This is pretty cool: CELL (ex-La'Mule etc.) has released a digital single―despite being on hiatus―through cdbaby (this means that we can buy it super easily!). The digital single, for you..., costs $3.79 and features three-previously released songs, but remastered and with new English vocals! The songs selected are some of their best, so please check it out and support them.
LIN has announced that they will release a coupling CD with CELL!! The CD will be sold exclusively at the lives during the two bands' coupling tour, 「Infinite」 ~Gekishin no Toki~ (「Infinite」 ~激震の時~), which will begin in October.
Cure magazine, Tune in Tokyo, Nameless Group, and XENON shop have teamed up for an event called VK FEST in Los Angeles, California, in the USA. carat (カラット) vocalist Yuuji。 (ゆーじ。) and guitarist Nozomi (希) [ex-ClearVeil] will perform at the event, along with ANTI FEMINISM, vocalist Kon of CELL, and guitarist TOMO from THE RHEDORIC.
For those of you lucky enough to live nearby (and who are 21 years or older), here's the full info:
And here's the official press release (in English):
ex-ClearVeil members Nozomi, Amamiya Ryuuto, and Naruka are back with a new band! The new band is called カラット (CARAT), and it will officially start activities with its first sponsored event live on August 17th. (By the way, La'Mule × NightingeiL new band CELL will also be at the event, under the name 血と包带 (Chi to Houtai).)
V. ゆーじ。 (Yuuji。)
G. 希 (Nozomi, ex-ClearVeil)
G. 雨宫 流斗 (Amamiya Ryuuto, ex-ClearVeil)
B. シロ (SHIRO)
D. 成华 (Naruka, ex-ClearVeil)
Unfortunately, CARAT is not signed to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION, but I'm sure we'll all be keeping an eye on them anyway. What do you think? Are you excited to see [most of] ClearVeil back?
As you know, legendary 90s visual kei band La'Mule came back this year to officially disband. At their disbandment live, they distributed a flyer which suggested that La'Mule would be combining with NightingeiL (the modern band of La'Mule vocalist Kon) into a new band. Today, the lineup of this new band, CELL, has finally been revealed.
Now the mystery of the hour is: who are YUKI and MASATO? One would assume they're from NightingeiL, but no members of NightingeiL used those names. One would then assume they simply changed their names (from MUKUI and HAKUYA, respectively), but ex-NightingeiL drummer HAKUYA has already opened a new personal blog (using the same name), so that doesn't seem to be the case. It seems we'll have to wait to find the answer!
※ CELL is not affiliated with UNDER CODE; I'm posting this here because La'Mule belonged to the parent label of Matina, and so La'Mule's activities are relevant to this site.
