LITE are a four-piece instrumental rock band formed in Japan in 2003. The band are known for their thrilling and emotional compositions, progressive, edgy riffs and complex rhythms. Their explosive live show and tireless touring in the US, Europe and Asia along with worldwide album releases have brought acclaim from all quarters.

The band are widely regarded as one of the most exciting to emerge from Japan in the last decade.
THE PHYSICS HOUSE BAND
They say that some are born old and stay that way for the rest of their lives. The Physics House Band may only be in their early 20’s, but they posses musical prowess way beyond their years. Take the psychedelic explorers of the 60’s, prog of the 70’s, tech metal of the 80’s, 90’s post-rock, all with the 21st century precision of math-rock and, well… you’re getting there.
Creating incredibly modern forward thinking compositions reminiscent of Jaga Jazzist and Yes, coupled with the technical tunefulness of The Mars Volta and Battles, The Physics House Band tear through boundaries to create a truly unique sound. Following the viral success of their debut video single ‘Titan’ early 2012, the Brighton 3 piece have been performing to an ever-growing fanatical audience, spreading quickly across the UK.
With anticipation building around their inaugural release, 2013 promises to be an exciting year for the musical physicians.
