Shackle up!! MANACLE Debuts, Drops Two Singles

In perhaps the most anticipated debut of the year, MANACLE held their inaugural performance this weekend.  Their introductory set premiered two songs and employed the old punk practice of playing their best song twice. The best part, of course, was seeing Okaki, Ray and Hina performing on the same stage again. Newcomer Maon  also impressed.

The big question going into their unveiling was, “What will MANACLE sound like?” Wonder no more as, shortly following the show, they announced the release of both of their new songs, “Our Easter” and “Youdentity”, on your favorite streaming platforms.

“Youdentity” is composed by none other than perennial Friend of Homicidols,  Tenma Matsunaga of URBANGARDE.

Not done yet: MANACLE also announced the opening of their international fan club.

If you missed the inaugural live, you will have more chances to see this front-runner for debut-of-the-year soon.  MANACLE appears with BURST GIRL later this week in a talk + live event. The talk session will be broadcast free on YouTube, but the performance livestream platform is TBA (probably Twitcasting from the M-SMILE account). They also have a two-man live with XOXO-EXTREME this upcoming Saturday (UPDATE: for Saturday’s show, Twitcasting tickets are here) . Check The Calendar for livestreaming details on these events as they become available.
