Hailing from the punk rock capital of the world, Tokyo, Japan, comes "Megababe": three cute chicks who crank out contemporary punk rock with an old-school sensibility, and aren''t afraid to throw some metal and hardcore into the mix whenever they feel like it.
The girls got their start in mid 2001, when drummer Miho met bassist AkO and began gigging around Tokyo under the Megababe name. They soon jumped into studio to make their first EP, "Bite Me", which showed their sound evolving from a crunchy-guitar, head-banging rock n'' roll style to a more modern sound with strong melodies and catchy choruses.
Miho and AkO found a permament guitarist/lead vocalist to complete the lineup -- "Miyu" joined the band as it''s new frontwoman in early 2003. It was clear that this Megababe lineup finally packed the right punch, giving their live shows even more raw energy than their frenetic studio recordings.
Now in October of 2004 comes the girls'' first full-length CD, "Speak Japanese or Die!" - a high energy blend of old-school punk and contemporary metal, delivered from a unique Japanese girl''s perspective. With the release of this CD, Megababe plans to take their live show around Japan before touring to the US. Check out the CD, and see the shows!
