With their new look and lineup changes, it was only a matter of time before we got some more new music out of the reformed BiS (is it even fair to call them reformed anymore? They're almost three albums into this thing already). Titled SOCiALiSM, the group's latest single is a return to form for the classic punk idols, and stands as probably the best thing they've done post-reunion. Hear SOCiALiSM embedded via Dailymotion below (or click here if that doesn't work). You can also pre-purchase the single via CDJapan (basic or deluxe).
BiS has been relatively silent since the release of Re:STUPiD, but in the past couple days they've re-emerged in various ways, starting with that above photo. As you can see, BiS will be back with a dark new aesthetic for their upcoming single (maybe album?). The photo is complete with two new members, minus Aya Eight Prince, as well as some confirmation that Kamiya Saki is indeed back in the group (let's be honest, it's hard to trust any WACK news until we get some real proof).
We recently sat down with idol group callme to discuss their latest single "Bring you happiness". Seeing as we had interviewed them twice before we decided to do something different for this one. Rather than a standard interview, we settled on hosting this one live via our Facebook page and to bring the audience into the interview itself! It was a fun interview that saw the girls answering questions directly submitted by fans as well as asking fans questions of their own! There were lots of really fun, wacky questions towards the end as well and even an English corner! Be sure to check this one out and if you're curious to see the video of the interview itself, it is located at the end of this article. Be sure to follow us on social media for more interviews like this one!
calllme is a three-member idol group that is unique in the fact that they are completely self-produced. They formed early 2015 and have released two albums and four singles. The three members, RUUNA, MIMORI, and KOUMI were former members of the group Dorothy Little Happy. Their unique sound of upbeat pop music has won them many fans around the world. Their most recent single, "Bring you happiness", is the PR song for the Japanese Pallet Association.
BILLIE IDLE isn't the most active group out there, but every time we hear from them it's usually to blow every other group around them out of the water. Today is no different, as the group has released a new MV for a cover of Uchouten's BYE-BYE. BYE-BYE will be featured on BILLIE IDLE's upcoming best-of album, BILLIed IDLE. You can watch the MV below (and let me tell you, this song is WONDERFUL). BILLIE IDLE continues to hold their place as my favorite pop group, period.
PiiiiiiiN, a rock style idol group, announced a couple of hours ago at their live that they are set to disband on 5/5/2017. They had make efforts to get the group popular enough to go to Nippon Budoukan and even held auditions for a new member late last year.
The MV for "Shuttoko Dokkoi" which is on Band Ja Naimon!'s 1st major album released on 3/8/2017, "Kanpeki Shugi na Sekai ni Fukanzen na Ongaku wo♡", was just released yesterday. The song itself is made and directed by Yuyoyuppe, a well known song composer mostly with Vocaloid songs.
On 3/12/2017, it was announced that Hina Aoi would be graduating from DOPING BERRY on 3/30/2017. DOPING BERRY is a group produced by RInahamu (also known as Rinahamu Ichigo) who is known for being in the group CY8ER (ex. BPM15Q) and Strawberry Syndrome. The group just debuted this past summer on 8/10/2016 with their "Yume Kawaii" style seen in many of the groups Rinahamu is involved in.
In Japan it is quite common to be able to talk to your idols 1 on 1 when you go to events like handshake events, cheki events or even just buying merchandise from their merch table. However, as an overseas fan, unless your favorite idols come over, the only way to personally talk to them is by booking that expensive flight to Japan to see them.
But what if you can’t go to Japan? Do you just have to accept your fate of never telling them how much you love them 1 on 1? Do you just type your messages through SNS and hope they’re reading it? Nowadays they have sites and phone apps that allow you to talk to these idols through video chat! In this article, I will introduce 2 sites that I researched for my own sake. (Just in case I’m in desperate need to express my love and get a response)
At A-to-J, our opinions on NECRONOMIDOL have been fairly controversial in the alt-idol fanbase. While they have a unique concept and style, their production quality up until now has been incredibly weak (defended under the guise of being "black metal", though I've never heard any black metal so lacking in punch or grit). With Necroma's latest release, however, they seem to have stepped it up a bit. Is it enough, though?
Here we go again. The recently revived BiS is back at it with their second comeback album, this time with a full lineup of brand-new songs straight out of the SCRAMBLES kitchen. Were Pour Lui & co able to pull out all the stops and top the mild disappointment that was Brand-new idol Society 2, or is Re:STUPiD just another exercise in trying to light a flame that has long been burned out?
