A day many fans have been waiting for has finally arrived! The dissolved band once known as Lycaon is now taking shape as a new group called Initial’L. Consisting of only past members of Lycaon, and actually, the exact same line-up before the members parted ways. So unfortunately, no EVE (former drummer) and Mio (former bassist).

We can already expect the first single release to be out soon, titled MOON LIGHT DOWN, a three-edition release with seven new songs in total. Each edition will come with their exclusive b-side tracks, make sure to buy them all to receive all of the available songs. Sales starts on November 30!

Assumingly, the band name “Initial’L” is likely referring to Lycaon, but exactly how? We’ll let your imagination run wild on that. (Although, we keep accidentally read it as Initial D out of habit, which in fact is an anime, and totally unrelated.)

In preparation for the big announcement, Yuuki decided to start it off with a bit of a mysterious and sophisticated teaser on Twitter last week, regarding a revelation to happen on September 24 (JST). And as promised, right on the mark of midnight, Initial’L was revealed.

Without even realizing it, Authum is already here.

There will be an announcement made next week on Sunday, September 24.

Don’t miss it.

You can now observe the twitter username changes made by the members, they’re now all prefixed with “Initial_L_”, and their romanized name positioned right after.

What do you guys think we can expect from this band? Is it just a newly branded Lycaon, or will they try out entirely new things? Let us know in the comment section down below!
