LOKA is an Alternative Hard Rock band based out of Tokyo/Japan. But their music do not sound « Japanese », if you listen to their music you’ll find the music back bone to be more American Hard Rock. Also combined with raging synthesizer and digital drum beats, their music does not stop only at live houses but spread to the club music scene. LOKA first makes their appearance on June 9th 2012. At that time, only the singer Kihiro and drummer KEN’ICHI were the official members, and bass, guitar players were formed by support members. On August 8th, LOKA releases their first EP « 01 »-zero one- and kicks off a nation tour from September. While on the road they also release their first Album on November 7th, « EnFLAME » and continues their nation touring to the end of the year (approx. 40 shows), both immediately selling 1000 copies and still growing. In 2013 April, they welcome Katsumi as an official bass player for LOKA.
LOKA is set to kick off another nation summer tour including and international tour to play a summer festival in Taiwan, FORMOZ FESTIVAL. Though it’s only been a year since the band has formed, their musicianship, profession, and performance is considered top class in the country. Reading the members past profile will make you understand that they’ve been around the worlds music industry for a while.
Originally the singer for the band Supe. In 2003 the band relocated to Long Beach, California to perfect their international sound and expand the reach of their energetic live shows. With the 2006 self-release of their successful six-song EP Grow in the Cold, produced by Sylvia Massy-Shivy (Tool, System of a Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Supe launched their first US tour with 50+ dates from coast to coast. Then in 2007 the EP was picked by Buddy Records in their native Japan and a subsequent homecoming release tour followed to eager fans. This landed the band on the covers of various “in-country” rock magazines and a feature on MTV-Japan. Back in the US Supe launched a follow-up tour and released their single Shade to radio. The independent EP sold in impressive 30,000+ units.Supe then took to the road hitting over 65 cities in the U.S. and Japan for their Summer Rocks 2008 Tour including several stops on the VANS WARPED TOUR. In 2009 Supe toured Japan with (hed) p.e. and then quickly jetted to Taiwan and China to join mega-rock band Story of the Year for a series of dates before returning home to the US to record a follow up CD and launch the much anticipated Hed to Head Tour criss-crossing the US (40 shows)for the summer with (hed) p.e and Mushroomhead.
