I really hope this is not a bubble like S.K.I.N!

Idk I’m not feeling the chemistry. Too many big creative personalities clashing here.
Feels like a cash/clout grab. Especially with the fact that they had to do a fucking press conference to announce it instead of just dropping a twitter post like a normal band. How extra do you have to be :rofl:

or just those live dates

So they kicked Gackt out from SKIN?

BTW, tickets for Japan are 15,000 and 22,000 yen regular, 32,000 and 100,000 VIP

This feels like fake news

Wellllll, this is a lame band name, lmao.

By the way you can hear/see about half a minute each from the two announced songs in this stream of the press conference if you skip to 18:05. As expected, they sound very stale and safe.

They’ve also confirmed that they’re working fast on their debut album which should come out before the tour starts next year (I’ll believe it when I see it :joy: ).

Add Gackt there and you have THE CRINGE ROCKSTARS

Well, they are too big of personalities regardless is how one might feel, so dropping a tweet is something that nobodies would do or somebody younger than 40 who are not close to the “icon” status. So I kinda get their move.

Terrible band name, simple/lacking flier design. Oh, let the yoshikiness commence.

So they have continued the tradition of bad band names. lol

10 years ago I would have been super excited about this project but the history of S.K.I.N (and Yo$hiki overall) made me be careful. Also I’m not happy about Hyde as singer as he went downhill in the last few years imo (Also Red Swan was not my cup of tea).

This time we will receive a single beforehand which is a milestone if we compare it to the history of S.K.I.N - I’m curious but not yet excited. :smile:

I would be surprised if we got a single thing out of these guys. Talk is cheap. Releases are eternal.

notice the VIP content of the Japan gigs.
just trash :joy: you don’t even get a meet and greet

With so many egos you can not have a strong artistic direction. You just go with something diluted and just try to sell.
