KEPI GHOULIE premiered “Happy When It Rains,” the first single from Kepi’s newest album “Full Moon Forever.” CLICK HERE to listen.
“Full Moon Forever” is a covers record which saw Kepi enlist the help of friends such as Ara Babajian (The Slackers), Ian Fowles (Aquabats, Gerard Way), Aaron Minton (Prima Donna), and Kevin Preston (Green Day) all lend a hand in bringing this record to life.
Choosing songs for the record were tough but “Happy When It Rains” had a personal attachment for Kepi. “We chose “Happy When It Rains” and most of the songs on this record because they all meant something personal to us! We are all huge fans of the Jesus and Mary Chain and ‘Darklands’ has gone on to be a top ten desert island disc for me! It was also the first CD I ever bought,” exclaims Kepi.
To complement the release of “Full Moon Forever,” Pirates Press Records will reissue the Groovie Ghoulies record “World Contact Day.” This foundational album for Kepi, originally released in 1996, has been out of print for years and fans around the globe have been clamoring for a repress.
With the announce of Kepi Ghoulie joining the Pirates Press Records, a big plan was immediately devised. While Kepi has several albums waiting to be released, the label will also be reissuing records from both Groovie Ghoulies and Kepi’s back catalog.
“I am STOKED with the love and support of Pirates Press Records and constantly in a state of semi-belief about how fast and enthusiastically things are going! I have been at this for years and the kickstart/jumpstart/push from this crew, it feels like I am just getting started, and I AM! ” states Kepi.
