It’s been quite a while since pop punk legends Shonen Knife did a proper EU tour, but the girls are finally back and will be rocking Europe starting early May! Most of the concerts will take place in Germany, but they will also visit Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain and Poland for a few shows, including both festival appearances and club gigs. The tour’s name, ALIVE! in Europe 2019 is a reference to their live album from last Spring, but just a day after they wrap up the tour they will actually drop a brand new album as well!

Titled Sweet Candy Power and featuring ten tracks, it will be out worldwide on the 5th of June (no tracklist available at the moment) and while their previous one, 2016’s Adventure was an interesting detour towards hard rock and heavy metal sound, this one was inspired by 60’s and 70’s British and American Rock music. And shortly after the release and a few shows at home, they will be back mid-July for an album release tour around the UK… so, check the schedule right below their new music video!
