Phoenix-based band KONGOS are back with their newest release, 1929, Pt. 1 – their fourth studio album, and it’s a keeper. Additionally, they’ve announced some tour dates in support of the new CD, which you can check out below.

Growing up in London and Johannesburg, they ultimately settled in their mother’s hometown of Phoenix, Arizona, where the band was officially formed in 2003. KONGOS began playing shows and recording, eventually releasing their self-titled debut album in 2007. Completely self-contained, they write, produce, engineer and mix their music as well as direct all their own music videos. 

In case you are unaware, all of the members are brothers, and music is in their blood. Their father John Kongos landed multiple chart hits in the seventies, and the boys picked up instruments at a young age. Now, they’re continuing that musical legacy.  

Give a listen to the new CD, and be sure to catch them in a city near you:
