Their songs have been used as anime opening tunes – like the song “Haruka Kanata” for Naruto.

They played a tour with Weezer in 2008-9 and in 2013 they did their first European tour, visiting France, England and Germany.

Their down-to-earth mix of rock, melody and vocals are versatile and their music has a lot of depth.
