Hi everyone~ It's Piyuchan here wants to share with you sales blog ^^/
FUTURISM・BOYZ has finally made an official announcement regarding vocalist CO-: he has officially seceded from the band as of 2014-09-02.
The FUTURISM・BOYZ vs Dancing MOGA twoman was completed successfully, with attendance almost sold out, and renewed optimism among remaining members Shun (俊) and YUKIHIRO (ユキヒロ)! In addition to mentioning a few interesting details of F・BOYZ' activity until now (please check the [biography page]), Shun mentioned in a post that the duo has already planned more lives, due to the success of this one!
FUTURISM・BOYZ have suddenly announced a live! They will appear at 2013-10-27 event Heartful Live Vol,24 at Nara studio Sola.
The official web shop has re-released LAST FAIR DVDs 【A】~【E】 in its privilege bootleg live DVD campaign. This means that customers who spend 5,000 yen can now select their desired free DVD from the entire set (【A】~【J】) rather than just 【F】~【J】, as had been the restriction in previous months.
I updated my sales-journal with a lot of new stuff, mostly Undercode bands: http://noble-sympathia.livejournal.com/You- will find stuff from bands like 12012, Arc, FUTURIZM BOYZ, CindyKate (シンディケイト),- Cu[be], Syndrome, MIRAGE, LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-), Phantasmagoria and many more!!Please take a look here for CDs: Noble-Sympatha-CDsIf you are interested in photosets, cheki, photocards etc, follow this link: Photosets, cheki, etc
Here are some visual kei CDs and other items for sale. Originally, I was just cleaning out my personal collection, but I will start selling items for friends here in Tokyo as well, so the list will be updated every now and then. About 80 new items have been added, and there have been a few cancellations of orders, so I took the liberty of creating a new post.
Hi, I am having a major visual kei sale at my sale journal, and I have several UNDER CODE items that some of you might be interested in! ♥CD/DVD:
UNDER CODE entered 2011 in a bit of a transitory state. Megaromania was only half active, NEGA was on hiatus, E'm ~grief~ had just disbanded, Arc and Synside were set to disband, and HEISEI ISHIN (平成維新) vocalist Taku had just died. After having, in my opinion, its worst year in 2010, UNDER CODE started 2011 in a low spot.
I'm happy to announce that the WE LOVE UNDER CODE sponsored virtual live has officially been decided!! VIRTUAL SUPPRESSION will be held on November 19th (Saturday), streaming online worldwide through USTREAM.
My friend and I are selling two UC CDs!
At the UNDER CODE OHP, a sample from the upcoming FUTURISM・BOYZ mini-album has been uploaded. The sample is a medly of all songs from the mini, so you can get a real feel of the band's sound.
KISAKI has just posted a preview picture of a new band!! (As usual, it's a super small preview shot from the photography session, so don't expect to be able to identify much.) He said that he expects these newcomers to bring fresh air to UNDER CODE, but gave no other details—more will be revealed on August 1st.!
UNDER CODE has announced the shipping dates for most of the recent mail-order privileges.
As promised, I've gotten around to tallying the results from the 1st week of KING of UNDER CODE TRIVIA. It was pretty close, but there was a clear 1st week king. http://rikic"; !
Earlier this month, I made a post about the upcoming 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-)) summer festival. At that live, each member will hold a special session—those special sessions have just been revealed.
UNDER CODE has announced the release of a new omnibus live DVD—the first since early 2008! The footage was filmed at UNDER CODE's 8th anniversary live on 2011-03-10, and features all the bands that appeared at that live, with the exception of Synside and 妃&関西貴族 (KISAKI & Kansai Kizoku).
If you recall, the UNDER CODE sponsored charity live, UNITED LINK for JAPAN, had one more band to be revealed on March 24th.
So although it has already been released....(it was only on the undercode webshop I believe?) Well Arc's Byou Simulation is much easer for us to get hold of now! It's being released again (at the beginning of JUNE?!) on CD Japan!
