Sendai Kamotsu Recovers from Bankruptcy with YouTube Channel, Hits Album, and Summer Tour

On the heels of a similar announcement from The GazettE, Nightmare‘s vocalist YOMI’s “little brother” Igaguri Chiba‘s hardworking band of jumpsuited movers, Sendai Kamotsu, has opened a YouTube channel.

In anticipation of their upcoming 2-disc hits album Sukebest and the accompanying summer tour, the band and their management have built an official YouTube channel to let fans worldwide watch their… entertaining promotional videos – as well as exclusive bonus content – the legal way.

While Nightmare is busy preparing for this weekend’s Japan Expo in Paris, Sendai Kamotsu has been mostly flying under the radar, perhaps still recovering from their rather unfortunate “bankruptcy” back in 2009-2011. Vocalist Chiba, who really bears no real resemblance whatsoever to “big brother” YOMI (really), appeared as a solo artist at Fanime 2012 in California and followed his American debut with a short Japanese tour creatively titled “BITCH BOYS ~forever your love~.” Sendai Kamotsu as an ensemble performed here and there through the end of 2012 and early summer of 2013, but the comeback has been slow to say the least. The opening of their YouTube channel coincides with a long awaited boost in activity from the kitschy sextet.

As for their best hits album, it will be released on July 10th in three editions: two different regular editions and one limited edition which includes the combined tracks of the regular editions plus a DVD featuring the previously unreleased PVs for “チバイズム~手ぬぐいを脱がさないで~ (Chibaism ~Tenugui wo Nugasanaide~)” and “サタデーナイトゲイバー (Saturday Night Gay Bar)” , all wrapped up in a pretty packaging for collectors to gaze dreamily at.

(For those wondering about how Nightmare had fared during the financial crisis, it seems Sendai Kamotsu’s bankruptcy was not felt by the sibling band. From November 2009 to May 2011, Nightmare toured extensively and released two singles, three albums, two DVDs, and a band score, all while poor Sendai Kamotsu’s members presumably struggled silently to make ends meet. Thankfully, YOMI helped Chiba find new management and get back on his feet. That’s what “brothers” are for, eh?)

Fun fact: “sukebe” means pervert in Japanese. Even if you’re not familiar with their music, you can tell from their song titles alone that Sendai Kamotsu are big big fans of such portmanteaus and puns, the humor of which is often, unfortunately, totally lost in translation..
