Quick off the back of November’s critically acclaimed single Lupines, championed by the likes of Ones To Watch, Loudwire, Louder Than War Radio and Sirius XM, Bristol-based rock trio Krooked Tongue start 2023 with a bang, returning with their new single Velociraptor, due for release February 24th, taken from their upcoming EP due later this year.

Formed in 2019, Krooked Tongue burst onto the scene with the release of their celebrated debut single ‘I Wanna Steal Your Car’, word of their frenetic live shows and brooding lyrical commentary soon spread, leading them to embark on their first UK tour.

With a handful of successful singles under their belt, the band spent 2020 honing in on a more refined studio sound with Josh Gallop (Phoxjaw, Mother Vulture) at Stage 2 Studios in Bath, helping to replicate their formidable live act.

The result of this was their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘No Vacancy Hotel’ released in February of 2022, which has since amassed over 150,000 streams and saw support from the likes of Ones To Watch, HardBeat Magazine and Distorted Sound Mag.

The band’s upcoming track Velociraptor is the second single taken from their upcoming sophomore EP. Fierce and effortlessly cool, it’s a song about finding your inner animal and letting it loose.

“You have to find space in this fucked up world to have fun, get wasted, kiss and tell. We’re not here for a long time, so it may as well be a good time”, exclaims vocalist and lyricist Oli Rainsford.

Velociraptor is due for release February 24th and will be available on all major platforms.
