Melt-Banana ready first album in six years, plot North American tour, probe your prog-core

Japanese noise-grind-prog-core outfit Melt-Banana have a big announcement, but you have to slow it down 100x to understand it. I’ll translate it for you: the band is to release their 10th album, titled fetch and containing their first set of new material since 2007, via A-Zap Records on October 1! Get ready for an entirely new onslaught of genre- and mind-bending maniacal mayhem.

The hyperactive oddballs, who still use GeoCities for their website because they just don’t give a fuck, have been touring as a duo since last summer, and they’ll do the same for their “2 do what 2 fetch” tour in support of the album.
