ex-Vior gloire vocalist shall (シャル) has officially joined FUTURISM・BOYZ as of 2014-11-23!
They've had quite the lineup drama... You'll remember bassist B.B suddenly seceded in 2012, and then vocalist CO- disappeared after being arrested in 2013. In 2014, after continuing as a two-person, non-visual band for some time, shall appeared as guest vocalist, then CO- formally announced his secession and retirement. Drummer Shun (俊) recently announced his new band Ai-collage, so it seemed that F・B would be on the back burner... But with shall formally joining, maybe we'll get some more activity! And, gods willing, a release?!
I assume (for the time being) that remembrance will continue at its leisurely pace, but who knows?
remembrance has announced the details of their first maxi-single, which will be sold only at their live on 2014-10-09. It turns out that the release, rebirth, will feature covers of shall's previous bands (including Vior gloire!) Unfortunately for us, I don't expect the release to be available for ordering online.
remembrance will hold its next event, INDEED...3, on 2014-10-13 at Osaka (大阪) BRAND NEW. shall has further mentioned that they're recording, and he expects to release a live-limited CD some time in October.
