Profile

     Lonesome_Blue is truly the next generation of hybrid rock band, mixing a unique blend of experiences, personalities and subcultures, while continuing to prove that Japan is home to some of the most exciting and powerful all female bands in the world.

     Vocalist Maiko Nomura and bassist Yuki Hirose are voice actresses from the Japanese idol video game Tokyo 7th Sisters – they are members of the franchise’s band The QUEEN of PURPLE. They have performed sold out shows at Toyosu PIT and Tokyo Zepp venues, as well as at the legendary Nippon Budokan and massive Makuhari Messe.

     Guitarist Narumi has worked with many well-known metal bands in Japan, and upon launching her solo career, her debut EP became Tower Records Shinjuku’s second best-selling CD in Heavy Rock/Heavy Metal, as well as ranking as the best release of the year from users of Japanese Metal Forum.

     Drummer MIZUKI crashed into Japan’s pop rock scene after auditioning for spot as the drummer for Mami Kawada’s backing band and going on to perform at one of Asia’s biggest festivals solely for anime songs; Animelo Summer LIVE 2012.  She then continued as a session drummer for various artists in the rock and pop world, and is currently one half of Shinku Horou, whose debut single was a theme song to popular anime series Naruto: Shippuden.

     The worlds of anime, rock and power metal are about to collide with the debut EP First Utterance.  This five-track EP is full of flavor, flooded with ferocious riffs, fist swinging beats, and thunderous symphonic moments, all featuring a fun and friendly edge, including production from Mao (Light Bringer) and Steve Jacobs (Mary’s Blood).   The band’s first full-length album Second To None is set for release in December 2022.
