HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

The biggest event of last year should be "Yoshu-Fukushu", the 6th MTH full-length studio album released for the first time in 6 years!

Before the release, there was an exciting web event for the music video premiere of the first song from this album. We asked you to search the words on the internet we indicated to find the right one to win a chance to see the video. And when the album was released, we had a "Back Cover Campaign" and asked you to show the back cover of the album to the sales clerks when you buy it to win a prize. We really appreciate the support of the CD stores.
And after all that, "Yoshu-Fukushu" reached No.1 on ORICON chart and stayed there for 3 consecutive weeks! Even though the release was in the end of July which is already in the second half of year, the album went No.1 on the 2013 annual ORICON chart too!!

This is all because of the devoted HARAPEKO fans and everyone concerned for the release. Thank you very much!

MTH is now on "Yoshu-Fukushu Tour" through out the nation which will end in April this year. So it has just past the half way but all the tickets have sold out. Each shows has been a raging party!!

The momentum will be kept after the tour too so don't miss our updates. We would like to borrow the words from a Japanese "Magical Girl Anime", PreCure - Nao's 3-year-old girl loves this one -;

"I can't stop throbbing!!"

We really expecting your continued support of all of you in 2014! We wish you another Menkata-Kotteri year.

Maximum the Hormone and Mimikajiru

Happy New Year!

Last year, we had many exciting events.
A special live show, Master Of Territory which provided the venue floor divided in a grid and each cell was given to a member or a couple of the audience.
Also, the prizes of the lottery people can enter with the "mystery entry ticket" set in the single CD, "Greatest The Hits 2011- 2011" were announced.
And the lottery was held and winners were announced. One of the prizes was a "sleepover party with MTH" at MTH fans' house and it was conducted wonderfully.

The band went on Oyaji-Garare (old-man robbee)Tour and after that, performed at various summer music festivals too. There were a lot of memorable shows last year!!

In 2013, MTH will be performing at OzzFest Japan! The headliners will be Black Sabbath and Slipknot.
And MTH members and Mimikajiru staff are now planning something really special and big for 2013. And finally you might be able to expect next something for the first time in 6 years...

Thank you for your support and I hope you will be sticking with us in 2013 as well.

We wish you a Menkata Kotteri (half-boiled noodle and greasy soup) year!

Maximum The Hormone and Mimikajiru staff

The Europe tour named 〈EURO TOUR 2011〉ENON the movie has been done with the final show at Koln, Germany!All the shows were fantastic.

MTH performed at a great metal festival, HELLFEST with world-class big names.
Then they toured Europe as the headliner and performed at 5 cities.
As the band visited France, the UK and Germany 3 years ago, we could see some Harapeko faces we have seen before which impressed the members and the staff.

We are not sure when, but MTH spent great time abroad and loved to feel different cultures over there so really cannot wait to come back!
So please try to memorize all the lyrics by then!! ; )


17.Jun.2011

 
MTH performed at HELLFEST (Clisson, France). The people were just
watching what was going on on the stage at the beginning but finally,
they were all forced to participate in the conventional "love charm"ritual with the band!
MTH exploded their hormone power to the amazingly big crowd in frontof the main stage!!

Yesterday, MTH Europe headlining tour "ENON THE MOVIE" started.
They are going on the rampage in Europe!!



21.Feb.2011

 
MTH accomplished The tour with 5 shows in Japan, "Greatest The Hits" with success!
The kick off was Nagoya and the final was in Osaka, which is a bit unusual schedule this time.
The tickets sold out for all the venues and we had crazy 5 nights with locals' fists up in the air.

Those who missed the shows this time, please check MTH's future schedule
because they have already decided to perform at some Summer events.
And also keep checking the schedule for their shows which will be added.

We would like to thank to all the fans came to shows, staff worked for the shows and bands shared the stages!!

 


21.Feb.2011

 
We have informed that MTH is attending a big event in France, "HELLFEST".
And now we would like to announce the band is going on a headlining tour in Europe.
This is going to be the first time in 3 years!!

A French hardcore band, Tagada Jones is joining to the tour as support for all the shows.
This Europe tour is called "ENON THE MOVIE"!! lol
ENON series will go abroad!But of course there will be no movie related tothis tour. Just a joke title...

Anyway, MTH is ready to shake venues in Europe!!

For the first time in about 3 years, MTH new single,
"Greatest The Hits 2011 -2011" will be released!

