Work/life has been 💩💩💩 lately, so here's a roundup of stuff that I haven't posted (probably not “minor,” but I'm not making separate posts for all this shit!).

FOODED SEAL (フーデッドシール), new band of ex-CindyKate drummer Sami, has had some bad luck, despite only just forming!

Vior gloire successfully finished their 2 year anniversary and last live oneman, XOR vior ~2 Nenkan no Kansha wo Komete~ (XOR vior ~2年間の感謝を込めて~), the other day. It seems that the live was a success, with several fellow ex-UCP bandmates attending and several fans offering flowers to the band. ex-bassist RENA posted the setlist, and I've reposted it below:
CindyKate has announced their last goods which will be sold at their last oneman live on July 13th (tomorrow!). Check the list below:
The ex-members of Cu[be] had a gathering yesterday, so I thought it would be a good time to give an update on what they're doing!

Although it wasn't announced beforehand, it seems that シンディケイト (CindyKate) sold a special CD at bassist まぁや (Maaya)'s birthday event live. It featured a CindyKate cover (with vocals by Maaya), Maaya's first original song, and a special birthday comment. See below more information.
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION recently announced an additional event to its “RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS” live series, which celebrates its 9th anniversary.
シンディケイト (CindyKate) have announced the release of a new single! It's called デコトラの星☆ (DEKOTORA no Hoshi☆)—apparently DEKOTORA stands for “decorated truck” (why would the Japanese have a common term for this?)—and will be released on May 9th, in three types.
Hey everyone~! I am moving overseas in a couple of weeks and I have a lot of J-rock/Visual Kei magazines for sale. Among them, I have Cure Magazine Vol. 89 (February 2011) with CindyKate on the cover, and Cure Vol. 68 (May 2009) with chariots on the cover. If y'all are interested, please have a look over [here] at my journal! Thanks for looking~! :)
Ok, I didn't receive any more suggestions, so I'm going to call this the final plan.

Well, Kansai Seiatsu 2011~2012 is officially over, and it was incredible! For those of you who attended the live stream, I'm so glad I got to share that moment with you! For those of you who couldn't watch, I did my best to keep track of the setlists. So here are those, plus some mini reports. Enjoy! And let's hope that there will be more events like this in the future!
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced some special events to celebrate its 9th anniversary! The event series is called RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS.

