Rentrer en Soi (リエントール アン ソイ?) was a Japanese visual kei rock band active from 2001 to 2008. In French, the band's name can be literally translated as "to enter in yourself/entering yourself" although this is not grammatically correct. The band was composed of five members, and had seen only one member change.

History[edit]

In 2001, the band started out with only four members—Satsuki, Takumi, Ryo, and Ao. In March 2003, Mika joined the band as the drummer. At the end of a tour in February 2004, Ao left the group and was replaced by Shun within a month.

The band was signed to European record label, Gan-Shin in 2006, and later to the American division of Free-Will.

On October 19, 2007, the band played at the Oni-Con convention in Houston, Texas. This was their first concert in the United States.

2008 began with the announcement of their single, "Stigmata", released in March, as well as a coupling tour, "Tour 2008 Death Match", with Unsraw through Japan.[1] The band was announced for the Free-Will event, "Clash Against Commercialism" at Nokia Theatre Times Square in New York City, however the event was cancelled two weeks prior due to difficulty obtaining visas for the musicians.[2] Shortly after, Rentrer en Soi again announced they would perform in the United States for the AnimeNEXT convention.[3]

On September 16, 2008, Rentrer en Soi announced that they would be breaking up. They released a best-of album on November 19, 2008 and their last live was planned for December 25, 2008.[4] The tracklist for Ain Soph Aur, their best-of album, cannot be viewed on their website. Ain Soph Aur features Kuuhaku no Joukei, a track that was not originally included on Yurikago, however it was featured as a PV on Cinema Cradle.[5]
