MAXIMUM THE HORMONE to play solo show in New York City

TH STAFF
MAXIMUM THE HORMONE

MAXIMUM THE HORMONE will return to the United States for a solo show at New York's Best Buy Theater on October 27 following their appearance at KNOTFEST on October 25



The one-man live in New York will be a rare opportunity for American fans to see this powerful band best known in the West for their contributions "What's Up People?!" and "Zetsubou Billy" for the hit anime series Death Note.


Notorious for sold-out shows and high-voltage stage antics, MAXIMUM THE HORMONE's latest album (their 5th) Yoshuu Fukushuu won the #1 spot on Japan's Oricon Weekly Chart for 3 weeks straight after its release in 2013. Their concerts are in such high demand due to their insistence on smaller venues that a lottery system determines tickets for the sometimes 30,000+ applicants per show. 


For the release of Yoshuu Fukushuu, the band embarked on a 56-show tour across Japan spanning 2013-2014 and also made an appearance at Ozzfest 2013. Other recent tours include a sold-out headlining tour of Europe (France, UK, Belgium, and Germany) and co-starring events with Korn and the Dropkick Murphys.


Yoshuu Fukushuu (translated by the band as "Our Merciless Home'war'k")  was released in a 156-page manga package with 5 outrageous, adult-themed stories written by Maximum the Ryo-kun about his school days and teenage musical/sexual adventures. The album itself features extreme lyrics, heavy metal guitar, and death-voice, screaming vocals to match the persona of Japan's premiere hard rock band.


Tickets for MAXIMUM THE HORMONE at the Best Buy Theater are available now.
