Saturday, a day where you should relax and do something fun, like visiting a record fair, I choose the record fair today. So I give you a happy and nice song with a South African rock band named KONGOS.
KONGOS is a South African alternative rock/kwaito band consisting of four brothers: Johnny (accordion, keyboard, vocals), Jesse (drums, percussion, vocals), Daniel (guitar, vocals), and Dylan Kongos (bass guitar, lap slide guitar, vocals). They spent their childhoods in the city of London and in South Africa. They compose, record and perform in Phoenix, where they have lived since 1996. They graduated from Chaparral High School in Scottsdale and attended Arizona State University. The four men are the sons of singer-songwriter John Kongos. They are of Greek origin and have attended the Greek Saheti school in Gauteng, South Africa. The film Holy Motors used their song "Come with Me Now" in the official trailer. WWE also used this song as the theme for their 2014 pay-per-view event Extreme Rules.

In 2011, KONGOS released their album Lunatic, which featured "Come with Me Now" which was released as a single. With the band performing the song live while opening for American band Linkin Park in South Africa, "Come with Me Now" was considered a fan favorite there though it initially struggled to find an audience in the United States. The band admitted that when "it didn't seem like things were getting along we really lost heart - we were ready to move on to new material".
In early January 2014, the song began receiving airplay in the US, generating major label attention for the band which was eventually signed to Epic Records. It was released to US contemporary hit radio on 15 April 2014.
The song was released in the UK as the lead single off Lunatic on August 17, 2014.
