ex-Cu[be] vocalist in progress?
ex-Cu[be] vocalist Lara (螺々) updated his blog after a long absence, and mentioned that he expects to become increasingly busy with session activities. He also mentions gradually working towards band activities, and asks us fans to wait a little bit longer. Although this is far from confirmation of a new band, let's hope that he is indeed working toward that!
ARLEQUIN formal activities started
ARLEQUIN formal activities started

GOEMON RECORDS' new band ARLEQUIN (featuring ex-Cu[be] and CindyKate members) has finally made their formal debut! They've revealed their first look, their band concept, their blogs, a new live tour, and several releases... seems they're moving ahead at full speed!

ARLEQUIN has announced their first single, a 2nd press of their demonstration CD, and a new distributed CD. Check the next post for details!

New band: ARLEQUIN
New band: ARLEQUIN

On August 5th, GOEMON RECORDS announced the second artist to join its label: new band ARLEQUIN (アルルカン)!! The band features ex-Cu[be] and ex-CindyKate members, along with the vocalist from Diverse glare in Riot, and others.

ARLEQUIN (アルルカン)
  • V. Aki (暁) (ex-Diverse glare in Riot)
  • G. Kuruto (來堵) (ex-Arpege)
  • G. Nao (奈緒) (ex-Cu[be])
  • B. Shouhei (祥平) (ex-CindyKate [as Maaya])
  • D. Damon(?) (堕門)

ARLEQUIN won't be completely “revealed” until October 26th (guess that explains the paper bags on the members' heads...), but, in the meantime, they will embark on their first tour, ARLHOLIC THEATRE (アルホリックテアトル). Their tour starts with their first live on 2013-10-02 at Sendai HooK, and ends on 2013-10-26 at Ikebukuro EDGE with their tour final twoman with a secret band (TBA on October 1st). Got it??

0 hour announcements
Just a heads up: July 1st at 0:00 JST (which will occur in a few hours), there will be a handful of announcements to look out for! N@H will be making an announcement, as will ex-Cu[be] vocalist Lara, and the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION official web shop will be revealing new privilege DVDs!

Unfortunately, I'll be at work at that time, so keep an eye out for updates a few hours later, hahaha.
ex-Cu[be] Nao sessions
ex-Cu[be] guitarist Nao (なお) will be participating in a few sessions:

  • 2013-07-31 at Shibuya REX Shout at the xxx vol.2 w/ basquiat
  • 2013-08-12 at Shibuya REX Exalted recipe vol.30 w/ KardiA
  • 2013-08-15 at Shibuya REX Exalted recipe vol.31 w/ CROSSFADE (クロスフェイド)
ex-Cu[be] updates
The ex-members of Cu[be] had a gathering yesterday, so I thought it would be a good time to give an update on what they're doing!

  • ex-vocalist 螺々 (Lara) does broadcasts every Friday at 22:00 JST through his Niconico channel (the contents are mostly talks about games though...). You can also follow him at his Twitter.
  • ex-guitarist 尚-nao- is currently performing in an ongoing session called BITE THE DUST 【V. Aki (Diverse glare in Riot) / G. kuruto (ex-Arpege) / G. nao (ex-Cu[be]) / D. TAMO (ex-Levia)】. They're currently playing at Shibuya REX about once a month.
    尚-nao- also recently played with a one-off session band called YUNASEA, which featured CindyKate vocalist YUUI and ex-VIDOLL guitarist SHUN, and covered LUNA SEA songs.

  • ex-guitarist 十夜 (Toya) is moving to Australia! (I'm not sure if it's for a study abroad program or something else.) The Cu[be] members' recent gathering was a farewell party for him.
  • ex-bassist 憂里-yuuri- participated in a one-day revival of his old band Secile 【V. DAINA (ex-PuppetMammy) / G. Maya (support) / B. yuuri (ex-Cu[be]) / D. Mirei (ex-JAGUAR)】. They appeared at the SUZAKU × Vior gloire co-sponsored event on 2013-05-25.

