‘KONK’, the Kooks’ sophomore album, was released April 15th in the US, debuting at #41 on the Billboard charts, and in the top 10 on the iTunes charts. ‘Always Where I Need To Be’, the first single off ‘KONK’, continues to climb the Alternative radio charts and is currently at #21. Their success at radio so far led to a coveted slot on Live 105’s BFD Festival in San Francisco earlier this month.
