Vistlip (typeset as vistlip) is a five-member Japanese visual kei rock band that formed on July 7, 2007 and is currently signed to Delfi Sound and Marvelous Entertainment.

History[edit]

The band was reported to have been driving along Nagae Tunnel down the Joushin’etsu Expressway in Nagano city, Nagano prefecture, when the band's car, driven by the drummer Tohya, crashed into the tunnel wall at approximately 1:15 a.m. The band’s manager, Asako Sakakibara (31), had been in the backseat when the impact forced her out of the car. The damage that her body sustained led to her death. According to highway police, the rest of the passengers sustained minor neck and arm injuries and no other fatalities were reported.

After the accident the band took a six-month break from their activities. They resumed their activities in February 2011.
