Nighmare, Mejibray, and Royz have announced they will appear in the first ever Chinese Visual Kei Halloween Event, 聖夜狂想祭—-Halloween Party, in Shanghai, China. The event will take place on November 1 and will also include Chinese visual band, Lilith. This will be Mejibray’s first show outside of Japan, so this is a huge step for them. Tickets, which include a VIP option, can be purchased here.
As you have probably heard by now, young visual group, LUCHe. was involved in a roll-over car accident on September 4. Details are sparse and scattered, but it seems that all members came out okay without any life-threatening injuries. They will, however, need to take some time off to recover and, between that and damage to their equipment, there is no word on when they will return. Needless to say, upcoming performances have been canceled. I saw a picture of the car and, frankly, it looked horrifying. I’m just glad everyone is okay and wish them a quick and easy recovery.
In more positive news, D.I.D has announced a tentative return from hiatus with a live scheduled for October 5. Called Akane(Re)birthday ONEMAN「Gott ist “DA”」, the live will be held at Takadanobaba AREA and features the triumphant (hopefully) return of vocalist, Akane, who had to take some time off for his mental health. Personally, I am super excited about his return. They have also announced the planned release of their previously canceled new single, Fatal Error Race, but no word yet on a release date.
Kuroyuri to Kage, the reincarnation of my beloved Memento Mori, have opened up their OHP and released their new look! I still just can’t handle their new stage names, though. I mean, check these out:

And a last minute add that just came to my attention this morning and is too frikkin’ good to pass up. New band announcement from ex-AND Eccentric Agent guitarist Kili and drummer Suzune! The band is called Liraizu and they look AWESOME!
