Kitchens of Distinction return with their first new album in 19 years!  Folly will be released September 30th through 3 Loop Records. Patrick Fitzgerald revealed that he started working with Julian Swales in June 2011 - at the time they had no intention to write a record - they just played to have fun.  The music flowed, and they eventually put together a 10 song album which they finished in April 2013 while Fitzgerald was recovering from a nephrectomy. Fitzpatrick discussed the evolution of the album in a new blog posting, and explained a bit of the meaning of the album title:

"Yes, it’s Folly to try again. Yes, it was Folly in the first place, the daft idea of a being in a band. But without this madness, how pale our lives would be. Without those strange useless Follies that dot Britain how plain the landscape would be. Folie á Deux – a medical condition where two people share the same psychotic delusion. Folie á Trois? What a marvelous crazed thing we have made, full of hope."

Stream "Japan To Jupiter" in full below or from the BBC archive (forward the BBC archive to ~ 1 hour 45 minutes in to hear it)

Folly will be released on CD, LP, digital album download, and as a special bundle. The bundle includes a CD or LP copy of the album, plus a handmade, illustrated lyric book (first 200 copies come signed by Patrick Fitzgerald), and Kitchens of Distinction t-shirt.  Pre-order direct from 3 Loop Records, or fans in the U.K. can order through Amazon.  In North America, order through Amazon here.
