Visual rock fivesome SCREW will celebrate their sixth anniversary with a 13 date European tour. The tour will begin with a show at London’s Underworld on Wednesday 30 May 2012, and will continue across Europe into June.
SCREW were originally formed in the March of 2006 by vocalist Byo and bass-player Yuto, both former members of indie group JOKER. They were soon joined by guitarists kazuki and Jin, who were members of Clover and LiViNG DEAD, respectively. After several shows, they concluded the year with a set at Winter Romantic Fes.3day event organised by Kanoma (ex-Fatima) and KAMIJO (Versailles). It wasn’t until the next year that they pick up the name SCREW, switch label to PS Indies and gain their support guitarist Manabu as an official member.
Currently, only one of the band’s albums has made it to Europe, courtesy of CLJ Records; X-Rays (Limited Edition) from 2009.
