lynch. is a very ambitious band, it’s members are anything but new to the music scene. The members come from other visual bands and in turn, bring their own styles to the group. Their sound is typically on the visual side but with a darker, harder edge. They have a lot of releases under their belt and it will be interesting to see what this band will contribute to the music world.
lynch. was formed in August 2004 by vocalist Hazuki (ex deathgaze), guitarist Reo (ex Gullet) and drummer Asanao (ex Sicstar). The three were eventually joined by Yukino (also ex Gullet) as their support bassist. The foursome held their first concert on December 27th in Shibuya CLUB QUATTRO.
Their first release was the ten track greedy DEAD souls album in April 2005. A release of this size for a new band was almost unheard of and it drew attention to the band. lynch. went on a few tours to promote the album as well as a coupling tour with deadman and a few events with Babylon. Their next release was the maxi underneath the skin in November, which sold out early on and is very hard to find now. lynch. finished up the year with the oneman tour underneath above ground.
In 2006, they held a twoman tour with deadman and it was so popular that four more dates were added on. In the summer, they released a new single, Grateful shit, and held a few lives to commemorate its release.
This year, however, they're more ambitious than ever. Their second full album, THE AVOIDED SUN, was released on April 25th and then they'll be embarking on a long tour that will last from the last week of April to the beginning of July.
In November 2007, lynch. released their new album "THE BURIED" in Europe and introduced their outstanding dark & rough music as real Nagoya Band to their growing fanbase.
