British indie rock quartet The Kooks will be headlining Tiger Beer's National Day party on 5 August.
The event touted as the Unofficial Official Party of SG50 will be held at the Capitol Theatre.
The Kooks are a self-described "pop" band that draw inspiration from various sources to create their unique rock sound, borrowing equally from the 60s British invasion bands and the post-punk revival of the new millennium to craft uncompromisingly catchy songs.
The band have achieved massive success globally since their breakthrough into the mainstream with debut album 'Inside In/Inside Out', which achieved quadruple platinum status in the UK and earned the band awards for Best UK & Ireland Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006 and a nomination at The Brit Awards for the single 'She Moves in Her Own Way'.
Joining The Kooks are Australian indie-rockers The Griswolds. Formed three years ago in Sydney, the group quickly drew internet buzz after posting their debut single 'Mississippi' online. Shortly thereafter, The Griswolds scored another hit with 'Heart of a Lion'.
