King Kong Company are a band with “21st century swagger” (Irish Times), whose “live shows are events, built from sweat soaked late-night electronic buzz and rumble” (Last Mixed Tape) and who were recently crowned the Best Irish Live Act (2016 Pure M Awards).
If you’ve been to one of their shows you’ve probably shouted “getting nothing off that” at them while worshipping at the alter of Buckfast. In 2016 they’ve sold out an Irish tour with a headline date at The Academy in Dublin. While their highly acclaimed self-titled debut album, produced by Neil McLellen (of The Prodigy fame), landed in the Irish charts!
2017 brings a European release for the album and some of the biggest headline shows to date. Catch King Kong Company live, on Spotify, on YouTube and near you soon!
