Hi people. have the following Undercode and Matina items for sale:
Hi, I am having a major visual kei sale at my sale journal, and I have several UNDER CODE items that some of you might be interested in! ♥CD/DVD:
ライ (RAI) and ユッキー (YUKKIE) announced their new project today: N@H (pronounced “NoaH”)
As you know, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) disbanded shortly after the death of vocalist 拓 (Taku) in December of last year (you can read the whole chronicle here). However, in the past few months, there have been a few developments with the ex-members of the band, which I thought I'd update you all on.
Hey guys! I've decided on a ~sudden contest~!
NEGA has just announced the details regarding its new maxi-single!
Last month, I mentioned that Megaromania would hold a special live to celebrate the release of their upcoming mini-album. At that live, Megaromania will play songs from the mini-album and will perform in a bunch of session bands. Those sessions have been announced today (except for their names, for some reason).
Hello everybody :)
Hey there guys :D
Edit: Since posting this morning, their details have been revealed! So first things first...
Ok, the contest to win a free WE LOVE UCP t-shirt is officially closed. Now it's up to you guys to look through the proposed tracklists and vote for your favorite one! Whoever gets the most votes wins! The poll will be closed by Wednesday.
I didn't had a change to save almost any of ClearVeil's blog pics before they deleted their ameba blogs, so does someone have some pics (and would be so friendly and share them)?
Ok, this is sort of convoluted, but stick with me: remember the new omnibus I posted about this morning? UNDER CODE just uploaded a flyer advertising it. I guess UCP is actually involved with the omnibus somehow (I thought it was just SHOXX), because there's an additional ad at the bottom of the flyer for the 関西制圧2010~2011 (Kansai Seiatsu 2010~2011) event.
UNDER CODE has begun announcing their yearly holiday lives~ First up is the 12th edition of the “session party” event series that features tons of sessions made up of UCP musicians. This time, it will take place on 2010-12-26 at OSAKA MUSE. The specific sessions haven't been announced yet, but they'll be revealed closer to the date.
Looks like UNDER CODE's resident session bands 水風船 (Mizufuusen) and ㈱ネガエンタープライゼス ((Kabu) NEGA ENTERPRISES) will be holding the ultimate showdown: the loser of this epic live battle may be forced to disband!
妃&関西貴族 (Kisaki & Kansai Kizoku), KISAKI's long-running session band, has announced their first live in years! The session band will be performing at a KERA fashion event. And this time it's comprised of Arc and ClearVeil members!
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) polaroids: you can now buy one-of-a-kind, signed polaroids of the members. Available types are a group photo, individual photos (except KANATA), and twoshots of RIKU with another member (except KANATA).
As promised, I finally got around to uploading those rehearsal DVDs for you guys. If you don't remember what I'm talking about, buying three UNDER CODE 7th anniversary lucky bags got you eight comment + rehearsal DVDs earlier in the year.
ClearVeil's guitarist りゅうと (Ryuuto) will be releasing a special session CD. The CD will be sold at ClearVeil's last four lives (2010-06-20, 2010-06-30, 2010-07-03, and 2010-07-04) and will be limited to 100 pressings. ClearVeil drummer 成華 (Naruka) will play drums and will sign the CD. Furthermore, picks will be inserted at random, and people who buy two copies will receive a special extra song.
Stop the presses, something totally unexpected has happened! A ClearVeil best album has been announced. I'm sure no one saw that coming. Seriously though, there is one surprise: they're not claiming that the tracks will be remastered.
ClearVeil is disbanding. They will be holding their last oneman tour, Termination, through June and July. The first oneman will take place on 2010-06-20 at 目黒鹿鳴館 (Meguro Rock May Kan). The second will take place on 2010-06-30 at 難波 (Nanba) ROCKETS. And finally, on 2010-07-04, ClearVeil will hold the third oneman of their tour at 名古屋 (Nagoya) E.L.L and will officially disband.
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・

Thanks to Brand X, we can now see the covers for ClearVeil's Black Velvet single. (Which came out today. Seriously UNDER CODE, why are we relying on Brand X for cover reveals? Update your OHP!) So check it out: A TYPE, B TYPE.
March will mark the 7th anniversary of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's formation. It's a huge milestone for the label, especially because that means it has officially outlasted Matina! To celebrate the anniversary, the label is making some very rare releases available via the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP, for a very limited time only!
① Sort of old news, but Phantasmagoria has announced a oneman for 2010-04-05 at 大阪 (Osaka) BIG CAT. The live is called Diamond Dust in Truth ~新たな約束~ (Diamond Dust in Truth ~Aratana Yakusoku~). Here's the catch though: it's a “60 Minute Limited Premium Live.” Tickets are being sold at the special price of 1,500 yen, and they're being sold exclusively through UNDER CODE's mobile site from 2010-01-20 through 2010-01-31 (after which they go on general sale).
① Various covers have been revealed on the OHP.
(Some of this is old news, so don't give me a hard time!)
So, uh, those new ClearVeil singles I mentioned? Apparently parts one and two of an 8 month concept single release campaign. That's 16 singles if they continue to be released in two types! I'm seriously surprised right now; UCP hasn't tried something like this since KISAKI's 12 month photobook campaign, which was ended prematurely. I really hope the boys can turn it out!
