Matching post-hardcore guitar riffage with pop melodies, Japan’s One Ok Rock sort of sound like something that might have come out stateside in 2008. But that hasn’t stopped them from landing international tours and playing stadium shows back in Japan. Formed in 2005, the band has a sound that stays close to the Fall Out Boy/Underoath-ish end of the spectrum. While the music certainly isn’t anything new, the band manages to change it up just enough to keep things interesting. But seriously, if we told you these guys were on a summer sampler CD at Hot Topic in 2009, you’d probably believe us.
