"Japanese Vacation" is the second preview from Spider Bags' Frozen Letter, the band's fourth full-length album and first for Merge which will be released on August 5. Consequence of Sound described "Japanese Vacation" by saying, "the mixture of upbeat grooves and unyielding gloominess make for a unique summer anthem, perfect for either cookouts or crying alone in your bedroom." Frozen Letter follows up 2012's acclaimed Shake My Head and is available for pre-order now on CD and LP in the Merge store.
Spider Bags will play on June 18 in Durham, NC at Duke Gardens as part of the Merge 25 - Music In The Gardens Series, and later this year at Fun Fun Fun Fest. The trio has just announced a summer tour in support of Frozen Letter that will make stops in major cities including Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and more. All upcoming shows are listed below.
