Kongos' Time Is 'Now'

Having grown its fan base through constant touring -- including a key opening slot for Linkin Park in South Africa in 2012 -- sibling quintet Kongos makes its Billboard chart debut as the Americana-inflected single "Come With Me Now" (Epic) soars onto Rock Airplay at No. 26 and Alternative at No. 32. The band continues its intense touring pace by opening for Airborne Toxic Event this month and will play the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Del., in June.