PERESTROIKA's first mini-album, PAIИZ, is set to be released this Wednesday, 2011-04-20. If you haven't bought it yet, do it! But in the meantime, you can listen to previews of the entire mini at Amazon.
Ok, this is super late; as in, like 6 months late. I just managed to never post it somehow, so forgive me!
Arc has announced a special CD campaign for their last oneman tour, 以心伝心 (Ishindenshin). At each of the three stops on the tour, a special CD will be sold. Each CD will be limited to 50 copies, and will contain a new song, which has until now been “stored away,” written by a member of Arc.
It has been suddenly decided that Dali and Megaromania will hold a versus twoman in May. A special version of the long-running Chikasen TOP5 session band will also appear as a special guest. Finally, a new band (featuring ex-brodiaea guitarist KEI!) will appear as an opening act, and there will be a special large session at the end.
As promised, the second set of bands that will appear at UNITED LINK for JAPAN has been announced today. (For information on the event, please see the original post.)
Some time ago, 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-)) announced that they would hold a “1st anniversary festival;” details of the event have just recently been announced.
As part of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's earthquake charity campaign, UNITED LINK for JAPAN, two special items will be sold at the web shop, and all profits will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. The items will go on sale on 2011-04-15. (Anyone who buys these items will be eligible for a ticket to the UNITED LINK for JAPAN charity event on April 30th, although that doesn't really apply to us.)
As I mentioned earlier this month, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION announced a charity concert to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in Japan. Today, UCP revealed the first round of information regarding the event.
Although the details haven't been decided yet, UNDER CODE has announced that it will hold a charity event to benefit the earthquake victims! The event is called UNITED LINK for JAPAN, and will be held simultaneously at two live houses on 2011-04-30. The event will be free to enter, although there will presumably be a donation box. Again, no specifics have been decided, but from watching blogs, it seems that most of the UCP bands will be participating.
Here's the current list of UNDER CODE live postponements/cancellations due to the recent earthquake:
So they had their first revival live with Ayano! So I found some of the images! (I've been curious to see what Ayano is looking like now!) I'm just putting these up so they are all in one place and people don't have to blog trawl on the ever down Ameba >>
Earlier today KISAKI gave a little hint that 妃&関西貴族 (KISAKI & Kansai Kizoku) might return, and now the announcement is official: 妃&関西貴族 will make an appearance at both UNDER CODE PRODUCTION 8TH ANNIVERSARY「DYNAMITE EXPLOSION」 3/6 and 3/10 lives with slight changes in the cast.
I noticed that Cu[be]'s latest single is available for purchase through iTunes, so I thought I'd post about all the UNDER CODE stuff that's currently available there. Buying through iTunes is a much cheaper way to support the label, so please consider it next time you're on the edge about buying a release!
Sort of late posting this, but, uh, derp. For no reason at all, Megaromania and シンディケイト (CindyKate (シンディケイト)) have decided to hold a coupling live (they're calling it a “formation commemoration emergency special project”). The live will include both bands plus some “special projects” (collaboration talk, session bands, etc.).
Ok, the contest to win a free WE LOVE UCP t-shirt is officially closed. Now it's up to you guys to look through the proposed tracklists and vote for your favorite one! Whoever gets the most votes wins! The poll will be closed by Wednesday.
UNDER CODE has just announced its 8th anniversary (!) event, DYNAMITE EXPLOSION. The event will take place over three days: 2011-03-06, 03-08, and 03-10. The event seems pretty standard, aside from Lycaon participating, but there is one really cool thing about it...
At UNDER CODE's 2010-12-31 New Year event, several special goods were sold.
The official web shop has added a handful of recent photosets. Most are new/recent, but a few are older. Here's the full list:
UNDER CODE has just released the details of Arc's last releases: on 2011-04-13, they'll release both a 2 disc memorial best album and a memorial best DVD.
