:update·site renewal:

As you may have noticed, I've completely changed the layout of the site ;)

 

This site has been online for quite a long time, and I felt it was time to renew it completely, to better provide all the news and informations on Moi dix Mois, and as an archives of all their activities.

I'm sorry for the short hiatus the site had experienced, but the work took a long time ;)

 

I will soon add ALL the missing sections, as well as a forum and brand new contents.

Some great news from Moi dix Mois!:
~ Moi dix Mois to play at Wave Gotik Treffen (June 4th)
~ Moi dix Mois first live in America this summer
~ Tohru and Kazuno would play at Kaya's first solo live

An official e-mail from Midi:Nette:
"Moi dix Mois will be appearing in Germany's festival:
The Wave Gotik Treffen
2nd of June until 5th of June 2006 in Leipzig/Germany

The date of Moi dix Mois' appearance:
June 4th, 2006
To purchase tickets, please go to the following link:
http://www.wave-gotik-treffen.de/english/karten.php
----
Monthy concerts are planned for the upcoming summer.
We hope you look forward to it"


The Wave Gotik Treffen is the world greatest Gothic festival, after the articles of Orkus (and the magazine cover featuring Mana), the release of Nocturnal Opera under Trisol label, and the appearance in a German TV show, Moi dix Mois enjoy a growing success in European Gothic scene ;). In 2003, when I started this site, or in 2001, when I begin to listen to Malice Mizer, never I imagined that one day I could see Mana in Europe recognized by the Western gothic/metal scene!

Translation of the latest Aesthetics entry of Mana, in which he talks about the appearance at Wake Gotik Treffen but also announces Moi dix Mois first live in America planned for this summer:

"
May 3

We finished our triumphant concert.
We also announced that this year would be full of live concerts, and from this summer we would play in monthly lives.
"Monthly lives" means that we would play a concert every month
[note: Mana explains the english word in japanese]
That will be our first try.
I don't know what will come out traveling every month, but I hope I will be able to play exciting concerts.
Soon I will tell you all details.

And, the 4th June, we arranged to make an appearance at the big german festival called Wave Gotik.
We will be the headliner.
[note: I don't think so...that's too much :D... I think Mana says that for japanese fans whom don't know Wave Gotik Treffen]
We received the main band scene as I wanted, and while we are waiting for this, we will play in other live shows in the meantime, so continue to watch out for Moi dix Mois.

And finally, this summer is planned the first Moi dix Mois live in America.
"

Tohru e Kazuno, ex Moi dix Mois members, will play in the first solo live of Kaya, ex vocalist of Schwarz Stein (ex-Midi:Nette band produced by Mana), along with Aie, ex Deadman guitarist. Kaya will sing songs from the session album "another cell"   (released with Hora) and his new first solo single (limited to 1000 copies) will be available at the concert.
