Visual-kei Band Fukuro will come to the US West Coast in first Overseas Tour

Visual-kei band Fukuro will bring their beautifully serene, jazzy, and energetic sounds to the US West Coast in July of 2024. They’re celebrating their overseas debut with a convention appearance at Anime Expo 2024 in Los Angeles as well as three concerts in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego.

Fukuro [梟], which translates into “owl”, is the brainchild of Yoshiatsu, known as the vocalist and lyricist of the disbanded Visual-kei band DADAROMA. He founded Fukuro in 2021 together with Daisuke (piano), Yutara (bass), and Lotto (drums). Their first full album, Minority Minority, was released on October 2023, featuring songs from previously released music videos such as BitterChoco and Gekkou.

Together with Japan Music Revolution (JMR), a music promotion company based in Tokyo whose owner originally hails from Los Angeles, Fukuro are holding their first overseas concerts in the summer of 2024 in California.

To achieve this goal, they started a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo called Fukuro: The Road To America. The campaign contained a variety of perks such as a behind-the-scenes DVD or a signed photo of the band in Los Angeles—and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore Los Angeles with Fukuro! There was also a possibility to donate money without any perks. Sadly, the campaign didn’t reach its goal. But as the band stated before, they’ll come to the US anyway. The crowdfunding was held to lower traveling costs, and also to keep ticket and merchandise prices as low as possible.

We are glad that Fukuro will embark on their first tour outside of Japan soon and are wishing band and fans a fantastic time. Check out Fukuro’s official website for more ticket information!
