Hey folks! Boy, it feels like I just saw you all yesterday. Oh, wait – I did. But now I’m back for another round of Ask Ernie! This week’s question is about a few different band members, courtesy of reader Jeremy:
Can you tell me the name of Heisei Ishin, Noah’s new band please? Also can you tell me the name of the band that the singer of Dan Paradeis is in now?
I sure can, Jeremy! First, we’ll start with YUKKIE and ライ (Rai) from 平成維新 (Heishi Ishin)/N@H. These two talented members are currently in GIGAMOUS on guitar and drums, respectively. You can check out current YUKKIE’s blog and Twitter; Rai’s are here and here. GIGAMOUS is about to start a 3-month consecutive release series beginning with the release of 「プラトニック」 (Platonic) on June 4th. 「東京」 (Tokyo) will follow on July 9th. They’ll also be embarking on a one-man tour this autumn, making stops in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya.
September 27th @ Osaka RUIDO
September 28th @ Nagoya HOLIDAY NEXT
October 25th @ Shinjuku BLAZE
As for Mashiro, the singer of お遊戯ゎが魔々団×【PaRADEiS】 (Oyuugi Wagamama-dan x PaRaDEiS), later simplified to Paradeis, he’s now the vocalist in VOW. VOW is celebrating their first anniversary this month and will be holding a commemorative one-man show at Ikebukuro EDGE on June 15th. He is also joined by ex-Paradeis 聖 (Sei) and 瑠希 (Ryuki). You can listen to some of their songs on Soundcloud.
It’s a bit late, but I hope I finally answered your question, Jeremy! And for all of you folks out there with questions to ask, keep ’em coming! Ern’s got a lot of time on his paws this summer.
