Published Feb 12, 2014The past few years have been busy ones one Toronto's Teenage Kicks, who have issued a couple of EPs, started a singles club, and shared a stream of videos and live clips. Now, they've finally announced their debut full-length. Spoils of Youth will arrive on April 29 through Rezolute Music/Universal Music Canada.
Teenage Kicks brothers Peter and Jeff van Helvoort have been playing in bands together for the past decade. According to a press release, "Spoils of Youth represents the van Helvoorts' continued aspiration to produce music that is true to themselves and to the music they've always loved; songs rife with honesty, integrity, and truth."
The album's lead single is the crunchy rock tune "Digging Up Old Bones." A Valentine's Day-themed lyric video is below.
Speaking of Valentine's Day, the band will perform on February 14 at Toronto's Bovine Sex Club, where they will showcase some of the new material from Spoils of Youth. They will also play at Van Gogh's Ear in Guelph on March 7.
In addition to "Digging Up Old Bones," Spoils of Youth includes the recently released track "Houdini." A video for that song is below.
