「Darkness Silence」 is Holic Service's next album

Holic Service had been hinting at their next major project for quite some time. The veil was lifted this past weekend as they unveiled a new banner containing basic information about KuKuDoDo's latest work. However, it has nothing to do with the world-renowned "Energy Reimen" Touhou-denpa series. 「Darkness Silence」 seems to focus exclusively on Hatsune Miku and will probably feature some serious new wave stuff if the cover is anything to go by.

Don't rule out Gumi's participation on vocals, kind of like how MOSAIC.WAV integrated the original Vocaloid starlet with mi~ko late last year. Remember that some of KuKuDoDo's very first songs originally featured Miku, then were re-recorded with Gumi; we might just see that scenario repeat itself in time. The only other tangible information we have at this point is the release date of June 20th 2010, as well as two simultaneous launch events: "とら祭り2010" in Tokyo and "DEAR MASTER!" in Osaka.

I'm not a big fan of vocaloids but these are still good news. I'm sure they'll come up with something original and quirky like usual.

I wish I could hear these four new songs as well, because KuKuDoDo describes them as "serious new wave" and I'm sure he has what it takes to make them unique. He also calls for his Denpa fans to give it a chance, so it might not be all that different from his usual stuff. Unfortunately the CD is only destined for release at these two events, so we're out of luck unless they appear on a later album.
