For the last 19 years, ENVY have been creating the most intense fusion of emotive ballads with ferocious teeth gritting screaming hardcore. They have created their own sound with their speedy guitars, loud pounding bombastic drums, pummeling fretless bass lines, and heavy emotive vocals of Tetsu Fukagawa. 6 full lengths, numerous EPs and Split Singles later, they’ve earned the praise and admiration from the likes of Stuart Braithwaite(Mogwai) and Steve Aoki (Dim Mak). leading to highly acclaimed releases on Rock Action records, Dim Mak and Temporary Residence. Their live show is a fucking tornado leaving people crying in the crowd out of pure emotional intensity.

Since 1992, Envy has become a dominant band in the independent hardcore scene in Japan. Their music, through their own evolution, encompasses a sound where intensity and beauty coexists. They have recorded a number of singles and albums in Japan, including split albums with bands like This Machine Kills, Endeavor, Six Pence and Yaphet Kotto. Since their beginning, Envy has toured all throughout Japan with Mogwai, Isis and many more. They have labored and toured their songs relentlessly for over a decade, and will continue to do so well into the next decade.
Envy has just been added to this year’s Fuji Rock Festival.
AMATEUR TAKES CONTROL
A solo project by guitarist Adel Rashid, Amateur Takes Control (ATC) has evolved to its present 5 person line-up, creating music which is undeniably diverse in style and influence, yet still manages to showcase a seamlessness that justifies their identity as a group.
Known for their intense onstage performances and dedication to their craft, they have a passion about the music they’re creating – schizophrenetic, achingly emotive and a full throttle forward.
