On July 21st, MIYAVI held his premium live, ‘DAY 1‘, at Kinema Club in Tokyo.

For the guest act, OKAMOTO’S took the stage to warm up the crowd. Although tickets were already sold out before their appearance was confirmed, they excited MIYAVI fans with their powerful performance.

Then, MIYAVI and drummer BOBO performed a total of 18 songs for a 2-hour long concert. Because this concert was broadcast live via YouTube, MIYAVI sang straight into the camera, and spoke in English for his fans overseas.

During the encore, MIYAVI revealed that he’s currently working on a new mini-album which is set for release this fall. This will be a part of his collaboration project, ‘SAMURAI SESSION WORLD SERIES‘, that he launched last year.

At the same time, it was announced that MIYAVI will be releasing a photo book called ‘Gekkan Men MIYAVI‘. This photo book will carry the same concept as his ‘SAMURAI SESSION WORLD SERIES’ project. The photos will be taken by “samurai” photographer Nitta Keichi, who was also in charge of filming and photography for this concert.

Stay tuned for more details on MIYAVI’s upcoming releases!

On August 15th, D=OUT will be releasing their new mini album "high collar" in three different versions, where as the so called "Chuuka Version" will include six cover songs, which have already been gathering quite a bit of attention.

Among those songs is Mikawa Kenichi's enka track "Sasoriza no Onna" and the artist had been appearing at the recording studio at one point, when hearing about D=OUT's cover plans.

"It's not a joke when I am saying that they didn't have permission and selfishly started recording." Mikawa said. "However, even though I say they didn't have permission (after hearing it), they have chosen a good song, so I am supporting this!"

"At first I was really nervous, but when Mikawa found a liking for our (version) of 'Sasoriza no Onna' I was really happy." Vocalist Kouki admitted. "I would like to perform together with Mikawa at some point if possible...maybe?"

Who know, maybe this unusual cooperation could really come true...

Somehow, it slipped our radar, but in early June TRIGGAH posted about guitarist AIKA, bassist TAKE, and drummer YUSUKE leaving the band and a subsequent hiatus following. Their last live with their current members is actually taking place as we write this.

The official OHP message is as follows:

Thank you for always supporting TRIGGAH. This year, the single “DAZZLE” was released, and it was a full year of turning points. We celebrated our first anniversary, we had the TRIGGAH-sponsored “BREAK OUT BULLET CHANGED THE WORLD” event, and many fans came. During our progression, we came to a result from talks between the members, and reached the conclusion that Gt.AIKA, Ba.TAKE, and Dr.YUSUKE will leave the band. Along with that, it has been decided that TRIGGAH will pause activities as a band. TRIGGAH was able to stay active thanks to everyone who kept listening, supporting, and loving the band. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. For activities from here on, we will proceed to inform everyone on the official site and also on member blogs, soon. To all of the fans who have supported us this far, we’re sorry to keep you waiting, but please give your unyielding support to the members’ new challenges from now on.

June 2012, unspecified day
