SoundWitch PROFILE
SoundWitch was formed in Osaka, Japan in 2005 and performing in the Kansai area. In 2007 and 2008, they released three demo single CDs, and in July 2008 performed at the female vocalist festival, "ADDICT XX".

Maintaining their momentum, they moved into production of their first album and in April of 2009, "WICCAHOLIC" was released. For this release, they set out on a Japan-wide tour and released their first promotional music video, "WITHOUT". SoundWitch ended their tour in January 2010 with their first solo "one-man" live show in Osaka, performing 8 news songs which signalled the start of production on their 2nd album.

After the release, they began the "GROTESCA SHOW" tour country-wide, finishing the tour in November 2010 with a "two-man" show with their 413 Tracks label mates and friends "6ft. down". In March of 2011, the "KISS ME KILL ME" 2011 JAPAN TOUR CHAPTER ONE was announced.
