Informed by Western bands like The Clash, Sex Pistols and The Ramones as well as The King himself, Elvis Presley, Be and Meana decided to form their own punk band whilst still in the first year of high school, and now, eight years later, they're about to embark on their very first UK tour.

The Tokyo-born sisters, joined by former classmate Chad on drums have earned a huge following with their break neck, infectious rock output (as heard in '誘惑の赤いキス' above) and since performing at Japan Expo Sud in France last year have seen their sprightly brand of J-rock find a legion of new fans across Europe.

Mutant Monster will be joined on their five dates in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and Brighton by fellow Tokyo punk aficionados Touch My Secret. Expect to experience the power of Japanese punk at full tilt. Check out the full tour details below:

Birmingham - Hare and Hounds, Monday 14th November

Cardiff - Buffalo Bar, Tuesday 15th November

Bristol - Exchange, Wednesday 16th November

London - Underworld Camden, Friday 18th November

Brighton - The Prince Albert, Saturday 19th November
