Today at midnight THE BLACK SWAN, which was previously announced as Jin (ex-Nega’s) new project, saw a major update to its website. It looks like the band is getting ready to kick things off with a tour in place of a first live beginning June 6th.
And while the rest of the band seems to be decided without a doubt, there’s no official announcement just yet about who these mystery members are. Yet, we have an introductory video, a revealed look for vocalist Jin, and full tour dates to look forward to!

Needless to say, further details are not yet available, but at least Jin has been kind enough to get the dates out so that fans can mark their calendars and start making travel arrangements!
But that’s not all. There’s an unexplained link included on THE BLACK SWAN’s website with the tour information that points to two other upcoming shows that include the session band TBS…

Right now, we currently know that former Vior gloire bassist Rena will be a member of TBS, and that he is suspected to be a member of THE BLACK SWAN. That said, it doesn’t take much imagination to assume that TBS stands for THE BLACK SWAN, that the vocalist is likely to be Jin, and these two lives are bound to be early, unofficial activity for THE BLACK SWAN before the tour kicks off in June.
It’s not a certainty, but certainly looks that way.
So, Nega fans out there — are you excited? Who do you think the other members could be?
