“I Want To Know”

Assembled from eight months of live footage accumulated during the group’s recent tours of North America and Europe, the clip truly conveys the KONGOS concert experience. The band directed and edited the video themselves, building it from intimate road vignettes captured by videographers Nick Morgulis and Jonny Marlow. Some of these moments include unforgettable performances at places such as Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City, which they remember as “their best crowd yet,” to skateboarding through European arena halls during their tour with OneRepublic and even throwing down some soccer “skills.”

About the video, the band says, “We really wanted to capture the feel of a KONGOS show in this video. A lot of people might only know us as “that song on the radio,” so we wanted to give the viewer a sense of what the band is all about. Because the footage is from so many different nights, we went with black and white to tie it all together and give it a consistent flow… Plus, it makes us look cooler than we are.”

The catchy, reggae-infused bounce of “I Want To Know” officially begins impacting Alternative Radio starting January 19. Moreover, fans can get the real KONGOS live experience this winter when the boys hit the road on the 2015 Lunatic tour starting January 29 in Dallas, TX at Gas Monkey. They’ve tapped Sir Sly and Colony House as support.

Last year, the ubiquitous anthem “Come With Me Now” from Lunatic [Epic Records] solidified KONGOS as one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most exciting and enigmatic new acts. Reaching platinum status, the single soared to #1 at Alternative Radio and stayed there for five weeks, marking the quickest ascent to the top by a new band in history. Moreover, it seized #13 at Top 40 and #17 at Hot AC. It’s also received countless high-profile placements including The Expendables 3, Dodge Ram, Samsung Galaxy, American Idol, The Originals, MTV Movie Awards, HBO, FX, CNN, NBC Sports, ESPN, NFL, WWE, Playstation 4 and more.  The video has been viewed over 23 million times:  http://youtu.be/Gz2GVlQkn4Q.
