Japanese rock band One OK Rock hit Southern California on its “Eye of the Storm” tour supporting their 9th album of the same name, released in February. OOR brought with them Los Angeles based band Weathers. Both bands brought high energy and frontmen, Cameron and Takahiro, have a talent for engaging the audience and encouraging participation. Highly acclaimed and popular in their home country, One OK Rock are out to win over the international market and have made great strides in the US over the last few years regularly appearing in festivals like Warped Tour and Aftershock and opening for big tours such as Linkin Park, Yellowcard and Ed Sheeran. Their discography ranges from alternative rock to pop punk to post grunge to power pop not wanting to constrict where their creative styles may take them. The band was signed to record label Fueled by Ramen in 2016 in addition to having already been signed to Japanese label Amuse, Inc. If the SoCal crowd in Anaheim is any indication, the band is well on its way to becoming a big name act in the United States. After hitting a few select cities in Oregon and California, they then dropped down to Mexico before heading back to Japan for headlining arena dates in September on through to the new year. While awaiting another US run, check out their nine albums and I’m sure you’re going to find one that speaks to you. You’ll be ready the next time this foursome hit the continent.
