The musical soulmates of local act DHDFD's is Nishinomiya City three-piece King Brothers. Earlier this year the two groups joined together in Japan for a bunch of shows, and now the King Bros are in New Zealand to kick off a summer tour with their Kiwi counterparts. We caught up with screaming guitarist Marya fresh off the plane to ask the quickest Seven Quick Questions ever...

Very difficult but I think the only thing in my life is rock n roll, so only thing I do. NISHINOMIYA!

No scene in Nishinomiya only King Brothers, but now I think maybe build little bit scene.
