SOFT BALLET is a Japanese industrial and synthpop band. The group has three members: - Maki Fujii, Ken Morioka, and Ryoichi Endo / ends. They have been recording since 1989, though they had a long span of inactivity from 1995 to 2002 while the members pursued solo projects. SOFT BALLET's sound is similar to late-'80s New Wave bands such as Depeche Mode. They are occasionally political; their album Love and Peace is largely a criticism of the United States' involvement in the Gulf War.
