Nani? Loudness is Still Around And Are Coming to the U.S.

Raise your hands if you remember Loudness. They were probably the biggest Japanese export of the 80's by far with regular video play on MTV's Headbangers Ball. I was always kind of surprised how they were the only band to have success out of Japan quite honestly as the Japanese have always had an appetite for Western music. Well fast forward 30+ years and they are still doing their thing having released a staggering 23 studio albums of which five were released in the U.S. and probably three of those I remember.Apparently the band is coming to the U.S. for a tour. With who or when is still unknown. I remember reading something somewhere about their original drummer having died of cancer awhile back which sucks.

So let's take a short trip down memory lane with the guys from Loudness after the jump. Domo Arigato.
