Latest album and songs
Having released thirteen albums, HY can boast of an extensive repertoire, which relies on accessible pop and rock with flares of hip-hop and hard rock influences. After a well-deserved hiatus, the quintet has decided to come back and surprise their fans with their latest album Chance (2017). The compilation boasts the influence of BIGMAMA, with whom the band collaborated last year. With tropical good vibes and a Christmassy spirit, songs like "Anohino Mama" and "Arigatou", HY have proved yet again that they have more tricks up their sleeves. Bearing in mind that many of their concerts are sold out as soon as they're announced, we at StubHub encourage you to secure your entry and buy HY tickets while they're still available.
All about HY
This popular band was formed in Japan's Okinawa when five high school friends saw a future for the music they made together. Indeed, it was in 2000 that vocalist and guitarist Hideyuki Shinzato, drummer Shun Naka, bassist Shinsuke Kyoda, keyboard and vocalist Izumi Nakasone, and guitarist Yuhei Miyazato made a life decision that took them far, and chose the name of their hometown Higashio Yakena to form the initials HY.
HY started their musical career differently from other Japanese bands of the time, seeing as they gained popularity by busking the streets of their hometown. Amassing fans in no time, they released their very first album Departure (2001) independently, with it only being available in Okinawa, and were surprised to see how it sold out immediately. The band then jumped into the international spotlight when they played next to Linkin Park and appeared in a music festival in Paris in 2002. This led HY to sign up to the modest label Climax Entertainment and release their first studio album Street Story (2003). Topping the Japanese Oricon charts with songs like "Message", HY set up a high bar and have managed to surpass it with their latest albums. Want to see how the band has evolved?
