MUCC's first US album “Best of MUCC” released Feb. 26


Tatsuro (Vocal) Miya (Guitar) YUKKE (Bass) SATO-chi (Drums)

In 1997, Miya (Guitar) formed MUCC with SATO-chi (Dr)in the wake of meeting with Tatsuro (Vocal) when they were high school students in their hometown, Ibaraki. YUKKE (Bass) joined the band in 1999 and at this moment MUCC had a perfect lineup.

They kept playing a live show with emotional melody line from Japanese exotic pop songs and heavy sound. In the result, the number of audience increased steadily.

In 2005, their hard work got attention from the world. MUCC was invited to perform in Germany and France. They performed at “Wacken Open Air” in Germany, which is the largest rock music festival in the world.

In 2006, MUCC stayed busy doing another tour in Europe. And expand their activities in the US market. MUCC was invited to perform at OTAKON convention, which was held in Baltimore.

Their debut performance in the US blew the audience away. Their aggressive performance made powerful and energetic sound which shocked many fans in US.

Followed up by that convention performance, MUCC had another performance in US.

In 2007, they were invited by J Rock Revolution at the Wiltern Theatre.

Their songs pull everyone's heartstrings and have impressive messages. That is "hope which exists in despair" and "depth in loneliness.” MUCC is definitely one and only for singing about “human” and new generates in the world.