Arc has announced their final live events leading up to their last live. First up, they'll hold a 2 day sponsored event. After that, they'll hold a sponsored event marking their first and last &ldrquo;triumphant” return to Nara. And finally, their last oneman tour, which includes their last live on 2011-04-30. Details below.
According to unofficial sources, Arc's important announcement today was that they are disbanding in April. This hasn't been officially announced online yet, so no other details are available at this time.
The complete tracklist of Arc's omnibus, STAND UP SONIC, has been announced. So in the immortal words of Nicki Minaj, check it out:
It's that time of the year again~ UNDER CODE has announced the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP SPECIAL FAIR, which will take place from 2010-12-21 to 2011-03-31. I'm sure many cool goods will be for sale during the fair, but for now, only a few things have been announced:
Today KISAKI revealed the lineup of 妃&地下線オールスターズ (KISAKI & Chikasen ALL STARS), the special band that's set to appear at UNDER CODE's new year countdown event. (By the way, I think they were originally announced as the countdown band, but it seems NEGA's doing that now.)
Arc is taking over HOLIDAY OSAKA every Saturday in February! They've announced that they'll be holding weekly sponsored event series called SONIC LINK to celebrate the release of their omnibus STAND UP SONIC.
Some more details I've uncovered~
UNDER CODE has revealed the participating session bands for the upcoming session night!
Live photographs of several UNDER CODE bands are available for purchase through broma.jp and 7-Eleven. The photos seem to have been taken at the three day 漆黒のシンフォニー (Shikkoku no SYMPHONY) event at 埼玉会館ホール (Saitamakaikan HALL) in August.
This one's certainly out of the blue: Arc will be producing an omnibus CD to be released through UNDER CODE. The album is apparently supposed to “invigorate” the next generation bands or something. Cool! No word on whether any songs will be new, but here are the artists featured:
The cover of Arc's new maxi single, 秒シミュレーション (Byou SIMULATION), was revealed the other day. So here:
UNDER CODE has begun announcing their yearly holiday lives~ First up is the 12th edition of the “session party” event series that features tons of sessions made up of UCP musicians. This time, it will take place on 2010-12-26 at OSAKA MUSE. The specific sessions haven't been announced yet, but they'll be revealed closer to the date.
Looks like UNDER CODE's resident session bands 水風船 (Mizufuusen (水風船)) and ㈱ネガエンタープライゼス ((Kabu) NEGA ENTERPRISES) will be holding the ultimate showdown: the loser of this epic live battle may be forced to disband!
In addition to that live tour, chariots finally announced a new release. Like Arc's upcoming single, this one will be live and web shop limited, so it looks like you'll be using a shopping service if you want it! On the plus side, those who purchase from the web shop will receive a signed message DVD.
chariots (now RIKU's solo project, remember) announced its next sponsored event for 2010-11-07. This time, the support members will be... G: 悠 (Yuu, Ultimate Sonic); G: ASHITO; B: 憂里 (Yuuri, Cu[be]); and D: zodd (ex-ZODIA (ゾディア)).
Details of Arc's new single have been released. First of all, the single will only be sold at live shows and through the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP. Secondly, the release date has changed from 10/10 to 10/01. And finally, the tracklisting has been revealed.
妃&関西貴族 (Kisaki & Kansai Kizoku (妃&関西貴族)), KISAKI's long-running session band, has announced their first live in years! The session band will be performing at a KERA fashion event. And this time it's comprised of Arc and ClearVeil members!
Hello everyone! You may have noticed that I've been sort of bad about updates for the past few days... But finally I can reveal why: I've completely revamped the community!
As promised, I finally got around to uploading those rehearsal DVDs for you guys. If you don't remember what I'm talking about, buying three UNDER CODE 7th anniversary lucky bags got you eight comment + rehearsal DVDs earlier in the year.
