Acid Mothers Temple take ultimate sightseeing roadtrip with Tjutjuna (thanks Google Maps!)

It’s time again for the annual migration of Japanese psych legends Acid Mothers Temple to our shores. Even though they confusingly named their 2012 tour the “Last Tour,” we already have news of their return. Given the group’s penchant for ever-so-slightly changing their name, the 2012 tour very well could have been the last tour for that particular incarnation of the band. With the crazy number of releases that the AMT machine releases in a given year, it’s difficult to keep track of exactly who or what this year’s Acid Mothers Temple will bring.

And that’s awesome! Even if you’ve seen AMT before, I can guarantee that this tour will vary in some significant fashion from what you saw the last time. They’ll be touring with Tjutjuna, who are following up 2010’s self-titled album with Westerner, a seven-track album due April 30 on Fire Talk (pre-order here). If these groups aren’t coming to your town, try to find them en route; they might very well be persuaded to hang if you’re lucky enough to find them on the road. I don’t know what they’ll be driving, but I’m imagining something akin to the Mystery Machine as integrated into a trippy Cheech and Chong reboot.
