Ren solo live and Mis†ake revival
Ren solo live and Mis†ake revival

Sanada Ren (of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) has mentioned that Nanjou Riku (南條 戮) (of chariots) will appear at his 2016-01-11 solo live at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) JU-ZA.

Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (as “Kurojuuji”) will perform, and cheki of both vocalists will be sold at the live. Those who purchase 5,000 yen worth of goods will be allowed to take a twoshot with either Ren or Riku, and will further receive a 2004 photograph of Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji. There's also something about personal goods/live DVD in regards to cheki being sold, but I don't understand it.


Furthermore, Ren's 90s-visual alter-ego band Mis†ake will hold a time limited revival as Mis†akeⅡ (From.加古川). Their oneman, Mezamereba, REMEMBER (めざめれば、リメンバー), will be held on 2016-02-12 at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) JU-ZA, with opening act Paranoid≠circuS.

I've no clue who the Mis†akeⅡ members are, as the flyer just shows weird stick figures. (In the past, it was Dali members, but I assume that's not the case anymore.)

The band's first PV DVD will be sold at the live, and there's also something about tea and SNS, but I have no fucking clue what they're talking about. It also appears they'll be hand-selling tickets somewhere, but, again, idk.
Recap of Ren (Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) 2015 activities
Here's a chronological recap of what Ren (Dali, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi, etc.) and his projects have been up to this year:

  • Tatoeba Konna Hanashi paused activities on 2015-03-27.
  • Tatoeba Konna Hanashi vocalist 真田 廉 (Sanada Ren) and bassist Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗) then formed unit NOBEL LABEL (ノベルラベル), which played on 2015-04-19 and 2015-04-29.

    NOBEL LABEL (ノベルラベル)

  • At NOBEL LABEL's first live, the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was either: the unit's first demo CD-R, or a DVD-R of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's encore from their oneman. The unit also sold their first photoset and badge set.

    NOBEL LABEL photoset

    NOBEL LABEL badge set

  • At NOBEL LABEL's second live, they sold their second badge set, and the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was a Tatoeba Konna Hanashi new song demo CD-R.

    NOBEL LABEL second badge set

  • Tatoeba Konna Hanashi members G. Ninna Kousuke (仁和 恒介), B. Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗), and D. Kishihara Masami (岸原 雅巳) participated in the TOWER RECORDS “VISUAL LIFE Vol.1” project. It was basically a pamphlet featuring artists' comments (and some photos) that was awarded to those who purchased participating artists' CDs during 2015-05-12~2015-06-12.
  • On 2015-05-25, NOBEL LABEL held another live, and sold their third badge set.

    A new Mis†ake (Dali alter-ego band) “best album” was released at the live. Also, the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was either of these Dali live DVD-Rs:
    - 2012-10-28 Dali Halloween alter-ego session Happy☆Everyday (はっぴい☆えぶりでい)
    - 2012-08-08 Dali sponsored event

    NOBEL LABEL third badge set

  • Later in May, Dali made a few items available for mail-order through their official blog (despite being disbanded). The band's last live DVD and last original CD were available, along with the aforementioned Mis†ake best album. (See this page for instructions.)
  • Apparently, Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗) became absent (seceded? became too busy?) from NOBEL LABEL some time in June?

    The unit held its first sponsored event, Shimesu EMOTION 3 (示すエモーション), on 2015-06-19 at Ash OSAKA. ex-paradeis guitarist Ao (碧) acted as support. The unit sold their fourth badge set.

    NOBEL LABEL fourth badge set

  • LOTMAN's 2013 mini-album was made available for mail-order through the Tatoeba Konna Hanashi blog on 2015-06-22.
  • At NOBEL LABEL's 2015-07-23 live, the unit sold its fifth badge set, and the 5,000 yen purchase privilege was a demo CD-R of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's seventh unnamed song. ex-tomodachi bassist Io (伊緒) acted as support.

    NOBEL LABEL fifth badge set

  • On 2015-08-07, vocalist Sanada Ren (真田 廉) held his first solo live during a twoman with umbrella. umbrella to Sanada Ren (umbrellaと真田 廉) was held at Minamihorie (南堀江) SOCORE FACTORY.

    At the live, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's first USB collection, USB oh! memory, was sold for 4,000 yen. It contained:
    - demo of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi's eighth untitled song
    - acoustic demo of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi song ed
    - lyrics
    - flyer images from 2013~2015 (6 total)
    - photos from 2013~2015 (19 total)

    Sanada Ren (真田 廉) vs umbrella Sanada Ren (真田 廉)


Also, the Tatoeba Konna Hanashi official website has closed... Ren stays messy and impossible to follow, unfortunately ;x. I've personally given up trying to get Tatoeba (etc.) releases, but it's nice to know that Ren is still chugging along and having fun, somewhere.

BALA★NCE change
New Sanada Ren (真田 廉) project BALA★NCE has made a change to yesterday's announcement: instead of a comment CD, those who spend 5,000 yen at their live will receive a live DVD recorded on that day (to be shipped at a later date). They've also uploaded the cover of their single: BALA★NCE discography.
More limited releases from Ren project BALA★NCE
The other day, Sanada Ren (真田 廉) (ex-Dali, etc.), announced his new project BALA★NCE. He mentioned that they would release a CD at their first live on 2014-06-11―instead, they'll actually release three things.

They'll freely distribute a one track song called DANCING ALL RIGHT! (ダンシングオールライト!) to everyone who attends. At the same time, they'll sell a two track CD called Sarasa RANGER (さらさレンジャー) for 1,000 yen. Finally, anyone who spends 5,000 yen or more on their goods will be rewarded with a comment CD, a group cheki, and something else (unspecified).

Apparently, two of the songs are remakes of Mis†ake songs. You know, the gothic kote kei alter-ego band of ex-Dali members? Check out BALA★NCE's discography for more information.
Ren (Dali ~ Tatoeba Konna Hanashi) new project
Sanada Ren (真田 廉)―vocalist of Dali, Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし), etc.―has announced his latest musical project: BALA★NCE.

  • V. †SODOM† (†ソドム†) [ex-Mis†ake] {alter-ego of Ren}
  • G. OSCAR (オスカー)
  • B. MUTTLEY (マトレー)
  • Support D. Kisshan。 (きっしゃん。)

So it seems that this will be some weird time-limited alter-ego band. I remember "SODOM” being the vocalist of Mis†ake, so that has to be Ren, but I'm not sure who the other members are. The other members of Tatoeba Konna Hanashi? Someone else? Maybe Trombe knows?

Anyway, BALA★NCE will hold their first live on 2014-06-11 at Ash OSAKA (other details about the event TBA... even though it's only days away...). To commemorate their formation, they'll release their untitled demo CD-R.
Paranoid≠circuS and BEST BROTHERS updates
So, Paranoid≠circuS is the band of ex-SUZAKU (朱) roadies, and THE BEST BROTHERS is the band of ex-Dali roadies. Here's a roundup of the latest news from both:

  • Paranoid≠circuS drummer YUSURA (ユスラ) was in an accident earlier in May and has found it mentally distressing to continue band activities while recovering. As such, he has seceded from the band as of 2014-05-21.
  • Despite the member loss, Paranoid≠circuS will release their 2nd single, Chingonka (鎮魂歌), through ELE-MUSIC on 2014-07-09.
  • THE BEST BROTHERS will disband on 2014-07-23.

    The band had paused activities last year due to the retirement of guitarist SATO→ (サト→), but had finally revived on 2014-03-24 under the name BES BRO (ベスブラ). However, the band admits that they still found it difficult to continue without SATO→, and thus have decided to formally disband in July.

Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji live and release
Continual session band Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (財団法人黒十字) will perform today in a RIKU-less version called Zaidan Hitori Kurojuuji (罪団一人黒十字). At the live, Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (the normal version of the session) will release a demo CD-R containing a new song.

2 Gatsu 22 Nichi details forming
Prototype band 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi (2がつ22にち、せかいほぼくらをしる。) has released details for the live which is foretold by their name: oneman live Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし) will be held on 2014-02-22 at Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) LIVE HOUSE D'.

It seems that Tatoeba Konna Hanashi (たとえばこんなはなし) will also be the official name of 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi once the band formally begins activities, as that phrase translates to “for example, such story” (the URL of 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi's blog).

Furthermore, at that live, 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi members will switch to using full versions of their names, and the new bassist will join (replacing ex-Dali bassist Yuu, who left 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi on 2013-12-20, before the band's first live).

In summary: on 2014-02-22, prototype band 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi will become official band Tatoeba Konna Hanashi, with lineup:
V. Sanada Ren (真田 廉) 【ex-Dali ~ LOTMAN ~ etc.】
G. Ninna Kousuke (仁和 恒介) 【ex-LOTMAN ~ etc.】
B. Takahashi Kento (高橋 研斗) 【?】
D. Kishihara Masami (岸原 雅巳) 【ex-LOTMAN ~ etc.】


Two other bits of 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi news: ① those who spent 5,000 yen on goods at their first live received a free photoset; and ② those who participated in the game of onigokko were invited to a New Year visit to a shrine with 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi members after their first live.

