OK, so this community ended years ago with Dali's messy last spurts of activity, BUT: while poking around LJ today (I know, right?) I noticed that the username dali was purged...
So, as of today, this community is officially dali!!
I mean, there's literally no point in my having done this (especially since this community―and LJ as a VK platform―has been dead for years), but it had been my lifelong dream to own that username at LJ. Despite it taking until 2014 to happen, I am happy to have accomplished this major goal. ψ(｀∇´)ψ
Before disbanding, they'll embark on their last tour, will hold their last oneman tour, and will release a best album with [basically] no new songs. You can read about all of that and see their “latest look” here: Dali's disbandment and last release.
True to form, they didn't actually give an official date for the disbandment, but presumably it will be the last of their oneman live tour, which would be November 25th.
Of course, this is no surprise to longtime fans, as Dali has already been languishing in inactivity for three years. That said, it's still unfortunate. Also on the subject of “unfortunate,” they're releasing four new songs via live-limited releases, but decided not to include any of those on the best album.
Dali appeared at N@H's 2012-01-05 sponsored event. Only, they appeared as theセンチメンタルレンタル (the SENTIMENTAL RENTAL). the SENTIMENTAL RENTAL has a special lineup... smile: Rん (R n) 2011年度ジュノンボーイ書類審査落ち (2011 Nendo JUNON BOY Shorui Shinsaochi) freedom: Kえと (K eto) 2011年度ベストパジャマニスト受賞 (2011 Nendo BEST PAJAMANIST Jushou) bass: Yう (Y u) クールビズ (COOL BUSINESS) drums: Sんな (S nna) 浪速のキダ・タロー (Naniwa no KIDA ・ TAROO)
Dali released a 50 minute live DVD called はろおおおおお―。 (Haroooooo-。) on 2011-05-05. No clue if it was distributed or what.
Dali released a remake of standard pink number—standard pink number (2011 ver.)—sometime in 2011. No other information.
Dali's らりるれろ (Rarirurero) single that was supposed to be sold in November was never mentioned again.
Neither was the Dali December release that KISAKI talked about a long time ago.
Dali's January limited single, 25:55 was released today through the official web shop and at their oneman.
Because overseas fans can't have it all, only copies of 25:55 purchased at the live contain a password to a special Dali blog, which will contain a story or writings about the band's activities or some shit.
The official web shop listed Dali's single as 25:00, lol.
Ok that's all the little stuff I'd been meaning to post about. Woosh~
The details for two more Dali Collection 2011 events have been released (well, actually, I'm pretty sure the details for one were already released, but whatever).
More importantly, they've announced two “solo performances,” which are known as oneman lives by sane people.
Most importantly of all, they announced the release of a new song called 25:55. The CD will be live and official web shop -limited. It will go on sale on 2011-01-11 (at the OSAKA oneman), but the price has not yet been specified.
If KISAKI was telling the truth, they still have a regular release to announce for December. So I dunno what's going on with that, but hopefully it will be announced soon.
Oh, and by the way, I was about to nerdrage so hard when I saw that limited CD, but then I noticed the “official web shop” bit and cried tears of joy. Yessssss!
Boo :( If I understood correctly, it seems that 天華 (Tenka), bassist of ロットマン (LOTMAN) and Aigis, has decided to quit music. He says that he started band activities when he was only 15 years old—he joined CELL HEAD at 17, LOTMAN and Aigis at 19—and now, at 21, he wants to take time to become a better person.
I can't accurately translate the post, but to me it sounds like he's very sad, and guilty almost (seems that he lost his father at 19 years old, so maybe that has something to do with it). I'm not sure if he means to come back eventually, but it sounds like he may not. At any rate, let's wish him luck :( ⇒ original post
Yay! No specifics yet, but KISAKI mentioned in his blog that Dali will have a new release in December. That means two releases in one year?! You're blowing my mind boys~ KISAKI also posted a picture of the guys in their cute pajamas here (love how their “pajamas” are more fashionable than my usual clothes).
Actually, I had a dream last night that they'd release something at the end of the year. In my dream, it was a two track single with a live DVD. I'm not psychic, but I can't wait to find out how close my dream was :D And what about you guys?
Well, ダリコレ2011 pajamas (DALI COLLECTION 2011 pajamas) is over. No clue how it went, to be honest (any of you know? nhuie?), but hopefully well. Anyway, KISAKI tweeted that the band has two oneman lives planned (well, I assume the first one is a oneman, but maybe I'm wrong), with information to be revealed later.
The first oneman (probably) will be held on 2011-11-01 at 渋谷 (Shibuya) CLUB CRAWL. The second is the band's annual January 1st oneman at 心斎橋 (Shinsaibashi) FANJ-twice. (KISAKI actually said that the second is to be held on 2011-01-11, but I'm pretty sure he meant 2012, unless they have time machines.)
Hopefully they'll release something before 2011 ends. Too much to ask? Probably~
