ORESKABAND to Release 1st US LP

ORESKABAND to Release 1st US LP
Coming to stores and iTunes this August

Fresh out of Japan comes a new cure for depression! Listening to ORESKABAND's cheerful, ska-rock tunes will leave a smile on your face and your head bopping. Alternative Press raves, “goddamn if it's not the cutest stuff in the world!” It's hard to disagree.

The teen girl sextet has already taken the Japanese pop music scene by storm with the release of their EP Ore and the 2007 debut LP WAO!! (short for “We Are ORESKABAND!!”). American fans won't have to wait much longer with the U.S exclusive CD, ORESKABAND, (which combines Ore and WAO!!) set for an August 7th release. The album will simultaneously become available on iTunes and most digital music distributors.

ORESKABAND formed in 2003 when middle school classmates from Osaka, Japan, IKASU, TAE-SAN, LEADER, SAKI, MORIKO, and TOMI met in band class, and decided to start their own band. After building an underground buzz with their energetic live shows, the girls started high school with a record deal – ORESKABAND was signed to Sony Music Japan in 2006.

ORESKABAND made their US live debut this year at SXSW where their infectious songs and personalities made them one of the festival's top new discoveries. The band has also headlined at Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, CA during their participation of Anime Expo, the nation's largest anime convention, and enthused 40,000+ attendees gathered from all over the country and overseas with the concert as well as a panel and three autograph sessions during the convention held June 29-July 2.

ORESKABAND will return to the US in August for a string of Warped Tour dates.
