Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds Announce Australian Supports

In November, Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds announced their return to Australia this April. The anticipation is building as they unveil a delectable lineup of local musical talents set to accompany them on their journey.

Joined by the likes of Kim Salmon’s Smoked Salmon, Zig Zag, Little Things, Loose Fit, Kim Salmon, The Stress Of Leisure & Arugula and the cherry on top of a brand new album, being played live for the first time on this tour for Australian fans, it’s not one you wanna miss!

With one of the most enviable rock n’ roll resumes in existence, Kid Congo Powers was a founding member of cowpunk blues outfit The Gun Club, guitarist for legendary psycho-billy purveyors The Cramps and and Australia’s own, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

Following the 2022 release of his long-awaited and critically acclaimed memoir, ‘Some New Kind of Kick’, Kid Congo makes his fourth trip to Australia with long-term cohorts The Pink Monkey Birds in support of their latest album, ‘That Delicious Vice’ out in April 19 via In the Red Records. Recorded in the scorching summer of 2023 in Tucson Arizona at Jim Water’s Waterworks studio, the band were thrilled to collaborate with LA Chicana punk icon, singer of The Bags and author, Alice Bag on songs “Wicked World” and “A Beast, a Priest”.

‘That Delicious Vice’ is Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds fifth full-length studio album and marks the band’s first as a three piece. However, for this Australian run, they will be a four-piece thanks to a surprise secret weapon, who will be revealed when they join the first show in Melbourne. You will have to come along to find out!
