Sukekiyo (stylized as sukekiyo and also referred to in katakana form as スケキヨ) is a Japanese band formed in 2013 by Dir en grey vocalist Kyo. It is sometimes referred to as a supergroup as every member of the band is or has been in other well-known acts in the Japanese visual kei movement, although only Kyo is currently active in another band.

History[edit]

Sukekiyo was formed as a side project[2] by Kyo along with members of other Japanese rock bands. The name derives from Seishi Yokomizo's novel The Inugami Clan.[3] The band's activities are by periods as Kyo's main project Dir en grey is still his priority.[4] Since the band released their first album, they have had a handful of tours in Japan, and more recently, Europe.[5]

In November 2014, they announced a new mini-album called Vitium, which contained 8 new tracks[6] and released on February 4, 2015.[7] The limited edition came with a second disc that includes collaborations with other artists such as X Japan vocalist Toshi and actor Hiroshi Mikami.[8]

On June 21, 2017, Sukekiyo released their second full-length studio album, Adoratio.[9] They covered "Gerbera" for the November 22 Mucc tribute album Tribute of Mucc -En-.[10]
