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.
All three dates will feature 凛 -the end of the corruption world- (Lin) as a guest, along with bands from both labels. The first and last dates will also feature special one-day-limited session bands, while the middle date (which also serves as a celebration of HOLIDAY NAGOYA's 6th anniversary) will feature extra bands from additional labels.
Finally, some Cu[be] news—and it's sort of a deluge! First thing first, they have new costumes! Check them out here and here.
Second, the band is releasing a new maxi-single! It's called Twilight ST★R and will be released on 2011-09-07. No official web shop privilege announced yet.
To celebrate the release, the band will co-sponsor an event called Ripper Night with Jackman. After that, Cu[be] will hold their first oneman! The oneman will be held over two days, and those who attend both days (bring your ticket stub!) will receive a free memorial CD with a new song.
Twilight ST★R 2011-09-07; 1,575 yen; maxi-single CD; complete limited pressing 01. (Unannounced new song) 02. (Unannounced new song) 03. (Unannounced new song)
ロジカルシューター (LOGICAL SHOOTER) 2011-10-23; 0 yen; double-date-attendance-limited memorial CD ※ freely distributed to those who attend both October oneman dates 01. ロジカルシューター (LOGICAL SHOOTER)
Their new costumes look good huh? It seems that a bit more money was spent on them this time, which is good. Well anyway, I'm excited about their new single, but I doubt very many will get that live distributed CD—I fear we'll never hear it ;(
First of all, Megaromania's new look has finally been officially revealed! Check out photos here and here.
Second, the band has announced a oneman tour to celebrate the release of their mini-album. The tour is called kingdom the emergence, and will be held throughout September. At each stop on the tour, Megaromania will freely distribute a tribute single (as in, the band will cover someone else's song). Each live will have its own version of the single with a different song.
Megaromania Tribute Single -A Type- 2011-09-24; 0 yen; live-limited tribute single CD ※ distributed freely at 2011-09-24 oneman 01. (Unspecified tribute song A)
Megaromania Tribute Single -B Type- 2011-09-25; 0 yen; live-limited tribute single CD ※ distributed freely at 2011-09-25 oneman 01. (Unspecified tribute song B)
Megaromania Tribute Single -C Type- 2011-09-29; 0 yen; live-limited tribute single CD ※ distributed freely at 2011-09-29 oneman 01. (Unspecified tribute song C)
What do you think about the new costumes? I seriously LOVE them! First, they look like cool European pirates or something—still Megaromania-esque, but just different enough that they're not boring. But more importantly, this is like the first time I think all the members look good. Usually Megaromania has a problem with ill-fitting costumes or ugly-ass makeup/hair, but everyone seems to be good this time! (even Hyoga |D)
Also, this really made me laugh: it was a huge deal when Megaromania announced their big oneman at O-WEST, but now they've just announced another one as if its nothing! I guess that means ticket sales went well, ahahahah~
Lastly, WHY DO YOU KEEP RELEASING LIVE-LIMITED STUFF? This will make 5 CDs, arghhh.
First, to celebrate the release of their first full album, 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) has announced that they will hold two oneman lives at the end of the year. At those two lives, the band will sell a live-limited CD with a new song, Ambient Cosmo.
Second, as posted, the band's anniversary live, an epidemic of “OVERTURE” has been pushed back and turned into a oneman. 凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) has announced that they will release a full live DVD of this new oneman! The DVD will be sold only at lives and through the official web shop.
凛 -the end of corruption world- (Lin) -
Ambient Cosmo 2011-10-02; 1,000 yen; live-limited single CD; limited 500 pressings ※ sold only at oneman club tour 01. Ambient Cosmo
an epidemic of “OVERTURE” 2011-09-30; 4,830 yen; live DVD ※ sold only at lives and official web shop 01. (120 minutes of live footage from 2011-08-07 oneman)
Lastly, two new details about Lin's full album. First, the official web shop privilege will be an early release date (2011-08-25) and OFF SHOT DVD VOL:3, which was shot and edited by KISAKI this time (instead of the usual KANATA). And second, I made a mistake in the tracklisting yesterday: it's actually A.Hitlor., not just Hitlor.. Hopefully they fix their spelling error though.
Lots of good new today, it's awesome! But man, I wish this stuff would happen sooner somehow so we wouldn't have to wait excitedly.
Well anyway, the live DVD seems like a good value—around double the price of their bootleg live DVD, but with a looot more songs. And UCP live DVDs are usually in the 7,000 range, so~ Yeah, I want it! Also, I hope they decided to sell that limited CD in the web shop so we can get it too!