2 Gatsu 22 Nichi member updates
2 Gatsu 22 Nichi member updates

2 Gatsu 22 Nichi, Sekai ha Bokura wo Shiru。 (2がつ22にち、せかいはぼくらをしる。)—the recently-revealed new band of ex-Dali & LOTMAN (ロットマン) members—has been slowly divulging (officially) its members' names over several blog posts. Here's what we have so far:

  • V. Ren (苓) [a.k.a. Ren (れん)] 【ex- etc. → SUGAR FORKFUL → Dali → LOTMAN】 ※ he hasn't revealed his name in the new band yet, but since the others are using kanji names, and Ren previously used this name in SUGAR FORKFUL, I'll just assume

  • G. Kousuke (恒介) [a.k.a. SORA (ソラ)] 【ex- MeLt. → LOTMAN】 ※ not 100% sure of romanisation, or if this is actually SORA; but it is assumed by fans

  • B. Miyauchi Yuki (宮内結規) [a.k.a. YUU (ユウ)] 【ex- etc. → SUGAR FORKFUL → Dali → LOTMAN】 ※ appears to be his formal name; unsure of the full romanisation

  • D. Masami (雅巳) [a.k.a. Miyabi (雅)] 【ex- AIRA (愛飴羅) → LiLith → LOTMAN】 ※ this person was previously listed as male in their blog, but is using the prefix Mrs (ミセス) as of joining 2 Gatsu―not sure if the usage is serious

Other bits of info: ● a clearer picture of the band has been released (above); ● the band will debut at two New Year countdown events: one at Ash OSAKA and the other at Shinsaibashi soma, both on 2013-12-31; ● the band might(?) have a Twitter @2gatsu22nichi.
Dali~LOTMAN new band revealed―sort of
Dali~LOTMAN new band revealed―sort of

LOTMAN (ロットマン) disbanded today, and flyers distributed during the show have revealed vocalist Ren's (れん) new band! ...sort of.

In classic troll fashion, the band is temporarily being called 2 Gatsu 22 Nichi, Sekai ha Bokura wo Shiru. (2がつ22にち、せかいはぼくらをしる。)―meaning “our world will be revealed on February 22”. So, while we wait for 2014-02-22 for the actual band to be revealed, let's speculate, shall we?

Despite the members' faces being blurred on the distributed flyer, the lineup is pretty clear:
  • V. Ren (れん) (ex-Dali~LOTMAN)
  • G. SORA (ソラ) (ex-Melt.~LOTMAN)
  • B. YUU (ユウ) (ex-Dali~LOTMAN)
  • D. Miyabi (雅) (ex-LOTMAN)

So... LOTMAN! The lineup, casual costumes, childish hiragana writing, and sort of “messy reveal” all imply to me that this new band's concept/music will be exactly the same as late-period Dali and LOTMAN―but hopefully without the same awful live-limited release schemes. Looks like we'll be waiting for February to know anything for sure, but hopefully we can get some revealing live reports after 2 Gatsu plays their first live at Planet CHILD Music's New Year countdown event on 2013-12-31!


By the way, LOTMAN played with two lineups at their last live: first with Ren, SORA, Kayane, YUU, and Miyabi; and second with Ren, SORA, Ao, YUU, and Miyabi. In between the two lineups, the 90s-visual alter-ego band Mis†ake appeared―but this time it was actually just Dali!! In his MC, Ren mentioned that he felt the handling of Dali's last live was sort of messy, so this appearance served as a “re-do”.


2 Gatsu has opened an official blog (“for-example-such-story”―wonder if that has to do with the band's actual name?), which you can follow for updates.

Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji will perform
Long-running session UNDER CODE PRODUCTION session band Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (罪団法人黒十字) will perform in 2014―sort of. The session classically features dual vocalists Ren (ex-Dali) and RIKU (ex-LIN), but RIKU will not appear this time; the session has therefore been renamed to Zaidan Hitori Kurojuuji (罪団1人黒十字). Besides Ren, the session will also feature LOTMAN guitarist SORA and ex-Vior gloire bassist RENA.

Mis†ake to release new CD

By the way, I wonder if Zutsuu will be a “prototype” for a band which Ren has mentioned thinking about.
LOTMAN to disband(?)
LOTMAN to disband(?)

LOTMAN (ロットマン), solo project of ex-Dali vocalist Ren (苓), held a fan meeting on 2013-09-09. According to one source on Twitter, Ren announced at the meeting that he will “secede from LOTMAN” on 2013-11-25 at Ash OSAKA―and since LOTMAN is Ren's project, his secession implies disbandment.

There's no other information to be found about it at the moment, but that's just how LOTMAN operates unfortunately. In the mean time, here are some nuggets of LOTMAN info:
  • LOTMAN's new song #3 is now titled Sagyou Now (作業なう)
  • ex-Dali bassist YUU (ユウ) has been playing with LOTMAN for a while
  • LOTMAN's next live is 2013-09-21 at OSAKA RUIDO
  • They have a bunch of distributed CD-R and DVD-R―check the discography section!
  • They filmed a comment for Jackman's oneman tour―check it
  • November 25 is also the date of Dali's disbandment last year ;(

Dali and LOTMAN updates
Two minor updates: LOTMAN announced an event and Dali updated their blog.

LOTMAN (solo project of ex-Dali vocalist Ren) announced an event, Mikirihassha Tokkyuu Meeting Iki (みきりはっしゃとっきゅうみぃてぃんぐ行き), to be held on 2013-09-09 at Nanba Benitsuru (a meeting hall). The event is limited to 30 people, and it seems like it will just be a quick meeting between Ren and fans, rather than a live. (?)


Dali updated their blog on 2013-08-08 (the anniversary of their disbandment announcement). I'm not sure if the post is just really emotional, or if it's lyrics, but either way I'm posting it more to preserve the contents, since they're sure to delete it soon.

はたせないやくそくも、ぼくになるんだ。 2013-08-08








Dali's countdown ends
Dali had been counting down the days until their disbandment live. On the image for day “0” (the day of their disbandment), a new countdown was started from “34”. In true Dali fashion, the band reached only “33” of the new countdown before lazily abandoning it―but the “0” day was reached on June 6th, and they sort of did something.

On June 6th (day “0” of the band's new countdown), Dali updated their blog with a short video clip, which I think is taken from the beginning of their last live DVD (which can be purchased via the official web shop). ...Aaaaand that's it!

Since I know Dali, I knew they would delete the video―which they have―so I saved it and reuploaded it for you. Check it out below.


UNDER CODE PRODUCTION announced the first part of its web shop's last special fair today (I detailed the “0th part” in the previous post). For LAST FAIR PART:1, the web shop has updated with tons of special new items―mostly bootleg live DVDs―and has announced a very special privilege campaign!

( View the rest of this entry )
Dali's releases and countdown

With the completion of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's last live on May 3rd, Dali has officially disbanded... However, it seems that they're not done playing with us yet.

If you'll recall, Dali had started a mysterious countdown, posting an image of a number every day, counting down to “0”, which was on the day of UNDER CODE's last live. However, once the countdown reached “0”, the band started a new countdown, starting from “34” this time... This new countdown is paced to reach “0” on June 5th―but I'm not sure what that could possibly mean...


Secondly, I wanted to mention Dali's live-limited releases which they sold at UNDER CODE's last event. First, they sold a second press of their live-limited single from November of last year, ROCKING CHAIR to CREEP (which itself was a 2nd press / complete edition of a two-type single sold earlier in September). The new version has no new content but does feature a new jacket.

More importantly, Dali sold a DVD with footage from their last oneman live (at which they “disbanded”―until they decided to “postpone disbandment” until UNDER CODE's last live). The DVD contains complete footage from that oneman, with the exception of encore songs, which were available instead as two privilege DVDs for spending 5,000 yen on Dali goods.

For complete information, see Dali's discography.


ex-Dali vocalist Ren continues with his side project LOTMAN, but I'll make a separate post on that sometime. For now, let's appreciate Dali, and hope that their new countdown leads to new activity.

UNDER CODE PRODUCTION has closed・・・ In memorial of 10 years of this legendary and unorthodox label, a new bible will be released: ARCHIVES 2003~2013. Furthermore, this timeless collector's item will include UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's last live DVD!!

UNDER CODE's “treasure book” is called ARCHIVES 2003~2013 and will be released on June 20th, 2013, through the label's official web shop. The book will collect 128 full color pages, and will cost 12,600 yen. The book will feature 6 major sections, but will also include a two-point special privilege, as well as a web shop limited privilege:

  1. A great number of artists' official photos
  2. Exclusive live report of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION last event Nihon Seiatsu FINAL -since 2003~2013- 2013.5.03 at Osaka BIG CAT

  7. ...and more

  • Unique, only-one-in-the-world special CD by Ray (NEGA) × CO- (F・B) special unit AD LIBBERS (アドリヴァーズ), in which they create a completely original song based on the title you specify
Dali's mysterious countdown
On Monday, Dali updated their official blog, posting an image of the number 10. Every day since then, the band has been counting down with similar posts...

The countdown will reach 0 on May 3rd, the date of UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's grand finale and dismantling. Dali will appear at that event and officially, officially, disband, so it's likely that the countdown is in regards to that dismandment/dismantling. But, who knows?, it could be counting down to something good... What do you think?
KISAKI 20th anniversary lucky bags & birthday party

KISAKI will release a special lucky bag to celebrate his 20th year of band activity! Furthermore, he has decided on a spur-of-the-moment birthday party, to be held shortly after his 20th anniversary memorial live.

KISAKI's lucky bag will include a great number of rare items (music, goods, etc.) of his successive bands from throughout his 20 year history. Furthermore, the purchase privilege is 1 cheki, and 2 photos (of 5 possible) from KISAKI's mysterious early bands (when he was only 18~20 years old!). The bag is available, in extremely limited quantities, for 3,675 yen through the official web shop.

Furthermore, KISAKI has decided on a spur-of-the-moment birthday party, to be held late on March 10th at Shinsaibashi soma, shortly after his 20th anniversary memorial live at Osaka BIG CAT earlier that day. KISAKI will appear along with his hand-picked “Chikasen's most interesting”―Ray (NEGA), KANATA (LIN), KEETO (Dali), CO- & YUKIHIRO (FUTURISM・BOYZ)―and will spend the night comfortably celebrating (no performances will take place) with attendees.

Tickets to the party are available now through the official web shop for 6,000 yen. Only an extremely limited number of attendees will be allowed, and only those 20-years-old or older will be allowed to enter!
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.

UNDER CODE last birthday event

At today's UNDER CODE PRODUCTION last New Year countdown event (which was SOLD OUT, by the way!), several of the label's last lives were announced. First up: the last UNDER CODE birthday event will celebrate the birthdays of LIN drummer REIYA and NEGA bassist Ray!

