“The Eddie” from Ramen and a Half interviews Rookies is Punk’d at Fanimecon. ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D is a Japanese punk rock band from Shibuya, Japan, that was formed in 2005.
They’re very well known in their home country and have spread a niche of fans in cities of Asia countries and in the US. They’re hoping to go places and share what they have to offer to the music world.

This was an interview done last year. We apologize for the rough interview package because we had audio issues, but we decided to pull it out of the vault and put it together as best we can for the fans.

The majority of their Official Website ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D is in Japanese, but you can google them and find plenty of information.

They will also be at AnimeNEXT in June 6-8th, 2014. You can still Pre-Register.
