Kero Kero Bonito on the importance of “saying shit”

Get out there and make a change, the band say in the new issue of Dork.
Kero Kero Bonito are concerned with the current state of The World. It’s a mess, especially post-Brexit, and more important than ever before that young people take a stand and get involved.

“The most important thing right now,” says Gus Lobban in the new issue of Dork, is “forming bands and singing songs – actually saying shit. Don’t just sit around watching Facebook, scrolling through the same shit your mate posted two days ago. What the fuck is going on?!”

“I feel like this generation is being spoken about the most but listened to the least,” he continues. “It’s funny, because people have a lot to say about generations right now, especially the generation that we find ourselves in. This is an album for the KKB generation.”

You can read all about the band’s new album ‘Bonito Generation’ in October’s Dork, out now – order your copy here. The issue also features Black Honey and Dream Wife, Jagwar Ma, Two Door Cinema Club, Girli, Spring King, Daughter, Pumarosa, Hamilton Leithauser & Rostam, Sohn, Sunflower Bean, Kloe, Nimmo, PWR BTTM, Drones Club and loads more.
