Shonen Knife made a video for “Sweet Candy Power,” touring North America

Shonen Knife

Japanese cult punks Shonen Knife released their 19th album Sweet Candy Power earlier this month on Good Charamel Records, and it’s another very fun batch of the kind of Ramones-y bubblegum punk that Shonen Knife have been churning out for nearly four decades. We’re premiering the new video for the title track, which sees the band running around, singing the song into the camera, rocking a variety of classic band tees, and showing off very large pieces of hard candy. Check it out below.

Shonen Knife are also planning to tour North America this summer and fall, including shows in LA, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Cleveland, Austin, Atlanta, DC, Brooklyn, Chicago, and more.

The Brooklyn show happens September 22 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/28) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
