In 2009 the band FACT debuted worldwide on the American label VAGRANT with their unique music containing electronica elements.
They performed at big music festivals overseas including SONISPHERE FESTIVAL, SXSW and the Warped Tour.
They also performed live in the studio for BBC RADIO 1’s popular show “Rock Show.”
They were pioneers of the loud punk scene in the 2000s.
However in 2016, they disbanded suddenly.
The members of FACT Hiro (Voc,) Kazuki (Gtr &Voc) and Takahiro (Gtr &Vo) formed the new band SHADOWS. SHADOWS debuted in March 2016 with the EP, “Extrance,”. They performed at PUNK SPRING in April and SUMMER SONIC 2016 in August.
In August, they released their 2nd EP “Progress” which featured a melodic, hard core sound reminiscent of their 90’s origin as the pioneer of the post 2000s punk scene.
