Biography

STANCE PUNKS formed in 1998 after TSURU and KINYA met. The band gained fame through their performances at a rooftop live-venue in Shimokitazawa. Their live performance became notorious on August 2001 when one of the audiences collapsed from excitement and ambulances had to be called.

STANCE PUNKS’ name spread overseas when their song “Mayonaka Shounen Totsugekidan” was used as the ending theme song for the movie Battle Royale 2. More recently their song “No Boy No Cry” has been used as the Opening theme song for the anime, Naruto and ‘I Wanna Be’ as the 1st ending of Soul Eater. As of 2005, the band has signed with Sony Epic’s label called “Kowalski Records” under which the single “Mony Mony Mony” was released.

Critics often cite similarities between them and The Blue Hearts, an immensely popular punk band with a very similar style of music.