According to an ad in the new FOOL'S MATE, ClearVeil will release two singles in March and April. On 2010-03-17, Black Belvet [sic] will be released, and on 2010-04-21, White Satin will be released.
Details of 首都制圧 2009~2010 (Shuto Seiatsu 2009~2010), UNDER CODE's New Year countdown event, have been released. As previously stated, it will take place on 2009-12-31 through 2010-01-01 at 東京キネマ倶楽部 (Tokyo KINEMA Club). Special goods will be available at the live. The lineup is as follows:
晄 (Aki) (ex-Lamina, hurts, Mëbíus, AZALEA) injured his hand, and has been unable to recover in time to appear at 江坂制圧2009 5DAYS (Esaka Seiatsu 2009 5DAYS). Because of this, there have been changes to the bands he was to perform with:
I've been pretty lazy, so most of this “news” is somewhat old.
The UCP Homepage has updated some of the samples for the artist pages. Some are older and some are newer.
① KISAKI will be composing a song, ダークネス (DARKNESS), for the C type of Seven's first single, キラーチューン (KILLER TUNE). Seven is the latest random-ass project by ミチル (MICHIRU), owner of L∞p・Ash RECORDS, and is, for now, a collaboration with 真矢 (Shinya) of LUNA SEA.
Lots of news today~ Sorry for the flood of awesome.
① [From [KISAKI's blog](http://ameblo.jp/undercode-KISAKI)] A true final for UNDER CODE's 日本制圧2009 (Nihon Seiatsu 2009) tour has been announced. 日本制圧2009 -FINAL- (Nihon Seiatsu 2009 -FINAL-) will take place on 2009-04-22 at 大阪BIG CAT (Osaka BIG CAT), and will feature chariots, ネガ (NEGA), Arc, Dali, Megaromania, ClearVeil, SIVA, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), cocklobin, and a large session band. A DVD of three types will be distributed at the live. Each type will have the same label but different content, so that no one will know which type they have until they watch it.
It's nothing new I'm the bringer of news from Bands @id material regarding our favorite label, but this time it's a special treat!
Lots of updates! Let's start.
① [From Arc's blog] Arc has completed photography of their new outfits. The photoshoot seems to be a nice one (cool backdrop!), and the members themselves have some pretty nice gold-on-red costumes. You can see a small version here.
Heisei Ishin now has a brand new song on their UCP page called THE BUTTERFLY, which was previously SWIMMY.
Back from a week of car wrecks, I bear good news for Dali and ClearVeil fans! If you are a regular at http://tv.banz.jp/ , then you'll get a sneak peak at Dali's new PV for ITAMIWAKE, and ClearVeil's "the dropping sky"! Sadly there is no direct link for the previews -- it is just a commercial on the main page provided in the link above. You may have to wait through a few omnibus clips before you see it, but both look stellar.
① The UNDER CODE OHP was just updated with tons of cover art and tracklistings for upcoming releases. It's rare, but it's really nice when UCP updates with that stuff ahead of time (even a few of the updates made today are for releases that are already out). New cover art for Arc, brodiaea, E'm ~grief~, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), Lamina, SIVA, and ゾディア (ZODIA) can be seen at the new release page, tracklistings and other info are below.
① The UCP homepage was recently updated to include several new and changed soundbites for bands -- certainly a good way to get a sneak on the new releases coming up!
① As promised, details regarding the new UNDER CODE band have been released. The new band, as expected, is 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) and is comprised of at least two(?) members of Anjyu'. The band's concept is "SECOND CULTURE," whatever that means, and its lineup is as follows: 拓 (Taku) on vocals, YUKKIE (most likely ex-Anjyu') on guitar, JILL on guitar, 善 (Yoshi) (definitely ex-Anjyu') on bass, and ライ (Rai) on drums.
① Four new releases for ClearVeil have been announced. It's not really surprising, but it's definitely good news. They will be following the latest UNDER CODE trend of releasing a small live DVD with one of those releases. The number of tracks on each release isn't confirmed, but it's almost guaranteed to be three because of the price. (Now we just have to wait for chariots and SIVA to announce something new..)
① The UNDER CODE OHP was updated today. Anjyu' has formally been moved from the main page to the disbanded section.
① I'll get right to it. The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION OHP was updated this morning with additional details about several upcoming releases. The cover art of three CDs (by ClearVeil, chariots, and Dali) was posted along with some previously unannounced tracklistings/release information. Covers can be found at the new release page and the new information can be found below.
① The tracklistings for the upcoming UNDER CODE omnibus live DVD--High Style Paradox 5 ~NEW BORN "organization"~--and the first single of chariots' four month release campain--唯 [Yui]--have been added to the release page at the UNDER CODE OHP.
① Tons of releases were announced through Brand X today, some surprising and some not. Arc has a new look and is releasing something new, and there's a new volume of High Style Paradox, the first in over two years!. There are also a ton of new releases from chariots (I guess KISAKI wasn't lying when he said he was going to push them to the top!) and tracklistings to ClearVeil's upcoming CDs. Heeere you go:
