Internet Friends were invited by The Libertines to Margate outside London to record The Albion Rooms Sessions First single from the planned EP; Kool Kids is released Dec. 1st on Icons Creating Evil Art
Fresh from supporting The Libertines on the Nordic leg of their 2022 tour, Internet Friends released their debut album “Dressed To Kill” in the spring of 2023 and following that release they were invited by The Libertines to record an EP in the studio at The Albion Rooms in Margate and play live at the venue. (they also played a show at The Sebright Arms in London on this trip). The recordings from those sessions are finally ready to be heard by the World. First taste is the single 'Kool Kids', released December 1st 2023 on Icons Creating Evil Art.
The band comment on the trip and the resulting The Albion Rooms Sessions EP:
- "We opened up for The Libertines in 2022 and it was everything we hoped it to be. After we played together they invited us to come record in their studio in England. We played everything live, our friend Albin played bass, left handed Noel played guitar upside down and we re-recorded an old IF favorite from way back in a true punk fashion. A Live EP. From the best band since Black Eyed Peas, to all our beautiful and sexy fans. "
The album “Dressed To Kill” from Internet Friends featured the previously released title track as well as the singles How D'You Like Me Now? and Rice Krispies, and was very well received. The support for the band came in strong and they landed spins on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1’s Future Alternative with Nels Hylton and BBC Radio 1’s Indie Show with Jack Saunders and even charting on Amazing Radio and ESNS Emerging European Chart. Speaking on their new album, Internet Friends said:
- "It's time to fall in love with an album again. It's time to start fan accounts on all social media. The kind of debut that comes every ten years. Internet Friends release a collection of songs that will fundamentally shake up the indie music scene. Dressed To Kill is the granddaddy of debut albums and it's now your turn to take over and care for this record.”
Internet Friends release Kool Kids (The Albion Rooms Sessions) Dec. 1st on Icons Creating Evil Art, then go on a short tour in Sweden together with Lazy Queen (NO) and Tribe Friday under the flag 'Let's All be Evil Tour'. Sink your teeth into Internet Friends now. You’ll only get hungry later.
