WE ARE X, the award-winning rock-n-roll documentary about one of the most successful bands in history, profiles the blockbuster Japanese rock band X Japan and its enigmatic frontman Yoshiki – composer, classically trained pianist, drummer and the creative force behind the band’s wild success.
Featuring interviews with Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Stan Lee and more, WE ARE X dives into Yoshiki’s life and X Japan’s attempt to break into the American music industry. Supported by concert footage, band interviews and fan photos, the compelling film takes a look at X Japan’s hardships and conflicts including suicide and cultism.
Also spotlighting the band’s triumphs, WE ARE X explores the group’s phenomenal success, boasting more than 30 million albums and singles sold, countless sold-out concerts around the world, and fans in North America, Europe, Latin America and Southeast Asia.
