RAINBOW KITTEN SURPRISE RELEASE NEW SINGLE DROP STOP ROLL
ANNOUNCE AUTUMN US HEADLINE TOUR
Genre-defying, Nashville-based quintet and live sensations Rainbow Kitten Surprise have shared a new single entitled Drop Stop Roll via Elektra Entertainment. The track notably marks the band’s first new music since 2022.
Evoking the collective’s creative magic once more, Drop Stop Roll – a fan favorite that the band has been playing live for the past year – glides along on a glassy clean guitar melody and steady beat on the way towards an instantly chantable chorus. It unfurls with a hypnotic harmony uplifted by psychedelic flourishes and ponderous lyrical poetry, creating a mesmerizing sonic experience.
Additionally, Rainbow Kitten Surprise have expanded their already stacked 2023 tour schedule. Renowned for highly energetic and unforgettable shows, they will embark on a seven-week North American headline jaunt this autumn. Support comes from Indigo De Souza and flipturn on select dates. The band is offering VIP packages including premium seating, early entry into the venue, and limited-edition band merchandise. Rainbow Kitten Surprise have once more partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to local food banks working to fight hunger and food insecurity. Rainbow Kitten Surprise has already raised over $170k for food banks in local tour markets, LGBTQ+ causes, and mental health initiatives. Full tour and festival dates can be found here.
They also just earmarked the fifth anniversary of their fan favorite 2018 LP How to: Friend, Love, Freefall, with the launch of their Propeller Artist Hub. It notably features exclusive colorways of three albums, signed copies of How to: Friend, Love, Freefall, and a commemorative limited-run How to: Friend, Love, Freefall t-shirt available for purchase. All proceeds benefit organizations the musicians believe in and support, including official partners ACT – Abortion Care Tennessee, REFORM, PLUS1, Nashville Launch Pad Street Free Sleep, and Music Health Alliance. They also continue to give back to MAPS, Sandy Hook Promise, and Bloom.
The band has already had a remarkable 2023, having achieved RIAA-platinum certification for their standout single It’s Called: Freefall. This achievement was followed by the release of their highly emotional track Work Out in 2022, marking their first new music in nearly two years. The song’s beautiful melody-line and effervescent vibe stands in stark juxtaposition to its poignant lyrics about the difficult relationships – of all sorts – that people struggle with. Work Out arrived alongside a lyric video, handwritten by RKS frontperson Ela Melo (watch here). The stunning official visual was directed by Joey Brodnax and released last June (watch here).
