SuG is a band whose bright visual style and innovative rock sound distinguishes them from other bands in the scene. The name “SuG” originates from the word “thug,” reflecting the band's unique style that no one can affect, and carries the connotation of a “bad friend”. Originally starting out as a visual kei band in 2006, the group has since evolved and broken free of all restraints, even including hip hop and funk elements into their music.

Vocalist Takeru takes charge of all aspects of the band including song writing, concept creation, music video direction, stage costume design and art work, and thus has been the backbone to the band’s success in the scene. Outside of band work, Takeru has created his own fashion brand “million $ orchestra”, and has won an award as a movie director for the film “WE CRY OUT HELLYEAH”, which clinched the first Artist Cinema Award at the 11th Yamagata International Movie Festival.
