Beginning as a visual-kei band, Exist Trace (stylized as exist†trace) has become a hard rock tour-de-force in the Japanese music scene. With a long history and impressive resume, the female quintet's original lineup—Jyou (Vo), Miko (Gt / Vo), Omi (Gt), Naoto (Ba), and Mally (Dr)—is still transcending music genres, gender tropes, and expectations. Taking elements from traditional rock, gothic, heavy metal, J-rock, pop, industrial, and more, exist†trace expresses ‘traces of existence’ in their music and is capable of rallying voices and inspiring spirits across every type of border. Over the course of their four full-length albums, eight mini albums, and eight singles, the band has produced many memorable anthems including ‘Dream Rider,’ ‘Existence,’ ‘Vanguard,’ and more. With striking visuals from the elegant to the intense, the band’s live performances have energized audiences across Japan and abroad. No stranger to international attention, exist†trace has toured Europe twice (2008 and 2010) as well as the United States with convention performances in Seattle, Dallas, and Pittsburgh as well as an east coast tour. In 2022, exist†trace entered a new phase of international expansion signing with Setsuzoku Records and Orion Live.
NEO JAPANESE HEROINE is a blistering 12-track remastered collection of the band's favorite tracks from 2016 to 2020. It marks the first official international release for the legenday group, and hopefully the first of many!
