May can't come soon enough if their album's atmospheric and elemental first single 'Kogarashi' is anything to go by. Tour dates are listed after the single's stream below:
I came up with the melody and rhythm of Kogarashi, when I was about to fall asleep at the park” explains vocalist Tomo Katsurada. “It was a nice warm day in the Autumn to get stoned and pass out in the park. I remember I was surrounded by the multi-coloured dead leaves and felt warm when I woke up. But all of the sudden, Kogarashi (the Autumn wind) blew all of the leaves away. It was a beautiful and psychedelic Autumn moment.
