About Momoiro Clover Z

An idol group with a hyperactive sound and a passion for breaking with convention, Momoiro Clover Z has become one of Japan’s most beloved pop outfits.

∙ Formed in 2008, Momoiro Clover—the Z wasn’t added until three years later—started out on the street, performing for passersby in Tokyo’s Yoyogi Park.
Battle and Romance, the group’s 2011 debut LP, spent 124 weeks on the Japanese charts, peaking at No. 2.
∙ In 2013, they performed at Yokohama’s Nissan Stadium (Japan’s largest at the time), and the following year they headlined Tokyo’s National Stadium—the first female group to do so.
∙ Fans of hard rock and heavy metal, Momoiro Clover Z have collaborated with Yngwie Malmsteen, former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman, and legendary rockers Kiss.
∙ Their color-coded costumes nod to Japanese anime and sci-fi, and they recorded theme music for such iconic franchises as Pokémon, Dragon Ball Z, and Sailor Moon.
∙ The group has appeared in several films, and after starring in 2015’s Maku ga Agaru, they were voted winners of the Japanese Film Academy Prize Popularity Award.