Arc one day revival information

Today, more information about Arc's one day revival has been released! It seems that PERESTROIKA will hold a one day revival at the event as well, and special session bands Zaidan Houjin Kurojuuji (罪団法人黒十字) and 可菜水木 (Kanamizuki) will also appear.

LOTMAN announces lives

LOTMAN (ロットマン), the solo project of ex-Dali vocalist Ren (苓), has announced a few lives! This comes as a shock since the project was thought to have been completed (and it was assumed that Ren would be inactive after Dali disbanded). Details below.

2013-01-05 at somewhere in 东京 (Tokyo)

2013-01-11 at 心斋桥 (Shinsaibashi) FAN-J
(details TBA)

The 2012 date is sponsored by rivabook and has nothing to do with UNDER CODE; LOTMAN is just appearing there. The first 2013 date simply says “onigokko somewhere in Tokyo.” But most interesting is the last one―up until their disbandment, Dali held an annual oneman on January 11th, and FAN-J was their base livehouse... I wonder if there's something special planned for that day!
Dali disbands―and makes important announcement

Today, Dali held their final oneman live, and disbanded. The set list was around 3 hours long and featured 5(!) encores. They also sold a final CD (details below). Overall, it seems that the fans unanimously found the live beautiful, and a fitting end to Dali's 7 years of activity.

Just an hour after the live, KISAKI has posted a serious announcement from Dali: Dali will appear at UNDER CODE PRODUCTION's final “dismantling” event in the spring of 2013. In other words, Dali's disbandment has been postponed until that day.


Personally... is the phrase “Dali has postponed their disbandment” different from “Dali will hold a one day revival”? It's not as if they plan any other activity... But anyway, semantics ignored, I'm happy that Dali has just one more performance left. They will be missed.


Their last live-limited CD was ロッキンチェアとクリープ (ROCKING CHAIR to CREEP), a compilation re-release of a two-type live-limited CD (of the same title) from September. This new version features all 3 songs from the original two-type release (which itself had 2 new songs and 1 re-recording), plus 1 additional, new re-recording. It also reveals the titles of those songs (which were previously all untitled).

Alter-ego release from Dali

Dali has announced that their recently-introduced alter-ego band Mis†ake will release its first CD-R.

The CD-R―which is supposedly a 3rd pressing of Mis†ake's demotape―will be freely distributed to those who attend Dali's October 10th five-hour-long oneman live, ダリコレ2012 finale OSAKA (きかくもの) (DALI COLLE 2012 finale OSAKA (Kikakumono)). (By the way, Dali is now calling this “oneman live” (ワンマンライブ) a “wonton live” (ワンタンライブ), hahaha.). Mis†ake will also be the opening act at the live, and their PV will be played via projection at some point during the show.

By the way, since the last post I made about this, I've figured out the actual lineup of Mis†ake. Apparently, ex-Dali guitarist SAKI (サキ) is the 5th member?!
  • Voice - ソドム (SODOM) [Ren]
  • Guitar - 无印印 (Mujirushijirushi) [KEETO]
  • Guitar - 血飞沫飞沫 (Chishibukishibuki) [SAKI (ex-Dali)]
  • Bass - 弥琴 (Mikoto) [YUU]
  • Drums - 迷宫 (Mayomiya) [Shunna]
WE LOVE UNDER CODE privilege sharing program
Although it's ahead of schedule, I'm happy to announce the WE LOVE UNDER CODE privilege sharing program!

Starting today, those of you who purchase qualifying releases through CDJapan and provide proof to WE LOVE UNDER CODE will receive copies of Japan-only store privileges! The catch is that this only applies to certain releases (those which will be purchased by WE LOVE UNDER CODE staff participating in this program), and they must be purchased via the affiliate links below (this allows me to confirm the purchase, and any funds will go to special WE LOVE UNDER CODE programs planned for the rest of the year).

Participating in the program is simple: purchase one of the following qualifying CDs using the affiliate links below. Once you have completed your purchase, forward the CDJapan confirmation email to, and the privilege will be mailed to you upon its release.

Further clarifying information will be forthcoming in the next week, but these are the basics. I will continue to post updates any time that releases are added to or removed from this program, or if any there are any changes in privileges.

Although CDJapan is the best store for international visual kei purchases (because of its point rewards and multitude of payment options), it's sometimes sorely lacking in privileges when compared to Japanese stores. Hopefully this program can change that, even if only for a few people. I hope that this is a welcomed program for those of you who can only purchase from CDJapan!

Dali's important announcement... disbandment

Dali held their sponsored event today, at which they finally made their important announcement: Dali will disband.

Before disbanding, they'll release a best album, embark on their last event tour, and then hold a last oneman tour. No specific date has been marked as their disbandment day―I assume it's November 25th, the last day of their oneman tour, but it could also be at a later, TBA, date.

As for the best album, it features a new SE, but is otherwise comprised of previously-released tracks, with no changes. It does, however, contain a few songs which some fans might not have heard before: 25:55 (web shop limited), D PINK NUMBER (live limited remake of standard pink number), and Ryuusei Kouba (live limited). Similarly, all PVs on the DVD are previously-released as well. Full info is below.

New look for Dali

Dali has debuted a new look, seen above (unfortunately, this is the largest version available for now). It seems that the band's brief period of dark visuals was indeed a fluke―they've returned to their de facto standard artistic costumes, this time in white. The costumes look quite good, but I hope they'll be paired with the announcement of some substantial activity!
Dali announces distributed CD

Dali has just announced that they will freely distribute a new song at their August 8th sponsored event, ダリコレ2012 finale TOKYO (DALI COLLE 2012 finale TOKYO).

The “cover art” below accompanied the announcement, but it's not known if it's actually cover art or just a random image. If it is cover art, then the title of the new song is probably “Kaifuuhi” as indicated―if not, then I'm not sure what the song is called!

Either way, the phrase 開封日 is interesting―it means “day of breaking the seal.” Could this possibly mean that Dali's important announcement (which they will make at the event) could be a good one rather than bad?

New release from Dali (but don't get excited!)
Dali announces a new release―but you can't get it!

The good news: Dali will release a new CD, in two types (for a total of three new songs), this September. The bad news: the CD is live limited, you can only buy each type on a specific day, and neither type will ever be sold again in any form―so say goodbye to any dreams of ever hearing it!

Here are some [unofficial] bits of news from friends who have attended Dali's lives. First, the band apparently debuted new costumes, which are stark white (“they resemble ghosts!”). Second, these live-limited CDs that I mentioned will supposedly be sold at a 2-day sponsored event by the band. More news when it comes!

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!

[Band Profile] KAKASHI
So, long story short, I discovered a folder of webpages that I'd saved years ago, and that inspired me to dig up a little more information about an old band called カカシ (KAKASHI).

The reason I [and you should] care about カカシ (KAKASHI) is their band history: the guitarist was also in シュガーフォークフル (SUGAR FORKFUL) and Dali, and the vocalist was in Marvelous Maiden and has been a long time UNDER CODE PRODUCTION staff member! So as you can see, although KAKASHI was never affiliated with UCP, the members definitely have a history with the label.

  • Vo. タカフミ (TAKAFUMI) BIRTHDAY 8/30 [カカシ (KAKASHI) → R.E.D → Marvelous Maiden (+ UNDER CODE PRODUCTION staff)]
  • Gu. シュンサク (SHUNSAKU) BIRTHDAY 7/29 [カカシ (KAKASHI) → シュガーフォークフル (SUGAR FORKFUL) → Dali]
  • Ba. 朝比奈 雛 (ASAHINA HINA) BIRTHDAY 11/13 [カカシ (KAKASHI) → ギル (GILL) → Villain → FOWR]
  • Dr. トヲル (TOWORU) BIRTHDAY 2/18 [カカシ (KAKASHI) → ラチ (LACHI)]

【BIOGRAPHY】カカシ (KAKASHI) was formed in 2003 by leader シュンサク (SHUNSAKU). They held their first live on December 23rd, at which they freely distributed their first CD, 少年時代 (Shounen Jidai). (At this live, トヲル (TOWORU) served as support drummer; it wasn't until January 25th, 2004, that he officially joined the band.)
Only three months after forming, the band seemed to be gaining momentum: on 2004-03-15 they freely distributed a second press of 少年時代 (Shounen Jidai), and on 2004-03-28 they held their first oneman live. However, on May 21st of that year, they announced that they would soon disband.

The band's first live in 2004 was held on 2004-01-25, and トヲル (TOWORU) officially joined the band at this live. On 2004-03-15, the band freely distributed a second press of 少年時代 (Shounen Jidai). Later that month, on 2004-03-28, the band held their first oneman live. However, on 2004-05-21, the band announced that they would soon disband.

On June 13th, 2004, カカシ (KAKASHI) participated in the omnibus release BAD FLOWER. However, on July 10th, the band held its final live at 神戸 (Kobe) MerseyBeat and disbanded. At that live, the band sold its final release, a mini-album called 我愁 (我愁). (The full tracklisting of that release is unknown, but it is known to have contained the songs 沈丁花 (Shinchouge) and 風切羽 (Kazakiribane).)

Immediately after カカシ (KAKASHI) disbanded, guitarist シュンサク (SHUNSAKU) joined the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band シュガーフォークフル (SUGAR FORKFUL), and would later work his way to Dali (although he left that band in its infancy, and has not worked since). Vocalist タカフミ (TAKAFUMI) eventually formed the band Marvelous Maiden, but is more known for being the head staff at UNDER CODE PRODUCTION. Bassist 雛 (HINA) joined a few small bands, the most recent being ex-MIRAGE band FOWR. Finally, drummer トヲル (TOWORU) has been fairly inactive, except for a short stint in a band called ラチ (LACHI).

