alice nine. is a visual rock band with a special sound, difficult to define: Their music varies between soft alternative rock and harder rock.The band began in 2004 and got off to a quick start as both the first and second press of their first single sold out immediately! In the years following, this five member group has shown no sign of slowing down.
In the year 2004 alice nine. was formed with the five members; Shou, Hiroto, Tora, Saga and Nao. Their first concert was held at the Ikebukuro Cyber on May 11, 2004 and in November, they started a nation-wide tour with the band Karen from Under Code Productions.
After a series of releases on PS Company, alice nine. released their major label debut Kasou Mushou Shi on King Records in 2005, and is currently signed to both labels.
In 2006, alice nine. had two songs, „Akatsuki” and “Ikuoku no Chandelier”, used for the opening and closing of the anime series “Meine Liebe Wieder”. Zekkeishoku debuted on the Oricon daily charts at #4, and they completed a fan only tour called "Kacho Fugetsu Vol. 1" in support of the album.
In 2007, they performed at J-Rock Revolution in Los Angeles, California, on May 25, 2007 along with several other Japanese bands. It was their first performance outside of Japan.
They have now finished their one-man tour 'BLACK JEWEL, WHITE ROSE 2007" and are continuing to improve and develop new ways of making music.
