The AsterPlace
The Asterplace “座・アスタープレイス”

is coming back Kotoricon 2017 !

The Asterplace is a New York City,USA based “Tokyo Melodic-Core x Japanese 
Anime Rock Band” . They bone in Tokyo,Japan and moved their base to New 
York City to be a supernova in music industry. They perform at worldwide Rock festivals & Anime/culture conventions, mostly in North America and Europe.
 
“The Asterplace” can be defined as creating beautiful music, much like the 
beauty of a flower blossoming each year, representing the beautiful melody the 
band’s music creates. As the sun shines upon the world, as the moonlight upon 
the atmosphere, The Asterplace projects their music to the world.

So far The Asterplace has performed at more than 50 conventions and festivals 
as musical guests. One of their performances at Napoli ComiCon 2014 & 2015 
in Italy are fresh memories that you can remind them easily as their 4th time 
Europe tour. 

In order to create their compositions with a whole new energy, they use diversity 
to produce each tune. This group’s tremendous dedication to their work is 
evident, as they are constantly working, practicing, and thinking about new 
pieces. They are never satisfied until perfection is reached. The mixed cultural 
and newfound movement of The Asterplace's music constantly surprises their 
audience. Their sound deletes the barrier between ethnicities and other common 
boundaries, leaving an everlasting impression. With a variety of style, they rock 
each show away, each time becoming more unique. Believing in “live” 
performances, The Asterplace includes everyone in a way that will get you 
involved in their phenomenal show throughout the entire day!

The Asterplace are :
KOTA ”Elen” TSUKIMOTO : Vocal / Guitar
YATSUMI “ Hime” MURAKAMI : Keyboard / Back vocal
Kenny “ YAMASAKI” Leong : Bass 
Shusuke “Shu” Inaba : Drums
