posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The A-Kon event in Fort Worth, Texas announced on Friday that it will host musical duo GARNiDELiA as a musical guest at the convention. The event also announced on Wednesday that it will host the rock band BRADIO.
GARNiDELiA consists of composer Yoshinori Abe (toku) and vocalist Mai Mizuhashi (MARiA). The duo first worked together on "Color," the opening theme song of the Freezing anime, although they had not yet made the Garnidelia unit name at that point. The duo formally debuted in 2014 with their single "Ambiguous," which was used as the opening theme for the Kill la Kill anime. The group has since performed theme songs for anime such as The irregular at magic high school, Gundam: Reconguista in G, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, Qualidea Code, and The irregular at magic high school The Movie: The Girl Who Summons the Stars. The duo recently performed the ending theme song for the Fate/Apocrypha anime, and also performed the opening theme song for the Anime-Gataris and Beatless anime.
BRADIO performed the opening theme song for the Death Parade anime, and also performed the theme song for Peeping Life TV Season 1??. The four-member band released their first album Power of Life in June 2015, and released their second album Freedom in January 2017. The band's drummer Yuki Tanabe left the band in January.
A-Kon will be held from June 7-10 at the Fort Worth Convention Center. The event will also host Mika Kobayashi (Guilty Crown, Aldnoah.Zero, Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Attack on Titan insert song performances).
