Despair status report [20 Jan 2009|05:15pm]

_consume_
The following was posted on Despair's mixi site, giving an update on current activities and future plans. I have spoken to Rieu and Jude in person and they have no intention of stopping the band despite recent negative events, which is great news. Here is my very rough translation:

Despair has suspended live activity since June of 2008 in order to work on a new full album. Announcements of new tracks will be irregular but expect announcements of live shows.

Currently:
Rieu is working with filmmaker Shojin Fukui to create the soundtrack to "chaotic collage film" S-94. Clips of the work have been previewed at Tokyo Dark Castle [I have seen it and it is some extremely harsh brutal stuff a la Tetsuo the Iron Man]. Theatrical release is expected sometime in 2009.

Filmmaker's website: http://fukui-shozin.com/

In addition, it is announced that the band is working with Polish avant garde photographer Slawomir Rumiak to create artwork for the new album.

ANA has died... [09 Apr 2008|07:48pm]

ANA died on march the 24th, caused by suicide...she was 23 years old...

Message from their original webside:

2008年3月24日(月)未明、Despairにて3年半の歳月を共に生きた女性ヴォーカリスト
"ANA"が、自殺により他界されたことを謹んでここにご報告させて頂きます。(享年23歳)

永きに渡りご支援を賜った皆様への感謝の念をお伝えさせて頂くと共に、命の尊さを、
そして自己の生命というその比類なき光との対峙に、いかなる理由にせよ、自らの手を以
終焉の幕を降ろすということへの警鐘の音を混迷の時代へ響かせるべく、併せてここに
思念を表させて頂きたく思います。

無限の可能性を秘めながら、その人生に早過ぎる終止符を打った彼女へ、心からの
追悼の念を以てその死をしめやかに彩ると共に、安らかな永遠の眠りに抱かれ続けられる
ことを、心より願っています。またいつかどこかで、必ず再会できることを信じて…。

「流した涙を刻むのは、誰しにも宿る自己の深き混濁と激情の果てに」

「錆びつく流砂を踏み締め生きる我々は、同じ道を歩んではならない」
