It’s hard to say this wasn’t seen coming.
Last year, a ragtag group of visual indies musicians put together the unit Silhouette with a catch: the band would dissolve six months after its founding. From September to March they played occasional shows, and concluded just a couple of days ago with a bang — a big live event and an evening after party of drinking with their fans. However, not long after they began activities they announced that they’d have something big to tell everyone at their final live.
The live came and went, and on April 1st they updated their OHP and created a new one to announce a new, permanent band featuring the same members: MAJOLICA. In conjunction with the formation, a brief message was posted to Silhouette’s OHP yesterday.
As announced at the one-man the other day, Silhouette is concluding its temporary period of activity, and will begin genuine activities as MAJOLICA.
Please refer to the MAJOLICA home page.
We would like to ask for your continued, unwavering voices of support.
MAJOLICA, all members
It’s clear that this move has been in the works for quite a while. The band is already with management office Virgin AIR (home to Dear L’Novel and DILIAL, and which also assisted Silhouette), has its “0th” single planned for release in June, and has released new member photos and social network revamps.
The one-track single, 【春時雨】 (“Harushigure”) will be released for a mere ￥540 on June 16th. Though details about purchasing it are currently undisclosed, the reason behind its title of “0th” is that it will be limited to online sales. That could potentially mean good things for overseas fans! We have our fingers crossed for everyone. Just keep in mind that it will be limited to 300 copies, so if you’re interested in being a part of the beginning of MAJOLICA you’ll have to act fast when purchase information arises.
Though the members’ social networks are more or less the same as they were in Silhouette, here are their links once more for reference:
