It’s been a while we heard anything new from PATA’s band Ra:IN. But seems like they are not completely inactive!
DIE, the band’s keyboarder, made the opening for a possible new Ra:IN song, saying on his blog that he made it in the middle of a snowy night and shared it on Youtube.
Further, Ra:IN will be holding a concert at the Live House Chicken George in Kobe on February 29th. Please check the website for more information.
