On October 31st a mysterious band called "Sukekiyo" opened its website. There were no details on the members or on lives performances that time but two weeks later it was announced that this band would play as opening act for Sugizo's live tour "THRIVE TO REALIZE" at Shibuya AX on December 29th.
Sukekiyo turned out to be the solo project of Dir en Grey's Kyo. The band performed three songs on the 29th and released an EP titled "the daemon's cutlery" that costs 1800 Yen and is available at lives. Their next live was held at COUNTDOWN JAPAN on December 30th; this same day, at Makuhari Messe they revealed an artist picture where you can see the other members: guitarist and pianist TAKUMI (ex-RENTRER EN SOI), guitarist UTA (ex-9GOATS BLACK OUT), bassist YUCHI (kannivalism), and drummer MIKA (ex-RENTRER EN SOI).
They released their "aftermath" music video on New Year’s Day, and it was made available in 111 countries at iTunes.
Kyo is the one behind the origin, the image, execution and even the choice of actors for the first video from sukekiyo, a video that will show you the beauty that lies within distortion.
