Japanese girls rock band BRATS have released their new music video “Nounai Shoukyo Game” (“Brain Erase Game”), the theme song from the upcoming film Slaveman, directed by Noboru Iguchi (Machine Girl, Robogeisha, Prison School).
BRATS (featuring Rei Kuromiya of LADYBABY/The Idol Formerly Known As) recently announced their return to live performances, and the applications for their March 29th free live show “Reborn” at Ikebukuro LIVE INN ROSA reached capacity in less than two hours after the announcement.
“Nounai Shoukyo Game” is the follow-up to the band’s recent release of “Ainikoiyo” (“Come see me”), the opening theme for the anime series To Be Hero.
Rei Kuromiya (vocals) (16 years old)
Aya Kuromiya (bass) (18 years old)
Hinako (guitar) (20 years old)
BRATS formed in August 2011 when Rei Kuromiya, who has been a junior idol since she was 8 years old, became a vocalist at the age of 10. Rei’s sister Aya Kuromiya plays the bass, and Aya’s friend Hinako plays the guitar. Rei Kuromiya was chosen as “Miss iD 2015” at an idol contest hosted by Koudansha in September, 2014, and her popularity increased when she joined the idol group “LADYBABY” with Rie Kaneko (Miss iD 2015 Gran Prix) and cross-dressing performer Ladybeard. After Ladybeard left the group, Rei formed a new unit “The Idol Formerly Known As LADYBABY” with Rie Kaneko. BRATS released the song “14-sai byou” (“14-year old disease”) in 2015, produced by URBANGARDE’s Temma Matsunaga. Their song “Ainikoiyo” (“Come see me”) was released in 2016 as the opening theme for the anime series To Be Hero.
