SERAPH Announces Their Debut Single!


SERAPH = The Sovereign Angel

A new exciting Japanese musical duo has emerged!

SERAPH is a self-produced musical duo consisting of Shinya (the drummer for one of Japan’s world renowned leading rock bands “DIR EN GREY”) and Moa (piano & vocal). This marks the first time Shinya has embarked on a solo project outside of DIR EN GREY. Moa’s identity is still shrouded in mystery.

Elegantly combining philosophical and revealing lyrics, beautiful melodies and epic orchestra with ambient sounds, SERAPH’s music is a heavenly blend of these two powerhouse’s drums and piano skills.

SERAPH will release their debut single “Génesi” on July 5, 2017. It will initially be released on various online platforms including iTunes and dwango, and then later released on CD & DVD on August 18, 2017. “Génesi” is the main theme for the Japanese movie “Reigantantei-Karutetto” which premiered in June 2017. “Destino” (another SERAPH song) is the opening theme for “Reigantantei-Karutetto”. Both of these songs represent the type of masterpieces that SERAPH will bring to their audiences.

The director of the lyric video for “Génesi” is Ken Nikai. He has also worked on well known movies, TV shows and music videos for HYDE, VAMPS, L’Arc~en~Ciel, SUGIZO and many others. SERAPH’s world view image is well portrayed within “Génesi”.

From now, they will be actively attending major overseas music festivals and events in the future. As such, SERAPH wishes to spread its message throughout the world!
