RADWIMPS has collaborated with renowned Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami to create the stunning tour art. Tanaami, known for his vibrant and wild works exhibited in galleries worldwide, was approached by frontman Yojiro, who is a fan of his art. The result is a mind-blowing visual representation that perfectly encapsulates the band’s energy.
Formed in 2001, Japanese 4-piece band RADWIMPS made their major label debut in 2005. Soon after, they garnered a broad fan base, with the younger generation at the core. The band has released nine studio albums thus far. The band’s creation of music for Shinkai’s previous record-breaking animated feature films “Your Name.” and “Weathering with You” led to recognitions at the Japanese Academy Award for Best Original Score. Their musical activities go far beyond Japan, including touring extensively around the world.
In November 2021, the band released their latest studio album ‘FOREVER DAZE’ and went on the road for a nationwide Japanese tour to support the album. ‘FOREVER DAZE’ was written and recorded throughout the pandemic and speaks to the musical challenges the guys faced, their hopes moving forward and features a diverse group of collaborators and experimental elements.
In 2022, RADWIMPS teamed up with highly acclaimed film music composer Kazuma Jinnouchi to create the perfect soundtrack and score for award-winning director Makoto Shinkai’s latest film, ‘Suzume’, which grossed more than $300 million at the global box office and has been nominated for a Golden Globe.
‘Suzume’ tells the story of a young girl travelling through various ruins across Japan, while closing doors that cause disaster. The film, which opened in Japan on 11 November 2022, became a box office sensation, grossing over 14.22 billion Yen to date and holding the #1 spot for three consecutive weeks. Its international rollout has been equally successful, with openings in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, and other countries topping the charts.
In addition to their remarkable success on tours and in the music industry, the band resonates strongly with their Southeast Asian audience, with their Top 10 Streaming Markets including #2 Indonesia, #3 Philippines, #7 Malaysia and #9 Thailand.