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!)
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.
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.
An additional band will appear at UNDER CODE's New Year countdown event... 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN)! It has just been decided that LIN will play and do the honors of the countdown to 2012. I'm glad that they decided to appear after all!
Hey guys. I'm opening a group order from UNDER CODE OFFICIAL WEB SHOP.
The official web shop has just added some new goods!
Yay! UNDER CODE's annual Christmas and New Year events have been announced! First up is the 13th edition of UNDER CODE's semi-annual session night event.
シンディケイト (CindyKate) announced a special project this morning called 広げよう!おしんこの輪プロジェクト (Hirogeyou! Oshinko no rin PROJECT). [Oshinko seems to be the name that they've given their fans.] The project is massive, with many, many parts. So pay attention!
At today's (2011-09-15) live, シンディケイト (CindyKate) will sell a special unpublished, signed photoset. Seems the set won't be sold any other time, so if you happen to be there (who am I kidding?) buy it now!
Hey guys! I recently designed a WE LOVE UNDER CODE poster for myself, but I thought that some of you might like one too. So, take a look, and if you're interested, you can contact me to buy one!
Megaromania announced two special live projects this morning (I feel like they have the most going on, live wise, of all the UNDER CODE bands!). The first is a threeman called Dark profound thought Vol.2 (a sequel to their 2010 threeman with ALSDEAD and SaTaN).
Hello all~ ^-^
Official web shop group order
_Like many of you, I've been unable to post for the past days, so this post is late, and other posts meant for the community probably won't be made. Please follow @we_love_ucp for updates!_
Recording studio “bazooka studio” has a podcast series called radio-bazooka!!, which is hosted by D.J.maruta (KASE TATSUYA). Anyway, シンディケイト (CindyKate) vocalist ユーイ (YUUI) appeared in the latest volume, and you can listen to it by visiting the iTunes podcast page. At the very end of the podcast is a long preview of CindyKate's new single, so check it out!
The first set of bands has been announced for this year's SCUBER DIVE. A handful of UNDER CODE bands have already been confirmed, and I'm sure more will be when upcoming sets are announced.
Earlier this month, I made a post about the upcoming 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) summer festival. At that live, each member will hold a special session—those special sessions have just been revealed.
KISAKI just announced that Phantasmagoria tribute live will be held this year! This one, like last year's, will be held in conjunction with VISUNAVI, as part of their SUMMER Masquerade live series. As with previous tribute lives, the participating bands will play Phantasmagoria songs, and a everyone will get together at the end to play 神 歌 (Kamiuta).
Although details such as title haven't been revealed yet, シンディケイト (CindyKate) has announced a tour to celebrate the release of their upcoming single, 座☆銀のNAON (Za☆gin no NAON). Interestingly, it seems that the band will be the opening act for each show.
There's been a slight change to the song names of the upcoming シンディケイト (CindyKate) single.
The tracklisting for the new シンディケイト (CindyKate) single—座☆銀のNAON (Za☆gin no NAON)—has 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).
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.
If you recall, CindyKate had been planning a free oneman tour to take place throughout March and April, but postponed it due to the earthquake. As of today, the tour has officially been cancelled, to be replaced by a new one:
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.)
Anyone want to join an official web shop order that I'm placing?
These have already sold out, so forgive me, but I figured I should post about them for history's sake. The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION official web shop recently put up a few special, very limited items for sale. First, cheki featuring KISAKI and members of NEGA, members of CindyKate, VIDOLL's RAME, or Sadie's Mao. Only one was available of each, so they sold out almost immediately.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) has announced the release of OFFICIAL BOOTLEG DVD VOL:1, which will contain live footage. No specific release date has been decided (see below), but it is exclusively for order at the official web shop, and will ship out sometime late this month.
The twenty-date, free, oneman tour that シンディケイト (CindyKate) was to embark on as of 2011-03-11 has been postponed, due to damage from the recent earthquake. The following three dates are currently set to occur as scheduled, but they too may be subject to postponement:
Here's the current list of UNDER CODE live postponements/cancellations due to the recent earthquake:
The official web shop has added a few photosets for sale recently:
シンディケイト (CindyKate) has announced the session lineup for their 2011-03-21 special live. (If you recall, this is the 20-stop oneman tour “special night” live at which drummer 沙美 (Sami) will be playing each instrument throughout the event.)
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) 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.
The tracklist of the SHOXX × UNDER CODE PRODUCTION omnibus Explosion showcase has been revealed today. Unfortunately, it seems like most of the songs aren't new or rare... Oh well. The cover has been revealed as well, and you can see it here.
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:
Some big announcements for シンディケイト (CindyKate)! The biggest announcement is that, through the beginning of 2011, they'll be embarking on a 20-stop, nation-wide, free oneman tour!! And as a special addendum to the tour, they'll be holding a special night live on 2011-03-21. The title of the oneman tour suggests that they're holding it to see if they can sell 1,000 copies of their new CD, which brings us too...
It seems that シンディケイト (CindyKate) has decided to hold a little New Year present campaign!
UNDER CODE has revealed the participating session bands for the upcoming session night!
SHOXX has decided to release a new omnibus in February to promote the bands that are building a new visual kei scene. The omnibus will be comprised of two discs (some new songs, some “rare” songs), and will be mail-order only. Those who order early will receive a cheki of the band of their choice (“main side” bands only--see below), as well as a special certificate that they can bring to the supporting tour, for which they'll receive a special, unspecified present.
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.
I got bored last night, so I typed up and romanized the lyrics for the シンディケイト (CindyKate) song ミラーボールは無責任☆ (MIRRORBALL wa Musekinin ☆).
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.
Lately I've been thinking about which upcoming UNDER CODE releases I would buy if money weren't an issue. Aside from my go-to guys Dali, I'm really liking シンディケイト (CindyKate) and Synside. But I'm sure the taste among other UCP fans varies.
Last updated 2010-08-17The online shop section and shopping service section are now both online. The guide is generally complete!
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) polaroids: you can now buy one-of-a-kind, signed polaroids of the members. Available types are a group photo, individual photos (except KANATA), and twoshots of RIKU with another member (except KANATA).
I've upload what I could of the ループ開き-2010- (LOOP Hiraki -2010-) live that was streamed last night. The stream stopped during the 愛狂います。 (aicle.) performance, so sorry to those of you who wanted to see them, ν, or -OZ-. (Note: the stream stopped on the site itself, so no one has footage of those performances.)
Click here to watch the 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) live performance from 2010-06-18! It's thanks to a new streaming video site, Visu-a-Land.TV. They'll only be hosting the clip until 2010-07-31, so be sure to watch it now.
Lots of シンディケイト (CindyKate) news today, and some of it is really big. Looks like UNDER CODE's giving them a pretty major push on some fronts, and I'm totally happy with that!
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) 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.
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
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).
① Various covers have been revealed on the OHP.
Despite most of the news leaking early, it seems UNDER CODE has managed to keep a few surprises regarding シンディケイト (CindyKate).
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) 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!
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:
