chariots live

If you recall, during chariots' final tour, RIKU announced that chariots would be resuming activities during 2012 rather than disbanding as originally planned (...). Well, no major announcements have been made yet, but the band's first live in 2012 has been announced.

chariots will take the stage in April to celebrate previous support drummer 兼継 (Kentz) as he retires from music. This live, SELFISH DREAMER with DEAR FRIENDS, will presumably take place over two days at unspecified livehouses in Tokyo and Osaka. No other details have been announced.

I thought that RIKU had announced chariots would be reviving as a full band, but it seems to still be a solo project: the chariots lineup for that day features RIKU and guest players guitarist シノ (SHINO, ex-SCISSORS), bassist 迅 (Jin, ex-UnsraW), and drummer 鈴音 (Suzune, ex-AND).

      Very interesting... nice to find some proper definite news about them now. A bit confused by it being a solo project though, as you said, most people thought chariots would be a full band... but I guess with Lin continuing now as well after their very short hiatus, a solo project makes more sense... and the line up, well that's rather odd too... Oh well, matter not... still looking forward to what they do :D

      Yeah, I have no clue. It doesn't help that RIKU apparently hates talking: “chariots. Revival.” Wow guy, really informative blog post! Thank you!
