Rock band KISS collaborating with Sailor Moon Crystal’s Momoiro Clover Z


The U.S. rock band KISS is no stranger to merchandise collaborations with Japan, but the masked glam rock band is marking its first time working with a Japanese musical artist with a new single next year. KISS and the Japanese pop idol group Momoiro Clover Z are set to release a new single together on January 28, 2015.

The first announced track is “Yume no Ukiyo ni Saitemina,” composed by Paul Stanley and Greg Collins, with lyrics written by Yuho Iwasato. Momoiro Clover Z are performing the song with KISS providing background vocals and instruments. It will be released in two versions via iTunes in 120 countries. A music video with both bands was already shot in Las Vegas.

KISS is releasing their own new song titled “Samurai Son” on the band’s “Best of KISS 40″ CD and the KISS version of the “Yume no Ukiyo ni Saitemina” single. KISS will launch their 40th anniversary tour with Momoiro Clover Z, performing with the band at their last stop at the Tokyo Dome.

KISS first announced they were working with Momoiro Clover Z last month.

Momoiro Clover Z previously performed themes for the Pokémon anime series, Bodacious Space Pirates, and Joshiraku before rising to prominence as the singers behind the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime series.

I don't know which group is scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Gene Simmons and + young, female Japanese idols.

The mind boggles, and not in a good way.

They've aged well. No grey hair.

Nothing remotely subtle on planet Kiss, the makeup is still applied in the same manner as rendering a dry wall. Any sudden movement that provoked rapid change of expression and the resulting avalanche of facial masonry would bring the careers of Momoiro Clover Z took a rather grisly conclusion.

The miracle of Grecian Formula 16! They have to watch out for that Lead Acetate, though.

Whatever colour furry animals been strapped to there heads, Japan imposes hefty fines and long prison sentences if it is an endangered species. I have anonymously alerted customs to the importance of protecting habitats. Clearly there a serious lapse in pest control to what the poor creatures been attached to.

Please keep that disgusting old fart Gene away from the pretty girls. Is that possible?

They were quite prominent well before that series started, probably more popular a few years back than they are now.
