The organizers of FanimeCon announced last week that Japanese hip-hop group Home Made Kazoku will perform at the convention in San Jose, California as part of their 10th anniversary tour.
Home Made Kazoku is composed of vocalists Micro and Kuro along with DJ U-Ichi. Micro and Kuro both lived in the United States; Micro grew up in Kentucky, while Kuro lived in Chicago until he was 12. The group formed in 2004 and have since performed theme songs for Bleach, Eureka Seven, Naruto Shippuden, and Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Bonds. They released their seventh studio album, 3RISE, in Japan on September 12, 2012, and digitally for overseas fans on January 1.
Sony also announced the band will perform during this year's Anime Weekend Atlanta convention on September 26-28.
The group has twice performed at the Otakon convention in Baltimore, including last year.
FanimeCon will take place May 23-26. The convention is also hosting GAINAX anime director Hiroyuki Yamaga and author Gilles Poitras.
