BECOMING MORE LIKE ALFIE!

Not only that, they've covered Tom Petty and Joy Division...

KINGS OF CONVENIENCE have collaborated with fellow indie minstrels ALFIE on a track that can be found on their new EP, ‘FAILURE’.

The version of the title track combining the Norwegian duo and the Manchester five-piece can be found as a B-side on the single, released on July 2. Cover versions of Tom Petty’s ‘Freefallin” and Joy Division‘s ‘The Eternal’ are also included on the release.

Kings Of Convenience are also set to release a limited 12” vinyl version of album track ‘I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From’ on June 16. The track has been remixed by Norwegian House producers Royskopp.

The Kings kick off a brief UK tour at Portmouth’s Wedgewood Rooms on June 24, moving to Manchester Live Cafe (25), Leeds City Varities (26) and London Union Chapel (27).
