VAMPS, the Japanese rock band formed by HYDE (L’Arc~en~Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust), kicked off their latest U.S. tour on April 8 to promote the international edition of their latest release, BLOODSUCKERS.

Touring the U.S. a year and a half after the international edition of SEX BLOOD ROCK N ROLL, this tour has personal meaning for HYDE as he gets the chance to hit the road with SIXX:A.M., the band formed by one of his most respected artists, Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. VAMPS has been focusing on overseas activities since 2013, and they invited SIXX:A.M. to their own festival “VAMPARK FEST” on Feb 18 and 19 this year for a dream opportunity – a joint live show.

“VAMPS gave us a chance to perform in front of many rock fans in Japan. We’d like to show our appreciation by inviting them to join us on our U.S. tour,” said bandleader Nikki Sixx.

VAMPS continued their tour with SIX:A.M. through April and are returning to New York after performing here last December. (Read JC•NYC’s interview with HYDE and K.A.Z here.)

The NYC show is for ages 16 and older and will also feature opening acts Like A Storm and From Ashes To New.
