    Osaka Japan's legendary pop/punk Pioneers Shonen Knife continue their 30th Anniversary Celebration with 30 newly announced shows in the US/Canada as well as the release of a brand new studio album called Pop Tune.

    Pop Tune was recorded in Osaka in early 2012 after the bands wildly successful "Osaka Ramones" World Tour in 2011.

    Pop Tune will be released worldwide on June 6 (on Good Charamel Records in North America) and their 2012 North American tour will begin in Philadelphia this July.
