come With Me Now,” get ready to hear “I Want To Know” on your favorite rock station in 2015.
