Japanese rock group that covered ‘Narda’ all set for Philippine tour

Remember Uchusentai Noiz, the Japanese rock group that covered Kamikazee’s hit song “Narda”?

They will kick off their Philippine tour this weekend in Davao City, but it won’t be their first time to perform for Filipino fans.

According to Japan Foundation, Manila, Uchusentai Noiz were, in fact, a featured act at the “Mindanao Cosplay Summit 2011” held last year, also in Davao City.

Formed in 1999, Uchusentai Noiz is a five-member band composed of Angel Taka on vocals, Kotaro on guitar, Kyo on bass, Masato and guitar/vocals and Yamato on drums.

These guys claim to hail from “outer-space and are here on earth for a mission to protect peace” through live performances and tours.

As we previously reported, the band is identified with the “visual kei” genre, a type of fashion characterized by heavy make-up as well as flashy hairstyles and costumes. Their video for “Narda” has over 400,000 views to date.

With seven albums to their credit, Uchusentai Noiz have toured across Japan, the USA and, yes, the Philippines. They will perform at Station 91 on September 7, 6:30PM and SM City Davao parking lot on September 8 and 9, 6PM.

They are also slated to grace the “Best of Anime 2012” event on September 15 and 16, 6PM at Function Rooms 4 & 5, 3rd Level of the SMX Convention Center of the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.

The Japan Foundation, Manila is bringing Uchusentai Noiz to the country in cooperation with Creative Connections & Commons, Inc., MKD Nihongo Radio Station and Primetrade Asia, Inc., with the support of All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd., Smart Communications, Inc. and the Embassy of Japan.
