Keeping up with their collaborative habits, SHAPE SHIFTER is going to participate in another split single--this time with More entitled "In the Depth." . Like their previous shared releases, this CD will contain a song previously released by both bands featuring a vocalist swap. This time, however, there is one new song in which both bands participated in its recording.
SHAPE SHIFTER are releasing their first multi-type single this October, entitled 枯れた瞳 (Kareta hitomi).
After releasing their latest single [Senkou] just two months ago, chariots isn't slowing down - they've announced a new single, and this time, it looks like it's a nationwide release! 👍🏻
SHAPE SHIFTER gives an acoustic performance on the latest edition of Himitsu no CLOSET (秘密のクロヲゼット)!
In spite of their bassist seceding, SHAPE SHIFTER is moving ahead with activities and announced the release of their new single [鳥籠 (Torikago)].
Bassist Houjou Jin (北條 迅) will secede from SHAPE SHIFTER at their 2016-04-12 live at Takadanobaba (高田馬場) AREA. After that, the band intends to continue with the remaining 4 members.
Minor news roundup for 2015-12-23:
SHAPE SHIFTER announced the release of the new single, [感情雨 (Kanjouame)]! Like their first single, this CD will also be released in advanced before the official drop date at their show entitled "池袋月下雷鳴(Ikebukuro gekka raimei)." This concert will be held at Ikebukuro EDGE on February 18th.
SHAPE SHIFTER have revealed the trailer for their first single, [Raimei] :
「C」 SESSION, [the newest band of Riku] (ex-LIN, chariots, etc.) will be performing again (and have also uploaded their first promo picture~)! This time they'll be performing with ROCKSTAR RECORDS bands at Shinjuku Blaze on December 14.
Earlier on Twitter, SHAPE SHIFTER revealed not one, but TWO new artist pictures!
Related to the previous post, signed to Rockstar is a """new""" band DEVIL KITTY, fronted by the very sarcastic, and somewhat eccentric, Yuuga. As some of you may remember, back in the early 2000's (prior to the closing of Eternal) there was another band named DEVIL KITTY that Yuuga was in. While this band shares the same name, they are supposed to be considered two separate entities. Yuuga's also nabbed Majyu as the drummer for this band, so I'm interested to see how active SHAPE SHIFTER is with a part-time drummer.
LIN V. SUI and G. MIZALY will hold a session at Re;aL's sponsored event on 2015-09-25. The other members have not yet been announced. SUI will also participate in a session event on 2015-07-23 (which includes some ex-chariots and SHAPE SHIFTER members).
