'Night Fishing Is Good' Tour 2008 in Sapporo
Background and production
In the same month, the band performed a national tour to promote the album, including a solo-billed performance at Bessie Hall in Sapporo as the final performance, on May 27, 2007.
For the rest of the year, the band worked on the production of their second album Night Fishing, which was released only half a year after their debut work, in January 2008.
The concert was recorded on March 8, 2008, at Penny Lane 24 in Sapporo.
It was one of the either concerts held by Sakanaction in their Night Fishing Is Good tour, but only one of two dates that were a full-length, solo concert.
The extended play compiles live takes of both of the promoted tracks on Go to the Future, "Mikazuki Sunset" and "Shiranami Top Water", as well as two of the three promotional tracks from Night Fishing, "Sample" and "Night Fishing Is Good".
Release and reception
The extended play was first announced on July 24, 2008 at Sakanaction's official website.
At the band's official MySpace page, footage of "Mikazuki Sunset" from the concert was uploaded.
In December, Sakanaction released their first physical single release, "Sen to Rei".
On the limited edition version of the release, a recording of "Yoru no Higashigawa" from the same concert was added as a bonus track.
All tracks are written by Ichiro Yamaguchi.
