Leading up to the release of MERRY’s upcoming mini-album,  for Japanese sheeple, out on April 17, we’ve had an artist photo reveal and a song trailer. It doesn’t end there however as the music video for the first track Toxicosis Island has now been uploaded!

Set in a dimly lit room, the band members occupy multiple squares consisting of flashing, multicolored neon lights as they perform the hectic number. The neon tubes are also laid out in a Rubik’s cube pattern that the band references at the beginning of the video, showing a Rubik’s cube with kana and kanji inscription. These same lights are overlayed with their performance as the camera moves erratically, completing the disorientating experience with fast cuts.

Left: Rubik’s cube with kana and kanji inscription. Right: Neon tubes laid out in a Rubik’s cube pattern.

The song starts with bassist Tetsu laying down his low and heavy bassline and drummer Nero crashing in on the drums before all chaos ensues. Vocalist Gara produces those high energy vocals complete with gang vocals and guitars to boot.
