More Details

Live at Gamuso June 2nd! New EP release June 1st!

Our new three-song EP Fear is ready for release, and will be available to download for free from this Friday, June 1st. The songs are In The Woods, Fear and God (Bigfoot), and we hope you love them! They were murder to record, but also a blast. They represent some quieter and more minimal corners of Abikyokan’s art-dance universe.

To celebrate the release we’ll be playing our first live show since February at Asagaya Gamuso this Saturday, June 2nd. Joining us will be our friends Speaker, artist Sayuri Lovelock and DJ Antonio Yodobashi. Craig and Grant will also be transmitting some great records from out of their computers/brains in the spaces between the other great things.  In addition, a limited edition CD of the Fear EP will be available to 40 lucky audience members!

Looking forward to seeing you there, as we usher in the next stage of Abikyokan’s Deep Space Mission. Go deh!
