Back in January, Japanese band Kikagaku Moyo announced that they would be going on "indefinite hiatus" after 2022. This year will be busy for them, though, with lots of touring, and they've just announced what they're calling their final album, Kumoyo Island, that will be out May 6 on Guruguru Brain.

The first single off the album is "Cardboard Pile," a dazzling blast of eye-dilating psychedelia that takes a few twists and turns through its four minutes. Watch the trippy video by director/animator Katsushika Shusshin below.

Kikagaku Moyo will be in North America this spring, including two sold-out shows at Brooklyn's Elsewhere (May 16 & 17), and then will be back in the fall, including another NYC date, Brooklyn Steel on October 6. All dates are listed below.
