[Blog] ALSDEAD – Shin (2014.05.22) “Different”



Practiced our demo song at the studio today.

Starting with a rough foundation and then throwing out ideas and trying new things isn’t something we’ve done before, but it was a new and fun experience.

I’m the type to train hard ’til the end, but I realized that doing things a little different allows you to see the world in a different light.

I think I’ll concentrate more on opening up my mind to new things from now on.

[Blog] ALSDEAD – Shin (2014.05.21) “Aggressive”










View of the post-rain scenery from my veranda.

It was such a nice sensation with no wind and clear skies. I wanted to put that feeling into sound so I picked up my guitar.

I thought I’d play some kind of beautiful song, but I somehow started playing something really intense.

No matter how hard I try, it seems that I always end up playing something aggressive.

I wonder if I’ll ever be able to get out of this mode.

[Blog] ALSDEAD – Shin (2014.05.20) “The Same”

The Same









A picture of me and Yosuke from the day of our PV shoot

This time, my outfit is white, the color that I’ve been avoiding up ’til now. I’m really grateful to Wardrobe for creating exactly what I imagined despite the tall order.

And my hair is the color I’ve always wanted: pink.

It took a lot of work, but I really like it. I had them put in extensions too.

I feel like if there were no makeup artists, visual kei couldn’t exist lol

Just like music, it took a lot of time and effort for this look. I hope you guys like it☆

[Blog] ALSDEAD – Shin (2014.05.2014.05.19) “Release”



The PV SPOT for STARLESS, which will go on sale on 6/4/2014, has been released!

This single really is an befitting portrayal of the rebirth of ALSDEAD.

There will also be matching pictures that you will definitely like so look forward to it☆

That said, we’re gonna dive into working on new songs for the release of our next album.

If we’re able to make our passion into the form of an album, I think it’ll be a good opportunity for us to become a more widely-known band.

And of course, we’ll also be putting a lot of effort into different events, so look forward to it!

Make sure to keep an eye out for ALSDEAD☆

Passing Time

With no exhaustion left from yesterday, I spent the whole day relaxing.

I went over the tape and it was definitely a night full of passion.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how this passion will keep on increasing!

Thank you for all the gifts. They give me strength☆

Oh, and we showed the STARLESS PV at the live venue. Did you guys like it?

[Blog] ALSDEAD – Shin (2014.05.16) “Cultivation”




Today we had an offline check for our PV. When we were shooting the video, we had high expectations for what the finished image would be, but the actual finished product shows an even more distinct depiction of what our band and music are.

It shows the new ALSDEAD in a direct way without hurting our image at all.

Keep an eye out for it when it’s released to the public☆

That being said, tomorrow is finally the big day.

I’ve really been looking forward to it. I’m sure all the ALSERs feel the same way.

It’s been difficult, but I believe that we were able to cultivate great strength as a band while exploring the trends of this underground scene.

We’re gonna put it all out on the stage so I want you all to respond with everything you’ve got.

Let’s make it the best time you’ve ever had!

I’ll be waiting for you at TSUTAYA O-WEST☆

[Blog] ALSDEAD – Shin (2014.05.17) “New”




Thank you to everyone you came to ALSDEAD’s JUDGEMENT DAY performance!

This long-awaited for day was able to come to such a happy end thanks to all of you ALSERs.

We made you guys wait a long time, but it feels like the new ALSDEAD was finally able to stand at a fresh start line.

The new member we announced, Nikky, has always supported the three of us as ALSDEAD from the shadows.

He is key member of our band. I hope you all support him!

And once again, a big thank you to all the other bands who performed, the staff who supported us, and to all of you ALSERs.

There is a lot more I want to write, but I’ll continue tomorrow.

I think I’ll have good dreams tonight☆

We had our last rehearsal for the big show today.

There was more enthusiasm than ever in the studio.  With the ALSERs joining in, the real thing will be amazing.

Two days left. I’ll be sure to get myself ready ☆

Also, the finished product of STARLESS has finally arrived. Such good timing!

Here’s the store version.

Here’s the black-case limited version you can only get at the venue.

There’s only 100 copies of the limited version so don’t miss out ☆

Tomorrow we have our PV check. I’m looking forward to seeing how it turned out.

Japanese-style bell pepper and takana* pasta


Lately, I like eating the light taste of soboro.**☆


Today we finished up the new SE,*** so we’re pretty much done with all the preparations. All that’s left is making any last adjustments for our live at tomorrow’s rehearsal .


I’m really excited to finally be able to show the future of ALSDEAD to all the ALSERs who waited for us.


You’ll be able to feel a force different from before that the three of us created through our new system.


At last, only three more days!
