Kicking It French Style

Published: 2004-05-10
United States band the French Kicks are venturing on up to Canada for four of the 31 dates of their North American tour. The four-piece will be playing with San Franciscan band On The Speakers for all of their Canadian stops. The last time the Kicks passed through Canada was when they opened for Hot Hot Heat along with the Unicorns.

The French Kicks will be touring in support of their latest album 'Trial of the Century' which was released on Startime records. The record was just dropped last week to eagerly awaiting indie fans. 'Trial of the Century' is the French Kicks second album, their debut being 'One Time Bells'.

Although the Kicks have been around since 1998, the band has found itself lumped in with the influx of hotly tipped new bands stationed in New York City. Just like the bands the French Kicks are lumped in with, the band harkens comparisons to many 80s groups including the Talking Heads and New Order.

Catch the French Kicks on these dates:

June 18 Vancouver – Media Club
June 27 Toronto – Horseshoe Tavern
June 28 Ottawa – TBA
June 29 Montreal – El Salon
