sat down with RYO:SUKE
of WING WORKS
at Shibuya O-West in Tokyo, Japan at "BRAND NEW WAVE ～HALLOWEEN PARTY 2013～
may be more familiar to you as the former bassist for visual kei band Lolita 23q
. Now with his solo career and a group of talented "WING-MEN
" (support members), RYO:SUKE
has grown some impressive wings and flown into his very own world by creating and performing his own music. With visual kei being very cool, he wants the world to hear and enjoy his new style of music.
Since Halloween was being celebrated this evening, not only the fans dressed in costumes but RYO:SUKE
and his WING-MEN
were all dressed as characters from the anime/manga "Shingeki no Kyojin-Attack on Titan
".The backstage of the venue was four floors and only a few small dressing rooms. There were several bands playing, inevitably there were photo shoots in progress, staff scurrying around, clothes, wigs, food, and people littering the small stairwells all preparing for their performances.
If you are unfamiliar with WING WORKS
's first debut solo album titled "STAR GAZER MEMORY
" was released last January and came with some skepticism because some of the songs on the album seemed geared to more dance than hard rock. Seeing Wing Works
'LIVE' would wipe any doubt out of your mind, this is great rock and roll! Not only a strong stage presence by RYO:SUKE
who was in total control vocally, his impressive support was very powerful.
Since the album release there have been two singles, “VAD†MAN～sorry, this is "MACHINATION"～
and recently announced "fushichou -FENNIX-"
which drops on Christmas day, December 25th, which is the next chapter of the story about VAD†MAN
