UVERworld (ウーバーワールド, Ūbāwārudo?) is a Japanese rock band known for their mixture of musical genres such as hard rock, electronic, and beat-boxing. UVERchan, the band’s mascot, is a fictional bear-bat like character, which appears on several of their covers.

The five-member band known as UVERworld first formed in 2003, and were known as Sound Goku Road or, more popularly, “Sangoku Road.” The band originally consisted of seven members, and released a demo CD which ended up selling 3,000 copies. Unfortunately, one of the band members, the saxophonist Seika, left the group (the other was Hiko, who left after he married). After his departure, Ace∞trigger renamed himself TAKUYA∞ and the band renamed itself to UVERworld.

According to an interview with the band there was another vocalist who left, however this vocalist hasn’t yet been identified. Though it appears that that person may have left some time before Seika did, as Seika is the only one of the two credited on the demo CD and pictured with very early live photos of the band pre-UVERworld.

2005 was the year that the band signed with the label gr8! records, which is under Sony Music Records. The band made their debut with the single “D-tecnoLife”, which served as the 2nd opening theme song for the anime BLEACH. After three months UVERworld’s second single, “CHANCE!” was used as the theme for the PSP game Bleach: Heat the Soul 2 and was the last single released in 2005.

On January 25, 2006 “just Melody”, the band’s third single, ended up at #17 on the Oricon charts.
