chariots new single, 「Kisai」 + Gu. KAZ will depart from GENGAH

chariots new single, 「Kisai」 + Gu. KAZ will depart from GENGAH

After releasing their latest single Senkou just two months ago, chariots isn't slowing down - they've announced a new single, and this time, it looks like it's a nationwide release! 👍🏻

The single, called Kisai (忌際) will be released on July 13 for 2,700 yen. The three-track CD will also come with a DVD, which will have the PV for the titular song. The band have also updated their live schedule and even have some instores planned to commemorate the single's release. All of this is displayed on their latest flyer which reveals their fierce new look!


In other news, guitarist KAZ, who also performed alongside ex-TRIGGAH vocalist 壱-hajime- on his solo project GENGAH, will depart from said project on July 15, in view of chariots' lengthy schedule. His departure also happens to take place two days after the release of Kisai, and also when GENGAH will depart from their record label, DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE. KAZ first joined the project last September, but the fact that he will later leave in favor of chariots is no surprise; bassist Jin did the same when he left his previous band SHAPE SHIFTER to pursue his activities in the band.
