Are you guys excited for I LOVE ANISONG 2019?! C3AFA Singapore is bringing the hot rocking group BLUE ENCOUNT to the region’s biggest anisong event for the very first time!
BLUE ENCOUNT is a four-piece band hailing from Kumamoto. With their passionate and exciting style, they manage to become one with their audience. The ability to strike directly at the feelings of the audience has given this emotional rock band a great deal of attention.
They made their major debut with the EP “TIMELESS ROOKIE” in September 2014, and followed up with the release of their first single “Motto Hikari wo” in January 2015. Despite their status as new artistes, the tracks received extended plays in 35 radio stations all over the country. In May of the same year, they released “DAYxDAY”, which was used as the opening theme song for the third season of the TV Anime “Gintama”.
In July of the same year, they released their first album “≒” (Nearly Equal), and followed that in January 2016 with “Hajimari”, which was used as the official cheer song for the 94th National High School Soccer tournament. They released “Survivor”, which was used as the opening theme song for the “Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans”. They wrapped up 2016 with a solo concert, “LIVER’S BUDOKAN”, at the Nippon Budokan on October 2016.
In 2017 they embarked on their largest tour in the band’s history, culminating with a performance at Makuhari Messe, “TOUR2017 break THE END”, supporting their second album “THE END” which they released in January. In November, they provided their second song for Gintama, releasing “VS”. which became the live anthem for their subsequent concerts.
In 2018, marking an evolution to their sound, their long-awaited 3rd album, “VECTOR” was released in March, reaching number 6 on the weekly Oricon charts. In November, they released “FREEDOM”, which was the second opening to the TV anime “BANANA FISH”, showing their solid appeal to fans again.
In 2019, they welcomed their 5th year since their major debut and their 15th as a band. They released “SICK(S)”, a mini-album and embarked on their first hall tour, which was a resounding success. They will embark on a live house tour in September. Check out this exciting band as they perform for the first time in Singapore at I LOVE ANISONG!
