While the bulk of the Emo Revival happened in the United States through the 2000s and 2010s, Japan held their own renaissance. Leading the charge was Malegoat with their signature twinkly guitars, shouty vocals, and flashy drums. They shared the stage with the likes of Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate)and Braid on their respective Japan tours and even made their way to the US and toured with Algernon Cadwallader during their heyday.
"Plain Infiltration" was their first record, now available for the first time ever on vinyl and digitally on all streaming platforms. Co-released with Waterslide Records (Japan), Voice of the Unheard (France), and New Granada. Out 4/14/2023. Comes with digital download.
