A little under half a year ago, CELL announced that they came to the decision to put a “halt in…band’s activities“, leaving it unclear whether or not the members will remain active in the scene, or if they will some day start up activities again. For those who hope that CELL will one day start up activities again, we have some exciting news for you! It looks like CELL members Nao and 紺 (Kon) will be performing at AMPLYFI HOLLYWOOD in Los Angeles, California in July for the UNITED MUSIC FEST!

Despite CELL being inactive, it looks like the members are building up quite the hype for the performance. In fact, about a week ago CELL released their first digital single worldwide. The single, “for you…” contains three tracks and is available on itunes for your enjoyment.
The UNITED MUSIC FEST’s lineup is still being worked on! Recently they have announced that Anti Feminism will be joining in on the festivities, and that there are more bands to come! Are you hoping to see more visual kei artists?
