Anime USA is happy to announce our first musical guest for 2011, BLOOD.

BLOOD, Japan's fore running visual goth experience, is set to debut their 4th incarnation to the American public at Anime USA this year. Coming fresh from their 3 year absence from the music scene, the band is ready to storm America with a brand new line-up for an east coast tour this fall, spearheaded by their appearance at Anime USA. At Anime USA, the band will be selling merchandise including their new single "Bathory", autographing all bought CD's, and conducting a fan Q&A panel. Anime USA will be at the Hyatt Regency in Chrystal City, VA from November 18-20.

About BLOOD: Initially formed in 2002 as a visual kei band, BLOOD became one of the most recognized Japanese goth bands around the world mid-way through the last decade. The band officially disbanded in early 2009, but after 3 years, has been resurrected with a brand new lineup and direction. Now entering their 4th incarnation, the band has set out to meld their visual origins with the goth/industrial styling that came to define them later in their career. On Jun 15th, the band released their comeback single "Bathory" as well as their first true promotional video in support of the single.
