TAKA: It has been the third time to perform in Thailand. I was very grateful to have the opportunity to cross
over the border and the language barrier to perform on stage with Thai bands as well as sharing some great
moments with Thai fans. Unfortunately this time our band drummer could not join the event but I promised
next time the entire band members will come to Thailand to perform for sure. Thank you so much.
MASATO: It has been the third time to perform in Thailand. I was looking forward to have a chance to
perform with Thai bands. I had an opportunity to see those 3 bands live performances and I could
touch the love that every single fan has for Japanese bands, to be honest there performances were
really great. Unfortunately this time our band drummer could not join this event so we had to invite
other band drummer to performed but I think the live went well and everyone would be enjoy as
always. We will try our best to spend more times with Thai fans next time, if we have a chance for
holding live performance next time in Thailand we wish to see all of you again!
With those sweet words, will we have a chance to meet defspiral real soon? Stay tune!?
