Lead singer Yojiro Noda says: “I don’t even know how to express my excitement. It’s been three years and we’re all three years older. But our music has matured, too. I will come see you as if you’re a lover I was longing to reunite with, so be ready! Can’t wait to see you all in person.” Bass player Yusuke Takeda adds: “It’s been a while since we played a concert where the audience could scream and shout, so I want to have as much fun as we possibly can.”
RADWIMPS have also recently teamed up with highly acclaimed film music composer Kazuma Jinnouchi to create the perfect soundtrack and score for award-winning auteur director Makoto Shinkai’s latest film “Suzume” now showing in theatres across Asia.
“Suzume” is the story about a young girl traveling through various ruins across Japan while closing doors causing disaster. “Suzume” opened in Japan on Nov. 11, 2022. It was #1 for 3 consecutive weeks with a gross of over 14.22 billion Yen at the box office to date! The international rollout started on March 2nd in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau and Suzume has opened to number one in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea and Vietnam so far with over 2 million people have seen the film. The film just opened in one of the biggest markets in the world -China- on March 24th and it sold 70 million yuan (US$10.17 million) in pre-sale tickets ahead of its release, making it the highest number of pre-sales for an animated film in China ever. The soundtrack by RADWIMPS and Kazuma Jinnouchi also recently received “Best Music” at 46th Japan Academy Award.
Formed in 2001, Japanese 4-piece band RADWIMPS made their major label debut in 2005. Soon after, they garnered a broad fan base, with the younger generation at the core. The band has released nine studio albums thus far. The band’s creation of music for Shinkai’s previous record-breaking animated feature films “Your Name.” and “Weathering with You” led to recognitions at the Japanese Academy Award for Best Original Score. Their musical activities go far beyond Japan, including touring extensively around the world.
In Nov. 2021, the band released their latest studio album “FOREVER DAZE” and went on the road for a nationwide Japanese tour to support the album. “FOREVER DAZE” was written and recorded throughout the pandemic and speaks to the musical challenges the guys faced, their hopes moving forward and features a diverse group of collaborators and experimental elements. The album welcomed guest artists including the famous actor/singer Masaki Suda, as well as two of the most up-and-coming artists, Awich and iri.
