International metal giants Loudness will release their new album EVE TO DAWN on August 14th via FrostByte Media. EVE TO DAWN marks the legendary Japanese band’s 26th studio album since their inception in 1981 (Loudness just celebrated their 30th anniversary last year). EVE TO DAWN is a spectacularly heavy opus from the “beast from the east” and is Loudness’ first North American release in years.
Known for their blistering technical ability, Loudness was formed in Japan in 1981 by guitarist Akira Takasaki and late drummer Munetaka Higuchi. With four very successful and critically-acclaimed albums under their belt in their native Japan, Loudness became the first Japanese heavy metal band to sign to a major label in the United States. With an astonishing 26 studio albums, numerous EPs, live albums and videos, Loudness show no signs of slowing down as the band continues to tour the world extensively in support of EVE TO DAWN. To date, Loudness has sold upwards of one million albums worldwide. Loudness is: Minoru Niihara (vocals), Akira Takasaki (guitars), Masayoshi Yamashita (bass guitar) and Masayuki Suzuki (drums).
