Having recently released their second major single “Daydreaming / Choose me” on July 19th, it has been announced that BAND-MAID have been appointed head cheerleaders in the Kanto region for the high school and junior high school light music club contest “We are Sneaker Ages.”
The contest, held in various regions around Japan, sees young students who are part of the light music clubs in their schools come together to perform. The Kanto contest is based on the concept that “everybody and anyone has a story to tell.”
Members of BAND-MAID were part of the light music club when they were at school, and now, they perform all around the world with their unique “maid×rock” concept. They receive praise for the true musical talent they possess The band were therefore requested to be the head cheerleading group to convey their stories and experience to students.
Expressing her joy at the band being appointed head cheerleaders, BAND-MAID guitarist Kanami, who was in the light music club during her school days, said: “I am absolutely delighted that I have the opportunity to cheer on all of my student masters and princesses who have a dream and are working so hard. I hope to help towards making them all come true, if even a little, with the experience I have gained up to now. All of us in BAND-MAID are still realizing our dream, so I want to go ahead and work hard together with all of the student masters and princesses!”
BAND-MAID have a lot of upcoming shows to look forward, both inside and outside Japan. They will embark on their solo tour across 10 locations in Japan starting from September. They will also be heading on an overseas tour, as well as performing at the first ever Summer Sonic Shanghai 2017.
As BAND-MAID push forward in their question for world domination, they show no signs of backing down any time soon and continue to go ahead full force. Their support for the students will no doubt light a fire in their music.
BAND-MAID are a fierce and exciting group and we mustn’t take our eyes off them even for a moment.
※Members of BAND-MAID who were enrolled in the light music club during their school years are Kanami (Guitar), Misa (Bass), and Akane (Drums).
