DYGL finally made their album debut with Say Goodbye to Memory Den, the band’s first LP since forming in 2012.
Mostly comprised of members from the indie pop outfit Ykiki Beat, DYGL (pronounced Day Glo) are shaping up to be Japan’s next top indie rock export.
Produced by The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. and recorded in NYC, Say Goodbye to Memory Den sports 14-tracks of top rate indie tunes catered towards the international music market. Upon release the album debuted at #26 on the Oricon daily album chart.
Performing at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas, DYGL are now preparing to kick off their first nationwide/Asia tour. As well as shows up and down Japan, the tour will take them to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea, and China. The tour also includes a set at this year’s FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL, one of Japan’s biggest music festivals.
Last week the band dropped a video for the first cut off the record Let It Out directed by Ian Perlman on their official YouTube channel.
