Melt Banana @ NYC's Bowery Ballroom in 2009 (more by Lori Baily)

Japanese noise-punks Melt Banana are currently prepping a new LP for release. It's called Fetch and is due out in October via Japan's A-ZAP Records. Details are sparse, but you should be able to preorder the album soon via Revolver Distribution.

You already knew that they'll be coming stateside for Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013, but they've now got a full North American tour surrounding their festival appearance. That tour includes a performance at the Double Door on October 27. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Saturday (8/17) at noon CST.
