Earlier this week, Osaka melodic hardcore unit waterweed announced the release date for their upcoming 2nd album Brightest.

Forming in 2003 and debuting in 2007 with their EP Killing The Earth Means Our Suicide, the band have shared stages across Japan with top rock acts from label brothers FACT to Ken Yokoyama (Hi-STANDARD), and gained an international cult following whilst doing it.

Featuring 12 brand-new tracks, Brightest will be the band’s first full album release since their LP CICADA which released just over 3 years ago.

Coinciding with the album’s release in April, the trio will hold a 3 date tour that’ll take them to Takasaki, Osaka, and Nagoya.

waterweed have also released a 15 minute preview of the album on their record label maximum10’s official YouTube channel.
