Shonen Knife To Support Upcoming Album 'Sweet Candy Power' With Summer UK Tour

Thursday, 09 May 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Shonen Knife will return to the UK this summer.

The Japanese bubblegum punk trio will call in Leicester, Oxford, London, Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Brighton and Halifax during July. Tickets for the shows on general sale at 9am on May 8. Their plans also include dates in continental Europe.

The trek will follow up the release of their 19th studio album, 'Sweet Candy Power', which is out on June 5 via Good Charamel Records. In the meantime, head below to view the video for the record's catchy lead single Dizzy. The live performance clip was captured at one of the band's favorite hometown punk bars, Fandango in Osaka, Japan, and features choreographed dance moves. Frontwoman Naoko said:

"[Sweet Candy Power] is an homage to my favorite rock music from the 1960’s and 1970’s. I put all of my enjoyment, entertainment, joy, and delight into my songs. Inspired by my experience during tours and my daily life, I wrote the lyrics with fun and a little bit of irony. I hope people get happy through this album."