As far as I know, ex-drummer 亜月 (Atuki) hasn't done anything since leaving the band.
Cu[be] whole at last oneman

On the 24th, Cu[be] will hold their last oneman and disband. To end on a high note, the band has decided to appear once again with its full 5 member lineup for the last live!

Despite ex-drummer 亜月-athuki- being kicked out of the band for his unspecified misconduct―which also resulted in Cu[be] being kicked out of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION and disbanding―he has been allowed to return for the last live, so that Cu[be] can go out with its highest strength. The decision came with much deliberation and only after getting personal approval from KISAKI.

Cu[be] also announced a special sale of cheki at their last live. Individual cheki will cost 500 yen, and anyone who buys 3 at full price will receive 1 free. Furthermore, old and brand new cheki will be sold, and customers will be allowed to request specific ones for the same price.

Only 5 days until Cu[be] disbands!
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION memorial omnibus

UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced that, in collaboration with SHOXX, it will release its 10th anniversary memorial last omnibus, High Style Paradox 2003~2013. The mail-order-limited omnibus will be released in March, and will feature all significant bands (32 in total) signed to UNDER CODE PRODUCTION throughout its 10 years of activity.

Those who purchase the omnibus before February 28th will receive a special 24 month calendar.

Because the omnibus is mail-order-limited through SHOXX, it will not be available to overseas customers via usual means. However, I organize a group order as soon as I find a viable shopping service—expect a separate with details.

UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has announced its 10th anniversary last tour: Nihon Seiatsu FINAL -since 2003~2013- (日本制圧FINAL -since 2003~2013-). The tour will take place from March 1st through May 3rd, after which UNDER CODE will dismantle.

Cu[be] to disband

Cu[be] has announced that they will disband in February 2013.

( View the rest of this entry )

Only the latest casualty in the wreckage of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's closure, the news of Cu[be]'s disbandment is completely unsurprising—they were never able to attract a decent fanbase, making it impossible to support themselves after being kicked from the label earlier this year. Nevertheless, it's still a shame to lose a band who put out consistently solid music and live performances.

Cu[be] has three events remaining: they will appear at LIN guitarist KANATA's birthday event on January 13th, then the threeman with SUZAKU and Vior gloire on February 10th, and finally their last oneman on February 24th.

A few details about Cu[be]'s collection album
Cu[be] drummer 亜月-ATSUKI- has shared a few bits of info about his band's upcoming collection album:
  • Cu[be]'s latest flyer mistakenly states that the release date of [psycho/Ro]ckST★R is September 7th. The correct date is September 5th.
  • The deadline for the official web shop purchase privilege (a message DVD just for you and a cheki of the member of your choice) is August 25th. So hurry up if you want the official web shop privilege!
  • Cu[be] has decided on a special purchase privilege for the album. Those who purchase the album at the band's merchandise table (at live shows) will receive a “KARAOKE BATTLE DVD” and a cheki of the member of their choice.
  • All old song have [supposedly] been remastered.
  • The full tracklist of [psycho/Ro]ckST★R has been revealed! Check it out below. (The album is up at CDJapan now, and the link to that is below as well.)

TAKAFUMI's birthday sessions revealed

Last month, an event to celebrate the birthday of UNDER CODE staff member TAKAFUMI was announced. The session band lineup for the event has finally been announced, and it's incredible!

Which band would you most like to see? Personally, I'd love to hear YMD28 (seems very similar to ZODIA) or SUZACUBEGLOIRE.

Phantasmagoria tribute 2012

In 2007, UNDER CODE PRODUCTION sponsored a “Tribute to Phantasmagoria” tour at which all bands payed homage to Phantasmagoria. It has since become tradition for the label to host an annual “Tribute to Phantasmagoria” memorial live on the band's disbandment anniversary. And this tradition continues in 2012!

Cu[be] to release “complete album”
If you follow the WE LOVE UNDER twitter, you saw earlier this month that KISAKI mentioned Cu[be] releasing an album. The album has finally been announced, and as some of us suspected, it's a best album!

