FRENETIC JAPANESE ROCK BAND GACHARIC SPIN TO PLAY A SPECIAL U.S. CONCERT AT 2015 J-POP SUMMIT
Flamboyant All-Girl Pop Rock Outfit Plays West Coast Show In San Francisco In Support Of Latest Single “Don’t Let Me Down” Featured On Dragon Ball Kai Anime Series
San Francisco, CA, and Tokyo, Japan, July 27, 2015 – Leading Japanese record label Victor Entertainment Corp. has announced the first-ever West Coast U.S. live show by recording artist Gacharic Spin. The frenetic all-girl rock band comes to San Francisco on Saturday August 8th for a special one-night-only concert at the 2015 J-POP SUMMIT.
Celebrating its 5th anniversary this year, Gacharic Spin is a true force of musical power and renowned as one of the most aggressive and flamboyant all-female bands from Japan!
Taking its name from the word, “Gacha,” derived from the Japanese word gacha-gacha, meaning “clattering,” each members’ character and complex sound reverberates and mixes perfectly with singers’ Hana and Oreoreona’s melodic vocals, to result in a spectacularly unique and danceable sound. Drawing influences from everything from dance and pop, to rock and industrial music, Gacharic Spin’s energy-filled live performances and potent musicianship have made them a band to watch! The band’s next full length album is set for release this fall by Victor Entertainment.
The 2015 J-POP SUMMIT is San Francisco’s annual Japanese pop culture celebration and takes place Saturday and Sunday August 8th & 9th at the historic Fort Mason Center in the city’s Marina district. Tickets and V.I.P Passes are available now at: www.J-POP.com.
Gacharic Spin consists of F Chopper KOGA (bass), Haha (lead vocals & drums), OREOREONA (lead vocals & keyboards), TOMO-ZO (guitar), and Mai (dancer).
Less than a year after forming in Tokyo in 2010, the band appeared on Japanese national TV on broadcaster NHK’s popular program, “Music Japan.” Gacharic Spin initially released several singles independently and is active in variety of fields, also serving as the backing band for pop singer, Nanase Aikawa, and working as mo-cap (motion capture) actors for Sony PSP Project Diva video game which features the massively popular virtual vocaloid pop diva, “Hatsune Miku.” Members of Gacharic Spin even coached members of Japan’s legendary idol group – AKB48 – for their performance in the “GIVE ME FIVE!” music video.
Gacharic Spin is signed to Victor Entertainment Corp., and marked their major label debut earlier this year with, “Gachatto Best 2010-2014,” an album collecting choice tracks from their indie years. In Japan, the album peaked at No.7 on Oricon’s daily chart and No.20 on the Oricon weekly charts.
In February 2015, Gacharic Spin released its first single for Victor Entertainment called “Sekira Liar / Tokenai Candy.” This was a double A-side single release, and Tokenai Candy was also the debut single from Gacha Gacha Dancers – Mai & Arisa. The band’s second Victor Entertainment single, “Don’t Let Me Down,” was released on June 3rd and is also currently featured as the ending theme song for the hit anime series, Dragon Ball Z Kai.
