Please, could you shortly introduce yourself to our readers and to describe your music for those who yet are not familiar with you?
We are Ryusuke and Fumiya in the band Doukoku. I’m Ryusuke on vocal and my little brother Fumiya is on guitar. Doukoku’s sounds are many, but we often use synthesizer.
There sadness and loneliness put into our music as well as intensity.
How will you spend Christmas 2014?
We are very busy preparing for the new album to be released next year.
There may not be time to enjoy Christmas.
What are your plans for the year 2015?
The plans for next year are already decided but the only thing we can say for now is that a new album will be released.
What place in Japan you would recommend to spend Christmas?
The illumination of Roppongi is very beautiful and famous; it’s crowded with couples and families.
What is your best memory from this year?
My Birthday Live in May. I was very happy to be congratulated by a lot of people. ^^
Doukoku (慟哭～doukoku ～)
Name: “Doukoku” means “a cry of feelings you can’t put into words”
Note: Ryusuke and Fumiya are brothers
