We asked the band some simple questions… From their […]

Full Album + New Look!

UNNEVER END

TRA TRA TRA announced their first full album, [bb] -beautiful blasphemy-, to be released on March 15, 2017! They’ve also updated their homepage (http://tratratra.jp/) with their new look and album information!

There will also be a first album release/Hiroki birthday event on March 22, 2017!

Tra hasn’t announced any live dates other than 11/30 @ Ikebukuro Black Hole and 2/23 @ HOLIDAY SHINJUKU. I’m assuming they’ll be busy working on their album for the next couple of months. Based on the new song, UNCHAIN, that they played at their 2nd one-man, I have high hopes for this album!!

It’s gotten a lot cooler, but it’s easy to get sick so take care of yourself!
Though, I’m the one who’s the most sick.

I’m -Ryo-.

Tomorrow we have a gig at Shibuya REX. It’s been a while since we’ve been there.
Plus it’s the show before our one-man.
Please help us make it a success that flows on to the one-man!

For me, it’s also my birthday month, but every year I always get sick near my birthday. I’m jinxed.

No matter what happens this year, I want to overcome it!
And I wanna be in top shape and have an awesome birthday and 1st one-man!

I snorted to myself when I wrote “be in top shape.”

I’m in perfect condition for now with only 10 more days till the one-man!

I’m aiming to be in the best condition so whether you’re coming for the first time or not, let’s all have fun in our best condition!

 

Well then, Shibuya REX tomorrow will be super flashy!

Next time: The green person who I thought plays games the least, but surprisingly plays Pokemon Go the most.

 

PS: Recently I’ve been wondering if I should try IQOS.*

*IQOS (pronounced “eye-cos”) is a smokeless cigarette that uses tobacco to produce tobacco-flavored vapor rather than the hazardous smoke and tar. (more info)

Concerning the fact that there weren’t many ghost shows on TV this year: -Ryo-

Hey, I’m guy who lost his phone for an entire week.

-Ryo-.

Since losing my phone, I’ve realized that people can’t live without their cell phone.
My summer memory.

Well, summer is coming to an end. Was everyone able to enjoy it?

I haven’t been able to shake this summer lethargy.
I wasn’t that pale to begin with, but I got a little tanner even though I didn’t go to the beach. My summer memory.

I secretly wanted to go glamping* this year, but summer ended before I got the chance. But now I have a goal for next year. My summer memory.

Also, as I’m writing this, I’m looking at someone walking by wearing a yukata and eating watermelon. So refined.

Please don’t think that I don’t have anything to write.
On the contrary, there are so many things that I’m actually troubled about it.

But well, that’s about it for my summer. Just the other day we announced our 2nd one-man.

What with us being in the middle of preparing for our first one-man there are so many things to look forward to, I’m a bit restless.

Even with summer ending, there are a lot of fun things waiting for me.
When the time comes, let’s have fun with no restraint.

And did you get a free copy of KAMIKAZE at our gig last week?
If you haven’t gotten it yet, you should definitely pick one up and listen to it.

There’s a bit of a gap till our next gig, but I’ll be sure to completely recover from this summer lethargy by then.

Alright, that’s about it for now.
Sorry I didn’t mention anything related to the title.

PS: Since I lost my phone, I don’t have any pictures of my summer memories.
I’ll gladly accept pictures of everyone’s summer memories to put in my phone instead.

Next time: Jellyfish Omi

*glamping is apparently a thing. It stands for “glamorous camping.” Basically for when you want to go camping, but don’t want to deal with all the yuck that comes with it. (source)

The title of Ryo’s blog is referring to the fact that in Japan, it is common to tell ghost stories in the summer. When you get scared, usually you get a chill so they use that to cool off in this ridiculous Japanese summer heat/humidity.

Nothing will change in how we do things

With our attack force, “We Have Had a Successful Surprise Attack” we are pushing forward.

 

―With their huge success at the live they hosted on July 22nd, we have TRA TRA TRA with us today! Bassist Mamoto withdrew from the band at that same show, and you announced that you would continue on with only three of the members. Will there be any changes in the band’s concept moving forward?

Omi: After many meetings, we ended up with only three members, but “after the rain comes fair weather” as they say, and a strange strength in unity was born. I feel like our gigs have become more solid in an aggressive way. We’re a lot more extreme than we used to be.

Ryo: We’re definitely going to push our concept stronger than before so look foward to it.

[Lyrics] TRA TRA TRA – メルト (Melt)

Artist: TRA TRA TRA
Single: メルト/We-KID
Lyrics: Ryo


Bound intimately by the sensation of these trembling hands
Crushed by solitude, I let out a laugh and wake up!
Good night, self

Sweet, sweet temptation
You see, idiots never learn
They fall, a wild frenzy into the night
Forced to dance the dance, into that trap

I can make it! mid night party

Destroy everything
Melted by those hands
Just over there
I laugh at the me that was

Exchange the fun of this night for my left arm
I don’t want to see any of that crap anymore
Just make it all disappear

The sweet, sweet cry of your voice
I want to gain that heat
Taint me more
I don’t care if it’s all a lie

I can make it! mid night party

Until the very end
Fake it, even if it’s just for show
Those tricks
Are improving more and more

let me bounce, let me bounce, forget everything
I pretend I could get away and laugh
When there’s really nothing there, I put a lid on it
Plus, I’m used to losing everything
I swore that there was no love,
but even so, if I catch a glimpse of it, I search for it
In reality this is where I cried
Just for now, I want to drown in this night

I don’t believe anyone or anything
Even though the solitude goes on filling the gaps
On these lonely nights
I want to sleep being loved by you

Original Lyrics:

震えだすこの手の感覚に心地よく締め付けられて
孤独に潰され笑い出す 目が覚めた!僕よ、おやすみ

甘い甘い誘惑に
バカの一つ覚えでさ
落ちる夜に乱れ狂う
踊らされたそこは罠

I can make it! mid night party

壊れていく
その手の中で溶かして
すぐそこには
あいつが笑う僕がいた

この夜に落ちる喜びと引き換えに与える左手
くだらない何も見たくない どうせなら今すぐ消して

甘い甘い声で鳴き
熱を帯びたそれが欲しい
もっと私を汚して
全部嘘でかまわない

I can make it! mid night party

どこまでも
気休めにでも騙して
駆け引きは
だいぶましにこなせてきた

let me bounce 飛ばせ すべてを忘れて
逃げれたフリして笑う
どうせここには何も無いと塞ぎ、そして
失うことになれてった
愛なんてどこにもないと誓った、それでも気がつけば探してしまうから
本当はここで泣いていた
今だけはこの夜に溺れていたいから

誰も何も信じない
孤独が隙間埋めていく
それでも寂しい夜は
あなたに愛され眠りたい
