Shonen Knife

Bringing with them the candy-coated conductivity of unforgettable melodies, the incandescence of inestimable headbanging, the buoyancy of a brilliant display, and the potency of pure punk rock - SHONEN KNIFE are ALIVE! In The USA.

Boasting a nearly 40 year career, these three luminaries of rock & roll have wielded fun and food-centered bops that earned them the love and respect of music goliaths like Nirvana and Sonic Youth. They’ve made their way from their home of Osaka, Japan to the United States many times, but this year they’re putting their personal affection for each and every city on display. Following the release of their tenacious live DVD/CD ALIVE! In Osaka (Released on Robby Takac of THE GOO GOO DOLLS' Good Charamel Records), Shonen Knife have prepared to deliver that same hometown energy from Buffalo on August 28th to Brooklyn on August 31st, Chicago on September 9th, Los Angeles on October 5th, and so much more. Each city will have its own personalized and limited edition artwork available at the show, because for Shonen Knife, home is where the fans are.

Shonen Knife frontwoman Naoko comments, "Our first live album Live in Osaka was released in 2006, and was recorded at the same venue as this new one. After the first live album, we toured, released music constantly, grew as a band and improved. This year we would like to bring the fever from ALIVE! in Osaka on our US tour. Not only will we play songs from the record, but we are also preparing special rarely played songs from earlier albums to the present. Let’s have a fun time together!"

An indie rock band formed in Tokyo, Japan in January 2007. They formed from the dissolution of two other bands, The Radicales and China Chop. The current lineup is Rinko (リンコ) (vocals, rhythm guitar), Yuzuru Takeda (武田ユズル) (guitar), and Takashi Koyama (コヤマタカ志) (drums). Ikuhiro was their bassist until he left the band in 2011.
He was replaced by his brother Kenji who hasn't appeared on any studio recordings to date.
