Indie avant-rock trio eX-Girl releases its second album in the US on April 13. Titled Endangered Species, the album will be released by San Francisco label Alternative Tentacles. According to the band’s relaunched website (www.exgirl-kero.com), eX-Girl embarks on a US tour starting May 11.

eX-Girl released its debut album in the US three years ago on Ipecac Records, run by ex-Faith No More singer Mike Patton. Since the album’s release, eX-Girl’s line-up has changed. Original guitarist Chihiro was replaced by Keiko, formerly of Super Junky Monkey. Keiko, however, left the band in 2003, being replaced by Zoren.
