[ About THE MOLICE ]
※日本語は英語の下にあります。

<Short Bio>
The Molice hammered out their own sound while playing in Tokyo’s numerous rock venues and on tour in North America, Europe and Asia. This East/West hybrid sound has a wide appeal by being both catchy and edgy, incorporating rock n’ roll, classical, dance, shoegaze, alternative, and post-hardcore elements. Lead singer Rinko sings primarily in Japanese, but in a melodic rock style, in contrast to the more popular idol singing style in Japan. Her lyrics are often romantic, but sometimes venture into sci-fi, inspired by movies such as Blade Runner and Fahrenheit 451.

<Longer Bio>
The Molice are an alternative/post-hardcore/dance-core trio from Tokyo, formed in 2007 by the charismatic female singer/lyricist/guitarist Rinko and high tension guitarist Yuzuru Takeda. Drummer Hirofumi “Paro” Katsumoto joined in 2015 after a lineup change.

Drawing inspiration from 70’s punk DIY spirit, 80’s new wave stylish power pop, and 90’s unchained indies guitar rock, the band has hammered out their own sound while playing in Tokyo’s numerous rock venues and on tour in North America, Europe and Asia. This East/West hybrid sound has a wide appeal by being both catchy and edgy, incorporating rock n’ roll, classical, dance, shoegaze, alternative, and post-hardcore elements. Rinko sings primarily in Japanese, but in a melodic rock style, in contrast to the more popular idol singing style in Japan. Her lyrics are often romantic, but sometimes venture into sci-fi, inspired by movies such as Blade Runner and Fahrenheit 451.

Since their beginning, the band has had a high percentage of foreigners amongst their fans. As a result, the Molice has received TV and radio coverage in a diverse range of countries such as Vietnam, the USA, France, the UK, Australia, Japan, and Portugal. The Molice’s second album “Catalystrock” also caught the attention of Good Charamel Records (owned by Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls), who released the album in North America.

The Molice, now based in Buffalo, NY, are currently touring the US. Their eighth album ‘Gate’ is set for release on October 12th.
