Akron/Family Tour Japan

In July, Akron/Family will return to Japan where the creative genesis for their latest album S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT took place. It is uncertain whether they’ll be able to return to the cabin in the volcanic hillside of Mount Meekan where the album first took shape, but we’re sure AK will be trolling the street vendors for the very best and strangest in Japanese underground music. Either way this signals a nice completion of a creative cycle that birthed an album that still runs circles around our brains. Check out the full tour dates below:
