State Senate

Aug 22, 2018

I love when people say “stop singing about politics, stick to the music!” Our songs have always been political; I don’t really know how to write otherwise. So it’s only fitting that we embrace this dynamic and put our money where our mic is. On Sept. 7, we are supporting a candidate for Massachusetts State Senate by…

Podcast

Aug 04, 2018

This is Ted. Ted has a podcast called The Tour, and he invited me on. I thought it would be a fun thing to do, and had no idea Ted would ask some of the best questions I’ve ever been asked as a musician. The end product paints a full, vivid picture of our band from…

Bow

Jul 16, 2018

It’s been a little more than a month since Neighbors & Strangers came out, and screw it, we’re taking a bow. We’re proud of this one, and are thrilled that Pete Chianca of Gatehouse Media wrote a thorough, thoughtful review. What a thrill when a great writer spends time with something you put out there….

Fifth of July

Jul 05, 2018

My immigrant parents-in-law love America. They marvel at the National Parks system. At their right to openly critique their government. At the New York Mets. At giant Buicks. My mother-in-law has said more than once, “This is the only country in the world where the word ‘happiness’ is actually written in the founding documents.” Today…

Bobbling

Jun 22, 2018

Shirt? Check. Hat from 1989? Check. Bobblehead from 1986, complete with cracked, superglued head? Check. Sh$&-eating grin in anticipation of playing at Fenway park on Sunday before the Red Sox play the Mariners? Check. Only a few tix left. Get em here.

Fenway

Jun 14, 2018

This is big: WE’RE PLAYING FENWAY. On June 24, we’re playing on a beautiful rooftop at Fenway Park before the Sox slay the Mariners. Your ticket gets you into our show and the game, and allows you to pretty much have the best day ever (according to us). There are limited tix for this so get them now! Can…

DC

Jun 14, 2018

Each time we play DC we take this photo. Each time is better than the last. Thank you Pearl Street Warehouse – and of course the amazing, rowdy people of DC – for the grand time.

Release Day

Jun 06, 2018

Our fourth full-length, Neighbors and Strangers, is out today. Here it is on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.It’s funny, when you create something and put it out into the world, there’s this tension. On one hand, you could care less if anyone listens to it because you’re proud of this thing that you have created from scratch, that now exists in the…

Salem

May 22, 2018

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…

Three New Songs

May 18, 2018

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.

Pledge

Dec 14, 2016

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

Wolf

So there was this wolf hanging out behind us recently at The Sinclair… (photo by Alicia O’Connell)

Drummers

Nov 29, 2016

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.

The Post

Nov 18, 2016

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.

Podcast

Nov 13, 2016

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.

Herald

Nov 03, 2016

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…

The Circus Life

Oct 25, 2016

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.

Another Other

Oct 14, 2016

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)

A Ways Away

Oct 11, 2016

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.

Myspace? Myspace!

Oct 05, 2016

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…

New Video

Sep 28, 2016

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…

A New Song

Sep 09, 2016

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

Another Teaser

Aug 30, 2016

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

Pre-Sale = New Tracks!

Aug 26, 2016

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…

The New Album Cover

Aug 24, 2016

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…

Sinclair Show On Sale Now

Aug 16, 2016

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

Video Tease

Aug 02, 2016

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

Immigrant Song

Jul 31, 2016

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…

A Video Tease

Jul 18, 2016

We made a video. It’s coming out soon…

LiVe ViDEo

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…
