About the Popular Rock Band “androp”

The band consists of 4 members, Uchisawa Takahito (Vocals & Guitar), Satou Takuya (Guitar & Keyboard), Maeda Kyosuke (Bass), and Ito Akihiko (Drums). In December of 2009 they released their first album titled “anew”. They have since made appearances with their songs in many dramas, commercials, and more, even receiving awards at prestigious festivals such as France’s Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, gaining popularity not only in Japan, but all over the world with their trinity-style stage that includes images, sound, and lighting.

Some Thoughts about Overseas Performances

After releasing a Taiwanese version of one of our songs, we have found out that response from overseas is very positive. In the current situation of COVID-19 spreading with no end in sight, we wanted to create a new way of interacting with our fans, and have decided that the virtual space is the best place for it.
