Band Class #7: EighteenApril

Band Class #7: EighteenApril



Welcome back to Band Class, a series where I aim to help international Korean music fans find their next favorite Korean band. Last time we met, JYP Entertainment's latest band, Xdinary Heroes

This week we'll meet EighteenApril. EighteenApril is a five-member band that formed in 2011. According to the members their name comes from a clothes shop that was close to two of the member's college dorms. They wanted to form a band with a cool name but struggled until they spotted the clothes store coming back from a night of drinking.

Beau is an underrated boy group and K-band enthusiast, and has been a K-music fan since 2015. You can find him on Twitter hyping his faves including their K-music ults Taewoon, Wonho, VOID and Daylotus as well as a few of their fave J-bands like Leetspeak Monsters and Grimoire. Beau spends his non K-music related free time learning about history, theology, true crime and playing whatever game catches his attention at the moment.
