FREAKMAN. is the time-limited “side project” of DaizyStripper guitarist Nao (なお) and Neverland vocalist Ryota (涼太). (It was formed by Nao as part of his band's 10th anniversary project, decade, which has seen each member embark on solo activities.) Aside from the two permanent members, FREAKMAN. will also feature “Special Support Memembers,” which include Minpha (眠花) and RAI (ライ).
As a time-limited project, FREAKMAN. has already announced its full live schedule, including its activity pause live:
- 2016-10-20 at Ikebukuro (池袋) EDGE: first live and oneman, A NEW HOPE
- 2016-11-17 at Ikebukuro (池袋) EDGE: sponsored event, Force Wars vol.1
- 2016-12-06 at Shibuya (渋谷) REX: sponsored event, Force Wars vol.2
- 2017-01-16 at Shibuya (渋谷) TSUTAYA O-WEST: activity pause oneman, Tanso Reitou (炭素冷凍)
V. Ryota and G. Nao will participate in each live, as will Sp G. LiN [UNiTE.] and Sp B. Minpha (眠花) [PENTAGON (ペンタゴン)]. Sp D. RAI (ライ) [GIGAMOUS (ギガマウス)] will appear at the first two lives, but KAZI [FEST VAINQUEUR] will take his place at the last two.
The band will also release a CD in October (with no title or tracklist yet―I've always found that tacky 😒), but participating support members haven't been announced.
Notice all the STAR WARS references in their live titles? Kinda cute!
