sub:shaman bids sayonara to Singapore, embarks upon a whirlwind Japan tour

Considering their amazing 2015 split-EP with Japanese experimental rock band Qu (entitled ilm) one would assume that sub:shaman would have some pretty deep-rooted fondness for the land of the rising sun.

And true enough, the band's first course of business after recently launching their acclaimed debut LP, Apnea, will be to head straight for a whirlwind tour of Japan!

Next up, they'll be linking up with their old touring buddies Qu in Kyoto and Osaka before concluding their trip with a high-profile festival performance at Akibahara Club Goodman as part of Tokyo Boredom #12.
