BO NINGEN Announce October 2020 UK Headline Tour Dates

15th May 2020

London-based Japanese alternative-rock band BO NINGEN are today delighted to announce a run of UK headline tour dates for October 2020, including a London headline on 13th October at Village Underground (see below for full listings).

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 15th May 2020 via http://www.seetickets.com

To celebrate the announcement, the band are also streaming unreleased new album track ‘Zankoku’ in full today, out now on all good DSPs.

Commenting on the new track, vocalist & bassist Taigen Kawabe says: “Zankoku (which means cruel in Japanese) is the bridge between the existing image of Bo Ningen on our previous album, Ⅲ, and our forthcoming album, Sudden Fictions. You can sonically observe how Bo Ningen transformed into a new shape, how we re-find (refine) our identity within the song. Both sound and lyrics are eccentric and chaotic—it is a perfect precursory chapter of our new beginnings.”

The new track is the latest to be taken from the band’s recently announced forthcoming new album, Sudden Fictions, which is set for release on 26th June 2020 via Alcopop! Records.

Working with Drew Brown as producer—best known for his work on albums such as ‘Amok’ by Atoms For Peace, and ‘Hyperspace’ by Beck—the album sessions took place at Vox Studios, East West Studios and Studio 101.

Recorded around the world in London, Tokyo, and LA in a constant search for inspiration, and embodying the contemporary art and music scenes where crossovers of different cultures are flourishing, the quartet fuse disparate sounds and influences into a fierce, eclectic torrent of grooves that marks Sudden Fictions out as their most ambitious and accomplished work to date.

As a precursor to the record, the band recently revealed ‘A Found History’—a week of exclusive rarities and sonic oddments from the past decade which charted a course through BO NINGEN’s past, and examined how their sound has evolved in exclusive partnership with The Quietus, The Line of Best Fit, Radio X, Clash Magazine, Rumore Magazine, and UPSET Magazine.

All of the ‘A Found History’ releases are now available to purchase and stream via the band’s own label, Polytope Records, at: https://boningen.bandcamp.com/music

Earlier this year the band announced their signing to Alcopop! Records for their fourth studio album, and released lead single ‘B.C’ on limited edition 7” vinyl to support from BBC 6music, The Line of Best Fit, CLASH, London in Stereo, DORK, UPSET, The Most Radicalist, Complete Music Update and many more.

New album Sudden Fictions is released 26th June 2020 via Alcopop! Records
