Remember a couple of years ago, when it seemed like every time you opened a web browser there was an announcement that Asobi Seksu had added more dates to its never-ending tour? The atmospheric rockers don’t have quite an extensive road trip this time around (yet), but the band has announced both a new album and a handful of show dates.

Early 2009 will see the release of a yet-to-be-named album dropping on One Little Indian and Polyvinyl, respectively. Prior to that, on November 17 in Europe and November 18 in the U.S., the band will release the first single off the album, “Me & Mary,” as a 7″, with a little gem called “Breathe Into Glass” on the flipside. Then they’ll be hitting the road with some U.S. tour dates. Chances are, if you don’t catch them on these dates, they’ll be returning to your city very soon.
