(Band) Vamps
« on: March 07, 2009, 08:28:07 PM »
Vamps, a duo announced in February 2008, is a side project of Oblivion Dust guitarist K.A.Z and L'Arc-en-Ciel vocalist Hyde. Their first single, "Love Addict", was released on July 2, 2008, which was followed soon by a tour of Zepp venues in August, consisting of 46 shows.Their second single I GOTTA KICK START NOW will be released on March 13, 2009. Their 2009 live tour is scheduled to start on April 5, and will include 30 shows.

Official Website


VAMPS' new PV, "TROUBLE" is finally out:

If they were going for covers, I wish they'd done a different song... it sounds sorta... weird... to me >_>  But anyway, that's just my opinion and I hope other people enjoy it more  :D  


NEWS: VAMPS will be at MUSIC STATION next Friday.

They're like L'Arc with a bit more edge.

Why are they playing a couple Warped Tour dates? haha An arena rock band on a "punk rock" tour? :lol:
And I just watched a show at the Wiltern the other day. Probably won't see them though, tickets are way too much for me.

But good luck Rei-chan, that's awesome!

I plan to go to the San Diego July 29th concert if one of my friends is willing to go too. Wondering who else is in San Diego maybe we can hit up some food before heading off to the concert.
