BAND-MAID Release “Just Bring It” in Europe
Feb 10 all-day

Band Maid 2After blasting in to the international rock scene last year, BAND-MAID return with their hotly anticipated first major album. Entitled Just Bring It, the 13-track album, released under Nippon Crown in their homeland of Japan, will hit the UK and Europe from 10 February 2017 through JPU Records in two editions; the regular edition and a CD and T-shirt bundle.

2016 saw the band embark on their first headline world tour, including a sold-out show at The Underworld in London, over a thousand fans descend on Mexico’s Sala as well as packed out club-events across France, Germany and Poland, along with comic con appearances in London, Spain and Italy. The same year also saw the international release of the band’s HMV recommended mini-album Brand New MAID which led to the Huffington Post Blog dubbing BAND-MAID “one to watch”.

“I flew over to Japan to check out BAND-MAID two years ago, and they haven’t stopped knocking my socks off since. Just Bring It is probably their most powerful record yet. I can’t wait to get them back overseas to hear it live” – Tom Smith, JPU Records’ founder and CEO.
