Japanese alt-rock band XANVALA proudly presented their second album “NIX” on March 29, 2023. XANVALA offers top-notch rock tracks that show the maturity and growth of the band over the last three years.
In contrast to their well-received first album “Tsuki to Taiyou” released one year ago; “NIX” is not about duality, but a new canvas for exploring their multi-dimensionality. From the art direction, music arrangements to the emotive voice work, there is a strong sense of elegance emanating from the album without compromising the excitement and edginess of rock music.
The 14 tracks album compiles digital singles like “NIX”, “joke”, “Que Será, Será”, among others; and includes new songs like the promotional “Meimei”.
After their successful 2022 Japanese tour “ASK”, the band embarked on a new tour titled “ANS” to end in the summer, expecting not only to meet regulars and newcomers in different cities across Japan, but also to conquer bigger and bigger venues each time, proving why XANVALA is one of the gems of the new generation of the Visual Kei scene.

XANVALA is a Japanese alt-rock / visual kei band that started activities in 2020. Their music features a heavy yet melodic sound, in conjunction with dynamic guitar riffs, electronic backings, and striking vocal lines. The band brings a combination of elements from different influences, without attaching to just one particular style. Under the concept of “messy things are beautiful” and the name XANVALA (pronounced as “zanbala”) carrying the meaning of “disheveled hair”, it goes without saying that headbanging is a must at concerts. XANAVALA’s intense rock has received a good response and attracted many listeners, fueling the spirits of the members to continue breaking into the scene with full determination.
