the:Ø's Hiroya will Depart

the:Ø's Hiroya will Depart
the:Ø's guitarist Hiroya announced to depart from the band next month.

the:Ø just formed a few months ago and already has to deal with the departure of one member. In the official statement they explained that after various conversations they came to the end that the:Ø and Hiroya can't continue together.

Hiroya posted the following official comment:

As you can read in the announcement, it has been decided that I will leave the:Ø on January 23rd.
When we started being active as the:Ø I knew absolutely nothing but the members and everyone around me helped me a lot and for me it was the first time to release a proper CD. These were days full of fun and only new experiences.

But during that time I realized more and more that the music I want to make and the things I want to do are different from my current path. So I decided to depart.

I'm sorry for the sudden announcement. We will give our very best at every single live as five member band until January 23rd, so please treat us well.

American Label "Razor & Tie" Signs Crossfaith

American Label "Razor & Tie" Signs Crossfaith
Crossfaith has signed on to a prestigious American label, "Razor & Tie". The label is known for artistes such as All That Remains, Chiodos, Hatebreed, Protest The Hero, The Pretty Reckless and Yellowcard.

Both Ken of Crossfaith and Mike Gitter of Razor and Tie recorded their comments on the official press release:

“We are thrilled to announce that we're signed with Razor & Tie. We think they are the most exciting and challenging label in the western music industry nowadays. The fact that we're going to work with this label partner allows us to showcase our infinite creativity to the music scene. Plus, we're playing at the Van’s Warped Tour all next summer, which is insanely great news for us and our fans! We're simply ready for "our" future!"

Ken of Crossfaith

"From the first time I saw Crossfaith devastate a stage in the U.S., I knew I was seeing something insanely special. They were a collision of riffs, imagination, electronics and an anime-like tornado of intense energies few bands possibly approach. The new music coming from them takes it to a whole new place in terms of sonic innovation and songsmanship. Get ready to check your skull,"

Razor & Tie Senior
Director of A&R
Mike Gitter

In addition to this announcement, it was revealed that Crossfaith will be playing at both Van's Warped Tour and Australia's Soundwave Festival. The band will also release a new album in 2015.

Congratulations, Crossfaith!

REDRUM TO DISBAND

Sad news for RedruM fans: RedruM will disband after their live on February of next year.
The reason for their disbandment seems to be differences in the bands direction. Probably a little bit of good news in this announcement is that guitarist Kaname, who had announced to leave the band after their December 15 live, will continue to play along with the band until their final live on February 27 at Ikebukuro BLACK HOLE.

FIXER´S BASSIST WILL DEPART AND RETIRE

Fixer´s bassist Makoto has announced to depart from the band. His last performance with the band will be after their live at Shinjuku RUIDO K4 in January 14th.

The reasons are that the image of a bass player doesn´t fit to its current outlook, so he decided to stop all musical activities and retire.

This reason seems to be a little ridiculous but it didn´t surprise me in the actual visual kei scene. A couple of weeks ago Sala from BFN gave the same reason for his deparure. I dont´t know if there is an extra official reason for it but this is Makoto´s decision.

SID'S AKI TO GO SOLO WITH 1ST ALBUM

 AKi himself has announced on his official facebook page the start of his solo career, and has even announced the release of his first album! The title of his first release will be "ARISE", and will hit the stores on January 28, exclusively through TOWER RECORDS stores and website. The single, FREAK SHOW, shown on the video released a few weeks back will be available for free download.

His first solo live has also been revealed, with the date set for February 3 at Tsutaya O-EAST, named "A Feeling Begins to Arise." Tickets go on sale on January 17 and will cost 5500 yen.

As a big SID fan, I can't wait to see what kind of music AKi will bring to us! Back when SID was a full-fledged Visual Kei band, he was always the "dark" one of the band, so it'll be interesting to see if he'll bring back that dark image with his new career, or show us something completely different. Either way, you should all keep an eye on him!
