After touring with The National this year (and collaborating with them on stage), This Is The Kit hit NPR's Tiny Desk in continued support of their very good new album Moonshine Freeze. Main member Kate Stables and her six-piece band (featuring two horn players) performed three songs off the new album, including the title track, "Bullet Proof" and "Hotter Colder." You can watch the full session below. TITK has also announced new North American tour dates for 2018.

The newly-added run hits Brooklyn on May 23 at Rough Trade. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (12/20) at noon. All dates are listed below.
