Welcoming back the face-melting madness of Bo Ningen – one of the greatest Japanese rock bands of the 21st Century!
Their debut RMH appearance in 2018 was the stuff of legends… and our eardrums are just about ready for Round 2.
“Towering, deafening and fond of a destructive stomp – a psychedelic showcase of cosmic shock and awe” – The Guardian
Wooed by many high-profile acts wanting to take them on tours and featured as icons in McQ by Alexander McQueen’s campaign and works by Juergen Teller, as well as some of the world’s biggest festivals putting their name on their lineup including Glastonbury, Coachella, and Fuji Rock, Bo Ningen embody today’s art/music scene where crossovers of different cultures are flourishing. They are fusing disparate sounds and influences into a fierce, eclectic torrent of grooves and bringing them across the oceans.
This journey has been a success – Bo Ningen’s fearsome live reputation has led them to tour and appear with such notable artists as Nick Cave, Primal Scream, Super Furry Animals, Kasabian, TV on the Radio, The Fall, and Savages to name a few.
Their iconic look is only surpassed by their intense live performances, which have earned them a place as one of the most captivating live acts in the UK. Having released 3 albums so far, they are currently working on their new album scheduled to be released in 2020, recorded around the world in London, Tokyo and LA in a constant search for inspiration.
“Their ability to wring multiple surprising moments out of one monster riff is one of the things that make Bo Ningen so thrilling – not so much Godzillas as Mothras of invention” – The Guardian
“If you like your guitar sounds wild and free and falling apart, you couldn’t ask for a more fun psychedelic ride” – The Quietus
“The fusion of rhythm fighting against musical aggression has never sounded so thrilling” – The Line of Best Fit
