Sakanaction, formed in 2005 in Sapporo (north area of Japan), is a rock band having its very own style by mixing various factor of music from typical rock band sounds to club music, all the while maintaining nostalgic folky melodies and deep, resonating lyrics.
They are one of the top live bands in the Japanese music scene, performing as the headliner at many music festivals which a lot of Japanese and foreign artists show up. The band’s live performance is drawing extremely high attention from the music scene, and tickets to their shows are constantly sold out. They always introduce the latest technology at the time, and the experience of their live act gives us the feeling as if watching a movie with high completeness.
The band has composed a theme song and screen music of Bakuman, a film based on a Japanese famous manga series, which was released in October 2015. In March 2016, the band also produced a song for a short film of miumiu Women's Tales #11 "SEED", directed by Naomi Kawase.
They are now on SAKANAQUARIUM2015-2016 "NF Records launch tour", attracting more than 150,000 audiences in total. Sakanaction is one of Japan’s most accomplished bands.
