18 Dec ALL OFF
Originally formed in 2004 by singer so-hey and guitarist Yukio, when they were in the same high school in Tokyo, ALL OFF started as a hobby and without knowing how to play, sing or write music. The band had a big break when they were asked to appear on a reality TV show on MTV Japan in early 2005. After the appearance on MTV Japan, ALL OFF played many more live shows in Tokyo, gained more renown in the music scene, and issued their very first demo in 2007.
In 2015, ALL OFF signed with major record label Warner Brothers Japan, and provided the opening and ending theme songs for Japanese anime Heavy Object and Mob Psycho 100. The video of the song Refrain Boy, the ending for Mob Psycho 100, saw over 3 million plays on YouTube in a year, and songs for Heavy Object saw millions of plays too. Through the popularity of these songs, ALL OFF created a worldwide fan base and played the United States for the first time.
