BAND-MAID is one of Japan’s hottest up-and-coming all-girl rock acts. Its five members have been turning heads across the globe with their cute, authentic maid aesthetics combined with powerful, skilled musicianship.
BAND-MAID's music videos "Thrill" and "REAL EXISTENCE" went viral soon after release and have achieved over four million views on YouTube, gaining recognition from western media such as Guitar World, Team Rock and many more. Brand New MAID is the band’s first CD release internationally and includes songs “the non-fiction days” and “alone”, the videos to which have been viewed almost a million times since being released on YouTube last month.
Formed in 2013, the band’s concept is based on founder Miku’s experiences in Akihabara’s maid cafes, an area of Tokyo famous for otaku (“geek”) culture, combined with her passion for rock music.
Brand New MAID includes a bonus track only available on CD as well as an additional exclusive translation booklet of all the lyrics.
