Ahead of their run of four UK dates in December Ireland’s prodigal sons, Kodaline, announce the I Wouldn’t Be EP (B-Unique/Sony) featuring four brand new tracks written by the band and recorded at The Vale Studios in Worcestershire.

Like their stunning single “Brother”, released earlier this year, the collection of songs on the I Wouldn’t Be EP showcases the band’s ability to straddle genres while retaining a strong sense of identity and ranks among their best work. The title track sees the band harmonising perfectly reminiscent of Bon Iver, while the anthemic “Ready To Change” and indie-pop of “The Riddle” are sure to become live favourites.

After their set at Glastonbury and intimate show at London’s Omeara, Kodaline will play the following December dates, with final tickets on sale now:

Fri 8th                                   MANCHESTER, O2 Apollo
Sat 9th                                  GLASGOW, O2 Academy
Sun 10th                              BIRMINGHAM, O2 Academy
Tues 12th                            LONDON, Brixton O2 Academy

Last year Kodaline featured on Kygo’s global smash “Raging”, and – alongside old collaborators Johnny McDaid and Steve Mac – have for the first time worked with a variety of different writers and producers, including pop guru Wayne Hector, Jonny Coffer (Beyonce, Emeli Sande, Naughty Boy) and Two Inch Punch (Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Sam Smith) on their forthcoming album.

The new album will be the first full-length release since 2015’s Coming Up For Air, which went Gold in the UK. The band’s debut album, In A Perfect World has sold over a million copies worldwide and imprinted itself on the nation’s consciousness with streaming figures well into the 100s of millions. On Vevo the band’s videos have had over 200 million views, and they have sold over a million singles.

Kodaline will release their new album early in 2018.

Kodaline are singer Steve Garrigan, guitarist Mark Prendergast, bassist Jason Boland and drummer Vinny May.
