AYABIE : Music for Upcoming film "Enishi"
credits to japannow via source: TOKYOGRAPH
The 4-member band AYABIE revealed several projects on Saturday, including an announcement that they are serving as the music directors of a movie being released during Golden Week of this year. Directed by Kiyohide Matsumura, the film is titled "Enishi" and includes all four members of AYABIE in its cast.

"Enishi" stars voice actors Kisho Taniyama and Daisuke Namikawa, actress Mao Miyaji, and AYABIE members Yumehito and KENZO. The other two members of AYABIE, Takehito and Intetsu, have guest roles.

The story revolves around various people known as "shibito," a term referring to those who have been legally declared dead after being missing for seven years. These "shibito" continue their lives in the shadows of society, each with different purposes that lead them into conflict.

AYABIE is providing the movie's theme song "Melody," which will be released on February 23 as their first single since forming as a new band. In late April, they also plan to release a soundtrack for "Enishi."

To celebrate their single, they are holding several events in record stores between February 22 and March 20. They have also scheduled several concerts in those two months.

In addition, AYABIE will release a live DVD on March 23 that contains their concert on January 6 at Akasaka BLITZ, which was the final show of their "Virgin Snow Color 2nd season" tour.

Gackt : KFC lolz


As of late GACKT and his infamous band "YELLOW FRIED CHICKENz" have been in the news for their astounding "crime" of stealing KFC's "Colonel Sanders".
Moreover, pictures of prove can be found on GACKT's new live DVD release titled "YELLOW FRIED CHICKENz Kirameki Otokojuku Danjo Konyoku Hadaka Matsuri", which will drop in stores in February 2nd 2011.

"KFC's Colonel is like an image of my grand father, so I believe he must be part of our band just naturally."
With this simple yet "absolutely convincing" statement, GACKT had started the project, and plotted his stealing of the colonel eventually.
The success of it can eventually be seen on the DVD cover, along with more shots, including various transformations of the colonel within the booklet of the DVD package.

It’s been more than a year since the release of their last album, “Aurora“, but during the band’s split tour with flumpool, vocalist Mitsumura Tatsuya revealed that NICO Touches the Walls would be releasing their third album shortly.

Other than specifiying that “PASSENGER” will include the band’s latest single, “Diver, few other details were given out concerning the upcoming release.

“Although the title ‘PASSENGER’ can, naturally, be translated as both ‘traveller’ and ’someone aboard some method of transportation’ (in Japanese), we intend to do it our way. So for us, it means ‘messenger,’ someone conveying ‘passion,’” said Mitsumura of the album’s title. “We’ve done so many live performances in the past year and a half… but now that we’ve got our energy and power back, we’re focusing to pour all that passionate zeal into our music. Please look forward to ‘PASSENGER’!”

NICO Touches the Walls also announced on the same day that they would be embarking on a nationwide tour titled “NICO Touches the Walls TOUR 2011 PASSENGER ~We are Passionate Messenger~” in April in order to promote their newest album.
