I've been too busy updating layout stuff to bother posting news m( )m. So here's the latest minor stuff:
ARLEQUIN is appearing in a shit-ton of media lately (including 4 as cover artist!!). Here's a list of all their stuff, plus some other recent appearances by other artists:
Here's some recent minor news:
Anime-theme-song cover band SPATS (スパッツ) has announced its second live. The “legendary” session band―comprised of V. Jin [HERO] / G. jun [ex-Phantasmagoria~GOTCHAROCKA] / G. Toki [Black Gene For the Next Scene] / B. HIIRO [ex-NEU] / D. TERO [ex-VIDOLL]―will hold its first oneman on 2015-05-12 at Takadanobaba AREA; due to that oneman selling out in minutes, a second oneman has been announced for 2015-10-14 at TSUTAYA O-WEST. If the second oneman doesn't sell at least 550 tickets, the group will disband.
Here's a preview of Black Gene For the Next Scene's Uragaeri (裏返り) PV―the first footage of the band since the joining of ex-NEGA guitarist SAN. I'm somewhat surprised that the guitars aren't emphasized at all in this portion of the song, but at least there's a tantalizing taste of a guitar solo from SAN at the end. What do you think?
Black Gene For the Next Scene has announced that ex-NEGA (and ex-the:Ø) guitarist SAN has officially joined! The band's first release with this new lineup is a 3 type maxi-single on 2015-04-22, Uragaeri (裏返り). The first live featuring SAN will be on 2015-03-01, and the group's oneman tour will start on 2015-04-29, with a tour final on 2015-07-11, at which an important announcement will be made and a new song will be freely distributed. Good luck BFN!
Here's a bunch of random news from the past weeks:
GOEMON RECORDS has announced its new, limited-time, medical-themed band, Call Me!
REALies has announced a September sponsored event tour called REVIVE YOUR HEARTS. Additionally, ZEALLINK Shinjuku and Sendai will have an exhibition of REALies' SETSUNA CANDLE (セツナキャンドル) costumes from 2014-06-03~08 and 2014-06-11~16, respectively.
On 2014-09-22, legendary visual kei hair & makeup house Tritt für Tritt will celebrate its 10th(!) anniversary with a huge modeling & live event in Ikebukuro (池袋). After teasing details for the past five months, Tritt für Tritt has finally announced the full lineup of participants in its event―and a plethora of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION musicians will appear!
As mentioned [last week], the second period of LIN (凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-) features SUI, MIZALY, and YUSHI of Megaromania plus CERO of zechs. Today, the band has been officially revealed, meaning we have a slew of releases and live details. Let's get to it!
UNDER CODE has announced a Valentine SPECIAL FAIR at the official web shop! What does that mean? Well, it means that special goods are on sale: namely, actual clothing from various UNDER CODE musicians!!
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 vocalist Taku had just died. After having, in my opinion, its worst year in 2010, UNDER CODE started 2011 in a low spot.
There are lots of little bits of news about last night's 輪・廻・転・生 ~A RETURN of “VISUAL MONSTER”~ (Rin・ne・ten・sei) event, and reports/pictures are just starting to pour in, so I thought I'd do a little roundup post. I'll add stuff as I find it (and feel free to add your own!)
UNDER CODE has announced two special birthday events for both RIKU and KANATA (vocalist and guitarist of LIN)! Both lives will feature special session bands and as-of-yet-unannounced special projects.
