Asobi Seksu announce U.S. spring tour


Asobi Seksu are all primed to tour in support of their sparkly third release, Hush. Lead vocalist/keyboardist Yuki Chikudate and guitarist/vocalist James Hanna are releasing the new tunes via Polyvinyl, their new home after leaving Brooklyn-based Friendly Fire Recordings. Debut single, "Familiar Light," is out now and showcases Seksu shedding some of their "Kevin Shields’ syndrome" from 2006’s Citrus. Hush is coming at us Feb. 17
