New York State's own melodic punks, Such Gold and now Brooklyn resident, KOJI return to the UK next week, kicking off an extensive tour throughout January. Support on all shows comes from Norwich DIY-punks, Ducking Punches. Currently touring in support of their ‘Deep In A Hole’ EP, out now through Bird Attack Records, Such Gold are possibly a household name when it comes to punk rock. Having toured the world, the band have apparently built a solid fanbase on every continent, with the UK becoming a second home for them.
Koji, who emerged from the same Pennsylvania DIY punk and hardcore scene that gave birth to Title Fight, Code Orange, and Balance and Composure, is best known for his splits with mid-west post-hardcore and emo favourites, La Dispute and Into It. Over It.
The American born artist and activist, will be accompanied by a full band throughout the whole tour, before heading to mainland Europe for solo headline shows. With new music set for release through No Sleep Records, 2019 should see a reinvigorated KOJI.
Speaking on the upcoming dates Andrew 'Koji' Shiraki stated: "I have been playing shows in the UK and Europe since 2007. I've toured there with Into It. Over It., Geoff Rickly of Thursday, and Bob Nanna of Braid/Hey Mercedes, but now, I'm absolutely thrilled to be coming back to the UK with some of my best friends in music, Such Gold, before heading to the mainland again for my headline shows."
