Former Members


JIRO of the J-Rock band GLAY became a fan of the popular J-Rock band the pillows since their RUNNERS HIGH tour in 1999, and he soon established a friendship with Yamanaka Sawao, the lead guitarist and vocalist of the pillows. In 2001, Sawao and JIRO did a cover of a Nirvana song, and since then they had wanted to work on a project together. In 2004, JIRO participated in the recording of the pillows' 15th anniversary tribute album SYNCHRONIZED ROCKERS, where he met Nakayama Shinpei from STRAIGHTENER. JIRO saw his drumming style and thought his drumming skills were really good. Eventually JIRO and Sawao asked Shinpei if he wanted to form a band together, and he was very interested. The formation of the band was officially announced in print and on radio on May 14, 2005. THE PREDATORS founded their own label, three mountain records, and released their debut mini-album, Hunting!!!!.
