According to Spinefarm Records, VAMPS(JPN), the Japanese rock band formed by and featuring HYDE (L’Arc~en~Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust), will return to the UK for a one-off headline show on MARCH 28th.
This event will take place at Koko, North London, and sees VAMPS(JPN) – one of Japan’s most successful & daring rock acts – returning to the UK in the wake of their sold-out show last October at London’s Islington Academy.
A special VIP ticket will also be available, which allows fans to meet with the band prior to the show. These tickets will be limited to 100.
In celebration of the show, VAMPS(JPN) will release the brand new single, ‘WORLD’S END’ (English ver. of ‘AHEAD’), via Spinefarm Records; last September, the VAMPS(JPN) international debut album, ‘SEX BLOOD ROCK N’ ROLL’, was also put out through the Spinefarm label. This collection – containing tracks such as ‘REVOLUTION II’, ‘DEVIL SIDE’ & ‘VAMPIRE DEPRESSION’– saw key songs from the band’s career re-recorded in English, allowing new fans to rock out and sing along to VAMPS(JPN)’s heart-pumping music.
Says HYDE: “This international debut album that we gave ourselves entirely to is designed to export VAMPS to the world.”
Following their appearance at Koko, VAMPS(JPN) will continue to build their UK fan-base throughout 2014, hoping to return for further live activity at some point during the year.
