Esprit D’Air has just announced their new tour dates, which will kick off on 17 February 2023 in Cardiff, and will lead the band onto a 7-date journey across the UK, ending with a private party in London on 25 February for their Patreon members only.

The award-winning band re-entered the Official Charts a few weeks ago following their successful
self-promoted tour of the UK in London, Newcastle, Glasgow, and Manchester.

Kai (Esprit D’Air) will be joined by session musicians Jan-Vincent Velazco (Pendragon, Gus G)
on drums, Takeshi Tokunaga (producer of BABYMETAL) on bass, and Yusuke Okamoto on
guitar.

Esprit D’Air’s most recent album, Oceans was released on 18 February. The album peaked in the
Official Charts at #8 in the Rock and Metal Albums Chart and #5 in Independent Albums
Breakers.

The album includes collaborations with members of the iconic gothic rock group The
Sisters of Mercy and Japanese metalcore band Crystal Lake, plus remixes by Heavygrinder, and
Shirobon.

The new album Oceans is receiving support and praise from Loudwire, Kerrang! Radio,
as well as from members of Cradle of Filth, The Sisters of Mercy, and The Birthday Massacre.

Reformed in 2016, Esprit D’Air is a Japanese electronic rock/metal solo project led by vocalist,
multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Kai.

In 2018, Esprit D’Air won ‘Best Metal Album’ at The Independent Music Awards in New York, for the release of their debut album, Constellations, judged by an esteemed panel featuring Slayer, Amy Lee (Evanescence), Sepultura & more.

Kai is not seeking a major record label but instead, follows a strong DIY ethos and produces
everything himself to be as self-sufficient as possible.

Consequently, they record and produce their own releases in their own home recording studio, and book and promote their own shows.

Kai adds:
“The Oceans album took almost four years to create. My laptop containing all of my
work-in-progress was stolen in 2019 and I had to start all over again from 2020.

In the past two years, I worked hard and collaborated with awesome people to finish the album and we
also have our fans to thank for crowdfunding it.

The 20-track album Oceans is out now on Apple Music, Spotify & hmv.
