Shonen Knife announce ‘Alive! In the U.S.A.’ tour

Japanese punk legends Shonen Knife are bringing their pure punk rock sound to the States next month!

Starting August 28th, the trio will go all around the U.S. of A. on their ‘Alive! In the U.S.A.’ tour. The tour comes as a successor to their first live DVD/CD Live in Osaka.

“Our first live album Live in Osaka was released in 2006, and was recorded at the same venue as this new one,” frontwoman Naoko commented. “After the first live album, we toured, released music constantly, grew as a band and improved. This year we would like to bring the fever from ALIVE! in Osaka on our US tour. Not only will we play songs from the record, but we are also preparing special rarely played songs from earlier albums to the present. Let’s have a fun time together!”
