Miho Hatori and Yuka Honda, the duo behind the quirky hip-hop/pop group Cibo Matto, announced today that they're getting back together for a new album and tour. The first leg of the tour, which they're calling "Yeah Basically Cibo Matto," launches June 21 in Seattle, with later dates on the East Coast in July. Hatori and Honda also say they're working on a batch of new songs for an as-yet-untitled album, due out early next year. It'll be the band's first release since 1999's Stereo*Type A.

Check out this teaser video, featuring a clip of one of Cibo Matto's new songs:

The band says it'll also make new clips available in the coming weeks on its website.

Here's a video for one of my favorite tunes by the band, "Know Your Chicken" from 1996's Viva! La Woman.
