The European performances are not the first overseas performances for SOMEI YOSHINO. In February of this year, the band performed at a convention in Laos. With the start of the new music project, SOMEI YOSHINO published a music video, titled祇園-GION-. Later on, the single got a physical release at Comiket.
The former band of RYU, Visual Kei band OROCHI, was active for 15 years and disbanded at the end of January 2019. The band had many line-up changes and after the last changes, it was decided by the vocalist to disband OROCHI and have a ‘restart’ with a new solo project.
