Singaporean alternative band sub:shaman takes their debut full length album, Apnea, to the land of the rising sun!
Partnering with the inimitable Aya Sekine from BON GOÛT MUSIC (BGM) to bring their music to Japan for the very first time, the band will play six shows across four cities – namely Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Fukuoka – from 8th to 17th June.
Shows include an outing to Aoyama Moon Romantic with Nao Kawamura and King Gnu (ex.Srv.Vinci), as well as a Singapore showcase in Osaka – organised by BGM – featuring Aya Sekine, weish and blankverse.
sub:shaman will also be sharing the stage with Japanese rock band, Qu in Kyoto and Osaka. The band had previously shared a split EP in 2015 and performed shows in Singapore and Malaysia as part of their Southeast Asian tours in 2015 and 2016. This Japan tour continues the cultural and musical exchange shared by the bands over the last three years.
The tour will culminate with a festival performance at Akibahara Club Goodman for Tokyo Boredom #12. The Japanese festival will feature a cool 18 bands from various cities in Japan, including Groundcover., Bossston Cruizing Mania and many more!
“It is not always easy to get out of a comfort zone as an artist here in Singapore. So it matters to me when someone genuinely wants to explore something new and what they don’t know, because I was the same and I benefitted so much by having taken these risks as an artist. I want them to experience the kind of the excitement that blows people away and inspires people for years.”
