DEAD END fans, Japanese Rock and Visual Kei fans…your tribute album has come.
DEAD END will be releasing a tribute album on September 4th, 2013, featuring TONS of upcoming and famous artists. This marks another milestone in the band’s long career since their formation in 1984, their activity pause in 1990, and their continuation since 2009. It’s no secret that they have influenced an entire generation of Japanese musicians. After their 25th Anniversary Live “Kaosmoscape” at Shibuya Koukaidou last September, musicians and fans alike begged for more. Artists especially have been vying for the chance to contribute to this album, with cries of, “I want to perform ___!” “Just let me be on it!”
Today, the first round of contributing artists was announced.
Kiyoharu (Kuroyume, SADS)
Hitoki (Kuroyume, PIRANHA HEADS, ROBOTS, Dummy’s Corporation, etc.)
Hyde (L’Arc~en~Ciel, VAMPS)
These are pretty big names in the visual kei world. What more could be in store?!
There are five more artist announcements scheduled. Tracklists and cover art have yet to be released, too. So, stay with S-T to keep up!
