KennyHoopla teams with Travis Barker for new EP, 'Blink and You'll Miss It //'
Last month, KennyHoopla unveiled new music with the rousing rock single, "YOU NEEDED A HIT //". The anthemic track served as the first of the year and followed the 2022 release of the impactful single, 'DIRTY WHITE VANS //". It also served as an indicator that something bigger was on the horizon.
Ahead of his scheduled supporting dates with Blink 182 next month, in addition to a string of European festival dates including an appearance at Reading & Leeds later this summer, KennyHoopla has confirmed his next release with the announcement of his July 7th EP, BLINK AND YOU’LL MISS IT//.
Linking with frequent collaborator Travis Barker, KennyHoopla entrusted the production of the EP to the Blink-182 drummer and previewed the potency of their combination with the latest single, "SABOTAGE //". The energized track combined with the songwriter's skilled showcase of melody make for a memorable introduction.
Kenny shared of the single, “‘SABOTAGE//’ is about becoming so self-aware as a person you end up being restricted by invisible boundaries and blurred lines. You’re becoming a toxic mixture of everyone’s viewpoint swirled inside of your head until everything is right and wrong at the same time and you end up paralyzed—not being an actual progression for anyone at all, burning everything you touch. Stretching a smile for other people’s happiness is never worth the sadness in the end.
There is a great pain that comes with trying to be a good or fair person in this current world, an even greater ego death than you most likely never even got a chance to build, but we stay as silent and pure as we can for the possibility of ‘peace’ one day. The pictures never do justice.”
In support of the three track release, Kenny will be out on the road for a series of both domestic and international dates. His tour begins with a supporting stretch on the Blink-182 North American tour and an appearance at Harley Davidson's 120th Anniversary event with Green Day and Foo Fighters. Kenny will then travel aboard for a handful of supporting dates with Limp Bizkit before a stretch of festival dates, including a late August weekend at Reading & Leeds.
