Japanese Breakfast announces tour, shares new video

The solo project of Michelle Zauner, Japanese Breakfast, has shared a new music video for her track “Road Head.” The clip, directed by Zauner, follows her character as she eats instant ramen, chain smokes cigarettes, and shares her life with a masked monster. “‘Road Head’ is the fifth music video [director of photography] Adam Kolodny and I have collaborated on,” Zauner said in a statement. “For this one we wanted to focus on staging and an exaggerated color palette. We were inspired by Fallen Angels and ‘Twin Peaks.’” “Road Head” will appear on Japanese Breakfast’s upcoming album Soft Sounds From Another Planet, which is set to be out July 14th via Dead Oceans.

Zauner has also announced new tour dates. She has shows with Tegan and Sara, (Sandy) Alex G, Cende, Yohuna, Mannequin Pussy, and Spirit of the Beehive. Find her schedule below.
