Henkan set for release in October; tour dates below

The London-based Japanese four piece Bo Ningen have a new single on the way - 'Henkan' is out on October 1 via Stolen Recordings. Have a look at the band performing it live over at Noisey.

Recorded at London's Lynchmob Studios, 'Henkan' is raw and fast paced, mixing together their various influences of grunge, noise and krautrock in a crudely appealing manner. The self-produced single will be a teaser from their forthcoming album, Line The Wall, released a week later on October 8.

Bo Ningen are well known for their amazingly energetic live performances, having toured with the likes of Merzbow, Guitar Wolf and The Horrors. Having recently returned from a tour of Japan, the group are set to perform at a number of UK festival dates, kicking off with an appearance at Manchester's AND Festival. Following this, they're commencing a headline tour in support of the album release.
