fadeは、和洋折衷の信念を追求する無類のバンド。他でもない『文化の二重性』=メンバー5人が共有する国際人としての経験と、互いの豊富な洋・邦楽文化知識を引き出しあう能力=がfadeの強みでもある。

Jason Miller(gODHEAD)、Markku Lappaleinen (ex. Hoobastank)、Erik Gregory (リンキンパークのリミックスアルバムReanimationにも参加しているプログラミング・エンジニア)などの錚々たるメンバーと制作作業を行い、ミニアルバム『A Moment Of Truth』と『Under The Sun』収録の楽曲制作作業をロスで行う。『A Moment Of Truth』収録の楽曲「Beautiful」は2006年10月に全国東宝系で上映された岩井俊二プロデュースの映画『虹の女神 Rainbow song』に挿入曲として使用され話題になる。

2007年には初主催イベント「Decade Of Influence Tour」の発足も果たし、ライブ中心の活動に重点を移す。その中『To Find A Better Tomorrow』のレコーディングに取り掛かり、マスタリングに世界有数のエンジニアTed Jensenを迎え完成、2008/8/6にリリース。制作活動を通してよりハードでヘビーに、そしてよりエモーショナルでメロディアスなバンドへと変貌を遂げる。

リリース後、東京・大阪を中心に各地方でライブを行うとともに、FM802主催イベント「MINAMI WHEEL 2008」やMUSIC-ON TV主催イベント「SUPER DRY B-JAM」@Zepp Tokyoに出演。2009年には、FM802&SSTV主催イベント「SWEET LOVE SHOWER SPRING 09」@大阪城公園野外音楽堂に出演し、夏には「RUSH BALL 09」、秋には世界最高峰ラウド系イベント「LOUD PARK 09」にも出演した。その活動範囲は日本だけに留まらず、韓国一のロックフェス「ETPFEST 2009」にも出演、NINE INCH NAILS、Limpbizkitらとの競演を果たす。そして、2009/11/11には初となるFull Album『Age of Innocence』をリリース。

2011年、自身初の外部プロデューサーに岡野ハジメを迎え、ミニアルバム『Kings of Dawn』、アニメ「デッドマン・ワンダーランド」オープニング主題歌『One Reason』を同時リリースする。




fade is a 5-piece band from Japan, the band which continues to be an eclectic and unrivaled melange of east and west, and a front runner in the Japanese contemporary rock scene. This band’s strength and scope is its ability to draw on the cultural duality of music and experience shared between the 5 members.

Working with Jason Miller (gODHEAD), Markku Lappaleinen (ex. Hoobastank), and Erik Gregory (programming engineer, credited in Linkin Park’s remix album Reanimation) led to the release of 2 EPs A Moment of Truth and Under The Sun. And from their 2nd EP A Moment of Truth, track Beautiful was showcased in the nationally acclaimed film "Rainbow Song," produced by Japanese cinema icon Shunji Iwai (Swallow Tale Butterfly, Picnic, etc.) in 2006.

fade is poised to transfer this momentum to the road again in 2007, and begin touring their new material up and down Japan in the first of a series of high velocity events known as the Decade of Influence Tour. In the interim, the band head back into the studio to record their newest album To Find A Better Tomorrow, mixed by one of the most in-demand mastering engineers Ted Jensen (known for works by P.O.D., Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday, TRAPT, Yellowcard, My Chemical Romance, etc). The album has been released on Aug. 6, 2008.

The band is now back on the road again to play in venues nationwide, along with their latest release. Concentrating on starring in venues mainly in and around Tokyo and Osaka, fade has also stopped by to play in sponsored events like MINAMI WHEEL 2008 and SUPER DRY B-JAM.
This year, fade has participated in SWEET LOVE SHOWER SPRING09, and is scheduled to play in festivals such as RUSH BALL 09 and LOUD PARK 09. Band's participation to play in festivals has also become global, as they were invited to play in ETPFEST 2009 held in Korea, where they shared the stage with KEANE, NINE INCH NAILS, and LimpBizkit.

In 2011, fade invites Hajime Okano (sound producer known for works with L'Arc-en-Ciel, etc.) for the first time to work for an album. On 4/27, fade releases new 6th EP Kings of Dawn, and a single One Reason, an opening theme for a Japanese animation series "Deadman Wonderland".
