Read all about it! For the first times, fans of Japan’s undisputed kings of visual kei, the GazettE, will be given all area access to the act’s long awaited world tour with the release of their debut English-language documentary on 21 April 2014 from London’s JPU Records. See the trailer here.

Crowds upwards of 20,000 packed out venues across Europe and Latin America in anticipation to see the GazettE return after six years of international silence. This 100-minute film captures that tour, from fans ambushing the band at airports, to behind-the-scenes footage both on and off the road, to live clips of the GazettE’s sold out performances in each of the nine cities of the tour, and offers an unparalleled glimpse of the members’ time off as they toured across the world in September 2013.

In the countries in North America, Latin America, Oceania, and Asia, this audio visual work will be available through iTunes store. The DVD will be region 0 and contains English language subtitles, a feature not included in the original Japanese release.

During one of their last trips to the UK the band managed to pick up the NEO Magazine Award for best music act, as well as release their first fan-funded album Sugoi Indeed.

At the time of writing, seven dates have been announced:
Wednesday 30th April: Electric Eel Shock, The Full Moon, Cardiff.
Thursday 1st May: Electric Eel Shock, The Compass, Chester.

Expect plenty of R’n’R antics, from drummer’s Gian’s four-stick (and naked) playing style, to frontman Aki’s custom Flying V (an actual V!) and plenty of heavy rock influenced antics.

Electric Eel Shock had previously toured with Bloodhound Gang in 2005, and even had a bathroom-based cameo in the punk group’s Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss music video.

We’ll leave you with the video to one of our favourite tracks; Rock & Roll Can Rescue the World:

Crossfaith – The Evolution Video Revealed

crossfaith-evolution

Rising Japanese metalcore force Crossfaith dropped the official music video to The Evolution, taken from their latest album APOCALYZE. The video packs pyrotechnics, bearded hacker-types from the future and a retro-esque stormtrooper look-a-like baddy that’s going around slapping stickers on young ladies’ lips. The nerve…

Currently Crossfaith are on tour of the UK with Limp Bizkit as part of the Kerrang! Tour 2014, and will return this summer for the Download Festival.
