With less than a week to go until their first-ever U.S. headlining tour, Pool Kids team up with their hardcore alter-egos POOL for a new, 6-song split, out everywhere today.

The release features 3 songs from each project; the first, a b-side and two reimagining's from Pool Kids critically-acclaimed self-titled 2022 LP, and the latter, three brand new, neck-breaking anthems from POOL.

The idea for a Pool Kids / POOL split has been orbiting the Florida band for years, but as they prepared for their first headline tour, they realized now was the right time to make it happen. Timing put them in a bind––they decided just before leaving for several months of national and international touring alongside bands like PUP, Beach Bunny, La Dispute, Origami Angel, and more––but Pool Kids always accepts a challenge. They returned home from tour and immediately spent 9 straight days in the studio bringing this vision to life.

"We are so much happier with the result than we thought we would be. It was incredibly reassuring to see what this band could create under such a time crunch and with far less planning than we are used to. We really ended up with something that we are proud of, back to front."

Catch the band on tour across the US this summer! Tickets are going fast.
