Formed in 1981; LOUDNESS released their first album The Birthday Eve and it created a huge stir on the Japanese Metal scene. In 1983 LOUDNESS hit the west and toured the U.S. their stunning energetic live show caught the attention of Atlantic Records and became the first Japanese metal band to sign a multiple album deal with a major label.
Now some 33 years, numerous line-up changes and 28 studio albums later LOUDNESS are still at the top of their game and still charting every album in their homeland. In 2018 LOUNDESS released their latest album ‘Rise To Glory. The good news is that all original members Akira (Guitar), Masayoshi (Bass), Minoru (vocals) along with Masayuki (Drums) are heading to Australia for the very first time in May for a three date East Coast Tour. They may be almost 40 years into their distinguished career but make no mistake, LOUDNESS still remains one of the hottest live acts out in the world.
