UVERworld

A Japanese rock band known for their mixture of musical genres such as hard rock, electronic, and beat-boxing. UVERchan, the band’s mascot, is a fictional bear-bat like character, which appears on several of their covers. The five-member band known as UVERworld first formed in 2003, and were known as Sound Goku Road or, more popularly, “Sangoku Road.” The band originally consisted of seven members, and released a demo CD which ended up selling 3,000 copies. Unfortunately, one of the band members, the saxophonist Seika, left the group (the other was Hiko, who left after he married). After his departure, Ace∞trigger renamed himself TAKUYA∞ and the band renamed itself to UVERworld. (source: last.fm)
