BAND-MAID is one of Japan’s hottest up-and-coming all-girl rock acts. Its five members have been turning heads across the globe with their cute, authentic maid aesthetics combined with powerful, skilled musicianship ever since their first two music videos went viral last year.
Brand New MAID, the band’s latest album, will also be their first to get an international release and will be available across the UK and Europe courtesy of JPU Records from June 17, 2016. The CD version contains an exclusive bonus track as well as extra booklet containing lyric translations and transliterations into English.
Fans can get a copy early and meet the band at MCM London Comic Con, the UK and Europe’s largest pop culture show, taking place between May 27-29. BAND-MAID will be performing on the Fringe Stage on the Saturday and Sunday of the event, as well as the event’s after party. Additionally, they will be part of a daily panel exploring Japan’s music scene, taking place on the Pop Asia Stage, as well as signing and meeting fans from JPU Records’ booth each day. More than 130,000+ people are estimated to attend and weekend tickets have already sold out.