[Archived] Dali Limited Releases available at CDJapan
I was so excited when I saw this I wanted to let other Dali fans know! Some of Dali's previously live or UCP Webshop only releases are now available at CDJapan. Ryusei Koba is a sweet and melancholy song that became an instant favourite for me, and 25:55 has a CD cover that was hand-drawn by Ren. They're only 1000yen each, so cheap~!

CDJapan is very easy to use, and has a generous point collection system for future discounts. I also found the Next Innovators (Suzaku, Voir gloire, Cube release) there in case anyone was looking for it.

This sounds like a CDJapan ad. I don't work for CDJapan (^_^;;)
UNDER CODE 9th anniversary addition
UNDER CODE PRODUCTION recently announced an additional event to its “RIOT GALE of NINE YEARS” live series, which celebrates its 9th anniversary.

The new event is called 江坂遊戯 (Esaka Yuugi; Esaka Games) and will be divided into two parts: the first part featuring most of UNDER CODE's bands, and the second part featuring session bands made up of those members.

Tickets are on sale now: a regular ticket (good for one part of the live only) can be purchased for 3,150 yen through the normal venues; but a special picture ticket, which is good for both parts of the live, can be purchased exclusively through the official web shop for 5,500 yen. Tickets #1 ~ #100 were initially sold at the web shop, but those immediately sold out, so tickets #101 ~ #200 have now been added.

UNDER CODE is sponsoring an event for 兼継 (Kentz), ex drummer of 「あゃ」 (「Aya」) and chariots, as he retires from the music scene. (I mentioned this live in a previous post, but full details have since been revealed.)

The live is called SELFISH DREAMER with DEAR FRIENDS and will take place on April 21st and 28th. At both lives, 「あゃ」 (「Aya」) will hold a revival performance, and chariots will appear as a friendship guest. Furthermore, NEGA and REALies will appear during the first day, and Dali, REALies, and Vior gloire will appear on the second day. Furthermore, Anjyu' will hold a revival performance during the second day.

[Archived] Dali update
Dali's new flyer has been published, so I have some updates for you:

First of all, some time ago I mentioned that Dali had three upcoming releases: a limited single called Rarirurero in November, an unannounced release in December, and a limited single called 25:55 in January. That news was from official sources—KISAKI mentioned the December release, and the band's page at the OHP mentioned (and still does) the November and January releases.

Now that the band has published a new flyer, it's clear that the only release will be the one in January. I'm not sure what happened—perhaps releases were initially planned but then cancelled—but it seems that Dali will only release the one new song, 25:55, until at least March of 2012 :(.


Oh, but a final note: KISAKI did tweet recently that the band had good ideas for some sort of project, but that they were really slow about realizing them. So perhaps Dali has moved back those Rarirurero and unannounced releases back to a later date.


In better news, the flyer mentions a twoman with SOMATIC GUARDIAN (which will be their second time; guess the two bands are good friends!). The twoman will be held over two days and will be called めらんこりっくんらん (Melancholikunran). More details will apparently be announced later.

Also, if you hadn't noticed, Dali updated their group and profile pictures at their official page. It's the same photoshoot before, but they added some [tacky] effects and got rid of the cool rainbow light. ;(

[Archived] Actually, two new songs from Dali
It seems that Dali will release two limited singles in upcoming months. I previously reported that the new song 25:55 would be released on 2012-01-11, but now it seems that there's to be another before that: らりるれろ (Rarirurero) will be released on 2011-11-11.

Again, the singles will only be sold at the band's oneman lives and through the official web shop. Anyway, I'm excited! (And I wonder if these are taking the place of the December release that KISAKI mentioned—I hope not!)

Most importantly of all, they announced the release of a new song called 25:55. The CD will be live and official web shop -limited. It will go on sale on 2011-01-11 (at the OSAKA oneman), but the price has not yet been specified.


If KISAKI was telling the truth, they still have a regular release to announce for December. So I dunno what's going on with that, but hopefully it will be announced soon.

Oh, and by the way, I was about to nerdrage so hard when I saw that limited CD, but then I noticed the “official web shop” bit and cried tears of joy. Yessssss!

[Archived] new Dali release announced!
KISAKI announced on his blog that Dali will release a new CD sometime in December.

I was a bit scared what's up with them because they release stuff so sporadically nowadays but looks like my prayers have been answered. :D Lookin' forward to it! I liked their last offering.

[Archived] Dali free oneman goods
Dali is holding a free oneman on the 8th called ダリコレ2011 pajamas (DALI COLLECTION 2011 pajamas) at HOLIDAY OSAKA. (And hopefully you knew that—the band has been holding up flyers for the oneman in every picture they've been featured in, including the Style Council I just posted about |D)

Anyway, the band has announced the goods that they'll be selling at the live. Of course, there are some ones that are live-limited.
  • CDs/DVDs
  • Cheki
  • Photosets
  • T-shirt
  • Limited DVD “いえないないようDVDつう (Ienainaiyou DVD Two)”
Those who spend at least 3,000 yen on CDs/DVDs plus at least 2,000 yen on the other goods (a total of 5,000 yen) will be allowed to partake in a photo session with the band. The photos will be a five-shot (all four members plus the customer), with the customer allowed to sit by their favorite member. Two-shots (customer + their favorite member) are also allowed instead. However, there are limited slots available, so if you're going, be sure to purchase stuff early!

[Archived] New release and lives for Dali!!
Dali has fiiiiiinally announced some new activities!

First, they'll release their first CD in over a year, a maxi-single called セイメイロンリイダイタイアイタイ (SEIMEI LONELY DAITAI AITAI). The single will be released in two types on 2011-04-06, the A type containing a PV and the B type containing a bonus track. Those who purchase both types from the official web shop will receive a special DVD + a signed cheki of the member of their choice.

UNDER CODE has been oddly specific with info about their CD publishing lately, and I'm not sure if it's significant in any way, or just them being weird. But just in case: this maxi-single is released and published by UNDER CODE PRODUCTION, and distributed by FWD Distribution (Free-Will).

And of course, they've announced a bunch of lives to celebrate the release. First up is a special sponsored event, at which they'll play a longer set than usual. And it seems that Ren's solo project ロットマン (LOTMAN) will also be there!

After that, it seems that they're making ダリコレ2011 (DALI KORE 2011) a series of sorts. They previously announced the winter version (which will be held in February), but now they've announced spring versions in Tokyo and Osaka. Unfortunately, it seems that they haven't decided the lineup of any lives after April, so that info will be coming later.

And finally, as a “final” to their CD release celebration lives, they'll be holding a threeman at their “home” livehouse, FANJ-twice. But again, the lineup hasn't been announced. I wonder who the other two bands will be!

Being dead serious right now--does anyone know any friends/shopping services in Japan that could possibly go to the January oneman for me D:?

[Archived] Shikkoku no SYMPHONY live photographs
Live photographs of several UNDER CODE bands are available for purchase through and 7-Eleven. The photos seem to have been taken at the three day 漆黒のシンフォニー (Shikkoku no SYMPHONY) event at 埼玉会館ホール (Saitamakaikan HALL) in August.

For those of you familiar with the concept of digiphoto, you'll understand; basically, you select the photos you want online, and then you go to an actual 7-Eleven (in Japan only) and print them off at a special kiosk. This means that we overseas fans can't buy these the regular way, and I'm actually not even sure that many shopping services would be willing to help, since they would have to physically go somewhere.

But for those of you with especially nice shopping services or friends in Japan, here are links to the order pages:

Takaya ((Livqueur Records, ex-カレン)) is following a certain individual on twitter. His name is 竣作 (Shunsaku) and he also has Shunsaku's photo. So, the question is, is it really Shunsaku from Dali/SUGAR FORKFUL?
I truly hope so ;__;

[Archived] Dali's distributing CD and autumn sponsored event
Dali distributed a new song at their 2010-08-01 live last night. The song is called delete delete, and, uh, if you find it for sale let me know because I'm going crazy over not being able to get it. You can see a picture of the please-God-let-me-get-it CD here.

Also, KISAKI mentioned in his blog that Dali will be sponsoring an event on 2010-11-11 at 難波 (Nanba) ROCKETS. No details are available yet, but hopefully it's to celebrate a new release? Please?

It's pretty random of those two to get together, but it's nice to see Dali embarking on a tour (even if it's just a short one!). What do you guys think of the lineup?

[Archived] Live Event~
UNDER CODE is sponsoring a really cool event. It's called 地下線ボーカリストシャッフル祭!? (Chikasen VOCALIST SHUFFLE Matsuri!?) and, well, that pretty much says it all. Several UCP bands will play, but with different vocalists: 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) with 翠 (Sui); Megaromania with 儿 (Jin); Nega with 苓 (Ren); Arc with 拓 (Taku); and Dali with KO-JI. The event is to take place on 2010-07-14 at OSAKA MUSE.

[Archived] Mass Update Part ①
・・・Mass Update Trilogy・・・
—Jet-black Prologue—

I've been sick and busy with school, so I've missed a bunch of stuff. So here's mass update part one, with part two to come after class. I know you're excited!

平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) and ClearVeil have new samples up at the OHP. Prism. and Blazing Star.

平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) and ClearVeil also have cover art for their new singles up at the OHP. You can see them both here, waaaay at the bottom. They kind of suck huh?

③ As I said a few days ago, it looks like UNDER CODE has decided to post small cover art again instead of large cover art. Lame. as. fuck.

④ Cover art for the new Dali new single can be seen at their website, in 700 px glory (this is how it should be done, UCP webmaster!). Here's the A type and the B type.

⑤ Tracklistings for the new Dali have been revealed as well (through Dali's own website, once again~). Details of those are beloooow. Also, .

⑥ More details about that 水風船 (Mizufuusen) vs (有)ネガエンタープライゼス ((Yuu) NEGA ENTERPRISES) twoman. The “battle” will be based on attendance, and whichever band gets the lowest attendance over both battles will have to accept some “humiliating” punishment.

