End of the World
They’ve long been big in their native Japan, where they sold out the 72,000-seat Nissan Stadium in Yokohoma two nights in a row and have topped the Billboard Japan Hot 100 four times, with their singles “RPG,” “Snow Magic Fantasy,” “The Flame and Forest Carnival” and “SOS.”
Now, the quartet known as End of the World in the United States is looking to chart in America, with an English-language single, “One More Night.” The video for the song world premieres today exclusively on Billboard.
The four members -- Fukase, Nakajin, Saori and DJ Love -- first got together in Tokyo in 2005. They made their initial foray into the U.S. market last summer, with shows at the Roxy in Los Angeles and the Bowery Ballroom in New York. They returned to L.A. to record and film the video to “One More Night,” which features a cameo from DNCE.
They are known as Sekai No Owari in their homeland of Japan.
