It’s been quite a year for indie darling Japanese Breakfast. But, I mean, when you release a record as amazing as Soft Sounds from Another Planet, it only makes sense that everyone everywhere’s going to want a chance to see a live performance of said record.

So although Michelle Zauner’s earnest, electro-ambient pop tunes have been sounding off at all corners of the earth for a while now (she and the crew are currently sharing her songs with the Eastern side of the planet with an Asia / Australia tour) Japanese Breakfast has just announced another ring of shows back in the States after just a tiny — but much deserved — winter break.

Starting February in Zauner’s early hometown of Seattle, the tour will conclude with a massive (current) hometown celebration at Union Transfer on June 3rd. Marking just under a one year time span from opening for (Sandy) Alex G at the fave Philly venue, this headlining return will definitely be cause for some serious jamming. Also, since this past fall saw the former R5 Productions intern selling out First Unitarian Church where she used to mop floors, it’s only fitting now that the past staff member at Union Transfer further expands her badass musical conquest. Peep her tweet below:

Tickets for the gig go on sale this Wednesday at 10:00 AM, find those bad boys here, and watch the band’s recent stop at NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert below.
