テゴマス (Tegomasu, romanized as Tegomass) are a two-person unit consisting of 手越祐也 (Tegoshi Yuuya) and 増田貴久 (Masuda Takahisa) who are both from the Johnny's Entertainment group NEWS. They were formed in 2006 for the promotion of the Japanese talent company Johnny & Associates in the Western world.
They released one single in Sweden on November 15th, 2006. The English-language single titled Miso Soup, had its music video played all over Sweden and reached #12 on the Swedish music charts. A Japanese language version of the single was released a little over a month later in Japan and debuted at #1 on the Oricon charts.
テゴマス were assumed by most fans to be a temporary unit until it was announced that they would be the official 2007 Spring High School Volleyball Championships cheer unit (this is the largest high school volleyball event in Japan and is a widely watched program). They performed at games and helped promote the event.