UNDER CODE is sponsoring a really cool event. It's called 地下線ボーカリストシャッフル祭!? (Chikasen VOCALIST SHUFFLE Matsuri!?) and, well, that pretty much says it all. Several UCP bands will play, but with different vocalists: 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN (平成維新)) with 翠 (Sui); Megaromania with 儿 (Jin); NEGA with 苓 (Ren); Arc with 拓 (Taku); and Dali with KO-JI. The event is to take place on 2010-07-14 at OSAKA MUSE.
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-)) will hold a special event at TOWER RECORDS to commemorate the release of their first single. Those who reserve the single in store (phone orders and online orders aren't accepted) will receive a ticket to the event, which includes a mini-live and a handshake session. The event will take place on 2010-06-17 at TOWER RECORDS 渋谷 (Shibuya) STAGE ONE.
I just checked on Arcs blog today and the covers for the new Maxi single contrast are up!
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・

・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
A few more details have been released regarding those UCP 7th anniversary lucky bags I told you about.
March will mark the 7th anniversary of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's formation. It's a huge milestone for the label, especially because that means it has officially outlasted Matina! To celebrate the anniversary, the label is making some very rare releases available via the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP, for a very limited time only!
① music japan+, the web-based visual kei magazine, has formed a partnership with SHOXX. One of their first acts has been to post a full English translation of Phantasmagoria's interview in SHOXX Vol.206. The band talks about their new releases, their brief flirtation with major status, how they almost made a full revival, and more. It's surprisingly interesting! Phantasmagoria's interview from SHOXX Vol.206.
① Arc has a new picture up at the OHP. It's the same photoshoot, just a different picture... I guess they realized that the background in the first one had some wonky glare? Anyway, you check out the “new” picture here. (I have the old one saved if anyone's curious.)
① Sort of old news, but Phantasmagoria has announced a oneman for 2010-04-05 at 大阪 (Osaka) BIG CAT. The live is called Diamond Dust in Truth ~新たな約束~ (Diamond Dust in Truth ~Aratana Yakusoku~). Here's the catch though: it's a “60 Minute Limited Premium Live.” Tickets are being sold at the special price of 1,500 yen, and they're being sold exclusively through UNDER CODE's mobile site from 2010-01-20 through 2010-01-31 (after which they go on general sale).
I was browsing the OHP and discovered that UCP posted some flyers on the "Artist News" page for some of the bands~!
I'm getting rid of a lot of visual kei stuff that I didn't want, and this includes a bunch of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. But unlike most, I'm selling my stuff for good prices! No 10€ singles here, and every price is in USD so you guys can benefit from my currency's poor exchange rate :D! The relevant artists include:
(Some of this is old news, so don't give me a hard time!)
① I previously posted this here, but locked the entry since I wasn't 100% sure. But now I am! シンディケイト (CindyKate (シンディケイト)) is joining UNDER CODE PRODUCTION and already has a release planned. The band's section at the UCP OHP is here, and there's already a sample up!
I wasn't sure if I'm allowed to post any news since I'm not the admin but... thought to go for it anyway. So, just a while ago KISAKI posted an entry concerning Arc's new outfits in his blog. Basicly saying that they have been photoshooting them. The new outfits look like this:
① chariots officially changed their logo with the release of 光 (Hikari) back on 2009-10-07. (Definitely old news, but I needed to put it somewhere for future reference.)
① Several new music samples have been uploaded at the UNDER CODE OHP.
① More bands have been added to the 首都制圧 2009~2010 (Shuto Seiatsu 2009~2010) lineup: Hi:BRiD, 花少年バディーズ (Hana Shounen BADDIES), Jewel, and ケミカルピクチャーズ (CHEMICAL PICTURES)! See the previous post about the event for the full lineup.
