King Stingray’s new single is here.

“Best Bits”, their second single of the year following “Through the Trees”, was announced last week alongside news of the band’s massive regional Australian tour.

“‘Best Bits’ is a song about all the best parts of life all poured into one moment,” King Stingray explain. “Inspired by a particular moment in time, a particular day that had all the right ingredients. It’s about those ripper-of-a-day type moments, those warm days in the sunshine with your mates, with your family or a loved one. The memorable days that just seem to stick with you.

“It’s about simple living in a complex digital world, and although it can be hard to articulate in just a few words, a feeling that is so massive and profound. Sometimes all the best bits of life are already all around us! Yo manymak!”

King Stingray have been teasing new music on social media recently, and let fans know that they’ve been busy preparing their second album, the highly anticipated follow-up to their acclaimed self-titled debut album from 2022.

King Stingray begin their regional tour in July. They’ll head to Castlemaine, Frankston, Torquay, Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Maroochydore, Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Wollongong, and Canberra between July and August, before finishing their with a big show in NT. They’ll be supported by Jem Cassar-Daley.

King Stingray’s “Best Bits” is out now.
