UVERworld is a Japanese fusion rock band consisting of five members all originating from Kusatsu, Shiga, Japan. They are signed to gr8! Records under the Sony music label. The band was formed in 2004 after the disbanding of Sangoku Road, a band that consisted of many of the same members. Though not the biggest sellers, the band has found immense success, managing to release all but two singles placing within the top 5 Oricon weekly charts and obtaining the top spot with their twelfth single, "Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi", the first opening to the second season of the anime Kidou Senshi Gundam 00. They have sold over three million records worldwide.
The name UVERworld is a term coined by the members of the band, combining the German word über with the English word world to form a phrase that means "crossing above the world". Before the band name was decided, their agent thought ○ ○ world and OVERunder would make suitable names for them. The band's official fanclub is called NEO SOUND WAVE and its members the NEO sound CREW.
Their 41st single, "Eye's Sentry", is released this week on March 6th.