 
Will that be the greatest hits title though it is a single CD??
What does 2011 - 2011 mean?! OK, they are funking around again.

But this title is showing MTH's message that saying
"Greatest Hits doesn't necessarily mean a collection of past titles. We can say these new songs are our best!"

Tracklisting;
 
"Utsukushiki Hitobito No Uta" (Ode To Bluetiful People) - a song about the darkness in Ryo-kun's mind and severe experience with his depressed friends.

"maximum the hormone" - The real new song played after the music video of a
FAKE happy song "Chiisana Kimi No Te" (Your Little Hands). First self-titled song ever.

→ Watch the movie.

"my girl" - For this song, the footage with ONLY the reactions of
staff listening to the song (that means song itself was muted) was posted on the website. 
 
And there was no plan for the release at that point but here it is!
All these 3 are the masterpieces! All these 3 are the stars!All A-sides!
And there will be a great bonus booklet in the product!

Which is the edited version of Bubuka magazine series column, "Maximum The Ryo-kun's Legal Trip".
This is the rock you can read, this is the answer from Ryo-kun to the modern society full of drug problems!!
Also, there will be 3 types of front covers and a mysterious application ticket in a product!Big deal!

In Japan, the graduations are in March. So it is the season of cherry blossoms and graduation songs.
But MTH, which has no sense of the season, will be blowing up a storm!!




27.Jan.2011
 
MTH made their 1st show abroad at the North America tour in 2008.
Then performed at the biggest rock festival in South Korea, and toured Europe after that.
And this year, MTH is performing at one of the biggest heavy music festival in France, "HELLFEST 2011".
This will be the second time for the band to visit France!

MTH is appearing on the main stage sharing it with
Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Bad Brains, Converge and many other big names!!
As this will be their show abroad finally again, MTH will bang all the Japanese spirit they have down the stage!!

This is a great chance to see MTH and many other great bands at a time.
So maybe you want to go on a little trip to France for some vacation and headbanging?!

[HELLFEST 2011]

Place: Clisson, France
Dates: June 17th, 18th and 19th 
*Maximum The Hormone will be performing on 17th, at Main Stage 2
*Please see more detail at Hellfest 2011 official website. http://www.hellfest.fr/


24.Jan.2011
 
"Jigoku-ezu" is a series of infamous Summer events held by MTH with grueling preconditions.
As the band receives a lot of different complaints such as
"Do your shows at larger venues! We cannot get tickets!!",
"If you are a rock band, play at smaller venues!!" and so on.
Then the band released their anger as the answer to these complaints, which is kind of misplaced, though.
MTH decided to present hellish events, "Jigoku-ezu (The Inferno)".

MTH members always pass their phisical limits at shows,
but for these events, they impose even harder conditions to themselves on stages.
So it is super sadistic but could be super masochistic at the same time.

Examples of the preconditions of the events are "with down-jacket after eating garlic clove"
and "with dummy after drinking 500ml of milk".
You can easily imagine how tough to be in small venues and see MTH shows with these preconditions.

Please see the footage from some parts from 2 "Jigoku-ezu" events held
in August 2010 under preconditions of "with full-face helmet" and "pair with stocking on heads".

Please, never try this at any other shows!
It is dangerous and we are not responsible for any troubles by doing it!
This is the shocking sights of "Jigoku-ezu"!!


* Both image and sound were recorded with video cameras at venues.

To Harapeko (hungry to death) people! Happy New Year!!

Since November 2009, MTH had been taking a break from doing shows because of Nao's pregnancy.
And in May 2010, a healthy baby girl was born.
We got a lot of congratulatory mails from Harapeko fans.Thank you very much!

And 3 days after Nao's childbirth,
Maximum The Ryo-kun experienced excruciating pain of childbirth and delivered his urinary stone.

Nao started playing drums again only 2 weeks after the labor,
and the band went on "Enon -Enon- Tour" from August.
Nao recovered very quick as a primiparous mother and so MTH could restart doing shows quite early.

After that, they played Jigokuezu shows which they had to put off twice.
Also, they played at RISING SUN ROCK FESTIVAL which the band could not attend 2 years ago because of Maximum The Ryo-kun's flu.

As they had a good recharging period,all the members are in very good condition
but as their first priority was doing shows -which is the most important thing they do-,
we could not spend enough time to record for the new title by the end of 2010.

So, we are preparing to record and release MTH new title this year.
And of course, the band is doing a lot of shows after the release!
Thank you for your support and I hope you and us can stick together in the future.

