Envy (JP)

Since 1992, Envy have been a mainstay in Japan’s independent hardcore underground. While their sound has evolved over the years to incorporate post-rock and other melodic influences, at the heart they retain the intensity of screamo and hardcore, making them both one of the most influential and one of the most ‘outsider’ bands in the scene. With original vocalist Tetsuya Fukagawa back in the fold since 2018, Envy are back in full force.
