Fuji Rock Festival is a music festival in Niigata’s Naeba resort and is considered as the world’s top festival. Plenty of artists from different countries will also perform such as MUSE, Noel Gallagher and Foo Fighters.
The group’s agency Happy Robot said, “The band is actually working very hard to release its new album within this year and will be very active to fill in the 2-year gap”. THE KOXX had to stop its activities for 2 years since the members entered the military service.
