The band 'Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai' is a three-piece band formed in Japan in 2004.
While active within Japan under the kanji name '打首獄門同好会' (Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai),
representing Japanese culture, they operate internationally under the more easily pronounceable name 'GOKUMON.'

Featuring a mixed-gender lineup with a male guitar/vocalist and a female rhythm section,
the band is known for its unique style that combines a heavy sound with a 7-string guitar and 5-string bass.
This distinctive musical approach, coupled with laid-back lyrics infused with a sense of everyday life, has established a new genre known as 'Seikatsu Micchaku-gata Loud Rock' (Life-Immersed Loud Rock).

In their live performances, the band incorporates VJ (visual jockey) elements,
projecting visuals and lyrics on screens synchronized with the music.
This not only enhances the auditory experience but also provides a visually captivating aspect.

As they celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2024, the band is embarking on their first US tour, covering five cities.
Asuka Kawamoto(Dr/Vo)
Atsushi Osawa(Gt/Vo)

Lyrics are kinda non-fiction
All of the lyrics are written by Atsushi Osawa(Gt./Vo.)
who took part in Gokumon as a guitar vocal.
For the first time, he didn’t have any idea to write lyrics
then started making songs with feeling ‘Whatever’.
Every lyric based on Osawa's real-life such as the song
when he had pain with tooth his favorite snack,
song for his favorite snack and TV show.
That’s why Gokumon’s songs are the documentary works and non-fiction.
