Analogfish (アナログフィッシュ?, Anarogufisshu) is a Japanese rock band formed in 1999.

History[edit]

The band is probably best known to Western audiences for its song "Speed" which was featured as the 10th ending theme for the popular anime Naruto. All of the band members were born between 1978 and 1979. Akira and Kentarō were acquaintances in school and they regularly made music together, releasing a demo tape in 1999. They later moved to Tokyo where in April 2002 Shūichirō joined the band. Later in the year they released a new demo tape with 9 tracks. In June 2003 they released their first album, Sekai wa Maboroshi (世界は幻?, The World Vision) and in December of the same year they released their second album Nichiyōbi no Yoru Mitai da (日曜日の夜みたいだ?, Looks Like Sunday Night). During June 2004 the band released a self-titled album as well as re-releasing their first two albums. In July and August they took part in the Fuji Rock Festival and in September they released their first major album "Hello Hello Hello". To end the year, they started their first national tour, ending in December. Recently they have taken part in festivals such as the Rock in Japan Festival and the Nano-Mugen Festival in 2008.
