Although it's ahead of schedule, I'm happy to announce the WE LOVE UNDER CODE privilege sharing program!
So, recently, the webshop has a lot of updates, principally covers and tracklists, let's sum up all of these!
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION recently announced an additional event to its “RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS” live series, which celebrates its 9th anniversary.
RIKU and KANATA of 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) recently held their birthday events, and KISAKI will hold his soon—so what about poor REIYA?! He announced his own birthday event today, which will take place in April.
UNDER CODE is sponsoring an event for 兼継 (Kentz), ex drummer of 「あゃ」 (「Aya」) and chariots, as he retires from the music scene. (I mentioned this live in a [previous post], but full details have since been revealed.)
Ok, I didn't receive any more suggestions, so I'm going to call this the final plan.
Ok, I didn't receive any more suggestions, so I'm going to call this the final plan.
UNDER CODE has announced a “new band compilation CD” featuring 朱 (SUZAKU), Cu[be], and Vior gloire! The CD, NEXT INNOVATORS, will be released in April and will feature one new song from all three bands. The official web shop privilege is a signed cheki of a member of your choice (from any of the three participating bands).
1) REALies has just announced a new limited single. 2) I've discovered some distributed releases that REALies failed to mention online. 3) REALies has announced some new limited goods, which include more distributed releases. ~It's a limited/distributed release party!~
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.
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.
As you may have known, I announced a contest here for a free ticket to watch the Kansai Seiatsu live stream. The winner has been chosen by random number generator: Seraphim.
The winner of the free Kansai Seiatsu stream ticket is Seraphim!
As you know, UNDER CODE and EnTicket will do a live stream of Kansai Seiatsu 2011~2012. However, they will only stream the live if 37 more tickets are purchased! If that quota is not met, the stream will be cancelled...
i got some new flyer from the visual kei shops in Japan. i have still REALies, NEGA, Megaromania, Dali, spiv states, Kaiki!! Doubutsu AGITATOR, undercode countdown event, chariots, cindy kate, RIKU and KANATA birthday event.write if u need something more.
NEGA's new single, DELUGE, and REALies' new single, NEXT⇒, have been released in Japan!
Samples of upcoming NEGA and REALies singles have finally been uploaded at Amazon. The preview widgets won't embed for some reason, so you'll have to check the links manually: NEGA, REALies. (As usual, you can only buy if you live in the UK or Japan, and only after the release date.)
Covers that have been up for a while, but I hadn't gotten around to posting:
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.
From the official 朱 (SUZAKU) blog:_It's been a long time since the last update
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!
I come bearing a handful of updates about REALies! First of all, a CM for their upcoming single has been released! The covers of the upcoming single have been revealed as well, albeit in super tiny form. At any rate, this new flyer is much bigger.
REALies has just announced a 2012 five-city tour, although it's not yet clear whether all of these lives will be sponsored exclusively by the band. At any rate, they'll make another “important announcement” at the tour final in February, so be on the look out for that.
Hey guys. I'm opening a group order from UNDER CODE OFFICIAL WEB SHOP.
The official web shop has just added some new goods!
ライ (RAI) and ユッキー (YUKKIE) announced their new project today: N@H (pronounced “NoaH”)
REALies has a new look! Ch-ch-check it ⇒[!(http://under-code.occult-proposal.net/uploads/2011-09-30-REALies.jpg)](http://under-code.occult-proposal.net/uploads/2011-09-30-REALies.jpg)
Hello! I decided to type up and romanize the lyrics from REALies' first single, NuAGE. The lyrics aren't super inspiring or anything, but they're formatted in really cool ways, so I thought it would be fun to do. So, enjoy~
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.
REALies' new single, NEXT⇒, will be released in two types on November 30th. Both types will feature the same title and coupling tracks, but the A type will feature a PV while the B type will feature a third bonus track. As of now, the official web shop privilege is undecided, other than an early shipping date of November 24th.
REALies held their tour final last night, REALive Vol.3 「Stund UP!! NuAGE ~FINAL~」. If you're curious, bassist 明イ-akino- posted their setlist:
Cu[be] and Vior gloire have announced that they've co-produced a free live event! The event is called U・C・P BLACK BATTLE and will be held on 2011-09-18 at HOLIDAY OSAKA—but it will be limited to 250 attendees only!
UNDER CODE has just announced that it will host a Halloween party event this year. The event, 地下線マスカレイド (Chikasen /Masquerade/), will be held on October 29th and will feature a handful of label bands—all of which will play under pseudonyms (and, presumably, will dress to match). Additionally, some sort of “Halloween surprise” will occur at the end of the event.
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!
In my previous post about Vior gloire, I mentioned that they had sold special comment CD + polaroid sets at their first oneman live. Well, it seems that they had some left over, as limited quantities are now being sold through the official web shop!
Back in July, REALies announced their tour final, REALive Vol.3 「Stund UP!! NuAGE ~FINAL~」 (and my bad for not posting about it back then); today, full details about the event have been revealed.
Official web shop group order
KISAKI PROJECT feat.砂月 (Satsuki) has released details of its first live. It's a special event produced by KISAKI, “a marvelous gathering of bands who ruled the 90s visual scene.” Sounds awesome!
Vior gloire held their first oneman, 疑似カタストロフィー (Giji CATASTROPHE), at 心斎橋 (Shinsaibashi) FANJ-twice yesterday. Since I know we're all interested in them, I thought I'd share a few random details about the live:
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.!
REALies held their debut oneman yesterday, so I thought I'd do a little roundup post about it!
The official web shop just put a bunch of items up for sale. First, the photosets:
A new “UNDER CODE PRODUCTION BATTLE EVENT” series was announced today. Each event in the series will see UNDER CODE “battling” one of three fellow labels: DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE, Double River Record, and Planet CHILD Music.
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.
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).
An additional band has been added to the lineup of UNITED LINK for JAPAN VOL:2: リミット (LIMIT). Oh, and by the way, since I didn't mention it in the last post: this second volume is not free like the first event was.
It seems that the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION sponsored earthquake charity event, UNITED LINK for JAPAN, was a success, so they've decided to hold a second volume! This new event will be held in June at ESAKA MUSE, and several special acts will appear.
The new UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band has been announced: REALies!
Off topic 'cause this is more just bits of info for discussion~
