Nottingham, UK band Panchiko were together from 1997 - 2001 and mixed guitars with dreamy electronics for a unique sound somewhere between indie rock, post rock and trip hop. They only released a couple CDR EPs during their original run, but when a 4chan user found a copy of their debut, 2001's D>E>A>T>H>M>E>T>A>L, in a charity shop and uploaded it to YouTube in 2016, Panchiko became a minor viral sensation, with new fans trying to figure out who this band was and where they were. That led to an expanded edition of D>E>A>T>H>M>E>T>A>L getting an official release in 2020, and then the band reformed in 2021.

Now Panchiko have just announced they've made a new album, officially their first full-length, which is titled Failed at Math(s) and will be out May 5. While they haven't shared a track from that yet, the band have announced a North American tour happening around their appearance at Las Vegas' Sick New World fest this spring, including a NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge on May 30. The tour is with Horse Jumper of Love and LSD and The Search for God  and tickets for all shows go on sale Wednesday, February 15 at 10 AM.
