As some of you readers might have noticed, the site has been a bit stagnant lately. As such, we have fallen behind on updates for a few bands.
Therefore, this shall be deemed Black Gene For the Next Scene: The Grand Update!
First, the band is releasing not only their first album, but also a new maxi single.
The maxi single, “CHANGE TO CHANCE,” will be released on July 24th. (There’s an exciting bit of news with this in an upcoming article, so stay tuned!) It will be released in two types.
Their first album is titled 「Dance to Rave ～脳内シェイクなsong達～」 (Dance to Rave ~nounai shake na song tachi~). It will be released in three types on August 28th.
Details on both the album and maxi single have not been released yet; check back in a few days!

Aside from all of these releases, events, and tours, Black Gene has finally set up an official blog!
You can visit it here.
Finally, a bit of fun news.
As I’m sure a lot of you already know, fans at Japanese concerts like to do what they call 振付 (furitsuke), which roughly translates to “choreography.” Usually, the fans will create it themselves or improvise based on cues from the band members. Black Gene, however, has set their own rules for the game by making their own furitsuke videos!
First up, we have 「桜乱トランスdestiny」 (Sakura ran trance destiny)
Then we have 「獄彩夢」:
If you’re planning on going to a Black Gene live in Japan, don’t forget to practice, practice, practice!
