Moon King’s Daniel Benjami and Maddy White will be releasing the second EP in the Obsession series, Obsession II on April 20th, through Fucked Up’s Mike Haliechuk’s One Big Silence Records. Reportedly, the EP will have the band pushing their sound towards something akin to early 90s alt rock – think Jane’s Addiction and the Jesus and Mary Chain. However, on “Appel,” the first single from the new effort, the sound strikes me as being decidedly influenced by the Jesus and Mary Chain, or Love and Rockets.

The band will be touring to support their new effort, and it’ll include a March 6th stop at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium; an April 16th stop at the Bowery Ballroom; and last but not least, an April 17th stop at Hoboken’s Maxwell’s.
