As of today (2016-07-04), Cain has changed his name to Hinagiku Hina (雛菊 雛) and officially joined Kebyo (仮病) as lead guitarist. (Former lead guitarist Hanada Ichiyou (半田 ヰ夂葉) has moved to secondary guitar.)
You might recall that Cain has actually performed with Kebyo before: Keybo with Cain (仮病 with Cain) appeared as the opening act at Dead Children's 2016-03-18 oneman at Ikebukuro (池袋) RUIDO K3, and at Kebyo's first sponsored event, Kebyou 1 (仮病1), on 2016-06-26 at Ikebukuro (池袋) RUIDO K3. So, I'm sure this move has been planned for a long time (and that the other members of Dead Children were in the loop).
Since Kebyo (仮病) isn't related to UCP/KISAKI in any other way, I won't follow them, but I wish Hina/Cain lots of success!
king zeebra is supporting a new project: NEXT.R. NEXT.R is a time-limited project comprised of Riddle=Dect members fumi and Rem. Their first live is on 2016-05-27 at HOLIDAY OSAKA.

Since they're not UCP related, I won't really cover them, but I thought I'd mention it!
