Pool Kids have released a six song split with their hardcore alter-egos, POOL.
The new release features two reworked tracks from Pool Kids’ critically-acclaimed self-titled 2022 record.
The idea for a Pool Kids and POOL split originated in the run-up to the band’s first headline tour.
Its arrival comes ahead of the band’s first U.S. headline tour, which commences this Thursday, July 06 in Columbus, Ohio.
The band have said of the project:
“We are so much happier with the result than we thought we would be. It was incredibly reassuring to see what this band could create under such a time crunch and with far less planning than we are used to.
“We really ended up with something that we are proud of, back to front.”
The new release follows a strong few years for the Florida-based band, who received a shout-out from Paramore’s Hayley Williams in 2019.
Speaking recently on Rock Sound’s ‘Breakout’ series, guitarist and vocalist Christine Goodwyne said:
“I had never dreamed that we would be getting anywhere near the level of recognition that we’ve been getting when Cade [Clinton, drummer] and I started this.”
