It’s been a good year for Japanese fans of Slowdive. Not only did we get a full length album from the sonic pioneers earlier in May, their first in 22 years, but it exceeded all expectation. The self titled LP sounds like it was delivered straight from the band’s 90’s heyday, with their signature guitar haze and haunting vocals entirely intact. Two months later Slowdive was in Japan, blowing minds at the Fuji Rock festival, and now they’re back for a Tokyo show.
Slowdive play Akasaka Blitz on December 12th. Make sure you get there early, doors are at 6:00PM. Tickets are available through Smash, head to the website for ticketing information.
