[2015.04.24] Yosuke_twitcast

Yosuke: I wanna do a radio show ( ゚д゚) But I don’t like the sound of my own voice (´・_・`)

Yosuke: TwitCasting, huh ( ゚д゚) How do you use TwitCasting?? lol

Yosuke: I see. I kinda get how to use TwitCasting. Maybe I’ll give it a try either tonight or tomorrow ( ゚д゚) Sorry if I don’t do it (^ω^)

Yosuke: If a lot of people want me to do it, I’ll do it. If a lot of people don’t want me to, I wont ⊂((・x・))⊃

[Blog] Brand-X Staff Blog (2015.03.28) – “ALSDEAD In-store Event”

ALSDEAD, In-store Event♪

March 28, 2015

After releasing their single, INAZUMA, on March 11, ALSDEAD was the first group to host their event today (●⌒∇⌒●)

They cosplayed today!! Yosuke dressed up as a high school teacher and Maki, Shin, and NIKKY were all students!! We also counted the audience members as students and started everything with teacher, Yosuke’s, orders of “Everyone stand, attention, bow!” (*^▽^*) [T/N: Japanese students typically start class with greeting this teacher in this manner]

Maki, Shin, and NIKKY were all transfer students so they had to give a self-introduction and state which clubs they wanted to join. (^∇^)

After answering questions from everyone, they played a drawing game (^○^)
The categories were “Colonel Sanders,” “People Who You Think Are Hot,” “Black Telephone,” and “Titans from Attack on Titan.”
The audience was the judge.
And the results were…???

Thank you to everyone who came out today as well as the band and the staff ヽ(^◇^*)/

ALSDEAD’s upcoming schedule:
4/5 Toshimakoen (tickets are currently on sale at this store!!)
4/17 Ikebukuro EDGE
4/23 Ikebukuro EDGE
There are many other lives and events coming up! Please see ALSDEAD’s official HP for details!!

[Blog] ALSDEAD – NIKKY (2014.06.08) “details leading up to my joining”

2014-06-08 23:14:00

details leading up to my joining

I’m pretty sure those of you who are reading this have some kind of interest in me

So I thought I’d write about something a little deeper

It’s something I’ve never mentioned before


From when I was just a support member up until I actually joined the band, I’ve heard a lot of different “voices”

“ALSDEAD doesn’t match NIKKY”

“Nikky doesn’t match ALSDEAD”

“You should play metal, not visual kei”

“I don’t want someone from GALEYD to join”


As long as there are those who support me, there will also be those who criticize me
It’s really important for me to know what kind of opinions people have about me
I’ve thought about it alot on my own as well
I got a lot of invitations before deciding to join ALSDEAD

It’s not like I decided to join ALSDEAD right away
I just always put ALSDEAD first.
I had a lot in common with the different members both music-wise and outside of music so being with them felt very natural.

I wasn’t able to decide right away

Would I really be a good addition to ALSDEAD? Would it be good for me?

When I was with GALEYD, I played a lot of lives with ALSDEAD and saw them form their band image over the years.
What would happened if I joined that?
I thought about these things over and over and over and over…
I talked with the members of ALSDEAD a lot, and they said that I was really important to them

I thought… with these guys it would probably be fun, right?

And one night, called Maki

And said:

“I want to join you guys”
From then on
It was more like I was creating the new ALSDEAD together with them rather than trying to fit in with the old ALSDEAD

The rebirth of ALSDEAD has only just begun

This is still just the prologue


Let’s move forward together

[Blog] ALSDEAD – Maki (2014.05.23) “Important Something”

Important Something

2014-05-23 23:01:25

important something


Yesterday at the studio, I realized that there are still a lot of things that are lacking in ALSDEAD.

NIKKY and Yosuke are going beyond my expectations on the song we’re working on

After the studio, I went home and rearranged the song some more with Shin

Doing that, I felt a sense of moving forward that I haven’t felt before

It was a new sensation

I can’t really put it into words

But it feels like it’s something that’s necessary for the band ⊂((・x・))⊃
