Mika Miko Announce Details Of We Be Xuxa + Tour

Formed out of the ashes of the legendary Dead Banana Ladies in 2003 and regulars at The Smell ever since, Mika Miko have been trekking their way back and forth across the U.S. carrying the torch of the LA d.i.y. scene for the better part of the last 5 years. Now with a dude in the band, they're primed to release their second LP and hit the road again.

Michelle Suarez, Jenna Thornhill, Jessica and Jennifer Clavin and newest member Seth Densham will be putting their collective efforts together to support their newest recording We Be Xuxa, which will be released on May 5 on Post Present Medium. Recorded primarily by Mike McHugh at The Distillery in Costa Mesa (Black lips, Lightning Bolt), it will be interesting to see how they deliver those chaotic, So-Cal punk-inspired 20-minute sets into a record. But even if it's "not the same as being there," well, now you have the chance to be there. If you live in one of these cities of course.
