There’s been a lot of buzz about Avril Lavigne’s latest video “Hello Kitty” and most of it concerns it being “racist”.
I found it all too stupid to comment, and finally here someone else making a statement. And he’s Japanese. ^^
Enjoy music and don’t be so eager to hate. And if you don’t like the music – or the video – that’s no reason for hating either. Just sayin’.
This is not Japanese, it’s a Swedish band. The singer Seike, used to be vocalist in YOHIO’s old band Seremedy and is today active with DIE/MAY and Kerbera.
They are influenced by Japanese visual kei and I’m a Swede myself, so here we go. :-)
This is DIE/MAY with Seike, who also is singer in Kerbera and ex-Seremedy. In other words a Swedish band.

Old Seremedy fans will be happy now since the whole gang will play together on September 20th at Klubben in Stockholm.
Exclusive advance tickets will be available on YOHIO’s concerts in Stockholm (May 1st and 2nd).
Regular tickets will be released May 5th.
