The award-winning Esprit D'Air returns to Scotland on 21st February 2023 to perform their chart-topping new album, Oceans, which feature collaborations with members from the iconic group The Sisters of Mercy and Japanese metalcore band Crystal Lake.

Reformed in 2016, Esprit D'Air is a Japanese electronic rock/metal solo project led by vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Kai.As featured on Billboard, HuffPost, Loudwire, BBC Radio, Kerrang! & Louder, their sound is unique and fresh, bringing together hard-hitting aggression with melodic vocals and electronic synthesizers.

In 2018, Esprit D'Air won Best Metal Album at The Independent Music Awards taking place at the prestigious Lincoln Center of Performing Arts in New York City, for the release of their debut album, Constellations, judged by an esteemed panel featuring Slayer, Amy Lee (Evanescence), Sepultura & more.

In 2019, Esprit D'Air was nominated Best Musical Act by NEO Magazine (sponsored by SEGA) finishing in the top five alongside the likes of Crossfaith, BAND-MAID, The GazettE and Mutant Monster.

In 2021, Esprit D'Air released their 10th Anniversary Live album and committed to releasing a new song every six weeks via their Patreon page.

In 2022, Esprit D'Air released their 2nd album Oceans, which entered four Official UK Charts, including #13 in the Top 40 Rock & Metal Albums, and #7 in Top 20 Independent Albums Breakers. The new album featured members of both The Sisters of Mercy, and Crystal Lake, as well as remixes by HEAVYGRINDER and Shirobon.

Kai is not seeking a major record label but instead, follows a strong DIY ethos and produces everything himself to be as self-sufficient as possible. Consequently, Kai records and produces his own releases in his own home recording studio.

Currently, Kai is the only official member of Esprit D'Air, and appoints session musicians for live shows and tours.
