Rainbow Kitten Surprise
Elektra Records has announced the label debut release from North Carolina-based quintet Rainbow Kitten Surprise. “HOW TO: FRIEND, LOVE, FREEFALL” arrives everywhere on Friday, April 6th.

Produced by GRAMMY® Award winner Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Sleeper Agent), “HOW TO: FRIEND, LOVE, FREEFALL” is available for pre-order beginning today, with all pre-orders joined by an instant grat download of the album’s first single, “Fever Pitch.” The track is accompanied by an equally rousing companion visual, streaming now at Rainbow Kitten Surprise’s official YouTube channel.

Hailed as one of the most eclectic and exciting live acts in recent memory, Rainbow Kitten Surprise will herald “HOW TO: FRIEND, LOVE, FREEFALL” with their biggest North American headline tour thus far. “The Friend, Love, Freefall Tour” gets underway March 29th and 30th with a very special two night stand at Atlanta, GA’s Terminal West and then travels the continent through mid-May (see attached itinerary). Tickets for all announced dates go on sale this Friday, January 19th – for complete details and ticket information, please visit www.rksband.com/tour.

With their chilling harmonies, dynamic instrumentation, and introspective lyrics, Rainbow Kitten Surprise’s genre-defying sound takes equal influence from artists like Modest Mouse and Kings of Leon as it does Frank Ocean and Schoolboy Q. The Boone, NC-based band has proven an independent sensation, with over 75 million streams across digital platforms and over 45 sold out shows on their first U.S. headline tour.

2017 saw Rainbow Kitten Surprise lighting up the North American festival circuit with their always engaging live performances, including stand out sets at such events as Bonnaroo, Firefly, Shaky Knees, Hangout, Sasquatch, and Austin City Limits, among others. “Rainbow Kitten Surprise’s on stage presence and performance are second to none,” enthused The Huffington Post. “The band’s performance comes across as flurry of frenzied motion set to the sounds their own melodically guitar driven rock ’n’ roll that one simply can’t look away from.” Likewise, Paste Magazine raved how RKS frontman Sam Melo “…truly excels as a showman, selling every song with his undeniable stage presence and full-throated vocals,” and praised the band for “…earning every bit of their steadily swelling buzz.”

Rainbow Kitten Surprise is: Sam Melo (lead vocals); Darrick “Bozzy” Keller (guitar, vocals); Ethan Goodpaster (lead guitar, vocals); Charlie Holt (bass, vocals); Jess Haney (drums).
