MUCC Announces Release Of “Loud” New Single & MERRY Stars In All Nine Visual Kei, 3-Man Shows
MUCC has announced that they would be releasing a new single in advance to the release of the album “THE END OF THE WORLD”, on May 28.
The title of the band’s first single release of 2014 would be “ENDER ENDER”＞ In contrast to their last single “World’s End”, a heavily pop-sounding tune, the new single defies all genres with it’s loud-but-melodic sound. The band has immense confidence for the new song as they described it as a “song only expressible by MUCC”.
The first press edition of “ENDER ENDER” would include the title track, the new coupling track “Monopoly” and demo recordings of all six coupling tracks released in 2013, “DEMO OF THE WORLD”, in addition to it coming with a DVD featuring the music video and its making video. The standard edition would include the title track and “Monopoly”, along with the self-cover tune, “Mae e –In its true light-“.
The newest artwork that was just revealed is another thing to look out for. The visual produce was done by “7STARS DESIGN’s” Keiichi Iwata, who has worked with the likes of KISHIDAN, BRAHMAN and TOTAL FAT amongst other rock bands. He also has very close ties with street fashion. The artwork does justice to the edgy, sparkly, tune with a strong backbone.
The bonus for purchasers of both the new single “ENDER ENDER” and the album “THE END OF THE WORLD”, which will be released on June 25, has also been announced. 69 people will win a staff T-shirt designed after the one-man live concert held at Yoyogi National Stadium First Gymnasium on September 23 (Tue / National Holiday). Furthermore, everyone will be gifted with a wallpaper of a picture of the band and the audience at Yoyogi shot after the concert.

It has been announced that MERRY would be making an appearance at ＜SIX NINE WARS –Bokura no Nanakagestukan Sensou –Episode 4. ‘TRIANGLE’＞, which would be held in June. It had already been announced that SuG, LM.C and vistlip will be appearing at the event, MERRY will be performing at all nine concerts.

Koriyama is finished!!!!!!
It was the hottest three days of the VS series!
I was watching BACK HORN from the wing of the stage, but they were pretty cool from there, too (laugh) The tension grew higher and higher!
In the dressing room while we had a chat in the long time missed home town speech, everybody noisily spoke with an accent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(｀◎∀◎)
(note: I just had no idea how to turn it into a normal sentence..so I kinda translated it literally! Back Horn is also from Tokyo, and Yukke said that they all spoke in the same accent in the dressing room.)
It was fun!
(I) Will come again, Koriyama!
(Gonna) Sleep ‘till we arrive. Good night.. (Θ■Θ)
