Japanese Breakfast Hint at New Album, Announce Tour

Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner recently went on the Talkhouse Music Podcast to sit down with Rachel Goswell of Slowdive. While the half-hour episode finds the two chatting about their relationships with bandmates and the upcoming tour the two bands have scheduled for May, Zauner dropped some not-so-subtle hints about her band’s upcoming second album. “We have a new record coming out in July, and there’s a lot of Juno on that record,” she say in the clip, in reference to the famed Roland Juno-106 analog synthesizer.

In a recent Instagram post on the one year anniversary of their standout debut Psychopomp, Zauner also hinted at the new album. “Can’t believe we have a pretty sick announcement already coming at the end of this month…” she writes in the photo’s caption.

Later this month, the band is setting out on a full US tour with The Artist Formerly Known As Alex G, as well as Double Double Whammy recent signees Cende. Check out the podcast and tour dates below.
