New show! North Shore! Cool venue! Great bands! Okay enough exclamation points. This will be a great, early summer show at a cool venue in Salem, along with Jenee Halstead and The Rationales. We are really excited to be playing songs off our new album, and the live show really feels like it’s working. Come…

NEW SONG(S) ALERT. We are thrilled that the excellent Vanyaland is premiering three (!) songs off of Neighbors and Strangers ahead of our hometown show tomorrow night at ONCE Somerville. There’s a slower tune, a faster tune, and a punch-yourself-in-the-face tune. Try to guess which one’s which.

Sending out more Pledge exclusives. This is getting a little ridiculous.

And sometimes we let the drummer sing… Our DC show a little while ago was such a freakin blast. Chunky Glasses was there to document it with some fantastic photos and a show review, using words like “absolutely snarling.” If you were there or if you weren’t, this is fun.

Woah, the Washington Post! A great big feature ahead of Saturday’s show at Rock And Roll Hotel. And that’s after tonight’s celebration at The Sinclair in Cambridge. Good lord we are ready to party this weekend.

Many of the songs we write could be accused of being ‘political.’ Some folks don’t like that, saying we should ‘stick to the music.’ Naseem sat down with Chunky Glasses right before the election for a perfect-for-your-next-long-drive podcast about the intersection of music and politics, and why we’ll never just stick to the music. Sorry.

We’ll pile on to the non-election-and-actually-good-news day: so psyched that the Boston Herald reviewed Another Other and said the album is “so good you’ll forget for a moment that Kingsley Flood made its name conquering club stages.” A really thoughtful review by Jed Gottlieb. “Every turn comes with something special: a ’70s punk crescendo, a…

Acoustic tunes for your Tuesday! Was psyched yesterday to ditch the band, play acoustic versions of two songs off the new album, and talk about…toilet installation, on The Circus Life Podcast. Click here for the conversation. Or if you don’t like toilets, you can download “Good Old Wind” and “Not Like This” separately.

Finally. After all this time, we’re very proud to release Another Other, our third full-length album. These thirteen songs represent a whole lot of evolution for us – as musicians, as songwriters, and as people – and we hope you like it. iTunes (digital) Kingsley Flood store (CDs)

New week, new album, NEW SONG. Click here for ‘A Ways Away,’ a piano-driven drunken mess of a song. Impose describes it painting a picture “of a world that might be screwed—but still far from being totally devoid of hope & happiness.” We’ll see.

NEW SONG. Time for something new. That’s why we’re sending you to Myspace. Yes people, it’s now actually a great music blog, and it’s premiering our title track, “Another Other.” They’re saying “it’s much more than just a boisterous barroom rocker.” In other words, there’s a story behind this one too and a very cool revelation…

IT’S HERE. Very excited that Glide Magazine is premiering “to the wolves,” the first video off our new album, in which we get kidnapped while just minding our own business and playing a tune (seriously, wtf). Check out the link for the story behind the song, and to watch the video of course. AND if…

Very pleased to share ‘Try,’ off our new album. We’re proud of this one. Head over to The Bluegrass Situation to check it out, and happy friday. #AnotherOther

Just a new snippet of a new song off a new album…

Pre-sale now available for the new album! That’s a fancy way of saying, you get to call dibs on Another Other from now, in digital, CD or vinyl form. But more importantly, when you pre-order, you get two tracks immediately. One was released on an EP last year, and the other – ‘Tricks’ – is…

Very proud to show off the cover to our new album, and to tell its story. It’s the first time we use a photograph for an album cover. This one had been kicking around my family’s basement for years. I hadn’t thought much of it – I thought it was some stock photo from a…

This pic is from the last time we played The Sinclair in Boston (or, Cambridge). We’re headed back, this time with a new album in hand (or at the merch table). We’re so damn excited to celebrate the release of Another Other (or, the new album). Tickets here: http://www.axs.com/events/313428/kingsley-flood-tickets

Very excited to share our video with you. When we do. Soon. #screenshot #tease #annoying

Our new album is called Another Other. One theme is my own upbringing as the son of immigrants, and the unclear, in-between areas so many people on the move live in. I think a lot about the journey of my own parents, and the resilience and discipline they needed to start again in a new…

We made a video. It’s coming out soon…
Jun 21, 2016
After a few months refreshing and rejuvenating, we’re coming out of the social media wilderness with big stuff to say. One, NEW ALBUM coming out this fall. Two, NEW LIVE VIDEO coming out…right now. We freaking love playing DC and are excited we got this footage from our last show there. Us being in social…

Hello people, as you know, we’ve been quiet for a while. Our communications have been less frequent, our facebook posts less witty, our snark less biting. We needed that break to refresh, and refresh we have. We’re awake now, hopped up on caffeine, and want to share many things with you. (Sign up for the monthly…

No matter what kind of genre we may or may not be, Bowie was a huge influence. Particularly on Chris, who took some time to write down some thoughts… We are all reeling at the loss of an icon, a giant, a unique soul who’s like we will surely never see again…. And the thing…

“Only Kingsley can sound like the Beatles, Clash and Johnny Cash’s backing band in a single three-minute song (or is the Sonics, Who and Pearl Jam?). Only Kingsley can release three EPs in a year and leave us wishing for more.” Thank you Boston Herald for making ‘All Night Dynamite‘ #22 on the top 215 of…

It’s a pretty fantastic thing to be able to put everything you got into something and get it right back from the crowd. Thank you everybody. Those release shows were amazing. Some cool pics coming later. For now, this. #thegoodfight (photo by Anne Dixon-Wise)

We were excited to be able to help Feeding America in its seriously important work. On this #givingtuesday, consider supporting it, any org you believe in, or just do something good. Hell, do that every Tuesday.#everytuesday #yestheycallusmisterflood

The trilogy is complete. Today we release The Good Fight, our third EP of the year. That means we released 13 songs this year, with our full-length still to come next year. That’s a little ridiculous. Stereogum says “it’s guitar-driven sing-along music with raw emotion.” The Boston Globe says “for a four song EP, The Good Fight packs a punch.” Get it here: Amazon | iTunes | CDBaby And, customized…

We’re thrilled that Stereogum is premiering our new EP The Good Fight ahead of its release on Nov. 20. “It’s guitar-driven, sing-along music, soaked with raw emotion.” Stream it here, then sing along with us at the upcoming release shows.
