androp is a 4-piece rock band who made a debut with their first album anew in December 2009.
They distinguish themselves in the music scene with their genreless and thoroughly elaborated sound approach and multilateral musical expression. Their visual world and art work have won worldwide acclaim; their music videos have received 11 domestic and international awards including the ones from Cannes International Advertising Festival (France), One Show (US) and Webby Awards (US). Their third full album period, released in March 2014, debuted as one of top five albums in the Oricon Daily Chart. At the end of the same month, they played at Yoyogi National Stadium first gymnasium in Tokyo as their first arena show without supporting acts which went sold out for 10,000 audience.
Their spectacular stage performance with the combined effects of projected image, audio and lighting has also been receiving remarkable attention.
From May to July in 2015, they held a national live house tour and played 39 shows in 36 cities, which became the highest number in the band’s career. On August 5, their self-titled new album androp is going to be released. It features 14 songs including “Yeah!Yeah!Yeah!” which is a current TV commercial song for Mitsuya Cider, “Shout”, “Ghost” (both were the theme songs of a TV drama) and “You Make Me” which was part of the soundtrack for Appleseed Alpha (a 3D computer-animated film released worldwide in 2014). As it shows, they have worked on a number of theme songs for films and TV dramas and their activities cover various fields.
