The THIRTEEN – New unit from Sadie’s Mao and Mizuki

JRock247-TheThirteen-Mao-Mizuki
While Sadie is on hiatus, two of the members — vocalist Mao and guitarist Mizuki — have gone on to form a new unit named The THIRTEEN. Prior to the unveiling of the members of The THIRTEEN, various visual kei artists like members of the GazettE, had been retweeting the duo’s new unit teaser and countdown, lending Mao and Mizuki a hand in building up the suspense of their new endeavor. The pair is set to release their first full album PANDEMIC on May 25, and perform their first live at Tokyo’s Akasaka BLITZ on June 24.

The THIRTEEN have released two teasers thus far, with a spooky first trailer asking, “What’s the truth “THIRTEEN” indicates?” and a second teaser with a preview of their music video for the album’s main track “CHAINSAW”.

PANDEMIC will be available in a regular and limited edition. The limited edition will come with a DVD of the “CHAINSAW” music video.

Sadie has been on hiatus since September 2015, reportedly using the break as “an opportunity to reconsider their music and their lives.” The THIRTEEN is not the first time Mao and Mizuki have teamed up to create new music. The duo previously formed a unit under the name of The MUMMY in October 2015. The MUMMY had a short band life-span that consisted of only a few live performances and no formal music releases.
