Japanese instrumental rock band LITE announce UK / EU live dates


LITE return for live shows in UK and Europe this October


Praise for LITE

“Acolytes of Don Caballero, Parts & Labor and the like, rejoice! Even without vocals, the band packs plenty of potent, progressive punches.” – CLRVYNT

“Despite their ludicrously tight and impossibly technical musicianship, Tokyo band LITE walk a fine line between autistic guitar-noodle perfectionism and genuine organic “holy shit that’s cool” exhibitionist thrills.” – Noisey

“With 14 years experience under their belt LITE’s interplay is nigh-on telepathic, with the group navigating incredible swoops and curves with remarkable confidence.” – Clash


LITE is a Japanese instrumental rock band known for thrilling and emotional compositions, progressive, edgy riffs and complex rhythms. Widely regarded for their explosive live show and tireless touring in the US, Europe and Asia, LITE are one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Japan in the last decade.

On their fifth album, Cubic, out now via Topshelf, LITE creates music with a heartbeat. Cubic was mixed at Machines With Magnets with Keith Souza (Battles) and mastered by Heba Kadry (!!!, Prefuse 73, The Mars Volta) at Timeless Mastering in New York. Now they bring their renowned live show to the UK and Europe through October 2017.
