Following a few quieter months, popular rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN have chosen to make their new song “Ribbon” available for digital download starting today. A breezy, gently lilting number, “Ribbon” has already been picked as the latest CM track for Samsung’s “Galaxy” line of phones.
In support of this release, the band have uploaded the footage of the song’s first live performance, which was streamed back on February 10th to officially close their 20th anniversary year. Furthermore, BUMP will also be holding a nationwide arena tour starting in September and concluding early next year in January.