Details of 首都制圧 2009~2010 (Shuto Seiatsu 2009~2010), UNDER CODE's New Year countdown event, have been released. As previously stated, it will take place on 2009-12-31 through 2010-01-01 at 東京キネマ倶楽部 (Tokyo KINEMA Club). Special goods will be available at the live. The lineup is as follows:
① Arc's new costumes were revealed yesterday through VISUNAVI. Check out the costumes here. The costumes look nice, and the photoshoot seems really good! (So weird to think that it's the same band who burst into UNDER CODE looking like a rainbow..)
① Arc was about due for a new release, so this shouldn't be a surprise~ On 2009-10-28, Arc will release a new maxi-single entitled -「Lady」&「Gentleman」- in two types. The OFFICIAL WEB SHOP privilege will be a DVD containing footage from Arc's 5th anniversary live, 1823日目の出逢 (1823 Hi Me no Deai), which was held on 2009-04-26 at OSAKA MUSE.
I've been pretty lazy, so most of this “news” is somewhat old.
The UCP Homepage has updated some of the samples for the artist pages. Some are older and some are newer.
Lots of news today~ Sorry for the flood of awesome.
Selling (54)/chariots/Heisei Isshin Mirror
① [From [KISAKI's blog](http://ameblo.jp/undercode-KISAKI)] A true final for UNDER CODE's 日本制圧2009 (Nihon Seiatsu 2009) tour has been announced. 日本制圧2009 -FINAL- (Nihon Seiatsu 2009 -FINAL-) will take place on 2009-04-22 at 大阪BIG CAT (Osaka BIG CAT), and will feature chariots, ネガ (NEGA), Arc, Dali, Megaromania, ClearVeil, SIVA, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN (平成維新)), cocklobin, and a large session band. A DVD of three types will be distributed at the live. Each type will have the same label but different content, so that no one will know which type they have until they watch it.
① It's been revealed that the 日本制圧2009 (Nihon Seiatsu 2009) tour final is actually several lives which are collectively called 渋谷制圧 5DAYS (Shibuya Seiatsu 5DAYS). Here's the complete schedule:
① [From UCP OHP] 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN (平成維新)) will be releasing a new single in two types in April. They're also holding a oneman, 平成people's liberation army (Heisei people's liberation army), at FANJ-twice on 2009-04-17, and a free special DVD will be distributed there. Also, their page at the OHP has been updated: a preview of the song 破片 (Kakera) has been uploaded, and their picture has been renewed (same costumes, different photoshoot).
It's nothing new I'm the bringer of news from Bands @id material regarding our favorite label, but this time it's a special treat!
Lots of updates! Let's start.
① [From Arc's blog] Arc has completed photography of their new outfits. The photoshoot seems to be a nice one (cool backdrop!), and the members themselves have some pretty nice gold-on-red costumes. You can see a small version here.
① [From the UNDER CODE OHP] More awesome news for ネガ (NEGA) fans: the band will be releasing two brand new singles next year. There are no types, every song is new, and the tracklistings are already announced. Pretty cool! There's also an official privilege; those who buy both new singles at the same time will be eligible to receive a special DVD of some sort. No details regarding the DVD have been given, but more information will be available in the packaging of the CD's themselves.
2008.9.01(月) -東京-SHIBUYA O-WEST
Heisei Ishin now has a brand new song on their UCP page called THE BUTTERFLY, which was previously SWIMMY.
① The UNDER CODE OHP was just updated with tons of cover art and tracklistings for upcoming releases. It's rare, but it's really nice when UCP updates with that stuff ahead of time (even a few of the updates made today are for releases that are already out). New cover art for Arc, brodiaea, E'm ~grief~, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN (平成維新)), Lamina, SIVA, and ゾディア (ZODIA (ゾディア)) can be seen at the new release page, tracklistings and other info are below.
① The UCP homepage was recently updated to include several new and changed soundbites for bands -- certainly a good way to get a sneak on the new releases coming up!
