Pioneering Chinese Visual Kei Band Silver Ash Returns!
China’s first visual kei band, Silver Ash are making a comeback with the international release of their single Pretty but Evil. This single has been available in digital format since January 4 2013 but the band are set to internationally release a rewritten version in March 2013 followed by a Japanese language release.
Since their formation in 2000 in Beijing, China, Silver Ash have been pioneers of Chinese rock. Strongly influenced by Japanese visual kei, they gained a sizable fan base until sudden censorship in 2003 led to the cancellation of American tours. Not to be beaten, Silver Ash continued as an unsigned outfit, performing in China as special guests of honor for the famous visual kei bands La’Cryma Christi, Rice, and Gram∞Maria. Now, they are back. Silver Ash intends to become a fully international band and will offer songs in English, Chinese and Japanese.
Pretty but Evil is available on Bandcamp under Silver Ash. http://silverash.bandcamp.com.
