I can tell you that they have one of the most awful managements in relation to foreigners. Some editions of their releases, you can buy only joining to the fanclub, but even if you join it, you can only pay via bank transfer in a Japanese bank. Which you can't do without living in Japan. To buy some of their releases, I have come to search at an internet auction or ask a friend who currently lives in Japan to place an order. The same goes for the upcoming online concert. I don't know how it's possible to buy a ticket from abroad.

In order to register [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , you need a Japanese residential address and a japanese phone number to which a sms will be sent. And finally they don't answer to questions in Twitter about how you can buy a ticket from abroad and another, total ignoring.

White Flag ^This is really sad. Considering they were scheduled to tour in Europe, it means their management does know they have overseas fans. But yet in a time when the band needs as much support as they can get during COVID-19, their livestream is limited to Japan only  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Awww, that is sad, DESURABBITS are an idol group but they go out of their way to make their foreign fans feel welcome and even learned English so they could do that better.


I know Aldious and like their music but I had no idea it was that hard.

Aldious' new vocalist R!n seems quite fluent in English (at least, by jrock standards), so much so I think she can probably do MCs entirely in basic English at overseas shows. Also, she seems to handle the songs by both previous vocalists well, which means she can leverage the band's entire discography when putting together killer live setlists. Was looking forward to seeing her help improve the band's international exposure this way, but it's sad to find out they're not getting the backend support they need.

Hopefully things will get better once they can resume their Europe tour and/or if they finally figure out how to do an international livestream [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Toki will also be back and well-rested from her maternity leave by then.

It's hard for me too to understand why it is so complicated with this band. I follow a lot of Japanese groups. And most them, like you said, try to be more loyal to foreign fans. Some create special online shops for foreigners, they go on tour around the world, online broadcasting of concerts around worldwide, etc. At now Aldious more than 10 years old band and they haven't had a trip abroad yet, except the recent NAMM at the beginning of the year. Why they are still so closed in this relationship I don't know.  But I know for they are losing a lot of money. I know a lot of people who would like to buy their releases and goods and watching online concert, but they can't do it because of these restrictions.

It is true that R!n knows very well, including singing in English. Marina also speak English and she was a person, who negotiated with JPU, about  release Aldious albums, if I'm not mistaken. The others don't know well.

In general, I also hope that this situation will soon change and the current band isolation from the rest of the world will be removed.

Unfortunately I think it all boils down to their popularity. It does cost additional money to cater to overseas fans, of which perhaps they earn too little for their label to want to invest in them, especially during the pandemic now. 

An illustration of what I mean by lack of popularity: Aldious only has ~7K+ active monthly listeners on Spotify. This could partly be due to the fact they only have 1 of their 6 studio albums (not including Evoke) available there, but that in itself also shows how their international outreach needs to be improved.

This is as compared to their all-female band peers such as Silent Siren and Band-Maid who each have 100K+ active listeners and of course our favourite Scandal which is closing in on 300K. Sure, Spotify listeners isn't a tell-all measure of international popularity, but it is one of many reliable indicators. Hence I was really looking forward to their European tour to finally give them the boost they need.

Listeners at Spotify aren't exactly making a big difference. Look at Lovebites band, they playing in the same genre and have not much more listeners. But they very often travel to Europe and even was performed at the famous Wacken Open Air metal festival. I think it depends on the management of the group. Also BRIDEAR, Mary's Blood, NECRONOMIDOL, FATE GEAR, in my memory, traveled abroad. They are too not so popular bands like. However, they did tours abroad.

^Ah ok, I get what you mean [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]  Where I was coming from is just that each label will use some indicator of popularity to decide how much of their resources to spend on each artiste. As you correctly pointed out, a large part of this also depends on how resourceful the label is in the first place. 

Not sure about the others, but Lovebites is signed to Victor and Bridear was at some point to Sony I think, so having a more resourceful label does help  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Thank you for watching Aldious first live, without an audience!
If you live abroad, I'm sorry that we haven't been able to clear copyright issues and you can't buy tickets on Streaming+!
That's why we're releasing the song "Spirit Black" from our live show today. Enjoy!

^My heart skipped a beat when I saw that video on my YouTube feed lol. Toki looks soooo happy to be back. Seems like she was trying to make eye contact with Yoshi during the guitar duel bit, but Yoshi was being all cool  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