Cu[be]'s album is called [psycho/Ro]ckST★R and will be released in September. As expected, it contains all songs from both of the band's singles. However, it also contains all songs from the band's first mini-album, which was released before they joined UNDER CODE (and will no longer be sold after this month)! Furthermore, the album contains the band's rare distributed song LOGICAL SHOOTER, a new song called Split heroine days (probably their track on the NEXT INNOVATORS omnibus), and a second new song to be announced. All of this costs 3,150 yen.

Cu[be]'s new costumes

Cu[be]'s latest costumes have been revealed by UNDER CODE's official website. I have to say: they're not as bad as I thought! Check them out below and let me know what you think in the comments!

Cu[be] session event + release?!
I'm ashamed to admit it, but Cu[be] have a session event planned for May which I had yet to post about. So I'll do that now!

Cu[be] will hold a special event this May at HOLIDAY NAGOYA, in which each member will form his own session band for the day! Of special note are Yuuri's session band which will feature HINA (ex-vocalist of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band hurts!), and Athuki's session which is actually a one day revival of his previous band, Minerva. (Also note that the full lineups of certain sessions have not been decided yet.)

Also, KISAKI posted a preview image of Cu[be]'s new costumes today! Check them out below and let me know what you think (are you as unimpressed as I am?).

In the same post, KISAKI mentioned that Cu[be] will release an album(?!) this summer. They're a small band so a full album seems unlikely—mini-album or best album, perhaps? At any rate, KISAKI also said that 2012 will be a decisive year for the band, so if you want them to last... you had better buy that album, whatever it is!!
Official web shop photoset blitz
The official web shop has added a handful of the newest photosets:
UNDER CODE has announced a “new band compilation CD” featuring 朱 (SUZAKU), Cu[be], and Vior gloire! The CD, NEXT INNOVATORS, will be released in April and will feature one new song from all three bands. The official web shop privilege is a signed cheki of a member of your choice (from any of the three participating bands).

[Archived] Cu[be] birthday event
Cu[be] has announced an addition to their Radical party event series: a double birthday event for vocalist 螺々 (Rara) and drummer 亜月 (Athuki).

By the way, if you're like me, you've been waiting to buy the MP3 version of their latest single through Amazon MP3. Well, I have a small update: it seems that the single will finally be available on September 28th, but only at Amazon JP :(

And maybe I'm mistaken, but I could have sworn that there was another Cu[be] release at Amazon MP3 that has since disappeared. And I think the same is true for a few other UNDER CODE releases... I don't know what's going on!

[Archived] Twilight ST★R shipped
If you pre-ordered Cu[be]'s new single, Twilight ST★R, from the official web shop, then your copy has been shipped out today. Furthermore, they finally announced the privilege (a little late huh?): an offshot photo of the member of your choice.


Did any of you order the single?

I've been planning to, but now that I know the privilege is kind of lame (was hoping for a live DVD), I'm not sure... At any rate, the MP3s still aren't for sale at Amazon MP3, so it seems that I might have to resort to Brand X or something~

[Archived] Cu[be] and Vior gloire free event
Cu[be] and Vior gloire have announced that they've co-produced a free live event! The event is called U・C・P BLACK BATTLE and will be held on 2011-09-18 at HOLIDAY OSAKA—but it will be limited to 250 attendees only!

A secret guest called リアルライス (RIARURAISU) will appear at the event; this would presumably mean REALies, but the katakana version of their name is actually リアライズ (RIARAIZU)... So REALies might be appearing, but it could also be a different entity entirely (perhaps a session version of the band?). At any rate, here's the full lineup:

Cu[be], Vior gloire, Dali (guest), リアルライス (RIARURAISU) (secret guest), (large session), (surprise guests)


Glad to see these bands being active, Cu[be] especially. Now we just need SUZAKU to start doing stuff again... I really hope they get their act together ;(!

