Esprit D’Air has released their brand new single, 津波 (‘Tsunami’) worldwide today accompanied by a video filmed and edited by Mind Art Visual (Skindred, KK’s Priest).
津波 (‘Tsunami’) is a hard-hitting djent and melodic metal track with lyrics inspired by recent events and coronavirus controversies.
As featured on Billboard, Loudwire & Kerrang! Radio, Esprit D’Air is a London-based Japanese melodic metal and electronicore solo project led by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Kai. Kai has been keeping busy during the pandemic—releasing every six weeks, with 津波 (‘Tsunami’) being his sixth release this year.
Esprit D’Air will return to London for a live show at O2 Academy Islington on 20th February 2022, performing brand new songs from their upcoming album, Oceans. The upcoming show will be their first live audience show since their sold-out headline performances at The Underworld Camden and Boston Music Room in 2018. With Kai on vocals and guitar, the live band will be a five-piece featuring Ryo on guitar, Yusuke on guitar, Takeshi (ex member of Japanese power metal band Knights of Round) on bass, and Jan-Vincent Velazco (Pendragon) on drums.
Esprit D’Air’s critically-acclaimed debut album Constellations crowned them as winners in the best metal album of 2018 at The Independent Music Awards at famous The Lincoln Center of Performing Arts, New York, among an esteemed judging panel featuring Amy Lee (Evanescence), Slayer, Sepultura, Tom Waits, and more.
