ROTH BART BARON is an folk rock band based in Tokyo, Japan. Member : Masaya Mifune (vo/gt) , Tetsuya Nakahara (dr).

 

Influenced by modern rock and folk music, ROTH BART BARON’s beautiful melody and attractive musical arrangement leaves strong impression along with their philosophical depth lyrics in Japanese.

 

1st AL “The Ice Age” (2014) was recorded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, co-produced by Brian McTear (Kurt Vile, the War on Drugs) and mixed by Jonathan Low (The National, Sufjan Stevens). 2nd AL “ATOM” (2015) was recorded at “Hotel2tango”, the God Speed You! Black Emperor's studio in Montreal, Canada. EP “dying for” (2017) was recorded in London, UK with Bradley Spence (Alt-J, Kasabian) and Alexander Beitzke (James Arthur, Florence + the Machine).

 

In 2018, 3rd AL “HEX” became their first self-produced released in Japan. Engineered by Chicago’s Grammy Award winning engineer L10 Mixed-It (Chance the Rapper, Noname), mastered by Chris Athens at TX studio, Austin Texas. The positive reviews soon proved to be selected as one of the best albums of the year in numerous music media.

 

Their enthusiastic success lead the band to performed in larger scale music festivals including “SUMMER SONIC”, “FUJI ROCK Festival” in Japan. And crossing the borders, held "US-Tour 2014” & ”ASIA TOUR 2016” including ”Big Mountain Music Festival '15" in Thailand, and "PLAYTIME FESTIVAL ’16" in Mongolia. Also as a solo, the vocal guitarist, Masaya Mifune, was chosen to perform at the Tokyo show of a “Celebration David Bowie 2017” world tour in February 2017, left great remarks.

Roth Bart Baron,东京出身的双人摇滚乐队。由三船雅也(Vo, Gt)和中原铁也(Ds)组成,2008年开始活动。乐队的名字来自于三船幼儿园时在《天鹅湖》中扮演Von Rothbart的经历。乐队运用多样的乐器营造出广阔的音乐空间,在日系独立乐队中独树一帜,也引起了业内和音乐爱好者的广泛关注。演出更是注重现场体验,充满戏剧感的表演让人不敢懈怠半分,生怕为某个瞬间而留下遗憾。2014年冬天,乐队远赴费城,与新锐音响工程师Jonathan Low(The National “Trouble Will Find Me”, Sufjan Stevens等)及制作人Brian McTear(Kurt Vile、War on Drugs等) 合作录制首长全长专辑,“The Ice Age” (「ロットバルトバロンの氷河期」)。专辑于2014年4月16由七尾旅人、Spangle call Lilli line、downy等音乐人所属的独立厂牌felicity出品,被多数音乐媒体评选为年度最佳。同年夏天,乐队登上SUMMER SONIC等大型音乐节的舞台,并在10月随着黑胶版发售重返北美进行首发巡演。

经过一年半的等待,新专辑“ATOM”将于2015年10月21日同时发售CD与黑胶版本。这一次,乐队在蒙特利尔Godspeed You! Black Emperor成员Mauro Pezzente的Hotel2Tango录音,并与Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra)等音乐人合作,实现了音乐生涯的又一次蜕变。
“ATOM”的灵感来自于成员童年时代观看的科幻电影的印象。当时电影中描绘的近未来即我们所生活的当下,记忆与现实的碰撞与思考融合在曲中,呈现出Roth Bart Baron独特的世界观。
乐队即将带着新专辑上路展开日本全国巡演,也期待着这一次可以把Roth Bart Baron的声音带去未曾到达的更加广阔的世界。
