Starting back in 1999 The Cherry Cokes$ have attracted an audience in Japan with their unique sound; a drunken Irish punk incorporating banjo, mandolin and tin whistle. Their first album, "Beer my Friends", brought them to national attention in the indies scene with airplay of their music video on MTV and SpaceShower TV. Now you can find them touring with some of the biggest names in punk when they come to Japan. They have toured with Flogging Molly and The Casualties and have played the Tokyo gigs of such legends as Greenland Whalefishers and the Dropkick Murphys.
Currently they're signed to Bullion records, the Japanese label of Flogging Molly, The Casualties, Suicide Machines and many others. Their new album, ROUSE UP, was released in October, 2005.
HIROMITSU and KOYA OGATA left the band in May 2014, leaving them as a 5 piece band.
