Having shared the stage with the likes of NINE INCH NAILS, Limp Bizkit, and Keane, fade is a 5-piece modern band from Japan which continues to be an eclectic and unrivaled melange of east and west, and a front runner in the Japanese contemporary rock scene. This band's strength and scope is its ability to draw on the cultural duality of music and experience shared between its 5 members.
Working with Jason Miller (gODHEAD), Markku Lappaleinen (ex. Hoobastank), and Erik Gregory (programming engineer, credited in Linkin Park's remix album Reanimation) led to the release of 2 EPs. And from their 2nd EP A Moment of Truth, track Beautiful was showcased in the nationally acclaimed film "Rainbow Song," produced by Japanese cinema icon Shunji Iwaii (Swallow tale Butterfly, Picnic, etc.) in 2006.
