Today in heartwarming news: HEISEI ISHIN bassist/leader Yoshi (善) has announced that his session band--featuring several UNDER CODE PRODUCTION alumni--will perform at the December 9th edition of the Taku (拓) memorial event.
A special event has been announced for 2015-12-10 which will memorialize deceased HEISEI ISHIN vocalist Taku (拓). Several special acts will appear―almost all of which were part of the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION family ❤.
On 2014-09-22, legendary visual kei hair & makeup house Tritt für Tritt will celebrate its 10th(!) anniversary with a huge modeling & live event in Ikebukuro (池袋). After teasing details for the past five months, Tritt für Tritt has finally announced the full lineup of participants in its event―and a plethora of ex-UNDER CODE PRODUCTION musicians will appear!
GIGAMOUS (ex-HEISEI ISHIN~N@H) has shared a sample of their upcoming 2nd single, SCARY GODS SHOW: [check it out here]. They've also revealed the privileges for buying the single from various retailers:
Hi, I am having a major visual kei sale at my sale journal, and I have several UNDER CODE items that some of you might be interested in! ♥CD/DVD:
UNDER CODE entered 2011 in a bit of a transitory state. Megaromania was only half active, NEGA was on hiatus, E'm ~grief~ had just disbanded, Arc and Synside were set to disband, and HEISEI ISHIN vocalist Taku had just died. After having, in my opinion, its worst year in 2010, UNDER CODE started 2011 in a low spot.
Merry Christmas from WE LOVE UNDER CODE! As a token of my appreciation, I've decided to share a small present with everyone. It's Taku (HEISEI ISHIN) singing the Japanese version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. I hope you enjoy ✌
As promised, here's the entry about Taku that I really wanted to post. I also discovered that TAKAFUMI wrote a small entry related to Taku, so I'll post that one first.
Just wanted to post a couple of blog posts about HEISEI ISHIN vocalist Taku's death (December 10th was the one year anniversary, and December 13th would have been his 23rd birthday.)
ライ (RAI) and ユッキー (YUKKIE) announced their new project today: N@H (pronounced “NoaH”)
As you know, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) disbanded shortly after the death of vocalist 拓 (Taku) in December of last year (you can read the whole chronicle here). However, in the past few months, there have been a few developments with the ex-members of the band, which I thought I'd update you all on.
The new UNDER CODE PRODUCTION band has been announced: REALies!
Just a cool bit of news: ex-平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) bassist/leader 善 (Yoshi) is producing a single for Double River Record's new band, ISK;M. Their first maxi-single, ∞~infinity~, is to be released on 2011-07-20. More information is available at the Double River Record OHP.
I forgot to post this, over and over. I'm really sorry that it's so late now.
Ok, the contest to win a free WE LOVE UCP t-shirt is officially closed. Now it's up to you guys to look through the proposed tracklists and vote for your favorite one! Whoever gets the most votes wins! The poll will be closed by Wednesday.
平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) bassist 善 (yoshi) has announced that a public flower ceremony has been organized for 拓 (Taku), who passed away on 2010-12-10.
Most of the members of 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) had announced their new blogs by December 31st, but YUKKIE was slow about it. Anyway, he finally updated, so here's the full list, just in case you want to follow any of them:
Apparently 拓 (Taku), vocalist of 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN), has passed away.
This is HEISEI ISHIN Yoshi's blog post about their disbanding. It was longer than I thought ;_;, but I hope it will help people who cared about (or were wondering about) HEISEI ISHIN and Yoshi to find some answers or plain to move on.
This month, 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) announced their first post-UNDER CODE activities: a series of oneman lives through December called BREAK MY LIFE-SIZE!. However, I never posted about them here because I was waiting until the band announced something more concrete about its future (which label it would be with, what genre it would be switching to, etc.). Well, they finally announced their plans:
It was officially announced the other day that Anjyu' and 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) will both be appearing at the 関西制圧2010~2011 (Kansai Seiatsu 2010~2011) new year event. [But we already knew that], so~
Ok, this is sort of convoluted, but stick with me: remember the new omnibus I posted about this morning? UNDER CODE just uploaded a flyer advertising it. I guess UCP is actually involved with the omnibus somehow (I thought it was just SHOXX), because there's an additional ad at the bottom of the flyer for the 関西制圧2010~2011 (Kansai Seiatsu 2010~2011) event.
Live photographs of several UNDER CODE bands are available for purchase through broma.jp 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.
The 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) best album REVOLUTIONS was released two weeks ago, but UNDER CODE is lazy and still hasn't revealed the tracklisting or web shop privilege online. So here's that information (thanks to an auction listing), just for the sake of posterity:
Visualand.TV has posted two new 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) and 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) live clips from their 2010-07-18 show. They'll be available to watch online until 2010-09-07. (I'll try to rip/upload them for everyone later!)
平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) will graduate from UNDER CODE PRODUCTION on September 30th.
I'm planning a few changes at the community, so please take a second to give me some feedback!
① 凛 -the end of corruption world- (LIN) polaroids: you can now buy one-of-a-kind, signed polaroids of the members. Available types are a group photo, individual photos (except KANATA), and twoshots of RIKU with another member (except KANATA).
