The psychedelic rock powerhouse that is Japan’s Kikagaku Moyo is set to hit Europe again this Summer! After a string of Spring dates gave them packed shows at Electric Brixton and the andmoreagain festival in London, the group has announced a full tour through Europe. Many of these upcoming shows will also be festival dates, concluding with the End of the Road Festival at the end of August.

Kikagaku Moyo is still supporting their recent album, Masana Temples, which released this last October. I absolutely loved it and still listen to the track “Dripping Sun” pretty regularly. Masana Temples is an album written to reflect the journey Kikagaku Moyo has gone on as a band and the things they’ve  experienced. This is very much reflected in the tone of the album, which is a trip in itself through a vast amount of sonic panoramas.
