As he was able to find out Geek Alert during the conference, their songs will be sung in English and Japanese, but they do not rule out doing it in Chinese as well. Yoshiki will take the lead, but each member of the band will alternate roles, so there will be no bases as such. In the past, they had talked about putting something together, but it wasn’t until this year that they managed to get the band together.

During the conference, they talked about the fact that the project is underway, so some elements, such as its logo, were decided even yesterday. Despite the above, they decided to present themselves in the same way today, given the day (11-11), representing the uniqueness of each member.
