RADWIMPS

Creating very original master pieces with unique lyrical world, RADWIMPS has been described as “New Invention”. Their music keeps high level of musicianship while still being pop as they flawlessly cross over various genres. Soon after their debut around the age of 20, they have become one of the most popular 4-piece rock bands with cutting edge style in the Japanese music scene. All of their studio albums marked the sales of over 100k, and their concert tickets are one of the hottest tickets in Japan causing the toughest battles among fans.

The band was formed in 2001.
In 2003, RADWIMPS released their self-titled indie album. The major label debut was the single “25 Kome No Senshokutai” in November, 2005.
After the release of their 7th studio album “Batsu To Maru To Tsumi To” in 2013, the band went on the road, in Feb. 2014, with the biggest tour in their history including their 4 overseas shows, marking the total of 220,000 audiences.
In 2015, the band celebrated their 10th anniversary with the first European tour (Paris/Cologne/Berlin/London) and the second Asian tour (Seoul/Taipei). (Right before the tour, the drummer Satoshi Yamaguchi’s chronic disease worsened to the point that he had to take a break from the band.) Back in Japan, they went on the first ever joint gig tour with 11 of their respecting fellow bands, and a headline gig at Makuhari Messe to conclude a successful year with more than 30,000 audiences.
RADWIMPS composed and played the entire soundtrack for the critically acclaimed, award winning anime movie “Your Name.”, which opened in Japan during the summer 2016 and is scheduled to run from April 7th Stateside. The movie was also welcomed with big success in the UK in Nov. 2016. In addition to the movie becoming a record breaking hit around the world, the soundtrack they produced has also been highly acclaimed.

RADWIMPS released their latest album “Human Bloom” in November, 2016 and is currently on the road for nationwide arena tour to support the album. “Human Bloom Tour 2017″ will visit 12 cities with 17 shows including 2 nights at the legendary Budokan on May 9th and 10th.
