Asobi Seksu releasing a new album, opening for White Lies, touring w/ Brahms & then Cults (dates)
Asobi Seksu at the BV-CMJ Day Party (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Asobi Seksu have two NYC shows in their sights, Highline Ballroom on January 27th (tickets) supporting White Lies and February 17th at Mercury Lounge (ticket info forthcoming). The latter is more than just another show for the NYC band, as it will serve as both their record release party and tour kickoff in support of their new LP, Fluorescence, due two days prior on Polyvinyl. Download the first single "Trails" at Polyvinyl's site..
Asobi Seksu's tour will see them head to the West Coast with Brahms and oddly, terminate their tour in Sante Fe, New Mexico before starting back up again a week later in Nashville with Cults. Is that SXSW I smell?
Meanwhile, Brahms play Brooklyn Electronic Music Fest along with Javelin, Kid Sister, and a gang of others on 12/18. Tickets are still available.
Full tour dates and some video is below.
