Schwarz Stein Returns; Kaya Unleashes Femme Fatale and Gothic Elements

With every new beginning comes…another new beginning?

Remember when we told you about Schwarz Stein’s one-day revival live this coming March? Well, it turns out it’s for a bit longer than a day, much to fans’ pleasure and surprise.

Kaya announced on his blog that not only would the dynamic duo be restarting band activities officially – they are also releasing a new single this April! 「GEBET-ゲベート-」 is set to release on March 26th, only available at lives, ZEAL LINK stores throughout Japan, or mail order. It’s priced at 2300yen and contains several tracks, including “lapis lazuli” and a 2014 version of “RISE TO HEAVEN.”

Schwarz Stein even be holding an in-store event in commemoration of the release on April 20th at Shibuya ZEAL LINK. The event includes a talk with the band as well as a CD signing.

Your only chance to see them live right now (and snag a copy of 「GEBET-ゲベート-」 early) is on March 23rd at Shibuya REX. Tickets are 4000yen advance. The show promises to be a good one, so don’t miss this rare opportunity!

That’s not all Kaya has planned for 2014.

For his 8th year of solo activities, Kaya has embarked on a new journey, and it is called Femme Fatale. The band, currently shrouded in mystery, only has two members announced so far: Chargeeeeee on drums and TaNa on guitar.

In addition to several lives in the works – including a run with amber gris in their nationwide tour – Femme Fatale is already planning to release their first single (title TBA) on May 28th.

    This makes me so so so Happy and excited!!!!

    This is what Kaya and Yo from Matenrou Opera wrote on Twitter 24th of Feb:
    “燿たん昨日はありがとうー!!新バンドFemme Fataleでご一緒できること楽しみにしておりますわ〜!○(≧▽≦)○ @opera_yo 昨日はお疲れ様でした!隅々までKayaさんの世界が表現された素敵なライブでした☆(*´-`)”

    If I’m not mistaken there is a possibility that Yo will be the basist. Or did I perhaps get it wrong?

      “Yo-tan, thank you for yesterday!! I’m looking forward to being able to do the new band Femme Fatale together~! ○(≧▽≦)○ @opera_yo Good work yesterday! It was a wonderful live that expressed the far reaches of your world ☆(*´-`)”

      It sounds like it!

    I’ve already seen “Femme Fatale”, this lineup played at Sendai Macana (as Kaya’s backup band). They are fantastic and really work well togehter. Can’t wait to hear original material from these guys!
