Okay readers – I need your honest opinion about this next story. Seems like there is a new twist to this group, normally groups like this are in the pop field but these guys are considering themselves visual kei. Their name is VKB428, which stands for Visual-kei Boys Shibuya (428 stands for Shibuya). They are a 7 boy group and so far it seems they are not done yet adding members. There is an audition section to their home page.
Their producer is Seiji who is the main vocals for SAMURAI BALL and has also been in projects like AGE-OF-EP, AcQuA EP and Club ACQUA. The other producer is Yoshinobu Toida who has done music for X Japan and Glay. Apparently this all started with an audition of over 2,000 guys and they select these 7 intial members.
The group will be broken up into 3 sub groups. V-team which will be the main guys, K-team which will have the sub guys and B-team which will contain the replacements. They had their first live on August 21st and were joined on the stage with familiar faces – Yugiri and Kazami of DaizyStripper. VKB428 are scheduled to hold another live on September 25th.
So what do you think? Marketing gimmick or do you like the idea? Opinions please. I think this project won’t last very long ><; Source: TokyoGraph