⑦ ↑ From that same event, news for SIVA fans: the opening act for both “battles” will be Lucky13, a session band featuring KAIRI and 雄一 (Yuichi) of SIVA. The session also features bassist 奏 (Kanade), possibly ex-ギズモ (GIZMO), and drummer ヒラマ (HIRAMA), ex-no freaking clue.

Synside will sponsor a three events over three consecutive months. First, ネオ・イデア-内在する仮想- (NEO ・ IDEA -Naizaisuru Kasou-) on 2010-05-05, and, second, イドラ-流転色彩- (IDOLA -Ruten Shikisai-) on 2010-06-20. The third event has not been announced yet. Attendees of both events will receive a special, unannounced present (why can't UNDER CODE ever just tell us ;~;?). Also, .

⑨ UNDER CODE PRODUCTION and 九翟 (the label of DI3SIRAE, VELGREED) are co-sponsoring an event on 2010-05-16 at 心斎橋 (Shinsaibashi) FANJ-twice called BATTLE CIRCUS. The event will feature UNDER CODE bands Arc (addition decided), Dali, ClearVeil, and Synside, 九翟 band VELGREED, and LAGING (not sure if they're on 九翟 or not). Also! Anyone know how to romanize 九翟? Because 翟 does not come up anywhere. The label's CDs are NFCD-00X, so I'm assuming it's Nine F(something)... Anyway, moving on.

ClearVeil is sponsoring a new event tour called Royal Clover Club. The tour includes 2010-05-28 and 29 at 池袋 (Ikebukuro) CYBER, 2010-06-23 at 心斎橋 (Shinsaibashi) FANJ-twice, and 2010-06-24 at 名古屋 (Nagoya) HEARTLAND.

[Archived] UNDER CODE's 7th Anniversary
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 First, they're releasing official bootleg live DVDs of several session bands. Since they're bootlegs, the camera quality isn't amazing, but there will never be another chance to see these bands again! The DVDs range in price from 2,000 yen to 2,940 yen, so I'm assuming some are longer than others. Get them now if you want them!

② Second, the label's releasing a brand new lucky bag! Like the new year lucky bag, this one will contain 25,000 to 30,000 yen's worth of goods for only 3,675 yen. However, this one is even more special. Each set will contain a designed tote bag, the aforementioned goods, and a special “trading” DVD! Each DVD contains a comment and rehearsal footage (1 song) from one band. There are seven DVDs in total, and the one you get is completely random. However, anyone who buys three sets of lucky bags will receive all seven DVDs automatically! Reservations begin March 1st, and the bag will be sent out on April 10th. Quantities are extremely limited, so order now!

I honestly wish I could get it all! The bootleg DVDs especially. I know UNDER CODE actually films a lot of its lives, so it's like getting a peek inside their secret archives. I'll definitely be getting the Tsumidan ones at least. And as for the lucky bag, well, it's always a great deal, and this one has the added bonus of the special DVDs. I wonder if I'll actually be able to get three... Must get that Dali DVD!

[Archived] Live Events
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).

VIDOLL's シュン (SHUN) is having a birthday event at 目黒鹿鳴館 (Meguro Rock Maykan) on 2010-02-15, and some UNDER CODE artists will be there (along with people from other bands): KISAKI, JUN and IORI, ex-VIDOLL members ヒデ (HIDE) and ユキネ (YUKINE), and all the guys from Arc. And more people will be announced in the future, so I'll update if any other UNDER CODE guys are showing up.

③ After their tour final, The Prophecy of the XXX, Nega will be sponsoring an event to celebrate their 5th anniversary (wow!). The Counting Song of the XXX will take place on 2010-04-30 at 渋谷 (Shibuya) O-WEST. spiv states, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), ケミカルピクチャーズ (CHEMICAL PICTURES), 己龍 (Kiryu), ベルベット (Velbet), DragonWAPPPPPPER,, and amber gris will be appearing. Those who attend will receive a present.

④ 総長 (Souchou a.k.a. KO-JI of Arc) and りゅうと (Ryuuto) of ClearVeil are sponsoring an event. 地下☆ドル ~愛込めさせて頂きます~ (Chika ☆ DOLL ~Ai Komesasete Itadakimasu~) will be held on 2010-04-16 at 秋葉原 (Akihabara) CLUB GOODMAN. Arc, ClearVeil, and special session band 秋奈名原 -アキナバラ- (Akinabara -AKINABARA-) will perform.

⑤ I previously mentioned Megaromania's last lives with the current lineup. Well, the names of the lives have been revealed: Oblivious of farewell. The final show will be recorded, and those who attend will get their names put in the credits of the eventual DVD release. The DVD will be mailed later to those who attended the show.

Arc is sponsoring two birthday events. color踊る脚 -KO-JI BIRTHDAY EVENT- (color Odoru Ashi -KO-JI BIRTHDAY EVENT-) will take place on 2010-04-29 at OSAKA MUSE and will feature Arc, 【PaRADEiS】, HEAR, and ClearVeil (as a guest). Then, color踊る指先 -俊 BIRTHDAY EVENT- (color Odoru Yubisaki -Shun BIRTHDAY EVENT-) will take place on 2010-05-21 at 池袋 (Ikebukuro) RUIDO-K3, and will feature Arc, MoNoLith, DANGER☆GANG, and Dali (guest). A special “secret” DVD will be distributed at both events.

⑦ To celebrate their upcoming single, Dali is sponsoring four events under the name パルスプラス4アカデミーズ (PULSE PLUS 4 ACADEMIES). The first two will be at 池袋 (Ikebukuro) RUIDO-K3 on 2010-04-10 and 2010-04-11. The final two will be held at 心斎橋 (Shinsaibashi) FANJ-twice on 2010-04-24 and 2010-04-25. A different present will be distributed at both pairs of lives.

⑧ Finally, シンディケイト (CINDYKATE) will sponsor an event to celebrate their upcoming CD. メトロポリスは今どこに?! (METROPOLIS wa Imadokoni?!) will take place on 2010-05-01 at 渋谷 (Shibuya) LIVE HALL aube shibuya.

[Archived] Dali Community
I've been running the Dali community at LiveJournal since 2006. For any of you who haven't seen it before, I'd like to invite you to join if you're interested in Dali, シュガーフォークフル (SUGAR FORKFUL), or ロットマン (LOTMAN).

For those of you who are already members, I just completely revamped the community! It has a new layout, new userinfo, a new icon, working archive and tag sections, and the ability to post polls. So please go check it out and let me know what you think of everything!

[Archived] Flyers
I was browsing the OHP and discovered that UCP posted some flyers on the "Artist News" page for some of the bands~!


Finally, if I'm not mistaken... I believe they have removed VAGERKE from the main artist page. But I'm not entirely sure. I can't remember if they were there or not ^^'

[Archived] New Releases!
Arc and ClearVeil finally have updated pictures at the UNDER CODE OHP. See Arc's here and ClearVeil's here.

Arc is turning 6 years old, and, to celebrate, is releasing a new maxi-single! コントラスト (CONTRAST) will be released on 2010-04-14 in two types. The A type will contain a DVD with live clips of 「Lady」&「Gentleman」 and Drop outer. The B type will include a bonus track.

Dali has a new look, which can be seen here. Looks like ZORO's vocalist wandered into a photoshoot where 12012 tries on カレン's (KALEN's) old baggy suits. But hey, they may look like 12012, but we can all hope they won't sound like them!

④ After over a year with no real releases, Dali is finally releasing a new CD! Maxi-single トリコロールクロール (TRICOLOR CRAWL) will be released in two types on 2010-04-07. The A type will contain a PV, while the B type will include a bonus track. Yay!

[Archived] Dali
I've refrained from posting Dali news, since there were constant updates for a while. But now that everything seems to be over, here goes!

① As of today, サキ (SAKI) is no longer a member of Dali. From their 2010-01-11 revival oneman and oneward, Dali will be a four member band.

② ロットマン (LOTMAN), the solo project of Dali vocalist 苓 (Ren), held its first live earlier today. The band's maxi-single, UNTITLE, was sold there (a little more than a week before its official release). Attendees could also purchase a live-limited one track CD for 500 yen (the title of the release was not announced). Attendees who stated at the entrance that they were there to see ロットマン (LOTMAN) also received ロットマン特製コメントCD (LOTMAN Tokusei COMMENT CD). Lastly, anyone who bought either a) the maxi-single and live-limited CD or b) three polaroids was allowed to bring a camera and have a picture taken of themselves with 苓 (Ren).

③ The cover of ロットマン's (LOTMAN's) maxi-single UNTITLE was revealed through Dali's mail magazine. It can be seen here.

④ The lineup of ロットマン was revealed, but it seems that the support musicians may be switched out in upcoming lives.

I just scanned some UNDER CODE flyers and thought someone else might appreciate them, even though they're not recent ones. The first is a double-sided Dali/Megaromania flyer and the second is a double-sided ClearVeil/Dali flyer. Enjoy!

[Archived] New Band for Ren
① Dali's rest period began today, so 苓 (Ren) started a new, temporary band for the meantime. 苓's (Ren's) temporary band is called ロットマン (LOTMAN), and they already have a maxi-single planned. More details can be found at the Dali LiveJournal community here.

① One year after Phantasmagoria's disbandment, their label-mates at UNDER CODE will hold a special memorial event for the band (← official description). 関西日本制圧2009 ~memory of Phantasmagoria~ (Kansai Seiatsu ~memory of Phantasmagoria~) will feature chariots, ネガ (NEGA), 平成維新 (Heisei Ishin), Arc, Dali, ClearVeil, Megaromania, and a special opening act, ファンタスローディータカフミ❤HAPPY BIRTHDAY BAND❤ (PHANTAS-ROADIE TAKAFUMI ❤HAPPY BIRTHDAY BAND❤). The special band will feature TAKAFUMI (ex-Marvelous Maiden), SHAGRATH (ex-Aikaryu/IRODORI), Tak (ex-Ansinomy), Hina (Villain), and Matoi (ex-Phantasmagoria). There will also be a large session at the end.

