You heard it right. There is a new, free visual kei app being released, and the ambassador will be none other than YOHIO! The app titled VisUnite will be released in the middle of September, will aim to connect both bands and fans. Its name is coined by combining the words "Visual" and "Unite", so apt to it's aim. More importantly, this app is free.
I am convinced that VisUnite will bring a new revolution to the Visual-kei world. I also hope to do my best to boost the Visual-kei industry. – YOHIO
On VisUnite, users will be able to browse photos and videos from their favorite artists (as well as some they would just be discovering) and support them via "LO▼U" (the app's version of "likes"). These LO▼Us determine the kinds of perks and promotions the bands receive, ranging from things as simple as advertisements and magazine features to things as extraordinary to special event appearance. This can all be attained depending on how many LO▼Us the artist receives from the fans!
VisUnite will become compatible overseas as well, establishing a platform to promote Japanese culture, visual kei and work towards the revival of the visual kei industry. Are you ready to be isUnite-d?
VisUnite is scheduled to be available in mid-September, but pre-orders are already available! Check out the websites below for more details.
＊Currently available in Japan only. Only browsing is available for outside of Japan.
