Japanese Rock Icons [ALEXANDROS] Bringing Their Live Show to American Audiences For First Time This October
Japanese rock icons [ALEXANDROS] have announced their first ever U.S. tour, bringing the band's epic live show to select cities this October. The anticipation for a stateside tour has been building since the band's well-received appearance at SXSW in 2016. [ALEXANDROS] kick things off October 14th in Dallas, TX making their way to audiences across the country before wrapping the tour in New York City at the historic Gramercy Theatre. Tickets will be available for purchase on August 15th here: https://alexandros.jp/
Earlier this month, the band shared a special collaborative video for “Mosquito Bite” with the live-action film BLEACH - for which it will serve as the main theme song. BLEACH is a live-action adaptation of the best-selling comic book starring Sota Fukushi and directed by Shinsuke Sato, who has directed numerous hit Japanese films including “GANTZ”. It is one of the most anticipated films of the summer and [ALEXANDROS] will sing the theme song “Mosquito Bite” as well as a second featured track, “MILK”. Fans of the band have been enthralled with the Jrock quartet's latest offering, and the official video for “Mosquito Bite” has racked up over a million views in the few weeks since it's release. Both songs, along with three additional tracks, can be heard on the Mosquito Bite EP which was released on July 18th and is available for stream/purchase now at https://umj.lnk.to/mosquitobite.
Formed in 2007, [ALEXANDROS] have taken the Japanese rock scene by storm with the release of six albums and continuously sold out tours. The band has supported major rock bands such as Muse, Kasabian, and Primal Scream in Japan, as well as made appearances at international festivals like SXSW(US) and The Great Escape(UK). [ALEXANDROS] also hold their own yearly event, VIP Party, with this year's sold out concert being held August 16th at ZOZO Marine Stadium. The band signed with Universal Music Japan in 2015 and will release a new album in the fall.