② The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION download site, UNDER GROUND MUSIC will be available at the following address on June 1st:

③ 平成維新's (Heisei Ishin) new OHP can be accessed at its new URL:

④ ネガ (NEGA) will release a digital download-only single, Nameless alice on 2009-06-01 when UNDER GROUND MUSIC opens. Their first full album, GRAVE OF THE SACRIFICE, will be released on 2009-07-22 in two types (one with a bonus track and the other with a PV). The privilege for buying them from the UNDER CODE NET SHOP is a special DVD for each type. They will hold two oneman lives to celebrate the release: FUNERAL OF SACRIFICE ~大阪空葬志願者~ (FUNERAL OF SACRIFICE ~Osaka Sorasou Shingansha~) on 2009-07-26 at OSAKA MUSE, and FUNERAL OF SACRIFICE ~大阪埋葬志願者~ (FUNERAL OF SACRIFICE ~Osaka Maisou Shingansha~) on 2009-09-13 at RUIDO K4. A special CD will be distributed at both lives. A new flyer with all of this news can be seen here.

⑤ Megaromania also has a new flyer up here. It brings good news: three new singles and three live events to go with them. evil, holy, and deus will be released on 2009-07-15 with two new tracks each. The three events will all be held at Takadanobaba AREA: evil and invitation on 2009-07-20, Holy the Bible on 2009-07-21, and Imperial the deus on 2009-07-22.

⑥ SIVA's 2009-05-21 announcement is just a special live event. On the day before their final oneman, the "SIVA with UNDER CODE PRODUCTION family FINAL EVENT" (← again, official wording) will be held. Prediction from a prophet:Code -FINAL- will take place on 2009-07-24 at Shibuya O-WEST. Many UNDER CODE bands will appear alongside cocklobin and a large session at the end.

⑦ ClearVeil will be releasing something new as well, but I'm not sure what yet. In any case, they're holding a three day event to celebrate it. Voice to remind you of awake will be held on 2009-08-29 at OSAKA MUSE, 2009-08-30 at Nagoya HEART LAND, and 2009-09-11 at Shibuya O-WEST.

⑧ Dali is releasing something, but I'm not sure what it is either. KISAKI has mentioned that it's something important, so let's hope it's a good important. Anyway, they're holding an event and a oneman show to celebrate its release. The event, 偏執狂的悲観的方法 (Henshitsukyouteki Hikanteki Houhou), will be held on 2009-08-28 at Meguro ROCK MAYKAN. The oneman, エピローグ溺死体 (EPILOGUE Dekishitai), will be held on 2009-09-06 at Shinsaibashi FANJ-twice.

⑨ P.S., small pictures of ネガ's (NEGA) and Megaromania's new costumes can be seen at Brand X.

[Archived] Outfits
① SIVA's picture at the UNDER CODE OHP has been updated with their new look. See it here.

② Dali is holding a photography session today for their new look. A small cell phone picture of their new look (which reveals absolutely nothing except a top hat and a crow) can be seen here.

[Archived] Dali/SIVA
① Dali will be sponsoring a new event on 06-27. The even is entitled TOUKYOU SUMUSUMUMURIKU MELLOW and is to be held at Shinjuku RUIDO K4. The lineup consists of Dali, SIVA, Secilia LUNA, Ashe', JIGORO, ALSDEAD, Lupo Label, and M. (Anyone know what that bit in the middle of the title means?)

② Unsurprisingly, a SIVA best album will be released before they disband. It probably won't be worth buying for most people since SIVA already has two best albums, but it at least includes a new song, gaNeza. Details are below.

④ Also, SIVA's page at UNDER CODE has been updated with comments from the members about their disbandment. I can't really say what the comments say, since I don't know Japanese, but hopefully someone will kindly translate them. View the members' comments here.

[Archived] Nihon Seiatsu Update
① [From KISAKI's blog] 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.

(KISAKI has already stated that the DVD's won't be for sale anywhere. Pretty mean to us foreign fans, huh?)

[Archived] Dali's New Costumes
Dali's Official site and MySpace were recently updated to include the band's new costumes!

They are viewable at the following links:

The UCP Homepage has yet to update Dali's page with the new look, however. The staff updates rather lazily~

Posts from 2008

[Archived] More News
Lots of updates! Let's start.

① New pictures for Arc, ClearVeil, E'm ~grief~, and SIVA at the UNDER CODE OHP. Also, there's now a special page for 水風船 (Mizufuusen).

② Details for UNDER CODE's 日本制圧2009 (Nihon Seiatsu 2009) have been announced. It will feature 11 shows from 2009-03-01 to 2009-03-15, with a tour final sometime after. Details regarding the tour final are being kept secret for now; they will be revealed on 2009-01-21.

③ A new UNDER CODE omnibus has been announced. The "UNDER CODE PRODUCTION SUPER COMPILATION ALBUM" is called The End of Missing and will feature 11 old, remastered songs, plus one new song from G.O.L. (G.O.L is a special project featuring GORI of bands@id and KISAKI.)

④ Arc will release their first full album, 【F】face, on 2009-03-25. It will apparently only come in one type (which is good!).

⑤ Dali will release a new mini album, mind stripper, on 2009-03-25. Like Arc's release, it will only come in one type (thank God). Details haven't been given, but, based on the release's price, it will probably feature five tracks and no PV.

⑥ Megaromania will release a new single, APOCALYPSE, on 2009-04-01. There will be two types of the release. Both types will feature the title track plus a differing second track.

[Archived] Outfits and Recordings
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.

② [From Dali's blog] Recording has begun on a upcoming single by session band 水風船 (Mizufuusen). The single (mentioned in a previous post) was composed and produced by KISAKI. It just so happens that he's doing the bass for the recording as well. The lineup of musicians featured in the recording differs from the ones who actually play as the session band live: KO-JI and 俊 (Shun) of Arc were, of course, involved in the recording, but 旬奈 (Shunna) of Dali was involved as well (and, of course, KISAKI).

③ [From 尖's (Saki's) blog] ClearVeil have recorded a new PV! Like most of UNDER CODE's PV recordings lately, it's not clear which song was featured, and it hasn't yet been announced what kind of release the PV will be featured on.

④ [From KISAKI's blog] KISAKI has said that a big update will be made at the UNDER CODE OHP on the 21st of this month. So if Christmas isn't exciting enough for you, at least there's that to look forward to!
[Archived] More Nega, Plus Arc and Dali
① [From the UNDER CODE OHP] More awesome news for ネガ (Nega) fans: the band will be releasing two brand new singles next year. There are no types, every song is new, and the tracklistings are already announced. Pretty cool! There's also an official privilege; those who buy both new singles at the same time will be eligible to receive a special DVD of some sort. No details regarding the DVD have been given, but more information will be available in the packaging of the CD's themselves.

② [From the UNDER CODE OHP] Dali will be sponsoring a new event called pain paint collection on 2009-02-13 at 心斎橋FANJ-twice (Shinsaibashi FANJ-twice).

③ [From KISAKI's blog] Arc will be holding a "triumphant return" two-part oneman live on 2009-02-22 at 生駒RHEB GATE (Ikoma RHEB GATE). The event is being called N・A・R・A, and the first half will start at 15:30, while the second half will start at 19:00. In his blog, KISAKI said that each part will be different, so fans should attend both!

④ [From KISAKI's blog] One of the staff at UNDER CODE, Staff N, will be having a birthday celebration event! The event will take place on 2009-02-07 at HOLIDAY OSAKA and will be called 暴走天使 ~Birth of "N"~ (Bousou Tenshi ~Birth of "N"~). The event is to feature Arc, Megaromania, and 平成維新 (Heisei Ishin), along with session bands DHaRiM (comprised of members from ダリス (Dhalis), M, and MaRiLL, all Planet CHILD Music bands), T.K.F.M. (featuring (Takafumi), Zodd of ゾディア (Zodia), 静-siz- of ネス (Neth), and 陽悸 (Youki) formerly of Madieduor), and 水風船 (Mizufuusen) (an ongoing session band that features KO~JI of Arc, SAN of ネガ (Nega), ケエト (Keeto) of Dali, and Ray and 優 (Yuu) of ネガ (Nega)).

⑤ [From KISAKI's blog] Arc, Dali, and (Nega) fans take note: According to KISAKI, 水風船 (Mizufuusen)--the session featuring members from those bands--will be releasing a special CD at the 暴走天使 ~Birth of "N"~ (Bousou Tenshi ~Birth of "N"~) event. The CD will be limited to about 100 pressings and will be for sale only at that live. Pretty cool though.

[Archived] Dali, ClearVeil at B@ndsaid

Back from a week of car wrecks, I bear good news for Dali and ClearVeil fans! If you are a regular at , 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.

It contains information regarding their releases, but in microscopic texts.

I'll let you all know if I find a direct feed/link to the PV previews.

[Archived] New Looks
① Dali and Megaromania have new looks. Both can be seen at Brand X: Dali and Megaromania.

② Obviously, that means that those bands' upcoming releases (as well as the upcoming releases from chariots) are now available for preorder at Brand X.
[Archived] Release Info
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.

② Notes! That post was super long. ClearVeil's releases have disappeared from the new release page, but I'm sure it was an error; hopefully tracklistings for those will be up soon. The new covers of the (Heisei Ishin) and (Zodia) releases are awesome. Arc's releases are always announced with some sort of typo, always; Rular will most likely be changed to Ruler by the release date. Luckily, SIVA already fixed their typo; it's now Liberalism instead of the earlier libelalism. It's weird that some two track singles cost 1,365 yen and some only 1,260. It's awesome that Dali is releasing their first full album (and chariots may as well be!). The tracklisting to those releases isn't available yet, obviously, but I'm listing the releases because they haven't been mentioned in this community yet.

[Archived] Homepage Soundbite Updates + Arc&Dali
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!

