Nephew, Under Byen and Jomi Massage to be Released in Japan – Tours Will Follow

Nephew, Under Byen and Jomi Massage to be Released in Japan – Tours Will Follow

Nephew – tour in Japan next spring,

In the very near future, the albums of three Danish acts will be released in Japan – two of them, Jomi Massage’s “Aloud” and Nephew’s “USADSB” are being released these very days, actually, while Under Byen’s “Det er mig, der holder træerne sammen” is expected to be in the Japanese shops in February. Subsequently all three bands are expected to go on tour in The Land of the Rising Sun.
The Jomi Massage release has come about with the label Loveless Records, which is a newly started label on the Japanese market, but one which seems to have to have some good liaisons: they have already clinched a listening post in the great Tower Records store in Tokyo for Jomi Massage ahead of various big names. A tour is expected in March or April – either just before or immediately after Jomi Massage’s appearance at the French women’s festival “Les Femmes S’en Melent” which takes Signe Høirup Wille-Jørgensen & co to five French cities in, while “Aloud” is to be released in France on Telescopic in March.

Nephew’s Danish hit record “USADSB” is released in Japan by the record company Ultra Vybe. The reason that the company discovered Nephew was simply that a Japanese resident in Copenhagen sent “USADSB” to an Ultra Vybe representative, who immediately fell in love with the music! “En Wannabe Darth Vader” is to be released as the first single, and the band has already been interviewed for a two-page portrait in the next issue of “Rockin’ On” – one of Japan’s biggest music magazines. A Japanese Nephew tour is on the cards early next year.
Finally, the same record company is going to release Under Byen’s ”Der er mig der holder træerne sammen” in February. Henriette Sennenvaldt and the rest of the band will probably travel to Japan in the spring.
