Jrock fans will most likely have already heard about this band that YOSHIKI's formed. At Otakon last year he announced that Gackt will be in it, and then a few months later, it was announced that Sugizo will also be in the band.

However, it wasn't until the Jrock Revolution concert in LA this weekend that the fourth member, as well as the band's name, were revealed. As mentioned in the title, the band's name is SKIN, although one person stated that a more fitting name would be The Fangirl Circle Jerk (I couldn't agree more).

Obviously Miyavi is the 4th member; that really shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. He's mentioned numerous times in his blog that he was flying to LA to discuss being part of a band, etc.

It seems like AX will be the place to be this year. SKIN will be performing there as well as the Haruhi cast. The Death Note movies will also be premiering there and the actors have been added to the guest list.

I'm really interested in hearing what they'll sound like. Unfortunately, I don't have high hopes for them - YOSHIKI, Gackt, Sugizo, & Miyavi? That's a whole lot of ego.

Yeah, hearing this news was the craziest thing ever for me! I can imagine all the fangirls are already going insane over this

All their styles of music are a bit different so I wonder how they're going to sound.

I never have high hopes for "super band" group projects (Though you can put Yoshiki on just about anything and I am in). This is either going to be really good or really bad, and I really hope it isn't the latter... but fan girls will be lerking to find a way to spoil it.

So I about snorted when I read the words The Fangirl Circle Jerk! AHAHAHA. that would truly be a classic band name!

I thought it was cool, but yeah, I don't have high hopes for SKIN either. It's probably just going to be a for fun thing, you know? I don't think anyone's going to take them seriously.
"The Fangirl Circle Jerk." Yep, that's basically what it is lmao

What I really want to know is, who's the singer?? Gackt?

I still wish I could see them heh

^ Yep. I'm fairly certain Gackt's the singer.

:) Absolutely, although I must admit that I wasn't too thrilled with some of the Violet UK songs. And I whole-heartedly agree with you about supergroups. More often than not, they end up at each other's throats due to the massive amount of ego. I would really love for SKIN to work out, though.

XD What I find sad about it is that the name couldn't possibly be more fitting for this band.

I'm soooo intrigued as to what they'll sound like, but I agree with most of the posts above. However, are the rest of the guys really able to step back and let Gackt do the singing? And personally I think this is a little disgusting, I'm not really into all star collaborations, it usually turns out to be mediocre and that's about the worst. Oh and I'm scared of fangirls by the way

I don't see why they wouldn't. Unless I'm mistaken, Miyavi is the only one out of the three of them that's been a vocalist, and that wasn't until he went solo. I think they'll be perfectly content playing their instruments.

Yeah, but Miyavi seems to have enough of an ego to want to sing as well. Out of the two, Gackt is the better singer in my opinion, but the vocalist is in the spotlight the most, so it'd be only natural for him to want to sing as well. All the people I know who were vocalist at some point in a band, usually would want to continue being that And considering they're going to be a fangirl magnet, the Miyavi party would be pretty disappointed if he didn't sing

XD Miyavi's fangirls are no match for Gackt's army, though.

Miyavi started out as a guitarist though, right? I think he'll be fine with letting Gackt be the vocalist.

Holy crap!!! Yoshiki will be at anime expo?! With Gackt?!?!!! AND Miyavi?! o_O

:) & SUGIZO.


As much as I am obsessed with Yoshiki in his X Japan days, I never heard of this SKIN project until recently.


Neither did anyone else. The first time it was mentioned was at Otakon last year and all YOSHIKI said was that he was forming a band with Gackt. Then the news died down until a few months ago when it was announced that SUGIZO was the third member. However, it wasn't until Jrock Revolution that the band's name was finally released, along with the fact that Miyavi was going to be in it as well. I'm surprised more information hasn't been released, given the immense popularity of all four members.

So we probably won't hear Miyavi sing again if this band works out? That would suck >.<

...

O.o The more I think about it, the weirder it gets! lol

^ He actually has a new song coming out sometime soon, I believe. Gackt has some new music coming out soon as well.

I'm assuming that, although they're all in this band, they'll still be doing their own stuff.
