About Unite Asia

The main inspiration of this website is the dearth of information about Asian bands and what they’re up to. As someone who LOVES music I have always found it strange that every day I scour the world’s huge database of punk/hardcore/metal websites such as Lambgoat, Punknews, Metal Injection, Dying Scene, In Effect, Double Cross, Legends Arising, The PRP, etc., and I am only ever able to read up on bands from the west (mainly USA). Personally, the music news that I ACTUALLY want to find out about is stuff going on around here in Asia. The only way I can stay abreast of Asian related music news is by physically going onto each band’s website. In my 15 years of King Ly Chee, I am honored to have built relationships with countless bands, labels, promoters, organizations ALL over this fine continent of ours…however, I literally don’t have the time in the day to hit EACH band, label or promoter’s websites to find out about them!

So – why don’t we bring all this information to one easy location.

Here you have Asia’s own answer to international punk, hardcore, metal news websites…

Please help us spread the word! Let’s get the world talking about Asia.Peace,
Riz

*If your band, label or tour agency have ANY upcoming events you want us to put up simply click SUBMIT NEWS above, we’ll review the info, and then put it up for you!dadsofiaSome information about me:
I sing in a hardcore band from Hong Kong called King Ly Chee and have recently started a new band called Dagger where I play guitar in. The name of this website comes from a song called Unite Asia that I wrote in the band King Ly Chee back in ’08 right before we toured Asia with NOFX. The lyrics of the song can be found below and the song is playing on our UniteAsia.org music player.

UNITE ASIA

This is our time
EVERYONE RISE
This is our time
WE WILL RISE

From the streets of Hong Kong
We hear your voices loud.
We know all about the struggles you face…
It’s this for which we’re bound.

Our differences are our strength
Our diversity unites us
Our will to persevere is why stand as one
STAND AS ONE

We will rise – as long as you’re by my side
We will rise – no longer pushed aside

Look at what we’ve been through
Look at what we’ve been through
It’s time for me and you to
UNITE ASIA

I see the desperation in your eyes,
UNITE ASIA

When it feels like no one hears you your spirit dies
UNITE ASIA

To those with no hope I sing to you
UNITE ASIA

Look around this room,
you’ll see that we stand with you.

WE STAND WITH YOU.

From the streets of Hong Kong
We hear your voices loud.
We know all about the struggles you face…
It’s this for which we’re bound.

We will rise – as long as you’re by my side
We will rise – no longer pushed aside

We stand as one

RISE…

We will rise.
