[Heavy Metal/Hard Rock] LIPSTICK
#1
With the news of the new album, and me loving this band to bits, I guess I should make a band thread for them too Wink

LIPSTICK is a heavy metal act from Tokyo. They started back in 2012, but only started getting some decent popularity and doing regular live shows from 2016. From 2017, their old singer K-KA left the band and Sindy joined. In 2018, drummer SYUN had to leave the band due to health reasons. They're working with support drummers at the moment.

Most of the music is written by guitarist Sally, and it's quite obvious that her love of bands like 44 Magnum has influenced the music greatly. Jimmy from 44 Magnum has also performed with them in the past. Their music has an older heavy metal feel to it, but they like to call it 'Massive Rock'.

Their current line-up:

Vocals: Sindy
Guitar: Sally
Bass: Sakae (さかえ)

Past members:

Drums: SYUN
Vocals: K-KA

I'm not too huge on their first CD and their latest single, but X-Sense was pretty good. War War War was ok, but seemed a bit flat... dunno. Not surprised their vocalist left after that.

X-Sense is my favorite too. I haven't actually got their first album, but I asked Sally to get me a copy at their one-man in December. I love one song on that album a lot (Do It Action) at least Tongue

Live I can tell you they are a lot of fun. They've got a small but dedicated fanbase Wink And they're such sweethearts too Tongue SYUN is a nice guy too to speak with.
None of them speak great English, but Sally is easiest to talk to, SYUN being second.

Their lead singer just makes me think of Suzy Quatro for some reason. I'm old...

They're doing a show with Moth In Lilac on December 25th, just a couple days after their one-man:



Also they've announced the times for the one-man:

The one-man last night was a blast. Total recommend for anyone. Audience was totally into it, including some pits! Sindy even participated in one, lol.

Can you spot yourself?:



And why is Sally wearing a blindfold for 'Brave'? WTF?!?!?

Yes! I am even more visible during the other video they just posted on their own channel, of the live on the 25th.

I guess she wanted to show she could play blindfolded Tongue Other stuff happened too, like Sindy breaking a piece of wood with her foot (apparently she did taekwondo). Also they switched members at one point for one song (Sindy on drums, Sakae on guitar, SYUN on bass and Sally on vocals), that was cool.
