One of the ideas that originated our first ever crowd funding campaign was to be able to record a song with our friends from the Japanese band Bo-Peep. After touring and playing at Minami Wheel Festival in Osaka, we got together to record a new version of the song "Never Ready for a War" from our latest album.
The song has the participation of Mika Yoshimura on guitar and vocals. It was also mixed by Alvaro Alencar.
Check out the song on the links bellow!
Never Ready for a War:
ALL TOGETHER WITH CANJA RAVE IN JAPAN :)
Our last show in Japan was at Heaven's Door in Tokyo. We shared the stage with some amazing Japanese bands... a lot of good music and a lot of energy.
Many years later, we finally had the opportunity to play again with our favourite girls band BO-PEEP! We have played together at SXSW in Austin, Texas in 2009 and 2010.
The drum set goes besides Chris, to his right..
A lot of fun... as usual!
