Ten years of Gacharic Spin! To celebrate this milestone, the group is releasing a ten year retrospective at the end of the month with this track “Gyakkyou Hero (逆境ヒーロー)” right at the top of the playlist. Here for a bit of lubricant to your wallet, the group drops the promotional video for that lead track. “Gyakkyou Hero” has all the pieces in place: Hana with the impossible task of lead vocals and drums, dizzying keyboard sounds, slap-happy bass guitars, and quick-paced intensity. Gacharic Spin also doubles down with a pair of new girls: Angelina 1/3 and yuri. We only get to see Angelina 1/3 in “Gyakkyou Hero”, so I’m sure there’s more to come. “Gacha 10BEST” goes on sale March 27 at the retailers listed below.
Gacharic Spin is an all-female Japanese rock band formed in 2009 by former high school classmates. Currently composed of four instrumentalists and one performer, almost all the members have performed lead vocals, although drummer Hana and keyboardist Oreo Reona are the main singers. Gacharic Spin have performed live at Anime Matsuri in Texas, at Japan Expo in France, and had a concert in South Korea; they also performed at Tekko in Pittsburgh. Together with vocalist Fuki from Light Bringer, all four instrumentalists from Gacharic Spin are also in the band Doll$Boxx which formed in 2012. The four also have an alter ego band called Metallic Spin where they cover classic heavy metal songs, currently with Saber Tiger vocalist Takenori Shimoyama. Gacharic Spin’s current lineup includes members F Chopper Koga (F チョッパー KOGA, bass, bandleader), Hana (はな – drums, vocals), Tomo-zo (guitar, vocals), Oreo Reona (オレオレオナ), keyboards, vocals, acoustic guitar), Angelina 1/3 (アンジェリーナ1/3, Mic performer), and yuri.