[Archived] Cu[be] cover and samples
The UNDER CODE OHP has been updated with a sample from Cu[be]'s upcoming maxi-single, Twilight ST★R. The medley can be heard below:

Additionally, Cu[be]'s personal OHP has been updated with the cover art for the single, and has confirmed the tracklisting that I tentatively posted earlier this month (Twilight ST★R / Colorless Device / the last wedding.). Here's the cover (click to enlarge):


I was pleasantly surprised to find that the single doesn't sound very pop-ish like I thought it would. And I absolutely love the cover! But what about you, what do you think? Has this convinced you to buy the single (or at least a digital version)?

[Archived] Cu[be] tracklisting
KISAKI posted this shot from the designing of the cover for Cu[be]'s upcoming single.

Wellll~ Although the shot is too small to read directly, I can tell that it's the back cover and that those strings of text are probably song names. Comparing them to known unreleased Cu[be] songs, I'm fairly confident that I have the tracklisting! So here it is (but remember that I could be wrong):

2011-09-07; 1,575 yen; maxi-single CD; UCCD-298

As I mentioned in a previous post, they have another unreleased song, ロジカルシューター (LOGICAL SHOOTER), but that will be distributed to those who attend both days of the band's [box in the Schrödinger] oneman. However, they have another unreleased song called chain memory—I wonder if that will ever see the light of day...


So what do you think? Those titles seem to match up right? At any rate, I'm excited—as long as the light-sounding title doesn't indicate a sudden change of musical style. But what about you guys, are any of you planning to buy Cu[be]'s new single?

[Archived] Cu[be] new single, dist CD, oneman, tour, costumes
Finally, some Cu[be] news—and it's sort of a deluge! First thing first, they have new costumes! Check them out here and here.

Second, the band is releasing a new maxi-single! It's called Twilight ST★R and will be released on 2011-09-07. No official web shop privilege announced yet.

To celebrate the release, the band will co-sponsor an event called Ripper Night with Jackman. After that, Cu[be] will hold their first oneman! The oneman will be held over two days, and those who attend both days (bring your ticket stub!) will receive a free memorial CD with a new song.

[Archived] Cu[be] privilege announced
Just a quick update on Cu[be]'s first UCP single: the official web shop privilege will be a message + live DVD, recorded at their 2010-12-28 event.

Anyone definitely buying their single from the web shop?

[Archived] Upload: Cu[be] - Velvet Berry
Upload time! I'm uploading this since it isn't available in regular shops and most people can't get it. However, copies are still available; just direct your shopping service to this page. Since their upcoming UCP CD will be available everywhere, that one definitely won't be posted here!

Anyway, this is Cu[be]'s first maxi-single, released independently on 2010-07-19. And it's pretty good! Of the three new songs, 償いは自決にて・・・ is my favorite. But the others are good as well. They even remastered/rerecorded a bit of 閃光プロローグ, and it sounds much better now! So yeah, overall, a very good release. It shows lots of improvement from their first demo single, even though there were only five months in between. I'm more excited for their UCP debut now!

Like last time, this is my rip (320 kbps mp3), so please don't spread it around! It's just a treat for you guys, and I'll be loath to upload more stuff if it's suddenly everywhere. Anyway, more importantly, what do you think? Sound off in the poll or in the comments!


Just a reminder about uploads at this community: anything's fine, as long as it's not readily available. Example: uploading every new release = bad, but uploading live distributed stuff = good. If you have questions, feel free to contact me!

[Archived] Cu[be] official page
The page of Cu[be] has been added to the OHP!

You can check out their individual pictures and profile information right here.

And to finish on a "amusing" note worthy from UCP, when you click on their "discography" it leads to the one of Synside instead :)

[Edit] I just noticed that it's the same with the "website"... Except this time it's Synside's OHP.

[Archived] Upload: Cu[be] - Senkou PROLOGUE
Since so many of you haven't heard anything by Cu[be], I decided to upload their live distributed debut CD just for you guys!

