Kero Kero Bonito have signed to Polyvinyl, which means, yes, at long last, ordering a Kero Kero Bonito CD through the mail will now net you one of the signature Airheads candies the label sends out with its merchandise. The signing is truly a match made in some sugary pop heaven.

In addition to announcing this exciting signing (and, indeed, in celebration of it), Kero Kero Bonito have dropped a new single on the world. It’s called “Make Believe,” and you can watch its James Hankins-directed video below. “Make Believe” will appear on the group’s upcoming second album, Time ‘n’ Place, about which a press release states that details “will be revealed soon.”

The single also brings with it a “digital exclusive b-side” in the form of the track “World Tour 2018,” which has previously been released in a tour announcement video, but is now more widely and conveniently available.

AND FINALLY: the Kero Kero crew are also about to launch grueling gonzo world tour. You can gaze in fear at their huge list of dates below.
