The Kickback ready Sorry All Over The Place, play shows (2015)

The Kickback will release its long awaited full-length debut, Sorry All Over The Place, on September 18 via Jullian Records. Consequence of Sound announced the album when they premiered “White Lodge” last month and Grantland recently featured the track as a ‘Song of the Week’ saying, “‘White Lodge’ is a witty, nervy, and melodic dagger that exudes dread without completely giving up on the possibility of transcendence.” Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs) showed the track some love as well.
Stream “White Lodge” HERE.

To proselytize fans on the music of the Chicago quartet, NoiseTrade is offering, Live At Odds, a compilation EP of live performances from the last few years that showcases The Kickback where they shine brightest, on stage. Produced by Spoon’s Jim Eno, Sorry All Over The Place is an invigorating collection that fuses ’60s bubblegum sentimentality with modern indie rock’s quirky confessionals and wiry musicality.
The Kickback will play a hometown album release show at The Hideout in Chicago on Thursday, September 17. Tickets are $5 and are on sale now at the venue’s website. The band is also offering a ticket and vinyl/CD pre-order bundle available HERE. A national tour announcement is coming soon.
The Kickback is influenced by a broad array of irreverent, cerebral, and sometimes outlandish, cultural references. They cite Hunter S. Thompson, post-post-modernism, an inflated sense of self-importance, large families, David Foster Wallace, The Wire, big sounds and then quiet sounds, David Lynch, harmonies, Michael Keaton, and entitlement, as their conceptual inspirations.
