The Music of NIA – New Improve Ansia
NIA, which stands for New Improve Ansia, is a vibrant visual-kei influenced band bringing an exciting and
incredibly diverse blend of j-rock, metalcore, industrial and nu metal to the international j-rock scene. NIA
calls their unique concept “laugh and rough” style.
NIA originated as the band “AUNCIA” in 2007, under the label Red List Entertainment: the same label as
DIO – Distraught Overlord. Before long, they joined Universal Music and enjoyed their first major release in
Japan. After taking a hiatus, the band returned under the name ANSIA in 2013, and finally became NIA —
New Improve Ansia — in November of 2015. To continue “connecting people,” the band decided to retain
the original name within the new identity. With renewed momentum, the band releases it’s first single,
“Prayer,” in February 2016.
Throughout the years, NIA’s band members have performed as actors is films and dramas, provided music
for multiple TV shows and movies, have worked as models for different brands and designers and have
produced with several famous Japanese artists.
