Little is known about the enigmatic rock band blank paper, who will perform at Otakuthon in Montreal on August 5. All the general public knows is that it appears to not be human.

A glance at blank paper’s backstory reveals it is not human at all. In fact, it is a new legal sound-based drug from the future, that can bring relief to negative feelings. Its street name is “bpm”—blank paper medicine.

As such, blank paper has no “members”, only “components”. The entity known as blank paper includes two vocal components: C45P3R and T3R354. C45P3R possesses a biologically male singing voice. It mainly creates tracks and plays musical instruments. T3R354 possesses a biologically female singing voice, with an exceptionally high tonal range. It mainly writes lyrics.

Despite having only two songs out, blank paper performed as guests of honor at Japan Expo in France, as well as HYPER JAPAN in the UK.
