Today's interview comes from Envy, with whom I recently spoke on their final show in the States after their first tour here in four years. Tetsuya Fukagawa talks a bit about how local acts start up in Japan. For our users in other countries, how are your music scenes? How do they run, especially the D.I.Y. ones?

How would you feel to be able to only see your favorite band play every four years since they were not from your country? Hit the replies and get the discussion going.
News posts about Envy and their upcoming album, Recitation, have been receiving an overwhelmingly positive response from you over the past few weeks, so we figured we would take the next step. Thus, we have partnered up with Temporary Residence to bring you an exclusive stream of the entire album on the band's AP.net profile. The word "epic," though overused nowadays, would be the perfect way to describe the band. If you have never heard them, go check it out and see what all the hype is about. Let us know what you think of the album, and make sure to pre-order it as well. Enjoy.

This past Saturday, Envy on the Coast ran into some unexpected road conditions on their way to their first tour date with Hit The Lights in Columbus, Ohio and did not make it to the show on time. There were some very disappointed fans there that had driven from hours away. Thankfully, the show promoter decided to let the band play a special impromptu acoustic set in the kitchen of his apartment for the disappointed fans and they caught the special set all on tape, so check it out here.
