Less than a week from the release of The Best Of…So Far, a collection of their greatest hits, seminal indie rockers The Kooks announce that they will embark on a fall headline tour across North America! Kicking off October 2 in Toronto, the run brings the band through the U.S. and Canada, including stops at Terminal 5 in New York City on October 5 and The Wiltern in Los Angeles on October 19.

This tour announcement follows the news that The Kooks’ beloved first two albums, Inside In/Inside Out and Konk, will be reissued on vinyl on August 11. Preorder Inside In/Inside Out and Konk on Amazon and the band’s official website. With any purchase from the band’s store, fans will receive a code allowing access to a special ticket presale on Tuesday, May 16 at 9 am PT/12 pm ET. Venue ticket presales begin Wednesday May 17, with general on-sale starting Friday May 19.

Of the band’s journey so far, lead singer Luke Pritchard says, “It’s been the greatest pleasure to work, travel, fight, hate and love the best and most talented people I’ve met in my life. It’s the greatest job in the world and we don’t intend to stop any time soon.”

Friday also brings the release of The Best Of…So Far, which boasts classic singles and fan favorites such as “Naïve,” “She Moves In Her Own Way,” “Bad Habit,” and their new single “Be Who You Are.” Preorder here.
