Since their humble DIY beginnings in late 1981, Osaka, Japan's Shonen Knife have been building a faithful following of rock enthusiasts and alternative rock elite, their relentless journey securing the band's place as one of the pioneer ambassadors of Japanese rock music and culture on the international stage. The rock and roll dreams of three girls blossomed into a reality and the trio continues now into its 36th year of international touring and recording with their 16th release Adventure recorded on Osaka in late 2015. The band features original members (and sisters) Naoko on Vocals and Guitar, Atsuko on Bass and Vocals and introduces their newest member, Risa, on drums and vocals. Naoko describes the "Adventure" album as Shonen Knife "passing through the 70's", born of influences such as Black Sabbath , Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest and The Ramones with a touch of The Supremes,” all presented through the lens of SK's charismatic pop, sunshine filled fantasy world.
Latest album Adventure features 10 new songs such as "Wasabi," a rocking ode to the spicy Japanese condiment, "Hawaii," a melancholy plea for a sunny holiday on a tropical island as well as the first single, the riff rock gem, "Jump into the New World”. The band has done continuous worldwide touring since the late 80's, sharing the stage with bands such as Nirvana, Redd Kross and Sonic Youth with performances at London's All Tomorrow's Festival, Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, Fuji Rock Festival in Japan and the Lollapalooza Festival. With the release of Adventure, Shonen Knife continues into 2016 with a tour of Europe in the spring followed by Japanese touring and an extensive run of North American performances in the fall.
