toe doku-en-kai


At the twenty-year apex of their career, the Japanese quartet toe will add another captivating live release to their extensive catalog with the feature-length performance, DOKU-EN-KAI.

In the same electric vein of beloved live releases RGBDVD and CUT_DVD, DOKU-EN-KAI shows the band completely absorbed by their element. Kinetic, impassioned, frenzied, and with palpable energy, DOKU-EN-KAI brings toe’s renown and allure into sharp, unmistakable focus.

Shot ‘in the round’ at le Poisson Rouge in NYC, and directed by Josh Coll, DOKU-EN-KAI provides an immersive escape for all of us yearning for the return of live music. Throughout DOKU-EN-KAI’s 85-minute runtime, toe effortlessly split open the musical spectrum and rearrange its pieces into their signature sound that draws on elements of math-rock, jazz, hardcore, and post-rock.
