PostSubject: An Cafe - band   Mon Apr 28, 2008 11:57 pm

An Cafe (or Antic Cafe) (アンティック-珈琲店-(カフェ), Antikku Kafe) is a Japanese pop/rock band formed in 2003 and signed to the independent label Loop Ash. They have been described as a visual kei band. As of 2008, the group has released two full-length albums with another slated for an April release.

History

An Cafe was formed in May 2003 with Miku, Kanon and Bou who would later be joined by Teruki after leaving his former band, Feathers-Blue. The band played live shows for their first year, without any releases.

In 2004, An Cafe released their first demos and signed a record deal with Loop Ash. Their first release, "Candyholic" was released in March and reached the second spot on the Oricon indies single chart. The band continued touring and releasing, including their first album, Shikisai Moment in 2005. The band released even more singles in 2006 until their second studio album, Magnya Carta (a play on "Magna Carta").

In 2007, the band announced their first overseas appearance at Project A-Kon. The announcement of this was followed shortly by the departure of guitarist, Bou. The last performance with Bou was on April 30, 2007, and was featured in a DVD titled Hibiya On *The* o New Sekai. After Bou left the band, two new members were announced; Takuya to replace Bou as the guitarist, and Yuuki to join An Cafe as a keyboardist. The first single with their new lineup was announced as "Kakusei Heroism" followed by "Ryuusei Rocket". In the end of 2007, An Cafe announced their first overseas tour, taking place in Europe in 2008.

In the opening weeks of 2008, An Cafe announced their upcoming single, "Cherry Saku Yuki!!" in February, as well as their next studio album, Gokutama Rock Cafe, to be released on April 9, 2008.

* Miku vocals
* Takuya guitar (since 2007)
* Kanon bass
* Teruki drums
* Yuuki keyboard (since 2007)

Former members

Endorsements

International recognition

An Cafe has gained moderate success in not only Japan, but Europe, mainland Asia (Korea, China) and the United States.

An Cafe is one of my favorite band. My favorite member is Miku. I always thought that Miku is cute, but when i saw him live he was so sexy. I like Takuya too, he is so cute, i don't know is he gay or not, but if he is that is okay with me. All of them are talented and they have great music. I like their songs because they sound nyappy. I also think Yuuki is somehow strange, i don't like his style, and i miss Bou a lot!!

Yeah, An Cafe are the first band I heard, and I love Miku a lot... They have great music, and it is always happy ^^ I miss Bou, too, and now, everything seems different without him... He was the feminine part of the band, and now, they seem like forcing Miku to be more feminine, because they miss Bou.... I like their songs, and they are really talented band....
