Taiwan’s Ben Ben Lin, founding member of Skip Skip Ben Ben has been busy with a number of announcements recently, the first of which was that she will be touring Japan in November. Her band came to Japan in the spring and this time around she will be performing solo in the tour that will consist of five shows in four cities. Accompanying her on the tour, aptly called “Two People from Taiwan” will be fellow countryman Hom Shenhao.
The second bit of news came from Tokyo’s fast rising indie label Hands and Moment, who will be releasing Skip Skip Ben Ben’s album Sacrifice Mountain Hills on October 22nd. The album, which features some brilliant artwork by Chou Yi, was previously released by Maybe Mars is absolutely worth checking out if you haven’t had a chance already.
The most recent news out of Ben Ben’s camp was the release of a limited edition split 7″ featuring SSBB and Hot&Cold. The limited edition vinyl is available in black and white via Chicago-based Gary Records’ Bandcamp page.
