THE NOVEMBERS are a shoegaze-band from Japan. In the summer of 2001, Yusuke Kobayashi and Takamatsu Hirofumi met and started a band together the following year. That band disbanded in 2005 and that's when THE NOVEMBERS were born. Kobayashi and Takamatsu recruited Yoshiki Ryousuke as their drummer in August of 2005, before its current lineup solidified in October 2005 with the arrival of Matsumoto Kengo on guitar.
