It will be the young band's second time playing TV Asahi's Music Station – pretty much confirming they're 'Big In Japan'.
They'll have their chance to turn Europe's head when they represent Ireland at Eurosonic next January, but before that The Strypes will be picking up new fans in Asia once more.
Having already played TV Asahi's Music Station in April, the Cavan quartet have been asked over to Japan for a second time before the end of the year, a very rare feat for European bands.
They're only the third Universal UK act to have performed on the show, which generally reaches 15 million viewers, over the past eight years, following in the footsteps of James Morrison and U2.
