Japan’s all-girl guitar group SCANDAL mark their international debut with a special edition of their sixth album HELLO WORLD, out now on iTunes, and released from London’s JPU Records on CD across Europe from 19 January 2015. Preorder now direct from JPU Records.

Living up to its name, HELLO WORLD will also be supported with a headline world tour, including a show at France’s Le Bataclan in Paris on 25 April 2015 (tickets), London’s O2 Islington Academy on 26 April 2015 (tickets), Germany’s Weststadthalle in Essen on 30 April 2015 (tickets) – plus headline dates in the USA, Mexico, Singapore, Taiwan and a stadium show in Hong Kong.

Since becoming the crowned winners of the New Artist category at the 51st Japan Record Awards, SCANDAL’s momentum has blasted the girls’ cute, pop-punk tunes to the very top of Japan’s music industry. All five of their prior albums have made it into the top five of Japan’s official album chart, and 17 of their singles in to the top 20 Singles Chart – six entering at position five or higher! Their music has featured in a host of popular TV shows and films, including hit anime series Bleach and the latest Pokémon film.

HELLO WORLD sees the girls return with one of their strongest, most determined records to date and sees them collaborate with legendary icon Tetsuya Komuro; “the most successful music producer in Japanese music history” (The Guardian). It also includes two exclusive bonus tracks for the CD version, only available in the physical format and not included on the original Japanese version of the album.

SPYAIR Release ‘BEST’ Album in the UK and Europe from 12 January

SPYAIR BESTJapanese pop-rock squad SPYAIR will release ‘BEST’ on CD and digital formats in the UK and Europe from 12 January 2015, collating all 14 of their massive hit singles so far, plus two brand new songs! It’s also the first time many of the songs have been available outside of Japan.

Since smashing on to the scene in 2010 with their debut single ‘LIAR’, which also became the theme song to Japanese TV school drama Hammer Session!, SPYAIR have experienced a mighty ten top-40 singles in Japan and had many of their tracks become theme tunes in anime and film; including The Amazing Spider-Man, Bleach and Gintama. All are included on ‘BEST’.

Due to popular demand, SPYAIR were picked up by London’s JPU Records for European distribution, leading to the group’s YouTube channel being available outside of Japan for the first time. There, the official music videos to the songs included on ‘BEST’ have already racked up viewing figures upwards of 28 million.

SPYAIR BEST

Le groupe de pop-rock japonais SPYAIR sortira « BEST » en format CD et digital en France le 12 Janvier 2015. Il s’agira d’une compilation des 14 meilleurs tubes du groupe jusqu’à présent, avec l’ajout de deux nouvelles chansons inédites! En outre, ce sera la première fois que beaucoup de ces chansons seront disponibles en dehors du Japon.

Depuis les débuts du groupe en 2010 avec leur premier single «LIAR», devenu la chanson thème du drama japonais «Hammer Session», SPYAIR ont classé dix de leurs singles au Top 40 national et vu plusieurs de leurs titres devenir les chansons thème de films et d’animés tels que «The Amazing Spider-Man», «Bleach», ou encore «Gintama». Toutes ces pistes sont incluses dans «BEST».

En raison de la demande populaire, JPU Records (Londres) a choisi de distribuer la musique de SPYAIR en Europe, entraînant la visibilité de la chaîne YouTube du groupe en dehors du Japon pour la première fois.

Les clips officiels des chansons de « BEST » y ont déjà obtenu plus de 28 millions de vues.

Boom Boom Satellites Reveals New Video to ‘ONLY BLOOD’

Boom Boom Satellites ONLY BLOOD

Japan’s legendary electronic pioneers Boom Boom Satellites mark their return with the worldwide release of their new music video ‘ONLY BLOOD’ on YouTube.

ONLY BLOOD, with lyrics fully in English, breaks 1.5 years of silence from duo Michiyuki Kawashima and Masayuki Nakano, and follows on from their hit album EMBRACE, which received a European and UK release on CD and digital formats courtesy of JPU Records.

The music video has been created by visionary producer Taiyo Yamamoto, whose creations have featured in projects involving the anime film Evangelion 3.0, digital music phenomenon Miku Hatsune and the video game Beatmania IIDX20 Tricoro.

ONLY BLOOD has been teasing audiences in Japan since May, when it was featured in the trailer for upcoming thriller MONSTERZ, featuring Tatsuya Fujiwara (Battle Royale, Death Note, Arrietty).

Last year Boom Boom Satellites cancelled 23-dates of their EMBRACE 2013 TOUR when guitarist and vocalist Michiyuki was diagnosed with the symptoms of a brain tumour.

This year Boom Boom Satellites have made a strong return to the live stage, performing at Japan’s major music festivals, including Summer Sonic 2014, Rising Sun Rock Festival 2014 and Rock In Japan Festival 2014 amongst others.

On originally seeing Boom Boom Satellites perform in London, Mark Roland featured the pair as his pick of the week in Melody Maker, stating; “They are the best band I’ve ever seen. Monster beats, Chemical flavour, the drums, the drums, the drums! The sooner you get Boom Boom Satellites orbiting your stratosphere, the happier you will be.”
