FACT, a five-piece rock band from Japan, will release their self-titled US debut on April 14 through Vagrant/Maximum 10. The 16-track setwas recorded with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Incubus, Story of the Year) and was mixed by Chris Lord Alge (Green Day, MyChemical Romance).

“The band started out being a metallic hardcore band, but then started developing from there,” explains guitarist Kazuki. “We kept addingnew sounds to it; bringing in elements of dance music, electronica, synths, and a lot of poppy, catchy tracks, and having all that cometogether. We’re trying to do something a little bit different than your typical band..

In 2006 FACT released their first full-length in Japan, Never Turn Out The Light To Keep Myself, on the punk label Bullion. FACT has lenttheir music to several compilations that were released worldwide, including Immortal Records’ A Santa Cause compilation and the AC/DCtribute album Thunder Tracks.

FACT will be touring the states beginning in Plano, Texas on March 14 (see dates below) with Iwrestledabearonce, Greeley Estates, andMemphis May Fair, but don’t expect to recognize them. In photos, the band always appears masked.

“One aspect of the masks is to try to have people listen to the music rather than looking at us and seeing we’re just another Japanese band,”Kazuki explains. “Another aspect is it’s a traditional Japanese mask, so people will know we’re a Japanese band, but still won’t know whatwe’re all about, so they have to listen to the music to find out what it is. It’s a way to accept we’re Japanese, but also that we’re here for themusic, not looks, or things like that..

FACT is: Takahiro (guitar, vocals), Tomohiro (bass, vocals), Eiji (drums, vocals), Hiro (lead vocals), Kazuki (guitar, vocals) and Adam (guitar, vocals) « hide
