Angela is a two member band formed in Tokyo, Japan, twenty years ago, back in 1993. The members are Atsuko who is the vocalist, lyricist and songwriter and KATSU who is the guitarist, keyboard, songwriter and arranger. They were born in the same town, Okayama, but they did not meet up until they meet while studying in the same music school in Tokyo. It was there and then that they decided to start a band and started performing in small pubs and clubs.
Even though they started in 1993 it wasn’t until 2000 that they released their debut album ‘Tears on my pillow’. In the meantime they did a lot of live performances that usually consists of background music while Atsuko sings and KATSU plays guitar and, of course, all through their career they have had invited members in their performances in other positions.
Besides Angela, one of the members, Atsuko, has also other band called DOMESTIC♥LOVEBAND.
2002 was a good year for them as they were signed by KING RECORDS and it was shortly after that that they released the single ‘Asu e no brilliant road’ that was a great success for the band and assured them following single releases for animes like ‘Uchuu no Stellvia’ and ‘Soukyuu no fafner’. They also made a very big release: Their first album with the label ‘Sora no koe’. This was followed by a concert in the united states and performances in conventions. Such a great year!
Up until now they have released countless singles, a lot of them for animes. And also 7 albums. But today is a special day because their 8th album ‘ZERO’ is released on April 24!
As with many Japanese releases you have here also two options the special edition which consists of a DVD+CD or the normal edition that contains the CD.
The limited edition cost a little bit more 3.600Y and the normal one is 3000. The CD contains 12 amazing song that we are sure everyone is going to enjoy!
