The Sports Nippon newspaper reports that the six-woman Japanese ska band Oreskaband will release its first album in America next spring. After meeting up in middle school and playing as a band in high school, the women from Osaka recorded the "Pinocchio" ending theme for Naruto and the "Tsumasaki" ending theme for Bleach. The group performed as the first Japanese artists on the 46-city Warped Tour before 600,000 people, and they also performed at Anime Expo last year. The American indie label Side One Dummy Records gave them the record offer.
