Bo Ningen Announce 2021 Sheffield Date

London-based Japanese alternative-rock band BO NINGEN are today pleased to announce a run of rescheduled UK headline tour dates for April 2021 with tickets on sale now.

Alongside the live news, they’re also streaming new single You Make A Mark Like A Calf Branding — the latest single to be taken from their critically acclaimed new album Sudden Fictions.

Commenting on the track, guitarist Kohhei Matsuda said: “We wanted to make this song sound like a very specific kind of music for dance. One that used to open for a ceremony of a mystical futuristic tribe; an imaginary one. So this is a kind of folk music. The intention was to make something new and unheard out of already heard and used ideas from the past. We write our own future myth.”

Previous single Minimal featured a guest vocal appearance from Bobby Gillespie of Scottish rock icons Primal Scream, and included a collaboration with Italo-Australian video artist Rebecca Salvadori in the form of an experimental new piece of video art which premiered exclusively with NTS.

Recorded around the world in London, Tokyo, and LA in a constant search for inspiration, and embodying the contemporary art and music scenes where crossovers of different cultures are flourishing, the quartet fuse disparate sounds and influences into a fierce, eclectic torrent of grooves that marks Sudden Fictions out as their most ambitious and accomplished work to date.

The band will perform at The Picture House Social in Sheffield on April 19th 2021.
