BO-PEEP was formed in Fukuoka in 2000. They are known by their intense live shows and that brought them to the United Kingdom and the United States and caught attention by music magazines such as NME, i-D and Neo. The band performed at big music festivals around the world, including Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, The Great Escape and In the City in the United Kingdom, and SXSW in the United States. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Mika and drummer Ryoko. In 2015, the two decided to start their own label, B-P MUSIC, to support their band’s musical ventures. The album Thank You was the first release by this label. COLORS is the fifth album of the hand of BO-PEEP and is produced by Lee Popa (whose 30-year career includes Ministry, TOOL, Killing Joke) and Jolee Popa, the album was possible thanks to the support of the fans of the band by means of an international crowdfunding campaign. One of the songs on this album, LET IT DIE〜New day〜, got a music video.
