News was formed in 2003, but at the beginning they were 9 members. A few members have left one by one through the years. Since 2011, they are only 4 members left, but sincerely, they are still good and talented. Their songs are colorful and joyful. They always use some sound coming from abroad, such as Latino or Egyptian and others. It makes you feel like summer even during the winter. Sadly, you cannot find a lot of things about them if you don’t live in Japan. We think it’s a shame to miss such an amazing J-pop band. They are good and could have so much success in Europe or all over the world. But at Japako Music, we will try our best to promote them and show their music to the world. Even though it seems complicated. We hope you guys will enjoy the two music videos we could find from them. Don’t hesitate to check them out! They really worth listening to.
As for the members, we have Keiichiro Koyama, Takahisa Masuda, Shigeaki Kato and Yuya Tegoshi. They are 4 great singers, they can dance pretty good as well and they are really cute. They have a lot of charisma and we really like their fashion. They released 4 studio albums. The first one was released in 2005, called „Touch“. Followed by „Pacific“ in 2007, „Color“ in 2008 and „LIVE“ in 2010. In June 2012, they decided to release a compilation with the best of News.
They have a a lot of success in Japan, all their singles are always making a good ranking in the charts. They could even do a concert at the Tokyo Dome in 2008. Now, we are definitely waiting for the real come back of the 4 left members of News, we hope a new album will be out soon. They already did a come back with the song „World Quest“ which is very good. Until then, let’s support them and keep an eye on those talented guys!
