Lilith will disband

Chinese visual-kei band, Lilith, have announced that they will disband after their live at Shanghai Yuyintang on April 23.

Obviously, this is a big blow to the country's visual-kei scene, which was practically nonexistent when guitarist Lin first formed the band. However, bands like Scarlet Horizon are still around, so there's a plus. As Lin details in his blog, he says that member differences contributed to their decision to disband, which trace all the way back to last October. He also details how he was able to achieve his dream of forming a band in China, thus merging China and Japan together, and talks about his future as a musician. Luckily he doesn't plan to retire as he's obviously also part of Affective Synergy. 👌

PENTAGON new album announced!

PENTAGON will release their third full album, WANDERLUST, in two types on June 14!


The band has also announced an accompanying 47-stop nationwide tour, WANDER:LAST, starting on 2017-06-17 at Takadanobaba (高田馬場) AREA.

A men's only live will be held on 2017-06-18 at Takadanobaba (高田馬場) AREA, at which the members will greet attendees with “fighting spirit” at the entrance (I think), and will freely distribute a CD(?) tentatively titled Otokouta(Kari) (漢唄(仮)) {“men's song”}.

Guitarist Yutori (ゆとり) will hold his birthday live, 『YUTORI EXPO 2017 in NAGOYA』 ~Ano Hi Tobidashita kono Machi ga Tadashikatta~ (『YUTORI EXPO 2017 in NAGOYA』 ~あの日飛び出したこの街が正しかった~), though details are TBA.

Finally, a tour final and birthday celebration for bassist minpha (眠花) will be held on 2017-11-22 at Nippon Seinenkan (日本青年館).


PENTAGON will also release two live DVDs next month, but I'll make a separate post about that.

DEEP MORE DEEP #5 tracklist revealed!

The tracklist for the latest DEEP MORE DEEP omnibus has been revealed! Fortunately, the CD features new songs from each band!!

Lack-co. Releases New Music Video

Random Button-kei band Lack-co. has recently released the music video for their upcoming single, "粘着型クレイジーソルト入りクッキー." Unlike their previous featured tracks, this one is pretty...normal?

Many people were taken aback by Lack-co.'s previous single's abrupt musical shifts, as well as their exceedingly vibrant costumes, but it looks like for this installment the band is dialing it down a few notches and aren't rolling over the Mac counter at Sephora before a photo shoot (at least, for now).

How do you feel about this direction versus their original two releases?

As of 3/14, we still do not have previews of the other tracks on this single, so there very well may be a return of their signature genre-potpourri style. Lack-co.'s new single drops tomorrow.

MARCO new best-album, "Ana Futatsu" + release tour

As their latest single, Henjin Kikou, was released today, Marco also made a surprising announcement: a best-album, Ana Futatsu (穴二つ), is already in the works!

The compilation album, blantantly coined as "Two Holes" (gross), comes in two types: "Hannyaban" (般若盤)(type A) and "Okameban" (おかめ盤) (type B). What makes this even more surprising is that, not only will all their songs be featured (except Henjin Kikou of course), but will also feature their previous live-distributed releases and unreleased songs! Since this is a nationwide release, say goodbye to hunting down Marco ~rarez~ at the auctions (if you exclude their purchase privilege DVDs)!! 👍👍👍

As this came up literally in the middle of nowhere, let's hope that this is a sign of good things to come for Marco!! 🤞🤞🤞 Their new artist photo does look a lot more professional than usual after all!


In addition to the best-album's release, Marco will celebrate by sponsoring their twoman tour, 「螺旋二人羽織〜密室の業〜」 (Rasen Nininbaori 〜misshitsu no gō〜) for the remainder of June. The announced dates are displayed below:

  • 6/8 at Takadanobaba AREA (w/ Otomekokka (乙女国家), THE NOSTRADAMNZ, IGGY, Tsukiyo no Zaregoto (ツキ酔ノ戯レ言), & Kurenai ku some matta kioku (紅ク染マッタ記憶))
  • 6/15 at Sendai SPACE ZERO (bands tba)
  • 6/16 at Niigata club riverst (w/ DIE'LIZE)
  • 6/21 at Nagoya HOLIDAY NEXT (w/ UNDER FALL JUSTICE)
  • 6/22 at Osaka LIVE HOUSE D' (w/ HOLYCLOCK)
  • 6/25 at (tba)

On their tour final (6/25), the band will distribute a live-limited CD, Kinrandonsu (金襴緞子) to all visitors, and they will also have an important announcement...I hope it will be good. ;w;
