Don't miss LIVE, which the band moves around on the stage with the music that combines fierceness and quietness, melodiousness and ferocity!
The band is having their music activities under the theme of Okinawa.
"It looks like a huge mushroom cloud pierced me
Bad excuse It would be very easy for the atomic bomb explosion to keep the gun still bent.
I'm sure it's better to keep silent. Our feet are shaking. In such a small island, we all bleed the same red blood."
A band plays only weird songs.
"Just loosen your neck a little, a drop of painful words came out in the autumn rain.
Am I being watched by someone? The second line hasn't come down yet, so broaden the base to read.
While adding a blue shadow, I'm in pain so that I sweat when I walk. White is hidden in a prison.
I wonder what the character looks like when I turn upside down. Cheers to heaven will never run dry."
From Adam "Inclusion and Exclusion"
The band was formed in March 2020.
Their music expresses the sadness and smell of a middle-aged man.
Four men who have struggled and struggled in life boldly take on the challenge regardless of genre.