This CD was freely distributed at the band's 2010-02-13 live, but I was able to order it directly from them (sorry--it's sold out now). In addition to this CD, they released another called Velvet Berry on 2010-07-19. Unfortunately, that one didn't have a national release, and I wasn't able to get it! Maybe someone will share it in the future~

This is my rip (320 kbps mp3, for the interested!), so please keep it among yourselves, even though there's another rip floating around. More importantly, please listen and sound off! What do you think of Cu[be]'s first song?


And by the way, a note about uploads: they're fine in this community, as long as it's something that's not readily available. For example: uploading every new single = not ok; uploading rare live DVD = ok! So feel free to post if you have something cool!

[Archived] Cu[be] joins UNDER CODE! + first release

As of October 1st, Cu[be] has officially joined UNDER CODE PRODUCTION!

Vocals: 螺々 (Lara; ex-ジャガー (JAGUAR))
Guitar: 十夜 (Toya)
Guitar: (Nao; ex-Shelley)
Bass: 憂里 (Yuuri; ex-chariots)
Drums: 亜月 (Aduki; ex-ブレア (BUREA))

For those who don't know, Cu[be] is the new band of ex-chariots bassist 憂里 (Yuuri). They formed in December '09 and have already independently released two CDs. KISAKI said today that, although they are raw and underdeveloped, he recognizes definite potential in them. He hopes that we'll all cheer Cu[be] on and help them reach their potential!

They already have a release planned, and, excitingly, it will be their first release on a national scale! Thanks UCP! And, of course, they already have an event announced to go with it. Details of both are behind the cut:

Personally, I'd rather have some new bands, but I'm happy to see Cu[be] join! They're not bad at all, and they've always seemed like they would fit in at UCP. What do you guys think of the new addition?

[Archived] Mass Update Part ③
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
—Blood-red Final Chapter—

(Rin) updates!
  • Yesterday, KISAKI posted a sneak peek of his outfit. Today, he changed the picture, so it now gives a glimpse of another member! Anyone happen to recognize that hand?
  • KISAKI posted a full-shot solo picture here. Looks good!
  • On 2010-04-13 and 2010-04-20, KISAKI will appear on television program LIVE Cheese. He'll give a comment and play a PV (not sure what the PV is for!).
  • The band members apparently did an interview. And in the 2010-04-21 issue of Cure, KISAKI will have a large feature as a member of 凛 (Rin). I don't think the other members will appear though ;(
② TAKESHI of VAGERKE was in the recording studio with KISAKI to do the chorus for a song. I'm pretty sure it was for 凛 (Rin), but it could possibly be Phantasmagoria. Hopefully this doesn't mean 凛 (Rin) is going in a super hardcore chariots-esque direction!

③ As part of the UNDER CODE 7th anniversary, more special photosets are on sale at the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP.
  • Two are of Phantasmagoria's 2010 look.
  • The other is a set with pictures of session bands that played at UNDER CODE's 2010-03-14 event. The session bands include 水風船 (Mizufuusen), (有)ネガエンタープライセス ((Yuu) NEGA ENTERPRISES), 罪団法人黒十字2010 (Tsumidan Houjin Kurojuuji 2010), メガ龍 (Megaryuu), ハッピーセット (HAPPY SET), 地下線顔面偏差値トップ5!? (Chikasen Ganmen Hensachi TOP 5!?), and バースデー祝い隊 (BIRTHDAY Iwaitai).
④ The privilege for buying both types of 平成維新's (HEISEI ISHIN's) Prism. single from the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP is a signed cheki of the member of your choice. (May have posted that before, but it can't hurt to do it again.)

⑤ By the way, this is the ugly mirror that you could receive by purchasing Phantasmagoria's Diamond Dust and Seeds of Brain through the OFFICIAL WEB SHOP. It was designed by IORI. Good job bro.

⑥ Pretty sure no one reads all of these. New band: 「THE CAPITALS」 feat.KISAKI, MIYAVI, and LADY GAGA.

