For a few weeks already, the name of that new band was appearing a lot in my researches, and I finally found their HP a few days ago ! And ヒバリ (Hibari) is not really a new band ! They’re actually all ex-Karakuri members !
Vo. 杏樹 (Anju) (ex-カラクリ(karakuri))
Gt. ユキムラ (Yukimura) (ex-カラクリ(karakuri))
Gt. みか (Mika) (ex-カラクリ(karakuri))
Ba. ひぃろ (Hiiro) (ex-カラクリ(karakuri))
Dr. 竜希 (Tatsuki) (ex-カラクリ(karakuri))
And it seems they’ll start the exact same way as Valluna : with a sponsored event called 『平成憂国デモクラシー』 (Heisei Yuukoku Democracy), on May 28th with the following bands : MaitoreiA / LuLu / PureQ&A / オトガデッド (Otogadead) / SOMATIC GUARDIAN / Ap(r)il / Lilas
And once again, same thing as Valluna, they will distribute their first CD on that same day !

As we talked about back in December, Karakuri has announced that they will be disbanding on March 20th.
As a last release, at their final live they will be putting out four singles:
「グッバイサーカス」 (Goodbye Circus)
「マリオネットパレード」 (Marionette Parade)
「人形革命」 (Ningyou Kakumei; Doll Revolution)
Each single will cost 500 yen and will be available at the livehouse only. Anyone who buys all four singles will receive a memorial DVD as a special present.
機械人形歌劇団カラクリ (Karakuri) announced at their performance on December 6th that their activities will come to an end after their live on March 20th.
Their reason for disbanding is a result of them taking a good look at the way the band was growing, and deciding that in order to continue to progress they need to move on. They say that there has not been anything like a discord between the member’s relationship, or musical differences.
The band hopes that you can continue to support them for their remaining three months of activity.
