PIZZA OF DEATH RECORDS PIZZA OF DEATH RECORDS Tokyo the official PIZZA OF DEATH Sound Cloud Pizza Of Death Records is an independent record company established in 1999 by a guitarist Ken Yokoyama who used to be a member of Hi Standard. Our first release was Hi-Standard's 3rd full length album "Making The Road". This was also released outside of Japan through Fat Wreck Chords and has gone on to sell over one million copies in Japan alone. In mid 2000 Hi-Standard went on hiatus which provided Ken with opportunity to focus more intensely on running Pizza Of Death and to release other Japanese punk rock bands with various and unique styles. To date, Pizza Of Death has grown from it's humble beginnings to remain as the undisputed No.1 independent label in Japan. In 2002 Ken produced the debut Pizza Of Death release from Hawaiian6 (featuring the drummer of Ken's other band BBQ Chickens). Their clever and dark melodic sound was accepted with huge surprise and Hawaiian6 has now sold over 150, 000 copies to date in Japan alone. 2004 saw Ken release his long awaited and hugely succesful first solo album "The Cost Of My Freedom" and shortly after the inevitable formation of the touring powerhouse affectionately known as KEN BAND. We have not limited ourselves to just releasing only Japanese bands but have also released various non-Japanese acts such as the exclusive Japanese release "Turning Japanese" from Me First And The Gimme Gimmes. Other non-Japanese bands which have graced the Pizza Of Death imprint include Snuff (Yes ! Snuff !), Good Riddance, Venerea and Satanic Surfers. We have also gone on to gain surprising popularity and acceptance in the global community without international distribution, though our merch and unique logo has been spotted in the most surprising of places including a cameo in the 2003 Hollywood movie "Lost In Translation". As mentioned, we currently do not have distribution outside of Japan for our Japanese band's releases so the only way to get these, at the moment, is through the online punkrock store INTERPUNK. We really hope to see you guys at every tiny CD shop in every country very soon.
