Plenty (stylized as plenty) is a Japanese indie rock band formed in Ibaraki, 2004. The band is currently signed to the Headphone Music Label.[1]

Background[edit]

Plenty was formed in 2004 in Ibaraki Prefecture by guitarist Fumiya Enuma, bassist Noriaki Nitta, drummer Hiroki Yoshioka, and a female schoolmate as the vocalist. However, the female schoolmate left the band upon graduating junior high school, leaving Enuma as the main vocalist.[1][2]

In 2008, the band relocated to Tokyo where drummer Yoshioka's parents' home became their main practice spot. In August, the band began performing in live houses and made their first public appearance at Rockin'On Inc.'s "Countdown Japan 08/09". Plenty debuted their first album "Haikei. Minasama" in October 2009 and held their first nationwide tour in January 2010.

On July 30, 2011 the band's drummer, Yoshioka, announced his withdrawal from Plenty.[3] In August 2014, new drummer Itta Nakamura joined the band as a formal member.

The band gets their name from a parfait shop in Chōshi, Chiba.[2]

In 2017 it was announced that they will embark on a one-man tour, titled "plenty Last Tour Aoki Hibi", starting in June. Following this, in September, they plan to disband officially.
