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 shows and tireless touring in the US, Europe, and Asia, the Japanese quartet has also established itself as one of the most influential groups across a host of sub-genres. Though usually referred to by touchstones such as “math-rock” or “post-rock,” LITE has developed an uncanny ability to fuse their influences into their own unmistakable dialect that defies generic genre classification.
LITE boasts a tremendous back catalog of six full- length albums and many EPs. Their 6th album “Multiple” was released in June 2019, followed by a tour of 20 headliner shows from Asia to North America. In October 2021, they created the full soundtracks for the Japanese movie "Damashie no kiba" and the Netflix animation movie "Bright:Samurai Soul".
To mark their 20th year together, 2023 will be placed under the sign of renewal, with the release of original music establishing a brand-new LITE, and an active touring to make them live on stage.
