Synk;yet 4th single [Aizou no Femme Fatale] on sale March 4, 2015

“The purity of my blood lost, I wished for death…”
Details on Synk;yet’s first new single in about a year and a half, along with their latest artist photos, have been revealed. The second release in their concept of “sin and madness” differs from their previous image, resulting in a work with a more conceptual style. Of course, in a nod to their long-time fans (nicknamed Messiahs), their symphonic metal sound and smooth vocal melodies remain intact.

In a departure from their previous works, the music video included has been given a rating of R-15, featuring plenty of painfully shocking scenes that are sure to make the viewer want to look away. The powerful impact of the feelings and messages that the members have poured into this work are another highlight of the video.

TYPE-A includes the R-15 rated music video for [Aizou no Femme Fatale], while TYPE-B includes [R.I.P.~Requiescat in Pace~], a track first revealed at their tour final on September 25, 2014 at Ikebukuro EDGE, and TYPE-C includes [Fatal lovers-after story-] from their first single, which has become extremely difficult to come across.

A sponsored tour of four cities has been confirmed to accompany the new single’s release, with pre-sales of the single planned for each stop on the tour.

Also, a major announcement is planned for the final stop on their current one-man tour, on March 26, 2015 at Tsutaya O-WEST (formerly Shibuya O-WEST). Guests may purchase a single ticket that comes with a bonus gift or a pair of tickets, making this an attractive live show for anyone with even a slight interest in the band, not just long-time fans. This will also be their largest-capacity live to date, so you won’t want to miss it!