① As of May 8th, select UNDER CODE PRODUCTION music is available for purchase of iTunes. It's the first time that UCP has offered digital downloads and I highly recommend purchasing something if you are at all interested; strong support will probably encourage KISAKI to make more available, and it's a LOT cheaper and easier (the iTunes store takes credit cards as well as PayPal) than important CD's or even buying them in Japan. To make the deal a little sweeter, the offerings are iTunes Plus releases, which means that they are basically free of DRM and higher in quality without costing more than normal releases. It's pretty cool, very much worth the small price. Here's the info of what is currently available:
① Less than a month after announcing their formation and first three releases, Megaromania has added another upcoming release to their already full plate. As of right now, information regarding the release is only up at Jishuban Club, so it is possible that specific details may change when the details are officially announced. (Although the release's listing at Jishuban doesn't specifically mention being a mini album, it can be assumed by comparing the price of this release to Arc's latest mini album.)
I sell these two DVD because I need money to buy new...
① The tracklistings for the upcoming UNDER CODE omnibus live DVD--High Style Paradox 5 ~NEW BORN "organization"~--and the first single of chariots' four month release campain--唯 [Yui]--have been added to the release page at the UNDER CODE OHP.
Hi, I'm selling a bunch of stuff over at my journal. All items are in mint condition (brand new and unopened).
① Tons of releases were announced through Brand X today, some surprising and some not. Arc has a new look and is releasing something new, and there's a new volume of High Style Paradox, the first in over two years!. There are also a ton of new releases from chariots (I guess KISAKI wasn't lying when he said he was going to push them to the top!) and tracklistings to ClearVeil's upcoming CDs. Heeere you go:
Hi! Just a reminder that my [poster auction] will be ending in two days' time.
Hi~ I'm selling some stuff [at my LJ], including:
I'm selling some CDs that I got in Japan. Tell me if you're interested. All are still in their original plastic wrapper, never opened.
① I'll try to bang this one out quickly. Brand X just posted news of two new Phantasmagoria live DVDs. Both will be fairly huge and haven't been filmed yet! Information to follow.
I'm sorry to bother and I hope it's allowed to post such a thing here, but I want to ask , if somebody of you have pictures of this Arc costume -->
① It's safe to say that most of us have been expecting new UNDER CODE CDs for quite some time. So, it's not very surprising that a slew of upcoming releases have been announced today. Arc, hurts, KISAKI PROJECT (surprise!), ネガ (NEGA), and Pashya have all announced very cool things, including some second presses (apparently the first presses have sold extremely well; good job guys!). It's a bit weird that SIVA hasn't announced anything, but I'm sure we'll hear from them soon.
On Valentine's Day (surprise surprise), Bands@id and UNDER CODE will release a joint DVD. The fourth in a series, Bands Shock DVD Vol.4 ~日本制圧完全版~ [~Nihon Seiatsu Kanzen Ban~] will contain live clips from.. pretty much everyone. Included in the DVD are: Phantasmagoria, ヴィドール [VIDOLL], 12012, 秘密結社コドモA [Himitsu Kessha CODOMO A (秘密結社コドモA)], SIVA, Pashya, ダリ [Dali], Arc, hurts, ネガ [NEGA], VAGERKE, Deflina Ma'riage, 音鬼 [Oto Oni], SOUND OF SILENCE, and SERPENT. In similar news, the tracklisting for Decadence2007 has finally been announced.
I'm sure you're all already hurting for money, but get ready for your wallet to hurt even more :D UNDER CODE has added four more releases to its already sizeable list.
Well, I hope you all liked Arc. Their move to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION is now official! They've got a slew of releases planned, and are poised to have the biggest debut of any UNDER CODE band (including Phantasmagoria!). Anyways, here's the UNDER CODE news and updated release schedule:
Everyone knows that UNDER CODE has taken on three new bands this year, but apparently they aren't done. The borderline-oshare band Arc ~大人になりたくないコドモ達~ held a free one-man last night, where they apparently announced that they will be joining UNDER CODE. I wasn't at the live, and am going only on reports from other people, so don't take what I say to be 100% concrete.
