ORESKABAND returns to U.S. for 2 shows in July


Super energetic all-girl ska band ORESKABAND from Japanreturns to America for 2 shows on the East Coast.

ORESKABANDcreated anime themes for Bleach and Naruto.

The members include:iCason vocals and guitar,taeon drums,Tomion bass,SAKIon the trumpet,HAYAMIon trombone, andmoricoon the saxaphone and keyboard (she is currently on hiatus).

Their story began about a decade ago in Osaka, when a few middle school brassband members got together without much thought and formed "We're Kasu KasuAmerican Rozun Ska Band with Cutter Shirts". Of course, the band's original namehad to be abandoned because a certain venue said their name was too long and wascausing trouble for the graphic designer. The girls henceforth called themselves"ORESKABAND" for short.

The band's first major debut came in the form of "Ore" in 2006, when they were stillin the 12th grade. Before long, their success brought them on stage in Austin, Texasfor SXSW ("South by South West"), which was immediately followed up by their full-album release, "ORESKABAND" in Japan and the U.S.

Their influence in the U.S. reached an all-time high during "WARPED TOUR 2008",

where the six girls hit 46 cities, a first for a Japanese band, and even collaborated

with Reel Big Fish and Katy Perry among others.

Over the next five years, they went forward to conquer Japan. Starting with "What a

Wonderful World Tour 2008 - 2009", followed by "Rock in Japan Festival 2009",

"Summer Sonic 09" "Set Stock 09", "ORESKABAND presents ei-ei-oh!!! Tour '10", and

wrapping it up with the "Arabaki Rock Fest 12" and a live performance at Tokyo

Dome for a 20,000-person audience.

Now, in 2015, the one and only all-female Ska band is pioneering unexploredmusical territory, ready to leave their mark on history. For show details, see below:
