Japanese alternative band XANVALA released the digital single “R.I.P” on January 31, a hard-rocking track that beautifully blends a blast of frenzied energy with a melancholic aura.

“R.I.P” showcases XANVALA’s mastery of a riff-driven, intense yet melodic style that heats the stage. Composed by guitarist Yuhma, this single presents a palpitating rhythm with guitar work that brings out the emotional side of the song along with the vocals.

The members of XANVALA share their thoughts on the single:

It’s a song with the distinctive XANVALA-like sound. As for the lyrics, each person should give their own interpretation based on their perception.

— Vocalist Tatsumi

The music and the sound waves emerge together. Those undulations that are propagated have a cosmic expanse. It’s the birth of a new universe. Everybody, silence please. I’m tuning in.”

— Guitarist Yuhma

This song encapsulates all the greatness of Visual Kei. It’s aggressive yet mellow at the same time. This feeling is reminiscent of my first encounter with the Visual Kei scene.

— Guitarist Souma

It boasts a cool sound that hits you in the face like no other. Enjoy XANVALA’s new way of expression.

— Bassist 70.

“This will be our new standard. I can’t wait to play it live!”

— Drummer Tomoya

In addition to this digital single, XANVALA will be releasing a live Blu-ray and DVD on March 20, featuring the finale of their previous tour “ANS” at Ebisu Liquidroom on August 31, 2023. Pre-orders start on March 10 through the Starwave Records online store, where fans will get a signed photobook as an exclusive benefit.

The band recently celebrated their 4th anniversary with the final date of the first leg of the Japanese tour “THE CULTURE”, which will culminate on April 11 at Zepp Shinjuku.

As part of a new generation, XANVALA is determined to continue showing that the Visual Kei culture is very much alive and still has plenty to offer to the world.
