There’s a triple dose of Kid Kapichi news this morning: a new single, a UK tour and the announcement of a brand-new album, ‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’.
The new album arrives 15 March next year via Spinefarm Records and will mark the band’s third album in as many years, which is a surefire indication of just how immediate and hard-working they’ve been.
‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’ will mark the follow-up to last year’s ‘Here’s What You Could Have Won’.
News of the album has been marked by the band’s latest single, ‘Tamagotchi’ – a playful ode to the old days, with plenty of references to the 90s.
Have a listen to it via its video below, which was even filmed on a VHS camcorder to get in the full, nostalgic spirit.
Discussing the new track and what it’s about, Kid Kapichi frontman Jack Wilson has shared:
“‘Tamagotchi’ is a song about turning 30 and feeling for the first time like your life is running away from you.”
“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself being more nostalgic about the past and the ‘good times’. This song is a homage to those times and fond memories whilst stubbornly clawing onto them.”
Speaking about the forthcoming album more broadly, the band have added:
“I know it’s a cliche, but this really is our best work ever.
“We put everything into this record, but actively decided not to stray too far from the path of ‘Here’s What You Could Have Won’, as we felt there was still more ground to be covered and honed on that vibe.
“Lyrically and musically, it’s more concise, meaningful and deliberate, which ties everything together really well; it feels like a collection of songs from the same family.”
Kid Kapichi have also announced a 2024 UK and European headline tour to celebrate the release of the forthcoming album.

Ahead of the tour, the band have spoken in exciting terms, sharing:
“We are and always have been a live band. It’s exciting to release new singles, new albums and new videos, but for us, it’s always a way to just get out there and play bigger and better shows. That’s why we started playing music and it’s why we continue to do so.
“To be announcing our biggest headline tour of our careers to date is amazing. Playing venues like Kentish Town Forum has always been an ambition, and the fact we have the incredible fanbase that we do to make all this possible is a dream come true.”