⑦ Old news, but relevant news: Cure Vol.81 will include a free omnibus CD called Cure NEW AGE COLLECTIONS, which features シンディケイト (CINDYKATE), ex-chariots band Cu[be], ロットマン (LOTMAN) -related band LOKI, and many others. And the whole thing was produced by KISAKI and UNDER CODE PRODUCTION! Apparently, a second CD will be included with Vol.82 and will feature different artists, but those haven't been announced yet.

⑧ Really old news! You know those unspecified presents UNDER CODE bands like to distribute? Here's what a few of them turned out to be.
  • The Synside present on 2010-02-27 was a comment CD.
  • The Megaromania present on 2010-02-28 was a comment CD(?). The Megaromania present on 2009-11-13 was Amethyst DJ MIX.
  • The シンディケイト (CINDYKATE) present on 2010-03-13 and 2010-03-14 was シンディケイトCM音源 (CINDYKATE CM Ongen), a sampler CD.
  • The 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) present on 2009-11-28 was a postcard and a special CD with unknown contents. The 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) present on 2009-12-25 was the same postcard and Merry Christmas SPECIAL CD with a comment and サンタが街にやってくる (SANTA ga Machi ni Yattekuru). 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) also released two untitled sampler CDs, one with a blank white label and the other with the default CD-R surface. I'm not sure when they were released, but it seems to have been at the same events as the last two presents I mentioned.
⑨ The Phantasmagoria version of the UCP 7th anniversary lucky bag present DVD that I mentioned here was filmed on 2010-03-18. Dali and Megaromania versions still haven't been announced. They better hurry up! Bag's supposed to ship soon!

⑩ Online store THE OFFICIAL SHOP sells Japanese photosets to overseas customers. Apparently, UNDER CODE released a bunch of photosets through the store way back in February and decided not to tell anyone. Anyway, you can find photosets of Phantasmagoria (2010), chariots, ClearVeil, Synside, two sets of Megaromania, two of Arc, two of 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), and a special live photoset of Nega. Buy them and scan them for us!

Posts from 2009

[Archived] Catching Up
chariots officially changed their logo with the release of (Hikari) back on 2009-10-07. (Definitely old news, but I needed to put it somewhere for future reference.)

② chariots' ex-bassist 憂里 (Yuuri) has a new band called Cu[be]. They're not with UNDER CODE, but it's worth mentioning. (I don't know of an OHP for them or anything.)

chariots members 戮 (Riku) and 秋都 (Akito) will be holding live events to celebrate their birthdays:
  • 戮's (Riku's) event is Happy Birthday 33th Anniversary, which will take place on 2010-01-08 at OSAKA MUSE. It will feature chariots, 罪団法人黒十字2010 (Tsumidan Houjin Kurojuuji 2010) (the chariots × Dali session band), Bloodly-HISKA-clown (a variation of the Bloodly-clown session band), CORKSCREW (probably a KUROYUME cover band), and K.R.Paradox.
  • 秋都's (Akito's) event is 秋都HappyHappy Birthday Party (Akito HappyHappy Birthday Party) and will take place on 2010-01-17 at HOLIDAY NAGOYA. It will feature chariots; one night revivals of Mëbíus, ルフィー嬋命 (RUEPHY ALIVE), and Pashya; and guest bands Arc, Megaromania, 水風船 (Mizufuusen), and Cu[be].
④ It seems that ネガ (NEGA) has changed their name to Nega. We'll have to wait to see if it's permanent.

⑤ The covers of Nega's Haunted Jealousy singles have been revealed. A Type, B Type, and C Type.

⑥ The covers of 平成維新's (HEISEI ISHIN's) パブリックセンチメント (PUBLIC SENTIMENT) mini-album were released some time ago. The A type can be found here and the B type can be found here.

⑦ The cover of E'm ~grief~'s Amentia was released some time ago and can be found here. Oh, and it turns out that song “Seducd” is actually Seduce, so that's good.
