Their roaring psychedelic from their last release, the debut album 'ZyouK', has got more savage and new electric sounds have led the band to be solider and deeper in the EP.
The feast in the musically unexplored country is dark, deep and full of insanity. Dance.
Also, it is confirmed that the band will tour across the UK to celebrate the release. The tour contains 5 shows including their first appearances of music festivals, Focus Wales 2016 and Raw Power Festival.

Qujaku (ex. The Piqnic) are a Japanese psychedelic band formed in 2013 and based in S
. Their music is gothic dark shoegaze, which reminds you of The Horrors, but it
also contains emotional expressions that J hizuoka, J apan
uniquely has, leading you to feel Scandinavian post rock like Sigur Ros. Aesthetic but also destructive, roar but also silence, Qujaku are a rare

debut album, 'ZyouK', which was influenced by Japanese avant-garde, from So I
Buried Records in October 2015, heading to deeper psychedelia. apan
