Ketchup Mania Returns!

Ketchup Mania

It's summer, and what better way to get yourself in the mood than with a healthy dose of girly Japanese punk rock! This week, Ketchup Mania returned with their latest album "FLAG"!

Formed in the mid 2000's around Nagoya's underground rock scene, this fearsome four-piece blazed their own path through Japan's independant scene before releasing their first major label single "Jingle Berry" on Universal Music in 2005. Their secret to success: adopting a fun, lively rock band sound, cute lyrics, and performing fantastic live shows along contemporaries like Yum!Yum!Orange. This year sees Ketchup Mania travel to America for a new, North American tour featuring stops at Houston's SXSW festival, Seattle's Sakura-Con, and venus in New York, San Francsico and more.

Order Ketchup Mania's new album "FLAG" to get your hands on a bevy of limited edition CD-Extra contents including music videos for the band's latest singles "Real Ya yo," "Life Size," "Bad! Bad! Bad!" and "Please Marry Me" plus concert and backstage footage from the band's SXSW show! "FLAG" is out now!
