Following the release of their latest album K 2.0 recently, Kula Shaker have announced a 20th Anniversary Edition of their debut album ‘K‘ for release on BMG on 28th October 2016. The band are currently on a 40 date, 11 country tour which takes them up to the end of the year. ‘K‘ is available on CD and vinyl remastered audio and has extensive sleeve notes recalling the story of the band’s conception and the album’s creation.

With a blend of 60s rocking, Britpop and Indian mysticism, ‘K‘ was born from the influences of George Harrison, The Grateful Dead, The Kinks, Deep Purple and the Doors. The album combined an onslaught of volume, overdriven guitars, and catchy melodies resulting in an album that remains an excellent blast of colourful neo-psychedelia. It produced four classic hit singles ‘Grateful When You’re Dead’, ‘Tattva’, ‘Hey Dude’ and ‘Govinda’ which still receive regular airplay today.

The band will be playing the album in its entirety at the dates alongside songs from their following four albums. The release is a celebration of a stunning debut (which stormed to No.1 on its release – the fastest selling debut of the year – and went on to sell over two million copies worldwide) – but also reminds us of a great British band who, on their reformation have continued to excite and inspire fans all over the world. Far from gazing at the past, their confidence and continued success means they can commemorate this fantastic part of their history whilst forging ahead with new and innovative music and plans.
