Band Biography

WITH WESTERN interest in the more flamboyant end of Japanese rock as high as its ever been, the time is right for MUCC to advance their profile outside of their native country.

Formed just over a decade ago, the band's rise to fame started with a series of demo recordings, local shows and independent albums; it was very much a case of paying all of the dues possible, of doing things their way, prior to signing the deal with Universal Music in 2003.

What followed was a period of intense activity, both in the studio and on the road, with these broad ranging J-rockers issuing a series of singles, albums and DVDs, much to the delight of their ever-growing fanbase.

In 2005, MUCC left Japan to perform live in both Germany and France - a trip that included an appearance at the highly prestigious Wacken Festival in Germany; then, the following year, they were back in Europe again, playing further dates in Germany and France, before heading off to the US to appear at the annual Otakon (anime convention) in Baltimore.

Right from the start, MUCC have taken a bold approach, not afraid to explore left field ideas and experiment with different styles, both relating to their music and the way they present themselves visually, in terms of artwork, photo sessions and video clips.

Not surprisingly, latest studio album 'Shion' is conceived very much in this tradition, and now UK fans have an extensive run of live dates to savour as well. See 'Gigs' for more details.
