substitution is by no means a replacement of the original – if you hate us, we love you –

the Underneath give their Thanks

Japanese rock band the Underneath will say their goodbye’s on March 3, 2010. The band has decided to disband but not without releasing one last single for their fans.

The band released a message to all their fans a week ago on their Myspace:

To all the fans and everyone supporting the Underneath

the Underneath will break up on the live show at Shibuya O-West on May 3, 2010. Though the band formed on January 1, 2008.

Thank you for supporting all of our activities lasting for 13 years and the activities of the Underneath up to now.

a final tour will be performed in appreciation for all of our friends of the fan.

theUnderneath LAST LIVE TOUR 2010 ” LAST SCENE “

We are so grateful for all your support and we hope to gain your kind understanding.

I will announce the tour later.
thank you,
the Underneath members

The new suddenly shocked all their fans, making MASATO feel like he needed to say a few words of comfort:

To everyone who supports us,
We, the Underneath, announced the other day that we would break up.
We have discussed many times.

I read the messages from everyone.
I’m so sorry that we disappointed you.
And I’m also so proud that we are supported by such wonderful fans.

We’ve overcome no matter what happened, so if we break up, we’ll never
forget that attitude.
I want to tell you that we never give up whatever we are going to be.

We are grateful to all the fans supporting us through MySpace all over
the world.

Thank you.


Their last single will be released 2010.3.17 and is titled “Diamond.” The single will only be available in Japan, no plans of an overseas version has been announced (though I wouldn’t put it past them to make one.)

I am really sad to this band disband… once again. I love them as Transtic Nerve from years ago and to see them disband is a real shame. They are awesome live and even such sweethearts. At least they got to be on U.S. soil and tour here in 2008. Only a handful of bands can say they really toured the U.S. One of the few Japanese rock bands I really enjoyed. Bye-bye.

If you happen to be in Japan in the next couple of months, I suggest you try and see them before they disband.

V-Rock Fest. = The best reunion

la'cryma christi

If asked three years ago if I’d expect La’cryma Christi to make a comeback, I would have said, “Hell no!

Well I was wrong; apparently the band will be reuniting for the V-Rock Festival on 10/24. Now that doesn’t mean they will continue activities. The reunion is only for the V-Rock Festival, depending on the fans reactions will determine whether or not they will continue after the event.

What is the V-Rock Festival? It’s a visual kei event sponsored by Sports Nippon. It is a two day event which will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba.

Honestly with a line-up like this, I’m tempted to go just for the two days to see half of these bands. I honestly didn’t know that half of them were still around either.

If you want to go, you can get tickets via their website. They have an international page for people who don’t read Japanese. (V-Rock Festival)

The line up:
10.24 – Saturday
abingdon boys school
alice nine
ali project
Doremi Dan
La’cryma Christi
Marilyn Manson
Moi dix Mois
Ninja Man Japan
Plastic Tree
Tune Factory (SHOXX band)

10.25 – Sunday
Duel Jewel
exist trace
The GazettE
Toshihiko Takamizawa (w/ band members: gt. Rook Takamura/ANCHANG/KOJI)
Anna Tsuchiya
The Underneath
