ALL OFF


ALL OFF is a Japanese rock band based in Tokyo, who has performed openings and endings for Japanese anime such as Mob Psycho 100 and Heavy Object.

ALL OFF was formed in 2004 by singer so-hey and guitarist Yukio while they were in the same high school in Tokyo.  Starting off as a hobby band and not knowing how to play, sing, or write, they practiced hard and start to write original tunes when they were given a chance to appear on reality show on  MTV  Japan  in  early  2005,  which  so-hey  applied and won the audition to star on the show.

Soon after, they applied to the audition for rockin’on Japan, the most well-known rock magazine in Japan, who was looking for new talent to appear at one of the biggest rock festivals in Japan, “Count Down Japan”, which they ran.  ALL OFF was voted as a winner of the contest from general rock fans all over the country from a pool of more than 200 finalist bands and performed at Count Down Japan 2008.

After the show, they were given a chance to put out their first EP from the rocking’ on label and spent 2009 touring and creating “From Midnight To Sunshine”, which came out in mid 2010. At this point, guitarist Gaku joined the band as the final piece of the puzzle and started touring all over the country to cover their EP and played more than 60 shows.

In 2011, they signed with an indie label “No Big Deal Records” to put out more CDs and created 3 EPs and 1 full length album until 2014. Every year they played more than 80 shows as one of the most important heavy rock acts  in  Japan,  and  created  their  fan base which led them to perform at famous rock festivals in Japan such as Treasure05X, Merry Rock Parade, Rock In Japan, Count Down Japan and so on.

In late 2015, after more than a decade from the foundation, they finally signed with major label Warner Brothers Japan and started to play the opening and ending theme for Japanese anime such as Heavy Object and Mob Psycho 100. Thanks to these 3 songs, they suddenly created a worldwide fanbase and had their debut performance in the United States as one of the main musical guest at Otakon 2016. More than 2000 audience members enjoyed the show and turned the hall into a huge party zone.

After a short break, ALL OFF’s next aim is to attend many cons and tour around the U.S., which singer so-hey calls “his second home land” as he was raised and spent most time of his childhood in California. Get ready, Atlantic City!!
