Album Premiere: The UK’s, “American Way Of Death”

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Kansas City rabble-rousers The UK’s.

Aside from a recent single, the quartet hasn’t released new material since their debut album – Bad Seed – in 2016. Well, that all changes now with American Way Of Death, and we have the exclusive premiere!

The UK’s sophomore EP is an arguably more reigned in sound than previous work. Opening the record with the radio-ready “Why Don’t You Go”, the four minute rock number is the only warning you’ll get for what you’re about to dive into. Pulling from classic rock, as well as contemporary, influences, the UK’s boast a well-rounded sound from front to back. Any one of these five tracks could be featured as a single. The UK’s really hit a stride on American Way Of Death, and the EP opens up a new door for what’s next for the band.

If you happen to be in KC tomorrow (Nov. 17th), catch the UK’s album release show with Shoebox Money, The Way Way Back, and Kid Computer at the Rino.