We wish you another Menkata Kotteri (hard noodle and thick soup) year!!

All members from MTH and staff at Mimikajiru

To Harapeko (hungry to death) people! Happy New Year!!

Last year started with Daisuke-han's full return to life from vocal cord surgery!

In Spring, we visited many places in Japan as "Tsume Tsume Tsume post final" tour
which is totally unparalleled in history and all tickets sold out on the day of release!!

In Summer, Ryo-kun caught a super-flu which no one expected but one thing is for
sure that he really got caught up! In Fall, Nao announced her pregnancy with joy!!

So last year, MTH didn't release any album, but had a lot of events
.Even though these events caused a lot of problems to fans and people involved,
we got tons of messages saying "Bring it on! But not until you are ready!!".
So all the members and staff are very much encouraged to rise up again!!
Thank you very much!

As most of you already know, MTH is in it's hiatus because of Nao's pregnancy
but the band is working on to bear new children for our next title!
Thank you for your pastry. Correction.

patience.Our very best wishes for a Menkata Kotteri
(al dente ramen noodles in greasy soup)

27.May.2009

The event, SAKOKU -Enon- vol. 1 presented by MAXIMUM THE HORMONE ended today!
MTH invited two great international bands so the tour became something very
much condensed and exciting with these 3 bands. They toured 3 big cities in
Japan which are Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka.

These bands, BRING ME THE HORIZON and BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART showed
fantastic performances so these bands released us from SAKOKU -historical
isolation policy and period of Japan which ended long ago- state!!

Keep your eye on the next SAKOKU -Enon- event!



27.May.2009


↑Put your mouse pointer over this image.

"Tsume Tsume Tsume Travel Additional Final" Tour is over!!

After 3 months of break,
This tour started and spent more than 5 months to end for this "Additional Final" Tour.
And the last show was on April 30th at Hachiouji MATCH VOX.

Our first operation of name and ID check worked well because of your corporation.
And so they could finish this tour without any troubles.
MAXIMUM THE HORMONE will be pushing forward.
So we want to ask you for your continuous support!!



1.Jan.2009

Last year, MTH toured U.S. and Canada in March and that was the first tour outside Japan for us.
In July, "Tsume Tsume Tsume / 「F」" was released in Japan.
And the all the tickets for all the shows of the "Tsume Tsume Tsume"tour in Japan
were sold out in one day.

During the tour of 4 months term, MTH performed at Summer music festivals
throughout the nation (MTH became the most performed band at different
Summer music festivals in Japan), and also performed at the music festival in
Korea in August. After this tour in Japan, we got out of Japan and toured Europe.

And unexpectedly ,suddenly and unfortunately, we got to know Daisuke needs
some medical operation on his vocal chord.

When we look back this year, it is hard to believe that all these happened in a year.
It was a year which was rich, heavy and greasy. And talking of greasiness, 3 members
out of all 4 (and you know who they are) "qualified" as people with fatty livers as
the result of complete medical checkup! That means we are juicier than ever!

We are all here now because of YOU! (except about the fatty livers)
Thank you very much! All the members of MTH and all the staff will do our best.
We might be getting more greasy, but never get greedy.

In order to have more power to make more "Zawa Zawa (sound people buzzing)",
we will put it all on the line and in 2009, we will absolutely get unmeasurable!!
So we need your continuous support and opinions in the years to come.

We wish you an even better year just like a bowl of "Men-Kata Kotteri (al dente
noodle with rich and greasy soup)" ramen...

Maximum The Hormone



18.Nov.2008

We visited 4 countries in 17 days on this European tour.
And finally, it is over! We came back home safe to Japan!!
It was wonderful that you took everything out to us
and we took everything to you guys!! See you!!

from all the Maximum The Hormone members.

New Single CD
TSUME TSUME TSUME / "F"
released on 9.July.2008.
At this moment of their life, what they created was sadistic with all A-side single!
The former album "Bu-ikikaesu" sold more than 250,000 copies and keep selling even now. After the album, they released their DVD, "Deco vs. Deco" in March. It topped the domestic DVD sales weekly chart and sold almost 100,000 copies so far. No one can stop the momentum of this band, MAXIMUM THE HORMONE!!
After a year and 4 months from the release of the last album, "Bu-ikikaesu", they release this aggressive, offensive, but catchy and smart masterpieces in one single CD.
This single was number 2 for their first appearance in the national chart.
