North Californian duo OGIKUBO STATION have announced a run of headline UK tour dates in June 2019, the band’s first ever appearance on UK soil.
The pair’s debut album, We Can Pretend Like, is out now on all good digital service providers, with lead single ‘Take A Piece of All That’s Good’available to stream below.
Ogikubo Station is Maura Weaver of Ohio punks Mixtapes, and Asian Man Records founder Mike Park—simple chords, with simple melodies, with the simple goal of having fun playing music together.
Officially founded in 1996, Park’s now legendary Asian Man Records helped launch the careers of Alkaline Trio, Smoking Popes, Cayetana, Joyce Manor, Lawrence Arms & many more, and is still run out of his parents’ garage in Northern California.
“Depending on how you look at life, this is either a good thing or a bad thing,” says Park of the label’s ethos. “For me, it’s the only thing; or in other words: I like being a little label. This is how the label will remain. I do this for the love of music, not for financial gain or status recognition. I try my best to do the right things ethically and to believe in helping others instead of striving for profit over people.”
