As I revealed in October, KISAKI will be returning to Taipai with special guest Sui (ex-Megaromania) next year! Complete details (mostly) of the event have been released:
KISAKI will return to Taipei on 2014-01-11 for a special additional performance of his 20th anniversary celebration event series. C'est la vie ~REMAIN OF THE 20TH YEARS HISTORY~ Taiwanhen (台湾編) will be held at PIPE Live Music, and will feature KISAKI in a special band with ex-Megaromania vocalist Sui. (The full lineup of the special band is TBA, but my guess is that it's similar to SchwarzVrain!)
Several Taiwanese visual bands will appear at the event, as will ex-VAGERKE leader's new band GLARD. A special tour package for Japanese fans, which includes exclusive events and an exclusive novelty present, has been prepared. Furthermore, special presents will be distributed to attendees on the day of the event.
Lilith will embark on a mini-tour called Path of Fenice in celebration of their new single, Fenice. As part of the tour, they will hold their anniversary celebration 2nd oneman live, REVOLUTION FROM SHANGHAI, on 2013-12-21. Furthermore, they will serve as opening act at Royz overseas oneman, Red Desire 「LILIA」 in ASIA, on 2014-01-03.
FOODED SEAL (フーデッドシール), new band of ex-CindyKate drummer Sami, has had some bad luck, despite only just forming! In a post called “the bad luck band”, Sami has mentioned that he has suffered food poisoning, drummer Sayuki (さゆき) dropped his phone in water, and guitarist KaoL has broken his foot and can't perform with the band for at least a month!
Despite this, the band continues. They're currently holding meetings regarding their first costumes and release, with details expected to be announced sometime next week.
Couple of bits of info about Shugokusatsu (瞬獄殺), the continuous session band of ex-SUZAKU (朱) vocalist Itsuki (樹) and ex-Vior gloire bassist RENA:
Shugokusatsu will perform on 2013-12-24 at SHIBUYA-REX (guitarist and drummer TBA). ex-CindyKate (シンディケイト) band FOODED SEAL (フーデッドシール) will also play at that event.
Before that, Shugokusatsu will also perform on 2013-12-12 at Osaka (大阪) RUIDO, with ex-NEGA guitarist SAN and ex-Vior gloire drummer ARU (アル).
On 2013-10-24, Shugokusatsu performed with ex-NEGA guitarist SAN and ex-SUZAKU drummer Karen (火憐). They played MaGARU by SUZAKU, Niji by L'Arc~en~Ciel, AGITATOR by Vior gloire, and Kusarekoi by SUZAKU.
ex-SUZAKU band Envus will hold a one day revival on 2014-01-11 (further details TBA). 【V. HIDEKI (ex-SUZAKU Itsuki) / G. Haruka (MonoLog) / G. Kaoru (holyclock) / B. Kagari (ex-SUZAKU Kizuna)】
New Kansai-area indie label king zeebra seems to be owned by Itsuki.
