SPYAIR Makes European Live Debut in Paris While New Album Sells Out

SPYAIR once again prove that they're one of the Japan's hottest new musical exports as the pop-rock quartet sent the people of Paris crazy with their European live debut in France's capital on Sunday 21 September. The band, whose brand new album MILLION is released today (22 September) across the UK and Europe, was invited to perform in Paris for Tokyo Crazy Kawaii; a new touring festival that showcases what's currently hot in Japan to the world.

All expectations were smashed as the packed crowd filling the open air stage at the Parc Floral venue rushed to grab a copy of SPYAIR's new CD, available at the event a day before release. All copies sold out within minutes of going on sale.

Entertainment from Japan has been gaining major success in Paris, where events such as Japan Expo have been reported to draw crowds in excess of 200,000.

SPYAIR's vocalist IKE comments, 'We came here to see the scene with our own eyes and see if it's true. Anime, manga and video games from Japan have already been accepted here, but music? I wasn't so sure… but wow, their acceptance to us blew me away! What an audience! What a country!”

Bass player MOMIKEN adds, 'This is just the first step. We hope to be back in Europe with our own headliner show next time!'

MILLION is out now across the UK and Europe through JPU Records. The physical release contains three exclusive bonus tracks and includes several of SPYAIR's songs from some of anime's biggest franchised (Bleach, Gundam, Gintama). It also features an additional booklet with all lyrics translated into English as well as Romaji.
