LOTMAN [ロットマン]

LOTMAN [ロットマン] is special, time-limited band created by Ren [苓] during Dali's 2009–2010 activity pause. Although not technically a solo project, Ren [苓] is the only official member, with everyone else being a support member. The band's music is a far cry from Dali's—this band's sound is more poppy, synth-heavy, and danceable. Despite the extreme sound change, Ren [苓] sounds just as in-his-element as ever. How long the band will be active is unknown. It was originally assumed that LOTMAN [ロットマン] would disband with Dali's revival live on 2010-01-11. However, LOTMAN [ロットマン] has since announced activities through April of 2010. This makes not only this band's future uncertain, but Dali's as well...