As promised, I finally got around to uploading those rehearsal DVDs for you guys. If you don't remember what I'm talking about, buying three UNDER CODE 7th anniversary lucky bags got you eight comment + rehearsal DVDs earlier in the year.
平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) will hold a short oneman tour called Let's flying away restorator!!. There will be four shows: 2010-09-21 and 09-22 at 新宿 (Shinjuku) RUIDO K4, 09-25 at 難波 (Nanba) ROCKETS, and 09-26 at 名古屋 (Nagoya) HEART LAND.
① The 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) guys have had new costumes for a little while, and today they did official photography in them. KISAKI posted a little preview here. And here are some other small previews: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
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.
All of this is old, but whatever, it's cool!
Well, it's official: chariots will still be around. The former band is now officially RIKU's solo project. The project's first live will be on 2010-05-03 at ESAKA MUSE. The live, subculture, is sponsored by chariots and will also feature NEGA and 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN).

A few more details have been released regarding those UCP 7th anniversary lucky bags I told you about.
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 Arc has a new picture up at the OHP. It's the same photoshoot, just a different picture... I guess they realized that the background in the first one had some wonky glare? Anyway, you check out the “new” picture here. (I have the old one saved if anyone's curious.)
Hello http://under_code"; .livejournal.com family~ 平成維新 (平成維新) is releasing a new, two-type single with the concept of “new style.” Each copy will come with one of five trading cards. The band has a new look to go with the release, which you can see here.
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).
(Some of this is old news, so don't give me a hard time!)
① I previously posted this here, but locked the entry since I wasn't 100% sure. But now I am! シンディケイト (CindyKate) is joining UNDER CODE PRODUCTION and already has a release planned. The band's section at the UCP OHP is here, and there's already a sample up!
① chariots officially changed their logo with the release of 光 (Hikari) back on 2009-10-07. (Definitely old news, but I needed to put it somewhere for future reference.)
Details of 首都制圧 2009~2010 (Shuto Seiatsu 2009~2010), UNDER CODE's New Year countdown event, have been released. As previously stated, it will take place on 2009-12-31 through 2010-01-01 at 東京キネマ倶楽部 (Tokyo KINEMA Club). Special goods will be available at the live. The lineup is as follows:
Brand X updated this morning with some upcoming UNDER CODE releases. Some have already been covered here, but two hadn't been announced yet~
① Arc was about due for a new release, so this shouldn't be a surprise~ On 2009-10-28, Arc will release a new maxi-single entitled -「Lady」&「Gentleman」- in two types. The OFFICIAL WEB SHOP privilege will be a DVD containing footage from Arc's 5th anniversary live, 1823日目の出逢 (1823 Hi Me no Deai), which was held on 2009-04-26 at OSAKA MUSE.
I've been pretty lazy, so most of this “news” is somewhat old.
① Go ネガ (NEGA)! If I'm reading this correctly, last night at the ネガ (NEGA) vs. 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) twoman, it was announced that ネガ (NEGA) will be holding a live in Shanghai, China in July! Their first overseas performance.
① Remember how 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) updated their OHP recently? Well, I noticed that the flash file contained some pretty large images of them. I extracted all of the images and uploaded them at MediaFire for anyone who wants them. They're very big and very nice. See the photos here. Use as you wish~
Lots of news today~ Sorry for the flood of awesome.
① Congrats to 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) for reaching #7 on the ORICON indies chart with their single explosion. Oh, also, the PC version of their official site is being renewed. That is all~
① First of all, congratulations to chariots for making to to #5 on the indie ORICON singles chart with ablaze my sorrow.
① For uh, some reason, another date has been added to UNDER CODE's 日本制圧2009 tour. The special event will feature 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) and ネガ (NEGA) in a twoman live/BATTLE! Get ready for a mouthful of a name: 「日本制圧2009 -SPECIAL EDITION-」 -ネガ VS 平成維新 ツーマン公演 地下線霍乱維新党～平成NEGATIVISM～- (「Nihon Seiatsu 2009 -SPECIAL EDITION-」 -NEGA VS HEISEI ISHIN TWOMAN Kouen Chikasenkakuran Ishintou ～Heisei NEGATIVISM～-) will take place on 2009-05-30 at OSAKA MUSE. BE THERE OR BE SQUARE.
① [From [KISAKI's blog](http://ameblo.jp/undercode-KISAKI)] 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.
① [From UCP OHP] 平成維新 (HEISEI ISHIN) will be releasing a new single in two types in April. They're also holding a oneman, 平成people's liberation army (Heisei people's liberation army), at FANJ-twice on 2009-04-17, and a free special DVD will be distributed there. Also, their page at the OHP has been updated: a preview of the song 破片 (Kakera) has been uploaded, and their picture has been renewed (same costumes, different photoshoot).
Lots of updates! Let's start.
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.
Heisei Ishin now has a brand new song on their UCP page called THE BUTTERFLY, which was previously SWIMMY.
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.
Just a bunch of small updates I felt were note-worthy.
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.
