Biography

Moran is a rock band from Tokyo, Japan that was founded in December 2007 and started activities in March 2008.

The band’s current lineup consists of Hitomi (aka Sanaka/Kanoma, ex-Fatima) on vocals, SIZNA (ex-Sugar) on guitar, vivi (ex-DragonWAPPPPPPER) on guitar, Ivy (aka Tomoa, ex-レミング, Dio - Distraught Overlord) on bass, and Soan (aka Towa, ex-Fatima) on drums. Originally the band had Zill on bass (aka Saburo, ex-Kurt) and Velo (aka Takumi) on guitar.

On November 2009, guitarist, Velo, officially decided to leave after Moran’s last oneman tour before their hiatus, 「Freeze」. In 2010, with the 3 remaining members, Moran played a few shows as a session band under the name Freeze. In the middle of the year, they had planned to make a comeback from their hiatus with a new guitarist, SIZNA, and started writing new material. However, bassist Zill suddenly passed away on July 23. On August 20, SIZNA’s birthday, Moran officially announced that SIZNA has joined as a new permanent member. Moran officially “unfreezes” from their hiatus on December 24, 2010, marked with their oneman live, titled,「Awake」. On March 23, 2011, the band will release a mini-album of new and previously unreleased songs composed by Zill, titled, 「Apples」. On June 9, 2012, Moran announced new official members, vivi (guitar) and Ivy (bass).
