BACK-ON to perform at Anime Friends, Sao Paolo, Brazil in July 2014!

As we count down to the release of “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)” on March 12th 2014, we have just seen exciting news from BACK-ON’S official Facebook that they will be performing at Anime Friends, an annual anime convention, in Sao Paolo, Brazil in July 2014!

The official news post on BACK-ON.com does not have much more information beyond a date: July 26th 2014.

This announcement has already been picked up by a Brazilian anime site: AnimePro as well.

It’s certainly a major milestone: this is the first time that BACK-ON will be performing in the southern hemisphere (from memory) and in Brazil of all places at such a well-known convention (estimated attendance in 2008 was 120,000, source: AnimeCons.com) – it will be a fantastic opportunity for the band to increase their exposure in a BRIC economy!

I am super excited and really hope we will hear from some Brazilian BACK-ON fans soon! :)
