Kikagaku Moyo have announced details of their new album and shared a first track. The band’s fourth LP, Masana Temples, finds the whole band relocated from Japan to Europe and will be released in the throes of a world tour on October 5th via their DIY record label, Guruguru Brain.

‪The shifting dimensions of Masana Temples, fourth album from psychedelic explorers Kikagaku Moyo, are informed by various experiences the band had with traveling through life together, ranging from the months spent on tour to making a pilgrimage to ‬Lisbon to record the album with jazz musician Bruno Pernadas. The band sought out Pernadas both out of admiration for his music and in an intentional move to work with a producer who came from a wildly different background. With Masana Temples, the band wanted to challenge their own concepts of what psychedelic music could be.

Today, the band give a first glimpse of the record with “Gatherings”. “Gatherings is the oldest song on this record” explains vocalist/drummer Go Kurosawa. “With this song, we’re expressing our journey in the world. We’ve gathered everyone in the band’s ideas in this song along with the ideas and influences of the places we’ve visited throughout our travels.
