Connecticut funk rock fusion masters Kung Fu, have announced that they are back in the studio working on a sophomore album. Following up a raging self titled debut, the next installment promises to be another edition of body movin groovin.

In anticipation, the band has released a video of “Do the Right Thing”, which is expected to be included on the record. “We are super excited for this album,” says keyboardist Todd Stoops. “We’re really evolving as a unit. When we recorded the debut album the group had only been together for a year but now we have this level of comfort and growth that’s evident in the music. I’m fortunate enough to play with some of the baddest men in the business and we’re trying to update and redefine the ‘fusion’ movement…or at least our movement!”

You can catch Kung Fu this Friday, June 15th, as they play a late night (Showtime 1am) show at the Blue note as [part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival. Be sure to look for the new album due out Winter 2012. We can hardly wait!
