Pink Tribal

Pink Tribal 1

How many session bands stay together for more than one live? And how many session bands make something of a career out of being one?

Not many, we’ll tell you — but things have just started looking more serious lately for long-time session band, Pink Tribal. Pink Tribal is an interesting mix of musicians, from high-profile visual artists of the past to currently-active band men. As a session band they’re only known to play cover songs at their lives and have no releases. Despite this, an official website was opened at the end of November and the band members themselves have been drawing increasing attention to its web presence. Is something in the works? Only time will tell.

Let’s meet the band.

Vocals / Noise: 狂華 (Kyoka) (ex-Aliene†Ma’riage)
Vocals: Chaos (Qualia)
Guitar: Kyoki (ex-Secilia Luna)
Guitar / Bass: Kazumi (Cheval Noir)
Bass: 秀暁 (Hideaki) (ex-DAS:VASSER)
Drums: You-ya (VABeL, NUMBER MOUSE, ex-La’Mule)
 
Kyoka, the undeniable leader of the unit, has been performing in unnamed session bands for quite a long time. However, the band finally took on the name Pink Tribal in March of 2013. As is the nature of session bands, members have changed in and out, but with an OHP and an established lineup, one can only wonder if this will turn into something more than a session.

One interesting aspect of the band is that rather than one static look, the unit apparently switches between two very different styles.

Unfortunately, the relatively-new website has little to offer fans aside from the rich band member photos. Its design is sleek and its content, promising — there is a section reserved for discography, though there is currently nothing published there.

Edit (Jan 9): Chaos has kindly brought to our attention the the band plans to introduce new songs at its next live, on February 6th. Stay tuned for updates!

There are a couple of upcoming chances to catch the band live. As a session band, we can’t presume that opportunities will be plentiful considering the members surely have other projects and jobs to attend to.
