Matt and Kim, the infectious musical duo from Brooklyn, bring their high energy, house party of a show to Houston’s White Oak Music Hall tomorrow night and it is not to be missed. They’ll be “Celebrating” the one-year anniversary of Kim’s on-stage mishap at Mexico’s Vaiven Festival. During which she tore her ACL mid-performance – though continuing to perform for an impressive five songs thereafter.
The group’s current tour is visibly a reflection of months of recovery and pent-up energy waiting to be released. With personal health ranking as their highest priority, Matt and Kim made the tough decision to cancel their remaining tour dates throughout last year and allow Kim to fully recover before hitting the road again. Bracing for an expected recovery time of approximately 9 months, both members took to the studio in order to prepare a new album for fans.
Soon to be their sixth, the bands newest album, “Almost Everyday,” is dropping next month on FADER label. They promise to match, if not surpass their previous infectious hits, “Daylight,” “Get It,” and “Let’s Go.”
The band has released three singles along with accompanying videos. Each being unique, it’s tough to pinpoint how the album will pan out. Yet, the hodge-podge of releases seems uniquely characteristic of the duo and should not come as a surprise to avid fans.
Between “Forever,” which features guest vocals by Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and SWMRS, “Like I Used to Be” featuring guest vocals by Flosstradamus and Travis Hayley of Night Riots, and “Happy If You’re Happy” with no guest features, fans will have certainly remained on their toes with each new release this year.
Similarly, the upcoming live performance in Houston tomorrow night promises to cause a similar reaction from fans. It’ll likely cause all those present to break a sweat within mere minutes of the opening song. Check out the new releases and videos below.
