LEZARD

Old meets new! LEZARD is bringing a whole new different kind of take of visual kei in their upcoming single, 『ハナサカジンセイ』 (Hanasaka Jinsei).

『ハナサカジンセイ』 (Hanasaka Jinsei) appears to be inspired by 「花咲か爺さん」(Hanasaka Jiisan), a Japanese folk tale about an honest elderly man who can make withered trees blossom. If you’re interested in the tale, you can read a summary of it here! But in the context of visual kei, let’s see what the “Hanasaka” life is all about to the members of LEZARD. Here are comments made by the members themselves (translated by our very own staff member, Shannon):

LEZARD LIME
Vo. 来夢 (lime)

We want to live on in your hearts for ten years, 100 years, 1000 years.
We want to be a band that won’t change no matter how much time passes. We’ll remain the same.
That is the dream I sang.

LEZARD Kousuke
Gu. 公佑 (Kousuke)

This is LEZARD’s little taste of “wa”!
This song allowed us to prove the existence of our thoughts and dreams.
It will no doubt change the winds that blow in our lives!
Hyuckhyuckhyuckhyuckhyuck!

LEZARD TACC
Ba. TACC

This song shows everything that LEZARD is!
The coupling song gives you a peek into a completely new side of us that makes the single a really voluminous CD!
You need to listen to it a lot and hear it live!

LEZARD Natsume
Dr. Natsume

This single displays LEZARD’s uniqueness, as well as a new side of LEZARD that hasn’t been seen until now.
Let’s use this song to make beautiful flowers bloom!
