Kero Kero Bonito have just released a brand new EP titled Civilisation I, featuring three tracks that find the trio firmly back in synthpop land after (very good) flirtations last year with indie rock and shoegaze. "If Time 'n' Place was about mixing up adolescent nostalgia, contemporary millennial malaise and the daunting near future, Civilisation I blows up that timeline to cover the ancient past of primitive man (myths, cave art and tribalism), the large-scale situation facing humanity in 2019 and the distant future, when humans have been wiped from the face of Earth," says KKB's Gus Lobban. That sounds heavy but all three tracks, including "When the Fire Comes," are danceable with a distinct '80s-meets-now vibe. You can stream the whole thing below.

KKB's fall tour with Negative Gemini kicks off Thursday (10/3) in Nashville, and hits NYC on October 10 at Brooklyn Steel (tickets). All dates are listed below.
