One of Japan's first all female, visual kei rock bands, Exist Trace, will be performing at the anime and Japanese pop culture convention Tekkoshocon next year from March 21 - 25, 2012. They are said to be performing a live concert on Saturday, March 24th as well as attending a Q&A panel and an autograph session for fans.

The band consists of five members, vocalist Jyou, guitarists Omi and Miko, bass player Naoto and drummer, Mally.

Exist Trace has toured twice in Europe, hitting major cities like London, Berlin, Moscow, and Paris, performed at the 2009 V-ROCK FESTIVAL in Japan, and made their US debut at Sakura-Con in Seattle of 2011. Exist Trace is being presented by Monster, Inc. and
