    BAND-MAID® is a girls-rock band from Tokyo that formed in July 2013.

    The group's image is modelled on the outfits worn by Tokyo's Maid Café hostesses. In interviews, the band explains the concept came from founding member Miku who had previously worked at the NOODOL Cafe in Akihabara.

    On Promic TV today. Great live footage at Eggman and interview after their Seattle gig.

    (haha...Miku's twin tails in the interview after the rocking concert are a mess at 3:00)

    New interview on Dailymotion. Best one I've seen. Everyone talks quite a bit, even Misa.
    Discussions regarding their roots, band concept, how the band was formed (Miku contacted Kanami, she called Akane, she brought along Misa....they found Saiki..etc.), early days, their Major label debut, new album "Brand New Maid" and the different tracks from the album. Also included are clips from the new PV "Order".
