"I meet you. I tell all which I can't hide to you. It's not someday, it's tonight, absolutely." by ITSUE

【Band Introduction】
Mizuki's transparent voice and overflows of electric sounds by three males.
Dramatic and dark, beautiful, soft, solitary, strong, agitato...all are mixed together in our music.
Welcome to the 'ITSUE' world that only four of us can make.


【Band Profile】
Baba (Ba.) and Yoshida (Dr.) performed in another band and met Mizuki (Vo.) by chance on their live tour in 2008.
They felt fabulously interested in Mizuki's voice.
Baba, Yoshida and Mizuki started to make a band, songs, melodies and lyrics.
Kuji (Gt.), who was one of their support guitarist, joined.
Then, four of us formed 'ITSUE' in September 2010.
