Japanese Breakfast releases new video for “Road Head,” announces headlining tour dates

Today, Japanese Breakfast has shared a music video for “Road Head,” the latest from Soft Sounds From Another Planet, the much anticipated follow up to the critically acclaimed Psychopomp. Of the self-directed video, Michelle Zauner says: “‘Road Head’ is the fifth music video Adam Kolodny and I have collaborated on. For this one we wanted to focus on staging and an exaggerated color palette. We were inspired by Fallen Angels and Twin Peaks.”

Soft Sounds From Another Planet is a work of self-reflection that looks out at the cosmos in search of healing, finding inspiration in science fiction, outer space, and the Mars One Project. The album is available for pre-order now and due out July 14th on Dead Oceans.

Japanese Breakfast has also announced a headlining fall tour, a free record release show matinee at Brooklyn, NY’s Union Pool on July 15th and some dates in Europe. The band is currently on tour with (Sandy) Alex G and Cende and have some upcoming US dates with Tegan and Sara. All dates below.
