JapanFiles to Bring Ketchup Mania Back to the USA for Sakura-Con 2008

Dec 6th 2007
December 6, 2007 - Japanese pop-punk sensations ketchup mania will return to the USA for a special engagement at Sakura-Con 2008 in Seattle, WA.

ketchup mania has been red-hot since winning Shojo Beat's "Best Japanese Punk Group" award in the 2007 Music Issue.

In June 2007, ketchup mania partnered with JapanFiles.com to make their debut in America at A-Kon 18 in Dallas, Texas. The band rocked the stage for over 2000 fans, their biggest audience ever. "It was like a dream," said singer Hiro, who couldn't stop smiling after the show. "Meeting our fans in the USA made me so happy!"

ketchup mania returned to Japan for non-stop touring, with songs from their first Toys Factory release " U.R.G.E." and their chart-topping CD "Greetings from Tokyo" dominating the set list.

In August 2007, they released the follow-up CD "L.O.V.E." For their performance at Sakura-Con, the band will play hits including "Namida Vacuum Sound," "Real Yaayo," "Life Size," and tracks from their upcoming third release on the Toys' Factory label.
