Eddie Japan has been described as “...a circus of jazzy horn lines and girl group cooing, of swinging ‘60s cool and odd ‘80s new wave.”. The band evokes a lush, cinematic retro-pop sound that would be perfect on a vintage James Bond film soundtrack.".
We're currently finishing up our next record, "Golden Age", with Greg Hawkes of "The Cars"! Greg also joined our recent sold out show to play The Cars' "Let's Go!", "Bye Bye Love", "Moving in Stereo" and Roxy Music's "Love is the Drug". It was a special night and the audience loved it!
- Opened for Midge Ure (Rich Kids, Visage, Thin Lizzy, Ultravox and solo).
- Opened for The Fixx ("One Thing Leads to Another", "Saved by Zero", "Red Skies at Night").
- Toured with Martha Davis and The Motels, with shows in Massachusetts, New York, Washington D.C. New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
- The wildly popular Harmonix Rockband 4 videogame featured our single, "Albert", alongside songs by The Black Keys, St. Vincent and Jack White.
- The video for “Fight Song,” an upbeat anthem inspired by the Madison, Wisconsin protests of 2011, was premiered in partnership with the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO on Labor Day of 2014. The track was recorded and produced by Scott Riebling (Weezer, Letters to Cleo, Fallout Boy).
- Performed at the 2013 NYC CMJ showcase, “The Outlaw Roadshow,” produced by Adam Duritz of Counting Crows and Ryan Spaulding of Ryan’s Smashing Life.
- Won the 2013 “Live Artist of the Year” Boston Music Award. The category competition included perennial local favorites, Aerosmith, Peter Wolf, and Dropkick Murphys.
