Here's a bunch of news that I've neglected to post:
Some time ago,
On February 27th, Shiki failed to appear at a rehearsal for the next day's live, and suddenly stopped replying to the other members' messages. After consulting Shiki's family, the band decided to say that he would be missing the February 28th live performance due to influenza.
On March 2nd, the band received word via Shiki's family that he would not appear at any of the band's other lives. Shiki is considered to have seceded as of that day.
Guitarist YUKKIE (ユッキー) acted as vocalist for the band's remaining lives.
Former Matina band
Also appearing were VAZM, which features ex-
A sticker was freely distributed to attendees.
Former Soleil band Vasalla (覇叉羅) will hold a one-day revival on May 27th!
Their live, Haou Gaisen ~Ezo Juurinhen~ (覇王凱旋~蝦夷蹂躙編~), will be held as part of sapporo mixed up night 2017 at Sapporo (札幌) Crazy Monkey.
Attendees who mention that they've come to see Vasalla will receive a DVD with unspecified live footage.
It's unclear if this is a one-day revival or something more permanent.
For April Fool's Day,

TAKE NO BREAK
The band will hold their first live, Demonstration~Rei~ (Demonstration~零~), on 2017-07-11 at Sendai (仙台) MACANA, and their second, Demonstration~Ichi~ (Demonstration~壱~), on 2017-07-14 at Shimokitazawa (下北沢) GARDEN.
They'll release a live-limited version of their first maxi-single (for which Tomo has participated in the composition of 2 songs) at the lives, with a mail-order-limited version released sometime later in the month.
TAKE NO BREAK seems to be signed to a new label called Forty-Three,inc. Their first look is a collaboration with
ugly fashion brand BACKBONE.
By the way, Tomo wanted to make sure everyone knows: it's not “Tomo (ex-12012)”!
