The Akabane Vulgars on Strong Bypass / Bio

Punk Rock Trio from Tokyo, Japan

The Akabane Vulgars On Strong Bypass is punk rock trio, formed in tokyo in 2005. Bassist, Miki Uchizono was the proposer of the band. And she had the idea and the right persons for the lineup. Great power Drummer, Kei Sofue was her classmate, Singer/Guitarist Yumi Uchizono was her sister. Originally the band had played just some covers from Japanese garage rock bands, not making their originals. After 7 months passed, (they kept playing), the band made their minds to start their own works. Singer/Guitarist Yumi guesses that a common blueprint as the core concept of the band came up in their minds in those days. After this point, their theme closed in upon punk with suspecting the system. We are the punks, this keep the band running, even after 9 years passed.

In 2007, the band got active more. They did 4-6 shows a months in nest 5 years. Through those hundreds of shows, the band tried everything they could think of to take every their passion into the works. Also they passed through several recordings in this period. And then they launched 3 albums out (self-released). The band also experienced several band tours with those albums. Their aggressive tours extended to Kansai area from Tokyo. Their earnest attitude for a live performance caused the band to be called the band of a live performance. And some people started to call them that they have rockabilly, psychobilly vibes in their music. Others called them garage rock band. The band made a comment for this, and it says that a thing secure the most is our spirits come from punk. As they say like this, the band have many songs with the lyrics denouncing things oppressive against rights.

The band took the stage at SXSW 2012. The stage led them to retuning whole the US tour. Taking 2 months, their tour van crossed over the country from south california to NYC. The band had a recording during the tour. Next year, in 2013, they got back again to the united states with 2 full-length albums. One was Proclamation showing their punk attitude straight, and the other was their first live-recording album Live in Brooklyn. Having many shows on the road, the band met multitude music writers.
