Asobi Seksu To Release Hush In February, Citrus Vinyl In November + Tour

After losing yet another bassist and drummer following the 2006 release of Citrus -- which will be re-released on vinyl November 25 by Friendly Fire Recordings -- Asobi Seksu guitarist James Hanna said he and keyboardist/front woman Yuki Chikudate wrote their highly anticipated third album Hush when they "felt destroyed."

The resulting sound is a little more bare -- "We knew we didn't want to do 7,000 reverb guitars this time," Hanna said. "So we stripped the sound down and built it back up from there." Hush hits stores on February 17 of next year via their new home, Polyvinyl, with the UK single "Me & Mary" set for release next week on Nov. 18.

Since February seems like light years away, the band has released the tracklisting for Hush, and of course if you're lucky enough to be in Europe in the next few weeks, you can always catch them live with Ladytron.
