BAND-MAID also revealed that the music video for the title track Let go!!!!! will portray the group in animated media, delighting both music and anime fans. The promotional artwork features the five members in the style of anime heroines exploding from a five-barreled pistol, alluding to the quintuple exclamation marks in the song title.

Since its inception in 2013 by vocalist and rhythm guitarist Miku Kobato, BAND-MAID has steadily amassed a voracious following across the globe. The virtuoso repertoire intertwines bass guitars with machine gun kicks and contrasts with the ornate Victorian maid stage attire now dubbed the performers’ “combat armour.”

Kobato is joined by Saiki on vocals, Kanami on guitar, MISA on bass and Akane on drums. They have released four major label albums together, the latest unseen world released in January 2021 – and have contributed opening theme music to many anime series, including end of platinum and Log Horizon.

their national tour Pre US Okyuji in Japan begins on August 17. Following an appearance at replica music festival in Sacramento on October 9, a 13-stop 2022 US Tour will bring BAND-MAID from coast to coast to nearly 20,000 participants. Tickets for all but three headlining dates sold out within days, prompting the addition of two more shows in New Jersey and Chicago.
