One Ok Rock, stylized as ONE OK ROCK (pronounced in Japanese as "one o'clock"), is a Japanese rock band formed in Tokyo, Japan in 2005. The band currently consists of Takahiro Moriuchi (vocals), Toru Yamashita (guitar/leader), Ryota Kohama (bass),
and Tomoya Kanki (drums).
ONE OK ROCK has rapidly become one of the most popular Japanese rock bands due to its hugely successful concerts such as Nippon Budokan Live in 2010, Yokohama Stadium Live in 2014, and The Arena Tour in 2013 & 2015. Its continued success at various rock festivals and effective promotions using YouTube and SNS have made it possible for the group to expand its fan base. This has allowed the band to top the charts in Japan with its latest (and 7th) album, “35xxxv.”
In October it will be joining All Time Low, along with Sleeping with Sirens, on a U.S. tour. The band will also be kicking off its European tour in December. ONE OK ROCK will continue with its aim to be Japan’s first globally recognized band and should therefore have a significant impact on today’s younger generation and the Alternative music scene.
Last January 19, 2016 a sold-out first-ever show in the Philippines, MOA Arena, Pasay City Co-presented by PULP Live World and 28 Black, guitarist Toru Yamashita, basissist Ryota Kohama, drummer Tomoya Kanki and frontman Takahiro "Taka" Moriuchiare delivered their energized brand of alternative rock, post-hardcore and pop-punk to their J-Rock. ONE OK ROCK performed their hits "The Beginning," "Dreamer," "Heartache" and"Mighty Long Fall," among many others.
This coming January 29, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena—a spectacular show powered by PULP Live World. ONE OK ROCK are all set to make their long-awaited return to Manila. Taka, Toru, Ryota, and Tomoya are finally coming back to the Philippines for ONE OK ROCK AMBITIONS ASIA TOUR 2018 Live in Manila.
People who have seen the band in the flesh will agree with consensus that ONE OK ROCK are one of the best bands they’ve ever seen live—Taka remains in control of his voice all throughout while masterfully engaging their crowd; bassist Ryota and guitarist Toru can ramp it up onstage without botching their riffs; and drummer Tomoya keeps the rest of the band rocking hard without missing a beat. Witnessing the near-perfect execution of their over-the-top live performance is definitely something to look forward to upon ONE OK ROCK’s return to the Philippines.
