Since then, the band has been actively producing heart-touching Japanese lyrics, one & only melody lines with expressive band sound to spread messages to fans to live straight forwardly in this day and age at performances all over Japan from their home ground of Shibuya. Their live performance fascinates fans in variety of demographics in above ground, underground, band scenes and club scenes. Their engaging and aggressive live shows that they shout and jump together with the fans receive positive reviews from wide audiences.
