Kikagaku Moyo have revealed plans to play across Europe this summer in support of their latest studio album Masana Temples.

It was released in October last year via Guruguru Brain and was their first album since 2016’s House In The Tall Grass and followed the 2017 EP Stone Garden

The run of 24 dates will get under way with an appearance at the Roskilde Festival on July 6 and wrap up with a set at the UK’s End of The Road festival on August 31.

Masana Temples was inspired by “various experiences the band had with traveling through life together, ranging from the months spent on tour to making a pilgrimage to Lisbon to record the album with jazz musician Bruno Pernadas.”

It’s currently available to purchase through Bandcamp.
