ex-NEGA bassist/leader Ray appeared on the NICONICO internet radio show DANGAN・THE・DAN (ダンガン・ザ・ダン) to make a [mini] important announcement: he is now acting as producer for visual band PLACEBO (プラセボ)! This marks Ray's 2nd producing gig―he has been producing the band DECIDE since earlier this year.
PLACEBO is a two-piece indie visual kei band featuring V. rima and G. hina that formed in July of this year. On December 18th, they'll release their first mini-album, JAPANESE GOTHIC MARCHEN (ジャパニーズゴシックメルヘン). Photos of the band and samples from the mini-album are below:
