KennyHoopla is teasing a brand-new single, YOU NEEDED A HIT//.

Following the release of YOU NEEDED A HIT//, Kenny has got a big few months coming up: across the pond he’ll be supporting blink-182 at several of their reunion shows with Tom DeLonge, before he returns to the UK. There, Kenny will support Limp Bizkit at their biggest UK headline show ever in London, before playing Reading & Leeds at the end of August.

Speaking to Kerrang! for his first-ever cover in 2021, KennyHoopla shared of his hopes for the future: “I think if you can be honest, make infectious music and really speak your truth, that’s something that can move the world. With this project, we're making being truthful cool again, and putting it right at the forefront, though I’m not sure this kind of thing ever was truly ‘cool’. But regardless, that's what I'm doing. We're making authenticity. I just want my heart to shine through, and once I’ve done that then, honestly, I want to take over the fucking world.

“Somebody has to stand up for rock, so why shouldn’t it be me?”
