fade is a 5-piece band from Japan, the band which continues to be an eclectic and unrivaled melange of east and west, and a front runner in the Japanese contemporary rock scene. This band’s strength and scope is its ability to draw on the cultural duality of music and experience shared between the 5 members.

Working with Jason Miller (gODHEAD), Markku Lappaleinen (ex. Hoobastank), and Erik Gregory (programming engineer, credited in Linkin Park’s remix album Reanimation) led to the release of 2 EPs A Moment of Truth and Under The Sun. And from their 2nd EP A Moment of Truth, track Beautiful was showcased in the nationally acclaimed film "Rainbow Song," produced by Japanese cinema icon Shunji Iwai (Swallow Tale Butterfly, Picnic, etc.) in 2006.

fade is poised to transfer this momentum to the road again in 2007, and begin touring their new material up and down Japan in the first of a series of high velocity events known as the Decade of Influence Tour. In the interim, the band head back into the studio to record their newest album To Find A Better Tomorrow, mixed by one of the most in-demand mastering engineers Ted Jensen (known for works by P.O.D., Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday, TRAPT, Yellowcard, My Chemical Romance, etc). The album has been released on Aug. 6, 2008.

The band is now back on the road again to play in venues nationwide, along with their latest release. Concentrating on starring in venues mainly in and around Tokyo and Osaka, fade has also stopped by to play in sponsored events like MINAMI WHEEL 2008 and SUPER DRY B-JAM.
This year, fade has participated in SWEET LOVE SHOWER SPRING09, and is scheduled to play in festivals such as RUSH BALL 09 and LOUD PARK 09. Band's participation to play in festivals has also become global, as they were invited to play in ETPFEST 2009 held in Korea, where they shared the stage with KEANE, NINE INCH NAILS, and LimpBizkit.

In 2011, fade invites Hajime Okano (sound producer known for works with L'Arc-en-Ciel, etc.) for the first time to work for an album. On 4/27, fade releases new 6th EP Kings of Dawn, and a single One Reason, an opening theme for a Japanese animation series "Deadman Wonderland".

Wow, I didn't know the vocalist is American. That explains why he's fluent in English though.
