tsar bomba

Kung Fu has released their highly anticipated sophomore album, Tsar Bomba, featuring 12 original songs including fan favorites “Do The Right Thing,” “Hollywood Kisses,” and “Snaggle.” The band took their time on this album, recording it slowly over 18 months at Gold Coast studios and the result is a perfect example of their unique sonic contribution to the music scene. Blurring the lines between electro-jazz-fusion and ‘70s-style street fighter funk, Tsar Bomba captures the band’s musical prowess with a delightful sense of creativity and musicianship. The album showcases heavy-hitting guitar solos mixed with skilled saxophone interplay, mind melting electro-fused keyboards, a funky bass line and driving drums. In support of the new album the band will continue on a national tour this Winter/Spring and has already been announced to perform at several music festivals this summer.

To stream Tsar Bomba visit www.soundcloud.com/kungfutunes/sets/kung-fu-freshness or Spotify.

Biography: With a tight headlock on the nu-funk movement, Kung Fu is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution to the music scene. Blurring the lines between electro-jazz-fusion and ‘70s-style street fighter funk, Kung Fu merges early Headhunters and Weather Report mentality with contemporary electronic ideology like yin and yang. Although the ensemble cast enjoys a seasoned pedigree that reads like an all-star jam, Kung Fu has gained a rabid following that has led to sold out club shows around the US and sets at major music festivals. The powerhouse quintet’s live show has been described as “lethal funk,” “explosive,” “jaw dropping,” and “musically mesmerizing.” With several tracks from their self-titled 2011 debut album already on regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio’s JamOn, their highly anticipated follow-up album, Tsar Bomba, dropped March 2014.