Arc: Sono Kokoro (Previously Ito no Kane)
Nega: Reminiscence (Previously Soul cry)
chariots: 13 Python (Previously Doku)
ClearVeil: Shinja ni sasagu ou (Previously Lapis~Ao no yuuutsu~)
Megaromania: Raincarnation -Rinne Kisou- (Previously God of Megaromania -Junketsu no Kokuin-)
Zodia: Doukoku (Previously IN THE DARK)
Brodiaea: Nise -fake- (Previously Carcass)
Lamina: -Anael- (Previously Fukyou Waon)

Sadly nothing new yet for Siva, E'm ~grief~, or Heisei Isshin, but keep an eye out!

② Arc and Dali will be participating in a new Omnibus album sponsored by! The Album is called BARKS Visual Bloom, and it will be available in select stores on 7/18, and on the iTunes Store on 7/23! For those who buy it in stores, you'll get a special sticker sheet! Brand X and ZEAL LINK will also be distributing a special DVD if you purchase from there... sounds like something to get your hands on if you are an Arc or Dali fan! The bands will be contributing the follow tracks:

Dali 「イタミワケ」~ ITAMIWAKE
Arc 「発信履歴」 ~ Hasshin Rireki
[Archived] New Band, Release News
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.

② Of course, the band already has two releases and a few live events planned. Their first live event, held on 8/25, is called Outbreak of war and will be followed by a two-day event on 9/20 and 9/21 called THE FIRST HOLY COLOSSEUM -2 DAYS-. Release information is below:

Edit: Well, it's not the five month release campaign that I was expecting (there's still time guys!) but chariots will be featured in a coupling CD with Versailles. One that is live-distributed only. Start crying now~ Anyway, the title, tracklisting, and number of tracks are unannounced as of now, but it WILL feature new songs. The CD will be distributed at Osaka BIG CAT on 09/13 during the chariots × Versailles live event ART OF "Propaganda".

Edit: Jesus, remind me to go through the entire UCP site before making any updates. The stuff below is allll new:

④ SIVA, as expected, announced new releases finally. This time it's three new CDs, and, of course, there are a few live events to accompany them. On October 10th they'll be holding a oneman live entitled ZERO. But before the oneman...:

⑤ Dali and SIVA will be holding a two-day coupling event in September called art / smash (the second day happens to be my birthday! sweet). Both bands will "headline" I suppose, but there will be several other bands playing as well. Additionally, there will be a Dali × SIVA session band playing at the event.

⑥ I forgot to mention before that ClearVeil's profile page has been updated with their new look. As has SIVA's.

(Anyone have information on the other members? I can only recognize one Anjyu' guy by face, so maybe there are more? Hopefully more info will appear soon~)

[Archived] Release Information, News
① The UNDER CODE OHP was updated today. Anjyu' has formally been moved from the main page to the disbanded section.

② Cover art and tracklistings for the upcoming Dali and ゾディア (Zodia) singles are up. (Have any of you been following KISAKI long enough to recognize the Zodia cover? Adeus, someone?)

③ Tracklistings for upcoming E'm~grief~, Lamina, and Megaromania releases are up.

④ ClearVeil, Megaromania, and Phantasmagoria will be participating in an upcoming omnibus entitled Visualy[zm] The Cure Century. The omnibus will be released on 2008-07-09 for 3,500 yen, and will contain 22 tracks in total. The product number is CYCV-1001; the omnibus is being published by some company called センチュリー (CENTURY).

[Archived] News: New Releases through iTunes
As of May 8th, select UNDER CODE PRODUCTION music is available for purchase of iTunes. It's the first time that UCP has offered digital downloads and I highly recommend purchasing something if you are at all interested; strong support will probably encourage KISAKI to make more available, and it's a LOT cheaper and easier (the iTunes store takes credit cards as well as PayPal) than important CD's or even buying them in Japan. To make the deal a little sweeter, the offerings are iTunes Plus releases, which means that they are basically free of DRM and higher in quality without costing more than normal releases. It's pretty cool, very much worth the small price. Here's the info of what is currently available:

Untitled Single
  2008-05-08; 1.98 dollars; Digital Single
  01. Glass No Album
  02. Michi-Shirube
Phantasmagoria -
Untitled EP
  2008-05-08; 2.97 dollars; Digital EP

  05. Dali / Hoshikuzu

Again, please support this if you can!
Purchase KISAKI PROJECT feat. JUI - Untitled Single
Purchase Phantasmagoria - Untitled EP

Edit: reminded me that I should specify this: the downloads are not limited to iTunes Japan or anything like that, they are readily available for purchase through the normal iTunes store. The prices are in dollars, there is no weird process to go through, just purchase the songs like you would any English artist. (You can use the links I provided to make it even easier!)

[Archived] News: Releases
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.

[Archived] News: New Band
① Maybe this is old and I'm just crazy, but according to the Deshabillz page at the UNDER CODE OHP, the new UNDER CODE band is called Megaromania. They will be holding a twoman live with Deshabillz on June 1st.

② Also, Dali has added a tenth live to their 'nine' live series pulse plus 9 academies. The new live is special because it is also a twoman live with Nega. It will be filmed, and those who attend the live can get some sort of credit (towards buying whatever the footage will be released on I'm assuming? I'm not entirely sure).
[Archived] News: Dali, hurts, Kibou-YA©, Siva
① The tracklist to Kibou-YA©'s best album has finally been posted at the UNDER CODE OHP. The tracklistings (and covers, in Siva's case) for hurts' and Siva's singles have been posted as well.

② Dali announced a three month consecutive release campain through the UNDER CODE OHP today. The releases are basically following the format of ClearVeil's upcoming releases; singles with two new tracks each, and no PVs or additional content. Details are below:

I'm sure you're all already hurting for money, but get ready for your wallet to hurt even more :D UNDER CODE has added four more releases to its already sizeable list.

● Codomo A [コドモA]: Two new Codomo A releases have been announced through Brand X. Please see 's post for more information.

● Dari [ダリ]: My boys are finally back! I've been secretly saving up for a few months, anticipating some fall releases, and it seems they've lived up to that expectation! Two CDs, and--just like Siva and Arc--a PV will be released. Look behind the cut for full info. Oh, and they've got a new photo, which features 5 members. I know one of them must be Kalen's drummer, but I have no idea who the other is. Any help figuring it out is appreciated! (New picutre is under the cut)

[Archived] News ⇔ ダリ
Yay! I was checking KISAKI's journal today, and he's made another entry about Dari. Again, all I can do is Babelfish the hell out of it, but the important part of the entry seems to make complete sense. It may be completely wrong, but here's what I've been able to make out:

"Dari complete revival!?
The complete revival of Dari has been announced. It will be held on 8/12 (Saturday) and 8/13 (Sunday) at Osaka HOLIDAY UMEDA. It will be a sponsored 2DAYS event, and everyone must come. I will announce more details soon. [...] By the way, the last live of 'H.N[maigo]' will be held on 7/28 at HOLIDAY UMEDA."

Assuming that this is correct, it means that Dari will finally drop the name H.N[maigo] and continue activities :D! For those of you that actually have some understanding of the Japanese language, and are super excited about correcting me, here's the original entry:

最近俺様の近所に引っ越してきて周りをちょろちょろしてる(笑)HOLIDAY UMEDAのブッキングマン浅川君も合流。
8.12(土)&13(日) 大阪HOLIDAY UMEDAです。
俺はUNDER CODEの所属バンドの中で旬奈さんにだけは「さん」を付けて呼んでいる。
ちなみに「H.N[maigo]」のラストライブは7.28 HOLIDAY UMEDAだよ。

[Archived] News ⇔ ダリ
So uh, anyone up for a bit of translating? I was browsing KISAKI's blog, and found an entry titled 「ダリのメンバーとミーティング!?」 (Dari no MEMBER to MEETING!?) [Dari Member and Meeting!?]. Unfortunately, the title is all I can make out xD. It seems to have something to do with the reason for Shunsaku "leaving," and more information about their revival. But uh, I'm just using online translators, so who knows. Entry is under the cut for anyone who cares or wants to give it a try.

昨日はライブ前なので個人リハーサルに籠ったあと、頭痛が酷かったから病院に行き、事務所業をバリバリこなした後、ダリの苓、ケエト、旬奈と一緒にミーティングも兼ねて食事に行った。 ダリもメンバーの失踪や色々次々に問題がたて続けに重なったんだが残ったメンバーと俺は一日も早い大復活に向けて頑張ってるから復活を期待して待っててくれよ。
飲みすぎで頭痛がするのか何か分からないけど今日のBIG CATのライブも頑張るよ。

[Archived] News ⇔ ダリ
Just a little bit of news for you ダリ [Dari] fans (and I'm glad that I can make that word plural without worry xD)! I finally completely updated my ダリ [Dari] fansite, so it now has all the information that is available. At this point, all I can add is translations and graphics (icons, wallpapers, etc.). I'm really happy with it, and have been whoring it everywhere. But just for those of you that don't know about it and are curious, here it is:

ダリ [Dari] Fansite

Also, over at Tonberry, I uploaded their discography. I also included the discography of シュガーフォークフル [Sugar Folkfull], their former band. Hopefully this will generate more interest for both bands, and gain them some new fans. Anyways, here's the link:

[Archived] Dali pausing activities
It was reported on the Undercode blog today that Dali will be pausing activities for a while. Here is the message:

Starting today, Dali will pause activities.
It was decided lives are done according to schedule by H.N[maigo] name. *this line doesn't make a ton of sense, this is the best I can come up with.*
Please wait for a complete revival.




Just thought I'd pass this info along.

[edit] I changed my translation a bit thanks to the information from . Thanks!

[Archived] New band pictures!
The UNDER CODE OHP updated with photos of their two new bands today! They're really awesome; especially ダリ. pashya looks nice, but their costumes seem like カレン-2 to me. I dunno. Judge for yourself!

