Thee Michelle Gun Elephant singer Chiba Yusuke and Blankey Jet City bassist Terai Toshiyuki are back together for the first time in two years. In 2002, the pair formed ROSSO and released the album Bird. In April, the pair reunited under a new name, Raven, and released a new album titled Kagirinaku Aka ni Chikai Kuro. Chiba sang on six of the album’s eight songs. With Chiba and Terai making Raven a more active band, the pair have recruited multi-instrumentalist Sato Minoru to fill the line-up. The band plans to release more singles in June and July.
