Acclaimed Japanese rock band Radwimps are thrilled to finally be headed back to play in North America this Spring.
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, which hits North America theaters in April 14, distributed by Crunchyroll. The physical release of the soundtrack will coincide with the movie launch stateside and Radwimps U.S. tour. Suzume is the story about a young girl traveling through various ruins across Japan while closing doors causing disaster.
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 recognition at the Japanese Academy Award for Best Original Score. Their musical activities go far beyond Japan, including touring extensively around the world.
In November 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 it 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.
Radwimps, alongside YouTube Japan, have teamed up to release twenty newly remastered version of past music videos. These are available now. You can enjoy all of the the band’s classics in new high quality video.
