Toronto’s most anticipated rock band, Teenage Kicks, is making their US video debut via Alternative Press with the premiere of Curse Words. The raw and infectious rock anthem comes from their album Spoils of Youth which was released this past April via Universal Music Canada. The band is also gearing up to hit the road starting September 11 in Trenton, NJ. With their latest record in tow, Teenage Kicks is poised to be the next big thing.
“We’re really thrilled to be on U.S. soil in September with a new record,” says guitarist and lead singer Peter van Helvoort. “There are a lot of great music cities on the tour and a lot of new faces we’re excited to play for. If you manage to make it through the new video for Curse Words without having a seizure you should come and see it live. If you don’t make it through the video unharmed, please don’t sue.”
Teenage Kicks’ latest album Spoils of Youth was made to make you feel. The sibling duo, brothers, Peter and Jeff Helvoort, have been playing in bands together for over a decade and have created the ultimate rock album that can only come from years of enduring countless conflicts and strife. Filled with ten tracks of heavy power rock riffs, honest lyrics and raw emotion, the finished album is the sum of multiple factors including failed relationships, lost members, bad timing/worse luck and a hard dose of reality. The result is one of the years most prolific albums.
Known for their incredible live performances, Teenage Kicks will hit the road this summer taking on the US for the first time since early 2013. Their not-to-miss tour kicks off on August 19 in Canada and makes it’s way to the US on September 11 in Trenton, NJ at the Millhill Basement.
