Bandai Namco Music Live Launches “MoooD Records”!

What You Need to Know:

  • Bandai Namco Music Live already manages various labels such as Lantis, which produces music related to anime, and Kiramune, a label for talented male voice actor artists. With the evolving definition of “anime songs” and the surging global popularity of Japanese anime, we have launched the new label MoooD Records. This label stems from our desire to connect dreams to reality not only in Japan but also worldwide through the circle of music. (The “ooo” in “MoooD” represents interconnected circles of music.)
  • The label will boast a lineup of talented artists who are expected to make waves on the global stage, starting with the “Samurai Guitarist” MIYAVI, who has already captivated audiences worldwide and serves as the first Japanese goodwill ambassador for the UNHCR, and ASH DA HERO, a mixture rock band whose second cour intro theme song “Judgement” for the TV anime Blue Lock has garnered over 15 million views. More artists with the potential for global success will be added to the label in the coming future. Please stay tuned for future releases from MoooD Records!

    MIYAVI has gained worldwide attention as a guitarist for his unconventional “slap guitar” style, in which he plays the electric guitar with his fingers instead of a pick. He has performed more than 380 live shows in 30 some countries, and has 9 successful world tours under his belt. Other accomplishments include performing the national anthem at the Dodger Stadium in the US, delivering the opening performance at the National Stadium during the visit of the Paris Saint-Germain soccer team to Japan, and providing music and halftime performances for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors.

    Apart from his musical pursuits, MIYAVI made his Hollywood debut as an actor in Angelina Jolie’s film “Unbroken.” He also graced the runway of Paris Fashion Week as a model for Yohji Yamamoto and Y-3 and was the first Japanese person to be featured in advertisements for the GUCCI Global Collection. In recent years, he has also been actively involved in advertising campaigns for companies like DELL and McLaren. In 2017, he became the first Japanese to be appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).

    In November 2022, he announced the formation of the band “The Last Rockstars” with YOSHIKI, HYDE, and SUGIZO. As the “Samurai Guitarist,” he is constantly taking on new challenges and is one of the most promising Japanese artists active on the international stage.

    Formed by ASH (Vo.), Narukaze (Gt.), Sato (Ba.), WANI (Dr.), and Dhalsim (DJ), this five-member band creates music rooted in rock, punk, and hip hop, expressed through a versatile style. ASH’s vocal strength and the band’s collective, overwhelming live performances are a must-see. This is a new era mixture rock band where five talents have fatefully converged.
