TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GANGLION, the Otaku culture driving force and Japanese girl band, has announced the launch of a second European tour. The "GANGLION EUROPE TOUR 2015 'NEVER EVER AGAIN'" kicks off in France on November 14, 2015.
GANGLION was the only Japanese band invited to play at Oni-Con in US in 2014, where their hugely successful performance riled fans into a whirlwind of excitement. During their European tour, which began in March of 2015, they played across nine countries in five months, including France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, and Austria, where the band's kimono-clad performance garnered rave reviews by audiences. The band has performed at the Swiss anime convention "Polymanga 2015," which attracted a record-breaking 35,000 people, as well as at the Japanese cultural festival "JAPAN TOUCH HARU 2015," which was attended by 15,000 people in Lyon, France. GANGLION's live performances are packed with the sort of originality that resonates with their audience. Not only do they attract rock fans, but anime fans as well as visually-driven fans. The band’s high-energy spectacles have led to them be featured in 4 television shows, 14 magazines, and in other Internet-based media spanning 5 different countries.
Countless people who have experienced their music say, "GANGLION has it all - a unique sound, exhilarating performance, and great musical sensibilities.”

The band for a new generation, Japanese girl band GANGLION continues to fascinate the world as it captures attention from both Otaku and rock realms. Formed in August 2010, the members of the GANGLION band are Oni the lead vocal playing guitar, Sagara also on guitar, Ebi on bass, and Vivi on drums. The band's name “GANGLION” is derived from the meaning "the core of something coming into being." Although members have diverse musical roots in pop, rock, metal, emo, punk, loud rock, and electronica, the band's doctrine is to avoid being bound to any particular genre and focus on introducing new sounds.
Another highly appealing aspect of the band is their ninja-like ability to transform in both appearance and musical styles. GANGLION's upcoming European tour will feature "Save your Heart," which was simultaneously launched worldwide in 115 countries, and in addition, a new single slated for release in November will also be unveiled.
