Devparade, an unprecedented heavyweight band which the 5 members collectively weighing over 1,250lbs! In June 2006, they were formed by limitation of 220lbs minimum chubby musicians from renowned indie bands.
During their first band rehearsal, they couldn't all fit in the elevator due to their excessive weight, and after that rehearsal they went to a Ramen noodle restaurant but couldn't get inside because they were too big. They've apparently thought about breaking up at the time, but began to progress steadily through their various live performances and the release of their photo book (Shibou★Yugi) and DVD (Chanko DE Chanko).
Finally, Devparade made their major debut in June 2008! Their debut single “Body & Soul / cosmic mind”, and their strong impact as an idol/”visual kei” artist has received a high acclaim by the public, and they've been offered from many various Television network including a guest appearance at the notable music TV program, “HEY! HEY! HEY! (FUJI TV).
With their unique love & peace slogan, “ALL WEAPONS TO CHOPSTICKS”, Devparade has performed throughout Japan including the SUMMER SONIC 08 festival! Stay tune on their future activities!
