It wouldn’t be a true summer without a mysterious new band popping up, giving us something to look forward to in the next coming months.
Chanty is a brand new band that will have their official start on September 16th at Ikebukuro EDGE, with their first oneman live, 「終わりの始まり」 (Owari no Hajimari). Tickets to the show cost 3000 yen, and go on sale July 27th.
With the name Chanty, I know I was expecting a nautical theme. However, the band’s concept is “piercing music”, and this is the image the band has presented:
But don’t worry, the members are actually some favourites, who have jumped back into the scene.
