Asobi Seksu will be heading back into the studio in June to start their third full length release, working again with producer Chris Zane. This time around, though, they'll jump to Polyvinyl Records for the North American release.
“It seemed only natural to work with Chris again to see what we could do with more time and flexibility in the studio,” said singer Yuki Chikudate. For this album, they'll take their time and doit right, she insists. "Our last record was done under such stressful conditions, especially given the time constraints, so there was not as much room to try out everything that we wanted to."
The band is happy with the new Polyvinyl arrangement. They're working with a label that they dig on a representational level, the kind of label that they would buy music from.
“I couldn't be happier to be working with Polyvinyl. They are such a well-respected label and have a great sense of post-punk, diy ethics. Yuki and I are both huge record junkies so the fact that they are super into high quality vinyl releases with such creative packaging is exciting,” said guitarist James Hanna.
