Matt and Kim Announce Tour Dates & Release Music Video for New Single, "Forever"
Matt and Kim have announced their new album, due out this spring on FADER Label. Along with the announcement come headlining tour dates and a music video for their new single, "Forever."
“Forever” is about darker times and the need for change and perseverance, including a rally cry chorus with the same visceral energy found in their live performances. Watch the video now below!
Matt and Kim first album in three years, co-produced by Lars Stalfors and Matt Johnson, follows a challenging year after Kim suffered an onstage injury in early 2017. During their usual high-energy performance in Mexico, Kim tore her ACL and the band was forced to take a year off from touring — the longest they have ever stayed off the road — and used the time during Kim’s extensive recovery to create one of their most personal albums to date, with writing beginning just one week after Kim’s surgery. Stay tuned for more details on the album to be announced soon.
Matt of Matt and Kim says:
"2017 was not a great year for us. Kim got real depressed during her recovery, and anyone who knows Kim (or has seen her play) knows she's such a bad-ass upbeat person so it was hard. Then of course almost everyday it seemed like there was another terrible headline. I feel since the beginning of music people have used writing songs as a form of therapy, but I’m not sure we ever really did…until 2017. With a song like “Forever” it felt really good to get stuff off our chest. While the chorus may seem harsh…I think the verses are a rally cry to pull together and just overcome all the bullsh*t."
This March, Matt and Kim will return to the road for a U.S. headlining tour. The band will perform two intimate shows in upstate New York before making stops in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival, and more, through May 2018 (full list of tour dates below).
