VAMPS is a Japanese rock band consisting of the super sexy vocalist from L'arc~en~Ciel
, and an amazing guitarist by the name of K.A.Z
. Less prominent members of the band consist of a wickedly awesome bassist by the name of Ju-Ken
(who is known from GacktJob
) and a drummer and pianist who aren't as well known or promoted in the band, so I don't know their names.
Not only are they extremely good looking people, but they're extremely talented. Their first self titled album came out June 10th, signed to the Vamprose label. They kicked off their first American tour July 11th in NYC, and I was there, and it was amazing beyond belief.
Unfortunately, most of the fanbase in America stems from the fact that Hyde is super sexy, and already famous in the Jrock community. Therefore, the rest of the members tend to be extra baggage in the minds of the average fangirl.
Fangirl: OMG, VAMPS!!! HYDE, YOU'RE SO SEXY! MOTHER MY CHILDREN! I DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT YOUR MUSIC, OR THE REST OF THE MEMBERS, YOU'RE JUST SO FRIGGIN' HOTT!
