Interviewer(I): How about VAMPS LIVE 2015-2016 JOINT 666?
HYDE(H): This JOINT 666, of course there are Japanese artists but also we would like to have joint lives with foreign artists to create exciting gigs. It as well means that we introduce them in Japan and they introduce us in their countries. It is like a small gig version of VAMPARK FEST in last February.
I: In the meantime, you will join Apocalyptica Shadowmaker UK Tour. It would be a very difficult schedule, won’t it?
H: Yes. This opportunity arose when APOCALYPTICA and we played with SIXX:A.M. at the SIXX:A.M. The Modern Vintage Tour, we talked about doing joint lives. During the SIXX:A.M tour, we met each other everyday and built friendships.
I: It would be a very busy schedule if you move different places and do gigs everyday in 6 days.
H: Yeah, but I believe we can do it because we are guests. If we were main artists, it could be very different. It is amazing to have main artists play this level of lives like SIXX:A.M. We could see the world-wide rock band style through their gigs. We, ourselves, also do live performances, but I felt 'wow, they are amazing.'
I: Lastly, are you making songs currently?
H: Yeah, I am doing a lot of stuff.
I: Can you inform anything here?
H: Well, you will see soon little by little. We are making songs while you do not know what we do, like the collaboration song 'SIN IN JUSTICE' with APOCALYPTICA. We will release songs in a little while, so please look forward to that.
