ROA Release New Music Video Shot At Japan Expo, France


24 May ROA Release New Music Video Shot At Japan Expo, France

Shamisen rockers ROA unleash the first music video from their exclusive overseas album RODIAC today, the day before the album’s official release. JROCKNEWS premiered the video earlier today and featured it with a lengthy, exclusive interview with the band which can be read by clicking here.

ROA’s unique sound juxtaposes western punk-rock spirit with traditional eastern melody, a concept they’ve dubbed “和洋折衷/ Wayo Settyu” –literally meaning “the blending of Japanese and western styles”. Formed by the drummer of Japan’s legendary chart-topping ska-punk outfit SNAIL RAMP, ROA manage to propel their country’s three-stringed traditional instrument, the Tsugaru-shamisen, into the 21st century by implementing its iconic sound in new and exciting ways.
