Z looks like your drunk personality-disorder aunt, but he sounds great!
This single will be released on June 20th for 1,000 yen at HOLIDAY SHINJUKU. However, sales are limited to lives-only, so this may be a bit more difficult to find if you're interested in collecting their discography. The silver lining, however, is that since it is being sold at shows, rather than distributed freely, it will be available until copies sell out.
Additionally, the band will have their first birthday live entitled "目黒月下雷鳴(meguro gekka raimei)" at Meguro Rock May Kan on August 9th. :cake_emoji:
I assume this means that Jin will focus activities on

SHOXX POSTER MAGAZINE #7 features
The official release date is less than a week later: February 24th, and the price is set for ¥1,620 for three tracks.
(With the recent announcement of the dissolution of Art Cube, I wonder if Shape Shifter and Moi Dix Mois are going to be more active? 3 bands is a lot to handle, especially for a vocalist.)
As you can see, the single only has two tracks, the title track, plus 闇裂く羽 (yami saku hane). Again, the single is only available to order at the DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE webshop and at the band's live event.
What do you think? Personally, I'm so hyped for this! ♥
Now shortened as 「C」, and with the same lineup, the band will perform as guests at the ROCKSTAR RECORDS presents event, 大激突, alongside ROCKSTAR bands
Additionally, the band also announced the release of their first single, "Raimei" (雷鳴). This single will be distributed through DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE's webshop on October 14th, but no other details about the single have been disclosed. There is also a chance to purchase the CD early by getting it at their show on September 30th, at Shibuya Club Asia.
The band started out as a session known as 悪魔鬼茶(akuma kicha), which only makes this situation more confusing as that was one of DEViL KiTTY's (the old one!) first releases.
