On that date, the band will hold their last oneman live, 終宴~サクライツカ~ (shuuen~sakura itsuka~) at Takadanobaba AREA and finally cease activities.

The single came in five types, each one having the same song but a different comment track. Each type had the same cover art to make it impossible to visually tell which version is which. But on the plus side, they were all signed by the band! The single was live limited, so your chances to get it are gone... Yeah, I know, kind of late notice, but they didn't even announce it until the day of the live!

KISAKI announced some big news on his blog today. First, it seems that UNDER CODE is to have a new sub-label: HAUNTED HOUSE RECORDS. The label's first release will be a best album for the band FLESH FOR FLANKENSTEIN. I honestly don't know much about them; they're somewhat old, and the project of former ALUCARD vocalist 伊集院 明朗 (Ishuuin Meirou? Corrections welcome). They seem to be kind of a big deal though; KIYOHARU is to be the guest vocalist on some songs on the best album, and the cover of it was done by Rockin'JellyBean (who have done work for ROLLING STONES and other big names). Those who buy the album from the UNDER CODE NET SHOP will receive a special CD. The band's website for now is here. I'm not sure if they're to be something permanent like VAGERKE or if they're going to be like Deshabillz.

① So it looks like Lamina won't be disbanding. They will, however, be changing members at some point. Before that, they're releasing a full album to commemorate their current lineup. The album has 13 songs total, some of which are new (how many are new isn't being announced, but, knowing UNDER CODE, it could be one new song or something).

There's also an official privilege; those who buy both new singles at the same time will be eligible to receive a special DVD of some sort.

① (Both of these are kind of late updates, but that's the fun of being in school) Brand X has posted information for the final release of Anjyu'. Unsurprisingly, it's a best album (thus making Anjyu', what, the fourth UNDER CODE band to announce one recently?). As of right now, it seems that none of the tracks will be remastered or re-recorded, but there is a new track (or multiple new tracks?). It's also not really clear of the album will contain tracks only from their time as an UNDER CODE band or if it will also include songs released while they were with HOLIDAY. In any case, the album, entitled Anjyu' ベスト [Anjyu' BEST], will be released on 5/21, and will contain 12 songs for the price of 3,150 yen. (The product code is ANCD-001, for anyone who cares~)

① Earlier this month, KISAKI announced that he would be composing the first revival single for Deshabillz (a "legendary" group that had disbanded in 1998). Well, Brand X just listed the single (which means you can now pre-order it), and it's apparently being published with UNDER CODE. Although I doubt this means Deshabillz is part of the label, it's still pretty cool. Since it's an UNDER CODE release, information is below.

[Archived] KISAKI

Ok, I just had to delete the last post; it was already getting out of hand. Sorry about that. Here is a direct translation of KISAKI's situation. Please note that KISAKI has NOT been arrested, he has only been accused. And please, let's keep the comments fair. This post has potential to turn ugly, and I want to make sure it doesn't.

[Archived] News ⇔ ダリ

So uh, anyone up for a bit of translating? I was browsing KISAKI's blog, and found an entry titled 「ダリのメンバーとミーティング!?」 (Dari no MEMBER to MEETING!?) [Dari Member and Meeting!?]. Unfortunately, the title is all I can make out xD. It seems to have something to do with the reason for Shunsaku "leaving," and more information about their revival.