Check out the sexiness! Their costumes remind me of 12012, sans the black, and with more duct-tape material. I like the shiny, and for those of you that enjoy staring at the packages of Japanese boys, you'll be happy to know that ダリ is providing.
They look really good as well, but their costumes seem to be rip offs of カレン's recent style. Also, the picture itself doesn't seem to be as professional as the ダリ photo, although it definately has more of an atmosphere.

[Archived] Ruephy-Alive - Caribbean
As you all know, Under Code has signed 2 "new" bands to themselves (though neither are really new at all). The first is ダリ (Dari), but they're really just a re-born シュガーフォルクフール (sugar for/lkfull). The second (and the one this post is indirectly about) is Pashya. They are four of the five ex-ルフィー嬋命~Ruephy-Alive~ members (the fifth one I guess didn't make the cut... ;-;). So, seeing as how Pashya is releasing their first single on 2/15 called 優白な聲 (Mashiro na koe; Superior white voice), I figured I'd hook you guys up with some ルフィー嬋命~Ruephy-Alive~ to promote their new single!

I've like Ruephy Alive a lot since they released this single... but I always thought they could use some polishing. And who better to go to than Under Code! Anyways, here's their single~ Caribbean.

ルフィー嬋命~Ruephy-Alive~ - カリビアン (YSI)

They really have a strong, unique sound and I hope they retain a lot of that into Pashya!

[Archived] ダリ and pashya
the new undercode band ダリ is not this one: (official site) (visunavi)

but this one, which has 3 ex シュガーフォークフル members:
vo - 苓 [ren]
gu - ケエト [keito] (formerly カオル [kaoru])
gu - 竣作 [shunsaku]
and 2 ex シュガーフォークフル support members:
ba - ユウ [yuu]
dr - 龍也 [tatsuya]

pashya is:
vo - 朋 [tomo]
gu - 秋都 [akito] (ex mebius and ルフィー嬋命~RUEPHY ALIVE~)
ba - 聖 [kiyoshi]
dr - 零也 [reiya] (ex イナズマ and ルフィー嬋命~RUEPHY ALIVE~)

so シュガーフォークフル fans should be happy :D i certainly am :3

also, i do not believe that ネガ [nega] or カーマ・シェンジン [karma shenjing] are joining undercode... just because kisaki is producing and releasing cds for them doesn't mean they're on his label unless he says they are. he produced cds for other bands such as visage and se'ikspia and those bands never joined his label either ^^;;
[Archived] (Untitled post 2005-08-30)
I haven't heard anyone announce it yet, so here's a bit of awesome news for you guys! KISAKI announced in his journal that UNDER CODE has signed two new bands! First is ダリ [Dali/Dari]. They've been around for a little while, and from what I hear, are pretty good. The second band is Pasyha, who I haven't heard anything about yet *laugh* They'll make their first appearences as UNDER CODE bands on 11/3 at Bayside Jenny.

Here's a translation of the announcement from KISAKI's journal:

●The first UNDER CODE National Tour has been decided.
On 11/3 at the first show at BAYSIDE JENNY, the new bands Dali and Pasyha will make thier debut. From now on please welcome them to UNDER CODE.

(Thanks to Jaxomy for the translation!)

[Archived] Huge Updates + Release List
As you all know, 2005 has been a great year for UNDER CODE PRODUCTION (and a horrible year for our wallets). Well, it looks as if 2006 will be an even better year for UNDER CODE, and several releases have already been announced. Please check out the list, as all of UC's artists have several releases planned (Some of which haven't been announced until today). (To clarify, 12012, 秘密結社コドモA, カレン, KISAKI, 音鬼, -Phantasmagoria-, and ヴィドール are all on this list)

Upcoming Releases

12012 has two albums planned, both of which will be released on February 01st. The first of these is a best album called not obtain+1, and will contain 10 tracks. One track will be a completely new song, while the rest of the tracks will be rare-ish songs from their live only CDs and various omnibus CDs. The second album will be called PLAY DOLLs, and will contain 10 completely new songs. There will be two versions--A type and B type (KISAKI's such a sneaky bastard isn't he!). The A type will contain a PV for a song from the album called "icy~cold city~." The B type of the album will come with a CD with one more new track. More information as it comes.

秘密結社コドモA (Himitsu Kessha Codomo A) will be releasing three mini-albums, along with a bonus CD that can be obtained when you buy all three. The first album will be called 再放送+予告盤 (Saihousou+Yokokuban) and will contain five tracks. It will be released on December 07th. The second and third album will both be released on January 25th of next year, and will contain five new songs each. Their titles will be オトコノ個 (Otokonoko) and オンナノ故 (Onnanoyue). Buying all three mini-albums will entitle you to a special present of some sort, which hasn't been decided on yet.

カレン (Karen) has the most release planned at this point. Later this year, on December 14th they will release a DVD entitled mellow~創の旋律~ (mellow~Sou no Senritsu~). No other details about it are available yet. They will release three CDs in the first two months of 2006. The first will be a best album entitled primary song memorial~奏の旋律~ (primary song memorial~Sou no Senritsu), and will have a release date of January 18th. The second will also be a best best album, and it's title will be primary song memorial~想の旋律~ (primary song memorial~Sou no Senritsu~). It seems that カレン is playing word games with the titles of the albums and DVD, but someone who knows Japanese will have to figure out what they're trying to say. After releasing the two albums, they plan to give away a CD at live shows on four dates. Those dates are February 19th, 21st, 26th, and 27th. The CD will be entitled プラウド (Puraudo) and will most likely contain only one track.

KISAKI is next jump on the release-bandwagon, and seems to really have a love for photobooks. His first collection of photos comes out on October 19th of this year, and will be named a basement Melody 2.... It will include 30 full color photos (and 60 pages in total), and a free CD with one unspecified track (a new KISAKI PROJECT song perhaps?). Apparently, he already knows it's going to be a hit (the UNDER CODE site seems to suggest that demand for the book has been huge), and has already announced his second photobook, which will be called a basement Melody 3.... It will be released on December 15th of this year, and will come with a bonus DVD of the making of the photobook. (And no, as far as I know there has never been a a basement Melody 1...)

音鬼 (OTO-ONI) has only one CD planned this month, and it was released a few days ago. It's official release date is October 12th, and is entitled (Koku). It contains four new tracks. This is good news for 音鬼 fans, as they hadn't released anything in quite a while.

-Phantasmagoria- has several releases planned (which isn't surprising) and are taking advantage of all the forms of media available to them. First they're releasing a single on October 19th (the same day as KISAKI's first photobook) which will be called 未完成とギルト (Mikansei to Guilt). It will contain only two tracks, but will come in two versions; A type and B type. The A type single will include a bonus DVD with a "MEMORIAL LIVE CLIP" of their tour "TOUR#2「NEO ARK」." The B type will also include a bonus DVD, but this version will have a "MEMORIAL LIVE CLIP" of their tour "2nd concept TOUR「NEO ARK」." After that, Their PV DVDs must be selling really well, because they already have a third one planned! The new PV DVD will be named 幻影像III~for degradation crowd~ (GeneizouIII~for degradation crowd~). It will be released on December 14th, and will come with an eight page booklet. The DVD continues their tradition of releasing two PVs at a time; one will be for "NEVER REBELLION," and the other for "未完成とギルト" (Mikansei to Guilt). The very next day, on December 15th, they'll release their own photobook called 幻影グラフティー I (Genei Grafitti I). Like KISAKI's photobooks, this one will contain 30 pages of full color photos, and 60 pages in total. The number on the name seems to imply that -Phantasmagoria- anticipates making another photobook, so keep your eyes out for news of that as well.

ヴィドール (Vidoll) is last but certainly not least on this list. First they're planning to release a maxi-single, which has a street date of October 26th. It will have the strange title of Chocoripeyes, and will include only two tracks. Then ヴィドール will be joining KISAKI and -Phantasmagoria- and releasing their own photobook on December 15th. Like the other two photobooks coming out that day, it will contain 30 full color photos and 60 pages extra, but will also come with a free CD of some sort! The title of the photobook will be Back of 『AI』lids. Then will be the first UNDER CODE band to release a CD in 2006. On January 01st their new five track mini-album called Deathmate will be released. In keeping with the recent trend, it will come in to versions; A type and B type. Each type will sport a different jacket, as well as a different bonus DVD. The A type will include the PV for their recent single "シャットダウン," (Shutdown) and the B type will include the PV for their upcoming single "Chocoripeyes." When both versions of the mini-album are purchased, a special present DVD will be included, which will contain a making of clip of "シャットダウン" (Shutdown). According to the UNDER CODE site, the mini-album is being released in celebration of ヴィドール's upcoming one man tour "TOUR 2006-「Reload to living doll」."

Omnibus albums are also planned for release. First is SHOCK WAVE CD the SELECT, which is the next installment of the famous omnibus series. It will contain some of the best tracks of the series, and will features songs from 12012, カレン (Karen), -Phantasmagoria-, and ヴィドール (Vidoll). The omnibus will be released on October 25th. Then UNDER CODE will release the next installment of its omnibus series, "High Style Paradox." The new CD will be entitled High Style Paradox SPECIAL ~RARE TRACKS COLLECTIONS~. It will be released on November 09th, and will contain around fourteen to fifteen tracks total. The UNDER CODE website describes it as a second press of "High Style Paradox IV~re acceleration~" with a different jacket and "rare tracks" from KISAKI's favorite bands. So far ネガ (Nega) and Zephyr are the only non-UNDER CODE bands that are known to be on the CD, but expect more information on the actual tracklist soon.

ダリ and Pasyha haven't announced any upcoming releases yet. I suspect they'll announce something with their debut during UNDER CODE's Japan-wide tour, so keep an eye out for these guys!

Well that's it. This took me a looong time to write up, so I hope you at least scanned over it all! If you have anything to add or correct, please let me know! I'm sure I made mistakes (especially with CD names xD), so any help is appreciated. Also, if anyone could explain the word-play in the titles of カレン's new CDs, I'd be really greatful.
