Black Kids Announce Debut Album Details

Black Kids Announce Debut Album Details
For those holding their breath for Black Kids’ debut album, you can get ready to exhale now. On July 22, the hotly tipped Jacksonville quintet will release Partie Traumatic, the long-anticipated follow-up to last year’s MySpace EP, Wizard of Ahhhs. And for this one, Black Kids have gone the way of the majors, with Columbia Records handling the North American release and its subsidiary Almost Gold putting it out everywhere else a bit earlier on July 7.

The full-length was produced by Suede guitarist Bernard Butler in the UK earlier this year, and will include the four-track Wizard of Ahhhs in full, along with six additional tracks.

Black Kids are currently road-testing all the Partie Traumatic material as Cut Copy’s opening act and will soon break free on their own headlining tour around the UK and Europe. The onslaught of tour dates are listed below, but first up, the Partie Traumatic tracklisting:

1 Hit the Heartbrakes
