I'll try to write something...


Art Cube have a new logo, as seen on the new flyer + keitai cleaner above (new merch from today)

As for the live, I.... don't really know what was going on ^^; It took place at AREA (finally. They hadn't done a live there in ages. It's a great livehouse). There's no gap between the stage and the audience, so unless you're standing a couple of rows back, you're too close to have a good view of all the band members at once. There's always someone blocking your view of someone else. Fortunately the three AC members who can move, moves a lot more now than they once did. So we got the chance to "say hello" to all of them. And the setlist this time was all "Let's see just how much headbanging we can do in 3 minutes" kind of songs, so we probably spent half the live not even looking at the guys on stage f^_^; But at least we had tons of fun :D Both Seiji and Nobu seemed to be in a really good mood; Seiji took the time to smile to all of us in the front row personally at the end of the set. Yossy seemed less nervous than usual, Shizuki was looking down most of the time, so we couldn't really see his face well. Kazune was his normal cool self. And, they didn't have any technical trouble (that I noticed anyway). Let's hope it'll continue this way from now on. I'm tired of their setlist being shortened to three songs D:

Setlist:
1. 虹化鏡 (kougekyou)
2. False praye (the one with all the Brain Hacker furi; hearts & saku for the chorus)
3. 瑠璃雨 (rurisame)
4. 失楽蝶 (shitsurakuchou)

No time for an MC. Maybe just as well, cause Rem made a return :D And it's during the MCs she tends to start strangling her owner. Don't want to ruin her chances of Seiji bringing her to the live next week. She actually behaved quite nicely this time.

This being a fairly small live, I was surprised at the amount of foreigners there. Several of them seemed to be there for Art Cube (^_^) Hopefully they'll spread the word about the tour (I met several European Art Cube fans at Moi dix Mois' live this Sunday who had no idea they were going abroad  >_> The band needs to figure out exactly when and where soon, so that they can make an official announcement.)

Got a great ticket for the band's sponsored event in September; they were doing a presale tonight. Don't know how much the ticket numbers will matter as this is a three-man, but the staff girl seemed eager that I got a good number, so I'm glad I did. Art Cube's staff is extremely nice and helpful, so you should definitely try and talk to them if you're at a live.


@flist: sorry about not commenting on your entries this past week (>_<) I've been really really busy.

@mrs_fujiwara: I'll reserve my ticket for the 28th in the morning :) Didn't want to do it before tonight's live, as having two reservations in at once makes it more likely that they'll mess up and forget to add my name to one of the lists ^^;

They might team up with another band or two to make sure they'll draw a decently sized crowd, but I'm sure the lives will be small and personal enough anyway. I went to some of Versailles' European lives; they're a lot more popular than Art Cube, and the lives were still pretty intimate.

All they've said is that it'll be in October. Seiji is performing with Moi dix Mois in Japan on October 24th, so chances are it'll be before that.

Don't worry! And I am glad you had fun.
I know there's a new album/single that will be sold during their Europe tour or something. But do you think they'll have it for these concerts or just in September? There's a Brazilian fan interested on it. :-)

I really hope he'll bring Rem next week as well, so that you'll get to see her ^^

The only place the album will be sold within Japan, is at the sponsored event in September. Though you'll probably be able to find it at Closet Child too eventually.

I'm not too fond of acting as a shopping service...

But the single is already up for preorder in some web stores, and I'm sure most stores will have it up once the release date gets closer, so it would probably be easier to simply buy it from one of them?

Holiday CD has it already: http://holiday-cd.blog.players.tv/article/30141858.html
Not sure if they ship overseas or not. But Guruguru or Brand-x might get it later.

I'm anxious to hear this unreleased song, specially if it remember a Brain Hacker's one ♥
I'm happy they're using REM again, I was wondering if they will bring her to the Europe live (s) it would be fun. xD

I loved the new logo, thanks for showing it to us !

and thanks for another report ♥

It would certainly be fun for the fans, but I doubt they'll take Rem with them to Europe. Bringing a giant reptile with you can make traveling between various countries rather difficult. And I'm sure it would be stressful for the animal too.

It's nice that they'll play some of their unreleased songs outside of onemans, even if it doesn't happen that often. Hopefully they'll release them all once they've finished their tour. (And I just remembered which song they played at this live. I'll add it to my entry)

yes, agree with you, and if they having some troubles with her in japan, after a long travel, and with all the stress I think she only will cause more more troubles... ;-;

Oh! that's false praye, we have a sample for this one, I like it, but for these ones my favorite are the untitled one, hope they release all these tracks soon, and with a better sound quality than rurisame/kougekyou :\

and your user-pic are just amazing *__* can I ask you where it is from? xD
