Fusing J-Pop, indie and plenty of samples, bis arrived amid ferocious hype.
Signed to the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal imprint, the band attracted a devoted cult following but never quite won over the mainstream (in this country, at least).
Reforming in 2010 for a handful of live shows, bis have remained a sporadic concert experience. Headlining last year's Indietracks festival, the band began introducing new material into their set.
Now bis have outlined plans for a new album. 'data Panik etcetera' will be released on May 5th, with new track 'Rulers And The States' emerging online.
Check it out below.
So that's that. One more time... here's 'Eurodisco'.
