With a career spanning 25 years, 11 albums and countless single releases, Tokyo noise rock band Melt-Banana return to the UK this October for what will be the band’s 11th tour of these shores.

Originally forming within the Japanese noise and hardcore scenes of the mid 90’s, Melt-Banana’s unique style of grindcore and noise, combined with experimental electronica and pop song structures, has earned them a devoted fanbase across the globe, touring with the likes of Wire, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Tool, MGMT, Metz and Napalm Death, as well as a five month stint of their own around the USA in 2015 supporting their 2000-2009 singles compilation album Return of 13 Hedgehogs.
