The Kooks: 'People are bored of guitar bands'

'She Moves In Her Own Way' hitmakers The Kooks have revealed that their new sound was born from the fact that they became bored with the style of music they had been playing. 

During a recent interview with GigWise, the band's frontman Luke Pritchard explained that the band had grown tired of the music they were making:

"We were bored of ourselves. People are a bit bored of guitar bands, but at the end of the day, it's only the feeling behind it, and music needs that to work. Any genre works, as long as there is feeling behind it. I am inspired by the songs, and that's why it feels good."

The Kooks will release their new album, entitled 'Listen', on September 1 and it features singles 'Around Town' and 'Down'. They will perform a series of concerts around the USA later this month including Outside Lands Music Festival in California and Lollapalooza in Chicago.
