Japanese Rock-Electronic duo Boom Boom Satellites to release album and announce US Tour

Genre bending Japanese Rock-Electronic duo BOOM BOOM SATELLITES to release best-of album OVER AND OVER - Digital/Disc On Demand: Sept. 14th, In-stores: Oct. 19th, 2010 on Sony Independent Network (SIN) and announce upcoming US tour dates.

Thoroughly re-mastered and re-mixed by the members themselves, OVER AND OVER allows listeners to appreciate it as a completely new album rather than a simple compilation of pre-existing tracks, 6 of which were never before available in America. Featuring 17 tracks that span over 6 Albums and 3 EPs, OVER AND OVER is the duo's first US released best-of album.

Absorbing both electronic and rock elements, Tokyo's BOOM BOOM SATELLITES created a completely new and unknown sound; a sound that NME stated was “like THE PRODIGY fighting Underworld with bloody big sticks.” This sound not only established them as an exciting new band, but also boosted their profile as one of the most distinguished music producers in Japan.

The brain child of Bassist/programmer Masayuki Nakano and guitarist/vocalist Michiyuki Kawashima, BOOM BOOM SATELLITES have been combining distortion-drenched rock and punk guitars, with electronic dance music and heavy jazz elements to constantly evolve and refine their innovative sound over the last decade.

In support of OVER AND OVER, Boom Boom Satellites will be launching their OVER AND OVER US Tour in October 2010. Tour stops will include: Oct. 6th - Philadelphia, Oct. 8th – Albany, Oct. 12th – Delaware, Oct. 13 – DC, Oct. 14th Baltimore, Oct. 16th Connecticut, Oct. 17th - Boston, Oct. 19th - New England, Oct. 21st - NY/CMJ, Oct. 25th - LA, Oct. 27th - San Francisco, Oct. 29th - Portland, Oct. 30th - Seattle, more dates TBA. This will come off the heels of their Japan 2010 Tour which featured them on the main stage of the legendary Fuji Rock Festival, alongside Massive Attack and Atoms For Peace, and above Vampire Weekend and Donavan Frankenreiter. Their bombastic three-piece live show featuring female drummer Yoko Fukuda is not to be missed.

It's not only music fans who are captivated with their mind blowing live performances, their music has also caught the attention of prominent anime film creators and Hollywood motion picture producers. A number of tracks from the group's album, Full of Elevating Pleasures, contributed to the soundtrack of the CGI anime film Appleseed. "Easy Action" was included on the soundtrack of the mammoth anime film Vexille. Their tracks "Scatterin' Monkey" and "4 A Moment of Silence" from their first album Out Loud, were featured in the film The Dark Knight and "Shut Up And Explode" became the opening theme song for the PlayStation Store exclusive and later television anime series Xam'd: Lost Memories.
