Sunflower Bean Announce New EP ‘King Of The Dudes’ & Tour With Interpol

New York trio Sunflower Bean released their critically acclaimed sophomore album Twentytwo in Blue earlier this year, and today they announce a new EP entitled King Of The Dudes. The EP’s first single “Come For Me” is out now, premiered via BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac as “Hottest Record In The World” and a conversation with Rolling Stone. “This song was inspired by inner strength, power, and sexual freedom,” explain Sunflower Bean. “In 2018 there is no time to waste and no time for shame. This song is a declaration of that. Do you really want to come for me? Do you really want to waste my time? The song is a dare, a threat, and a beckoning.” Read the interview and listen to the powerful song HERE. Pre-order King of the Dudes, produced by Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX, Angel Olsen) and out January 25th, 2019 via Mom + Pop, HERE. Pre-save the album HERE.

Sunflower Bean also reveal today that they will open for Interpol throughout the U.S. in early 2019. See below to find a show near you, and get your tickets HERE.

Sunflower Bean began recording King of the Dudes this past summer in Los Angeles following the release of Twentytwo in Blue earlier this year. The band explain, “This EP does not give a fuck. It’s reactionary, and a sharpened response to our times. Death, birth, aggression, addiction, and power. Twentytwo In Blue allowed us to find our strength and on King Of The Dudes we use it, no holds barred.”
