Pentagon Japan is a charismatic Visual Kei band taking the scene by storm with their eye-catching visual style and alternative metal and rock sound.
Founded by members of the popular session band “Call Me,” Pentagon Japan released a YouTube teaser video in late 2014. The video garnered thousands of views within days.
The band officially began activities on January 12th, 2015, with a sold-out first solo performance and every CD release ranking in the Oricon top 50 charts.
In September of 2016, before their 2nd anniversary, the band completed their first major tour which sold out venues and spanned all 47 prefectures of Japan. Pentagon Japan is number one among young Visual Kei bands in the scene today.
