the HAITUS is an appropriately named “super-group” brought together by Takeshi Hosomi while this band, punk-rock group ELLEGARDEN, is on hiatus, and featuring members of some of the best talent in Japan.
The band has released a single album, in June 2009, entitled TRAsh We’d Love. The band plays an assortment of styles, ranging from piano rock, to punk rock, to garage rock, to soft rock, and emo, probably as a result of the wide-range of backgrounds of its members.
As the band is led by the English-speaking Takeshi Hosomi, all of their lyrics are sung in more-or-less perfect English.
