Lots of exciting news for MUCC!
MUCC will be releasing their new single as we mentioned both here and here on the 9th June, which also happens to be *”MUCC’S Day”!
[*The number 6 is “roku” in Japanese but can also be read as “mu”, and as the number 9 is “kyuu” it can be shortened to “ku” to be read as “69” = “mu ku” i.e. “Mukku”.]
Along with their single release on this special day, the band will be holding an event 『ムックを捜せ！』 (Find MUCC!), where fans can search for MUCC both at the event in Shibuya and virtually.
To take part, all fans must purchase the First Press edition of the single 『約束』 (yakusoku), which will enclose a an I.D. card with a number/code that they will need. They then access the “MUCC Day” website either through their mobile/cell phones or through their computer. There are then 3 methods in which fans can participate:
01. Find MUCC in “real time”
This event in Shibuya will take place on the 9th June, starting at 6pm and ending at 9pm, where fans search for MUCC and find stamps to stamp on their sheet.
02. Find MUCC “virtually”
Using your PIGGS (avatars) on Ameba blogs, you can find the MUCC member’s PIGGs in the virtual Shibuya in the Ameba world and collect their special “keywords”.
03. “Reccommend” MUCC
With each member now part of Twitter as we mentioned here, if you send them a “nice” (interesting, funny) comment you could be chosen!
Those who participate and apply will be entered into a lottery where they could recieive an invitation to take part in the shooting of their new PV on 12th June! It will be at ‘Palette Town’ in Odaiba, where the lucky chosen fans can go see a free gig which will be used in the music video.
For more information on this amazing event, see their official “MUCC Day” website.
Whilst not forgetting the band’s autumn tour as we mentioned here, they are busy taking part in 3 more upcoming events;
01. 『NEXUS J-ROCK GOES TO THE WORLD』 on the 6th June at the ‘NEXUS STUDIO COAST’ in Tokyo, along with bands 葵 (aoi), ＬＣ５, ギルガメッシュ (Gilgamesh) and Plastic Tree. Tickets for first floor standing are now on sale for 5,250yen. To buy them and for more information, see here.
