Asobi Seksu Announce US Fall Tour

     7" Single On Polyvinyl Record Co. Out November 18th

New York’s Asobi Seksu is thrilled to announce its first US tour dates in over a year. With much of the band’s touring schedule taking them abroad for the past two years, they are extra excited to be hitting the road once again in America.

Following their last full-length, the rapturously received Citrus (which spawned the fine singles “Thursday”, “Strawberries” and “Goodbye”, and received glowing notices across the board), Asobi Seksu returns in early 2009 with their fantastic and none-more-assured third LP, which like Citrus was produced by Chris Zane (The Walkmen, Les Savy Fav).

The new record is preceded in November by the swooping, emphatic single “Me & Mary” (backed by non-album B-Side “Breathe Into Glass”), which rolls forth on a bed of drums and glistening guitars, and features a soaring vocal performance from Yuki Chikudate (keyboard, vocals), who along with James Hanna (guitars) form the core of Asobi Seksu.

The single will be released digitally and on 7” vinyl in the US via Polyvinyl and in Europe via One Little Indian on Nov 18 and Nov 17, respectively.
