Matt and Kim will release their new album, Almost Everyday, via Fader on May 4. In 2017, Kim Schifino injured herself onstage, so they took the opportunity to write an album! She and Matt Johnson have two sold-out shows at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, May 2, and Thursday, May 3.
Almost Everyday, the sixth studio album by Matt and Kim, includes guest vocals from friends such as Mark Hoppus, Clairo, King Tuff, Flosstradamus, Santigold, Kevin Morby, Cole and Max Becker from SWMRS, Kevin Ray from Walk the Moon, and Dave Monks from Tokyo Police Club, among others.
About the album, Matt said, “2017 was not a great year for us. Kim got real depressed during her recovery, and anyone who knows Kim (or has seen her play) knows she’s such a bad-ass upbeat person so it was hard. Then of course almost everyday it seemed like there was another terrible headline. I feel since the beginning of music people have used writing songs as a form of therapy, but I’m not sure we ever really did… until 2017.”
