Australian trio, Middle Kids, have shared a new song “Bootleg Firecracker,” via a music video. The band have also announced summer tour dates alongside artists Jimmy Eat World and Manchester Orchestra. Listen to the single below, followed by tour dates.

Singer Hannah Joy describes “Bootleg Firecracker” as “a song about the power, magic, and risk of intimacy…It started out as an up-tempo chorus about dancing, but Tim [Fitz - co-producer and bassist] slowed it down, and we came up with this idea of the bootleg firecracker. Fireworks can be dangerous and risky, but there’s something about their explosion of light and heat that brings people together in celebration. I think love is like that.”

Middle Kids’ last album was 2021’s Today We’re the Greatest.

Previous releases by Bootleg Firecracker include their 2021 album Today We’re the Greatest.
