Biography
Draft King is an all-girl rock band that formed in December 2012. Not much is known about this band, except for the fact that three of its members were involved with the former rock band Stereopony and that they created a Twitter account on 7 December 2012.

Draft King performed at Stereopony's STEREOPONY Lovers X'mas Live Final on 24 December 2012 as the opening act for the show, just three days before Stereopony's STEREOPONY Final Live BEST of STEREOPONY. After their performance, they announced themselves as a new band and would be performing at Mix UP!! vol.49 on 19 January 2013.

Draft King performed their first one man live Draft King ~Road to the 1st mission~ on August 10, 2013.

Draft King Facebook wrote:The long anticipated restart of Nohana on Bass, and Shiho on drums, who last year regrettably had to bring an end to Stereopony's activities after four years of work. Centering around these two, are the personal vocalist erica, and guitar/vocalist hiddy, who are both 19 years old. With the 20 year old mao, who has just passed her coming of age this year, the average age of this girls band is 20 years. The formation date of this band is cloudy, but they definitely perform energetic lives. They increase viewers by piling up lives. On the 10th of August, 2013, at Shibuya live house 'eggman', they have already had a One Man Live concert determined.
Involvement with Stereopony
Both Nohana and Shiho were members of the former rock band Stereopony. Mao was also involved with Stereopony, working with the band as a support guitarist for most of 2012 up until Stereopony's final live.

Agreed! I can't really say anything yet until I officially see what/how they perform and what their songs will sound like. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Well that was slightly unexpected... Apparently one of the songs Draft King performed today was "Ookami" most recently covered by Stereopony and originally by serialTVdrama. And another song they performed was also a cover of serialTVdrama.

Unfortunately, my friend in Japan doesn't know Draft King's original songs' names, but I assume it's the same two songs they performed at Stereopony's X'mas Live.

Man, I'm really missing AIMI right now...

Great news. I didn't expect NOHANA and SHIHO to form a new band this soon.

Anyway, what will happen to EVANPONY? Or was it a one-time thing only?

It's way too soon for Aimi to announce anything in my opinion. I'm cool with her chilling out at the moment until she's back to 1000% health before she starts anything officially... ah... but I do miss her bubbly personality...

From what I heard I think they're alright. It was very weird at first when I saw erica and hiddy walk onto the stage instead of AIMI at Stereopony's X'mas Live. If it weren't for hiddy being noticeably taller than AIMI, I would've believed she was AIMI with hair extensions haha.

It was said early October that Nohana and Shiho were going to continue the EVANPONY collaboration but there hasn't been any news since. I guess it either totally died out... or Draft King will collaborate with him at some later time.

Looks like I have to keep this group in mind! I wonder how long it will take before there is an official song from their hands. =) I hope Erica and Hiddy sing well, because I am really sensitive when it comes to singing... ^^

Updated the original post with a new image, link to Draft King website and Facebook, and translated Facebook bio.

VGD also has a new Facebook page dedicated to Draft King as well: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]



Draft King has announced that their first one man live will be on August 10, 2013. A little more than just four months away!

Hey guys,

I just updated the original post with a new image and new links. At Very Good Days we recently changed the entire look of our website, forum, and gallery, and now that Draft King is more active, we have finally transitioned to cover Draft King news and info. So, check out the new VGD for Draft King info: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Our friend Naoki (you may know him on Twitter as @nokmr or @stereoponylover) has kindly been helping us too. He snapped a photo of Draft King's set list for us. Surprisingly, Draft King has enough songs to release a full album: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

He also emailed me scans of Draft King's appearances in the eggman magazine, which our translators are currently working on: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Our biggest accomplishment so far is translating every single nohana blog entry to date into English and re-hosting all the images, so our blog archive is a good place to start if you haven't kept up with Draft King news: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Even Nohana was amazed: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Last but not least, there's finally videos of Draft King performing but you can only view them through iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. Check them out for what's to come: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Be warned that StageAce only lets visitors watch the full-length video only once and only shows 30 second previews after the first view.

Currently, no one at VGD has all the equipment necessary to mirror an iOS device to a computer screen, record the video, and record the audio at the same time, so if anyone here is familiar with recording with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and can help us, that would be super awesome! Most of our members don't own Apple products and haven't had the chance to watch the videos yet, so any help would be appreciated!

Anddd that's all the news I have to report on this topic.

Please "like" VGD on Facebook if you haven't done so yet:

after watching their videos particularly this one

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I'm really excited about their music

It's just that their style is very different from other girl bands for instance
Scandal is the do it all type of band, the most versatile 
FLiP is always in "attack mode"
Silent Siren is the "Cute/Pop" type
Draft King is __________ I still don't know but it's different that's why I'm really anxious about their future projects

Wow just found out about them and watched the videos on their YT channel and the short MV and it sounds really good and interesting!

Waiting for more songs and an album now  Nice One

On a side note, not sure why they have King in the band name for an all-girl band but ok lol =P
