RMMS-BAND-MAID-the-non-fiction-days-MV-1B

BAND-MAID fights fire with metal in their new music video “the non-fiction days”, taken from the upcoming album Brand New MAID. The video was recorded during a marathon morning-to-night session in which band members braved cold ocean winds on a Tokyo beach, bundling up for comfort in between takes. The nighttime shots added self-made fires for light and much-needed heat as the band members played their instruments for hours between shooting flames, adding intensity to their performances.

BAND-MAID made their USA debut last month at Sakura-Con in Seattle, Washington, for an audience of over 2500 music fans. Brand New MAID is scheduled for release on May 18 in Japan and on digital music services worldwide.

Reviews for BAND-MAID’s New Beginning:

“Reminiscent of Wolfmother’s debut CD, this is a band that’s found its sweet spot and is super-clear about what they’re about.”
– JRock247

“New Beginning is a fantastic mini-album that deserves wide acclaim. A solid rhythm section, effortless guitar riffing/soloing, and confident vocals. This is a band that knows how to play!”
– Femme Metal Webzine

“Full of addictive numbers with a powerful chemistry of twin vocals, killer guitar riffs, low-end bass line and a precise pounding beat of the drums. Each sound by the five band members has a strong personality, but their collision unleashes huge amounts of energy in each song.”
– JaME
