Poltergeist to Return with Full Lineup

Poltergeist

Poltergeist is back! (But, something looks a little different…)

In July, Poltergeist got knocked down to a two-member unit and subsequently ceased activity. Many a visual band has known to crumble and eventually disband under such circumstances, but this time good news has finally come! Just the other day, the band put out multiple announcements for their fans — the most prominent being their restarting activities, and the addition of three new members.

Full details aren’t available yet — the band’s new OHP appears not to be fully live just yet. What we do know, however, is that an official Twitter account was established on October 14th, and an official Facebook followed on October 19th. With their return, Poltergeist also has jumped to label LIZARD NEW upon which they’ll churn out their seventh single on December 18th. Several lives are also planned beginning next month. It looks like the band has been quite busy in their off time!
Let’s tackle these updates one at a time.
 

Poltergeist’s lineup

Vocals 光孝 (Mitsutaka)
Guitar 奏 (Sou)
Guitar 興佑 (Kousuke/Kyousuke)*
Bass キユキ (Kiyuki)* [ex-VAJRA] Drums 狛耶 (Hakuya)* [ex-Ashe’, VARB, NightingeiL, Louder]

*New members. Their blogs are as follows:

*Kou/Kyousuke’s blog has yet to come into existence, it seems, and neither his identity nor the reading of his name has been confirmed at this stage.

 

Poltergeist’s 7th single
XII Stairs
December 18th release

*Details to come at a later date.

 

Though there isn’t much information available about the single or the mysterious new guitarist, it’s still only been a couple of days since the original announcement and we’re certain we’ll see more details soon.
