China’s first visual rock band are making a full-scale comeback this year, starting with their international debut single, “Pretty but Evil,” digitally released January 4, 2013. A rewritten English version of the single will be released this March, followed by a Japanese version. Silver Ash intends to become a fully international band, offering songs in English, Chinese, and Japanese, with big goals of conquering stages all around the globe.
Formed in the year 2000 in Beijing, China, Silver Ash pioneered China’s rock industry as China’s first visual rock band. With their unique sound and image inspired by Japanese visual kei, Silver Ash quickly gained an impressive following in Asia and broke release records that were previously unthought of in China.
Unfortunately they were stopped in their tracks in 2003 when extreme censorship by the Chinese government led to stalled record sales, cancellation US Tours, music festivals, and even music video play. But Silver Ash would not be defeated– until now they’ve performed in China as the guest of honor for Japanese rock bands La’Cryma Christi, Rice, and Gram∞Maria, and intend to keep moving forward on the international stage throughout this year.
