Second Fushitsusha album of 2012 incoming

Another new album by Keiji Haino's Fushitsusha is on the way for 18 September, via Heartfast records. The album is titled Mabushii Itazura Na Inori, and is the second this year, following Hikari To Nazukeyo (Let's Name It Light) earlier this year (also on Heartfast), which featured a trio of Haino with early Fushitsusha drummer Ikuro Takahashi and Altered States bass player Mitsuru Nasuno.

Haino essentially mothballed Fushitsusha over ten years ago, but has resurrected the project recently, and has played a number of shows, including the Freedommune festival in Japan, which was streamed live online. Fushitsusha are also playing a date in London, Krakow's Unsound festival, and Tusk in Newcastle.
